Who is talking about the fragment party, that calls itself "Libertarian?" When Ron Paul ran on that ticket, many elections back, it was nothing like the present.

By contrast, Dr. Paul has been running as a Conservative Republican, in Texas, for years. The present small party that is closest to his thinking is the "Constitution Party," whose 2008 candidate, Pastor Baldwin, is certainly not "pro-choice."

Incidentally, if I was not trying to be a peacemaker, here, I would point out that referring to killing babies as "pro-choice," suggests a perceptual deficit. (See this piece on Al Gore: A Woman's Right To Choose.)

Citing a party's name as defining what people actually believe is not very reliable. Would you suggest that either George W. Bush or Senator McCain defined what is intended by all advocates of a "Republican form of government?"

I’m saying that if someone is going to call himself or herself a “republican”, then they better get used to that being associated with the republican party.

Call yourself libertarian, and I’m going to go with my experience of many years with libertarians all over, none of whom were pro-life, all of whom were pro-choice.

If they don’t like the associations made with the word libertarian, then they shouldn’t use it.

As a constitutionalist myself, I support the constitution party candidate.
