      The Libertarian Party (LP) is a fairly broad coalition of voters.  There are people in the LP that are far more socially liberal than most Democrats.  Libertarians (with a big "L") do universally believe in smaller government.  However, small government is not code word for slashing civilian agencies while growing the DoD like it is with the GOP.  Most Libertarians would like to see the 14th amendment modified to remove corporate personhood.  The founding fathers were fairly clear about limiting the rights of corporations.
