    It might come down to semantics.  What you've described is so at odds with what my personal experiences have been that I wouldn't call such an outlook as you've put forth here as libertarian.

    •  i understand that feeling... (none)
      i've been there myself.

      however, i assure you there is a left-libertarian movement out there; some of whom vote LP, some of whom don't, some of who used to be anarchists, some of who used to be conservatives, and others formerly liberals, or communists, or whatever.  rather than an infantile focus on taxes, and unlimited property rights for individual and coporation, they focus on the real areas where excess government control affects the world, such as war, civil liberties abuses, cronyism, intellectual property issues, and other abuses of power.

    •  oops, also... (none)
      noe of whom have any power or influence within official "Libertarian" circles.
