Libertarian?

As I sit here, I have been reading information on the official web site for the Libertarian Party, which is this: http://www.lp.org/ Now what I want to point out to you first of all is this, from the intro:

   What Is The Libertarian Party?

          The Libertarian Party is your representative in American politics.
          It is the only political organization which 
          respects you as a unique and competent individual.

   America's Heritage

          Libertarians believe in the American heritage of liberty,
          enterprise, and personal responsibility.
          Libertarians recognize the responsibility we all share to
          preserve this precious heritage for our children and grandchildren.

   Free and Independent

          Libertarians believe that being free and independent is a great
          way to live. We want a system which encourages all people to
          choose what they want from life; that lets them live, love,
          work, play, and dream their own way.

   Caring For People

          The Libertarian way is a caring, people-centered approach to politics.
          We believe each individual is unique. We want a system which respects
          the individual and encourages us to discover the best within ourselves and
          develop our full potential.

   Principled; Consistent

          The Libertarian way is a logically consistent approach to politics
          based on the moral principle of self-ownership.
          Each individual has the right to control his or her own body,
          action, speech, and property. Government's only
          role is to help individuals defend themselves from force and fraud.

   Tolerant

          The Libertarian Party is for all who don't want to push other
          people around and don't want to be pushed 
          around themselves. Live and let live is the Libertarian way.


As I read this, it becomes very appealing. Though I still don't want to tie myself down to any one party, thus continuing my position as an independent, I think I will be voting Libertarian more often from now on. So I am feeling very good about my vote for the Libertarian Senate nominee.

Chaotic Blessings;
