You are way off on Libertarians. They take a stand for the constitution. The other two parties (especially that one on the left) are actively destroying it. Libertarians, like conservatives, have taken a huge stand for personal responsibility for ones actions.
I happen to know many Libertarians, none of them do drugs.
I am going to play devils advocate here, you said conservatives want freedom. You also seemed to mention pot in every sentence pertaining to Libertarians. Does the freedom to smoke pot infringe on your freedom in anyway? If yes, how, and doesn't smoking tobacco, or drinking alcohol fit the same category? Is freedom not the ability to do what you want, so long as it does not harm anyone else?
You said "There are no criminals, nothing is illegal." That is not true. They just stick to real crimes, such as theft, rape, and murder. If your actions do not harm anyone else, "go for it." They treat people like adults, and don't legislate personal safety, or morality. If you don't wear a seat belt, or helmet, that is your business. If you want to do drugs, or live a promiscuous life, fine, but don't ask big brother to bail you out when, or if, you hurt yourself.

I think Conservatives are more like James Madison and Libertarians are more like Patrick Henry.
