    I voted for Obama, but drone strikes, civil liberties, and the War on Drugs made it a closer call than the Dems should be comfortable with. I wouldn't take my vote for granted in 2016 if the Dems don't get with the sanity program on some of these issues.

      You differentiate yourself from most people with libertarian leanings. I feel fairly confident in saying that most self-defined libertarians care more about guns, low taxes, deregulation and money than about free speech and human life.

        it's just a guess.

          Most of whom strike me as paranoid racist nutjobs who don't feel a sense of responsibility towards others. Just because I agree with them on some issues doesn't make them not so. And yes, Ron Paul is a paranoid racist nutjob.
