Yes, it seems that many self-appointed libertarians feel that way.


Are there any other kind?

That's a way too simplistic way to look at things, imo.

I think if it weren't for the current makeup of conservatives being oversensitive to social issues, I'd be happy to consider myself one of them. Until they worry about what seemingly matters more, I'll self appoint myself :pop:

It boggles my mind that there are not more fiscally conservative/socially liberal voters. I guess its a product of the two-party system for our entire lives -- people seem to align themselves with their party of choice in lock step.

I think this is kind of where I was going - all of my friends seem to be this way.

That's how you have to be. Like you said, two-party system doesn't necessarily provide that option.

Gary Johnson 99%
Virgil Goode 72%
Mitt Romney 68%
Barack Obama 13%

There is no issue where I do not side the most with Gary Johnson.

i'm still thinking about what you meant to get across...

I'd imagine from your perspective it may seem like there is a lot of emerging/converting LIBs in the last couple years.

Is this what you were trying to touch on?

And the quiz itself.

http://www.isidewith.com/

Apparently, I side with Jill Stein, the Green candidate. (94%)

I also sided to a lesser extent with Obama (84%) and Rocky Andersen, the Justice candidate (who I have never heard of - 75%)

I did not side at all with Romney. HA!

When I took the test in the PDT I got Jill Stein, Gary Johnson, Obama (I forget the %s). This time, I got Rocky Anderson (81%), Stein (80%) and Johnson (74%).

I've been talking about Rocky Anderson for a few weeks now, so I'm not surprised that's where the poll took me this time. So there you go.

I agree, because that's probably the party I'd join if I had the option.

I got the feeling that he meant that there are a lot of people who describe themselves as 'libertarian' but don't really understand what that means.

What tif said. Also that people sometimes seem to be libertarian only on certain issues. Making them not really that libertarian at all, I guess.

It works the same way with the two major parties, though.
