Most libertarians are strict constitutionalists. And many of us are Christian. Your post makes little sense.

Actually it is the libertarians who make no sense. And who have no historical accurate opinion of the nature of man - mankind seldom if ever has joined hands and solved the worlds problems - because it is contrary to man's nature - which is why religion is so important and government for good or ill fills the void. Libertarians as a rule seek not to make life any better for anyone else but to erase any proscriptions on debauchery.
All political candidates call themselves freedom-lovers, but they are not. Neither major party really opposes government control of the economy or of our personal lives. I'm a libertarian because I see the false choice offered by political left and right: Democrats talk about personal liberty; Republicans talk about economic freedom. But what they do once in power belies their words.

I say we're best off if government just leaves us alone to our peaceful cooperation with whomever we please. Let politicians advocate moral behavior. Let them give to charities. But leave government -- which is physical force -- out of it....
