Not really, there are liberal, socialist, and conservative libertarians, its just the conservative ones that end up in the spotlight. I lean on the socialist liberal side.
I think there should be a smaller government. I hate that there is a law for every damned thing. I think people should be able to drink, smoke, own guns, have abortions, do genetic research to that which the please. But I believe with out government people are idiots and therefor am thankful for laws against crazy animal testing, against pedophiles, and anti making half donkey half human sub species.
I am against the government collecting money for things like unemployment and welfare. I hate those systems. I think if they are going to give money to someone with out a job that person should be doing 40 hours of community service a week or get a license to babysit 5 other kids for people doing community service.
I am however pro a socialized health care system regardless of everyones complaints on the manner and I do believe at a state level college should be free to near free in which I love Obamas $4000 tax credit for doing community service.
So yeah, this puts me into the libertarian party on the liberal end of it.
