You would have to define "Lean"
We believe in the smallest amount of government possible while realising government to an extent is a necessary "evil"

Ok, here's some problems with libertarians.
2.6 Monopolies and Corporations
Basically according to libertarians, it's ok to have a huge monopoly strangling any competition out and thus creating a corporate state.
Libertarians believe in education only if you can afford it. Thus creating a serf class for the aforementioned corporate state.
2.9 Health Care
Libertarians believe in health care only if you can afford it. Thus giving more power to the corporate state.
2.10 Retirement and Income Security
Libertarians want to steal your social security and give it to people like Bernie Madoff.
So, from what I gathered from the OP's link is that libertarians want a corporate state, where the poor become serfs and either succumb to the demands of the corporate overlords who would have absolutely zero regulations, or they die.
To boil it down, the Constitution according to the Libertarian party would probably look something like this:
We the Businesses of the United Corporations, in Order to gain a more perfect market share, establish Total Financial Control, insure domestic Trade domination, provide for the Shareholders, promote the Profits of our Corporations, and secure the Blessings of the financial institutions to ourselves and our Prosperity, do ordain and establish this Constitution for the United Corporations of America.
Basically the motto for libertarians should be "Me First and [snip] YOU!"
