no, Their culture and governments that arose from that culture would say otherwise. As would opinion polls.

.....Here is some data

More than two-thirds of Libertarians are men.
94% of Libertarians who identify themselves by race are described as non-Hispanic Caucasians.
As for libertarian leaners, 81 percent are white, and 53 percent are men.

Libertarians do a horrible job at selling small government to people. Big authoritarian government is not candy canes and ice cream with honey coming out of the sink tap. It's Hitler,Stalin,Kim Jung Un,Mussolini,Franco,Castro and Mao.

Small/minimal government
-more jobs(extremely low taxes or no income taxes. This would help small business greatly)
-better jobs(because of real competition, and preventing business from using the government to shutdown competition)
-cheaper products/services(because of competition and low overhead from no corporate taxes)
-Instant income raise(the fair tax with rebates)
-IRS and tax reporting:small businesses save money from book keeping and accounting etc = more money to hire more employees to sell more products to make more money.
-A voluntary charity tax would solve social safety nets without the massive overhead of government,without the inefficiencies of government. The Red Cross and Salvation Army are donation based and they do fine. Imagine what would happen if millions of people had the option to fund a social services through voluntary taxes.
-We are against racial discrimination.
-less outsourcing(no corporate tax,no IRS reporting,no government enforced healthcare driving up labor costs) because its just cheaper to open a factory/plant/warehouse/facility/etc here and save on the transport costs and time to market.
-Free to have any sexual preference you want.
-Free to have any religious preference you want.

The authoritarians have done an excellent job of scaring people away from minimal government and libertarianism.

To an authoritarian...

Big government = Safety.Social service programs(funded through theft)Stability,high income because of a government enforced $15 minimum wage.

Small government = Starving on the street,in need of medication, sick with your kids, while billionaires and corporations have government enforced fiefdoms,sweat shops working for $0.25/hr with no benefits.
