    Though, I'm dubious about how many true Libertarian Dems there are anywhere. Seems oxymoronic.

      that are only so because of Repub social conservatism...they are definitely libertarian-conservative fiscally. Since my term seems to have struck a nerve though, if I'm referring to kossacks will use 'civil libertarians', fair enough?

        True Libertarians are an odd lot. They hate Government and worship the free market like a religion, so they don't fit in with the Democrats, but they are socially liberal, anti-religion and pro drug so don't play well with Repubs either. Then you have sham Libertarians like Rand and Ryan who pick and choose from Libertarian ideology to suit their needs. My guess is that any Dem who calls themself Libertarian is really just a fiscal conservative with socially liberal views. Those people are unlikely to be big Snowden supporters / anti-NSA IMO.
