But lots of people don't know they're libertarians yet. Most people don't think about politics.

My experience with Libertarians is that they're Republicans who like to smoke pot. No matter how much they protest, they generally vote Republican across the board and don't disagree with the Republicans on much. Okay with the GOP's racism, militarism, and interfering with medical decisions between a woman and her doctor, but they part ways with them on drugs because, like I said, they like to smoke pot.

Well I am an American and I'm afraid that's usually how it goes. Libertarians in our neck of the woods seem to feel that only governments can oppress people and massive corporations are run by angels who would never dream of doing anything horrible or underhanded to succeed and that we would probably have cured cancer and brought about a utopia, were it not for government regulations crushing the cure cancer and bring about a utopia corporations out of spite.

I had not heard of propertarians. I did a brief search and will probably read more later. I was thinking more in terms of AnCaps, myself.
