You are very close to being a libertarian. You differ from libertarians in that, generally speaking, libertarians believe a pregnant woman should have freedom to determine her own physical condition, and libertarians oppose foreign military adventures unless there is a direct threat from the targeted foreign nation. Libertarians generally support the "war on terror," but most believe that the war should be directed at the defined enemy of Al Queda. Most libertarians believe that there has never been any evidence that Iraq or Saddam Hussein posed a threat to the U.S., or had any link to Al-Queda.
Many libertarians believe that the threat of terrorism can be lessened by not meddling in foreign countries' political affairs.
Like most political parties, not all adherents agree with all the planks. Ron Paul, D-TX, is a good example of the general libertarian view of things.
Hope this helps.

...Well said. May I add, what ever party affinity, Look at each issue, and decide how you feel about it...
...And another thing, dlt, this recovering libertarian, is convinced that the fight in Iraq, by this administration is justified. and the President has my support...
