STATES RIGHTS/LAWS: supercede Federal, with what exceptions where? i.e. civil rights. Is that plausible?
What if Texas outlaws abortion? Is that fine with you too? Where does that leave an impoverished pregnant teenage girl in Midland? How about sodomy laws, which leads to persecution of homosexuals?
There is a complexity here that I think is not addresses by the diaspora of Libertarians, hence you are only 2%.
DRAMATIC REDUCTION OF SIZE OF FEDERAL GOV. - Yahoo! But how does any of this come about under Libertarianism when there is no unity outside of personal ideology of independence and anti-authoritian attitudes which is so subjective?

I'm surprised by how far to the right my own little dot is. I expected it to have moved toward the liberal side since I last tested a year or so ago.
I cannot agree with the strict non-interventionism of many (perhaps most) Libertarians. I believe that humanitarian intervention in foreign affairs is rarely necessary, but it cannot be taken off the table

Federally though all Libertarians regardless of beliefs have one common demand REMOVE THE GOVERNMENT FROM MY LIFE!
We are the True guardians of the Constitution!
