I seem to have shifted from being a liberal to being a libertarian. Hmmm… Anyway, educators might be pleased to read about this too, that “increasing numbers of high school and college students are being taught that politics is more than a simplistic Left-Right line”.
LIBERTARIANS support maximum liberty in both personal and economic matters. They advocate a much smaller government; one that is limited to protecting individuals from coercion and violence. Libertarians tend to embrace individual responsibility, oppose government bureaucracy and taxes, promote private charity, tolerate diverse lifestyles, support the free market, and defend civil liberties.
