It seems a common misconception of libertarians is they all want to do drugs and own guns. Some call them "Republicans who smoke pot" or "Democrats who have taken an economics class."

Hmm... all I have to say is, let's look at the insight this question allows... should we choose to take notice. This is why the third party has such trouble... the Third Party is no more than a confusing meshing of a bipolar political system. People really do have a mess of a time thinking in 3D, don't we?

Libertarians??

How to deal? Who are they? Which side do they uphold? WHERE ON GOD'S GREAT EARTH DO THEY COME FROM? ...Wowness!! If I said they were a bunch of nonmorality based conservatives, would this help?

I think the message of libertarians and populists really resonate with Americans because we all have a touch of those ideas in us, all the way back to the founding of the country.

I don't think either of those things

Nope, I assume they don't trust the government. For some reason when ever I think of libertarianism I think of anarchism... it's sort of a reflex.

I'm a libertarian, and I'm basicly a republican who smokes pot.

I think idealist.

You'd probably be less polite in your choice of words now.

My friend Mark is a libertarian. He thinks that the government should leave him alone, outside of providing basic services.

all the libertarians i know do own guns, but don't do drugs, although they're for legalized marijuana.

I'd assume that a druggie gun owner was a republican.

I'd assume 15 year old boy who doesn't leave his house. Or a member of anonymous. Actually definitely a member of anonymous.

As a Libertarian, I despise Anonymous more than... just about everyone else does.

Maybe I'm not a Libertarian.
5 yrs ago, 8 mos ago - Monday 12/24/12 - 11:46:20 PM EST (GMT-5)
No. I only assume they're an idiot.

Libertarians are OK. The Republican-lite faction can go straight to hell along with the paleoconservatives; but there are actually a fair number of libertarians who are somewhat culturally progressive and don't demonize working class people as leeching layabouts. I find these types to be less annoying than a lot of liberals, actually.

I once had a drunken conversation with a political scientist where I told him I was a libertarian (I meant liberal, just got the words mixed up and did not realise my error until much later) and things didn't go down well at all.

Guns? Yes.

Drugs? No.

Drugs is more of a liberal thing.

i don't think drug use is necessarily a liberal or conservative thing. but i do know that some conservatives favor punishment over rehab when it comes to illegal drugs.

also IIRC libertarians are for legalization of all drugs, even the ones that are clearly bad for you (meth, crack, heroin come to mind).

I just assume all Utahns own guns and use mind altering drugs. Makes life simpler.
