What a bunch of gobbly-gook. It seems Republicans are all for controlling personal behavior and Democraps are for controlling evything else. Perhaps Republicans are simply afraid to admit to their desire to dominate in ther own way, while Libertarians desire less control by everyone. Now, go ahead and show your fear and ignorance and claim that Libertarians are just anarchists.

The Democrats are controlling personal behavior than the Republicans are. With the Democrats, they call their social engineering "targeted tax breaks", or "tolerance education"...it's not a short list. Liberals, as exemplified by the Democrats, are totalitarian by nature.

I think that you are missing my point, as I was making the claim that most Libertarians are NOT anarchists. (BTW, in principle I have no problem with those who follow Rothbard and advocate a stateless society) The point which I was making is that minarchist libertarians, the majority, do want the state to uphold morality in a VERY limited sphere. I consider the non-initiation of force principle to be a moral principle that libertarians wish to see the state enforce.
