I graduated from "conservatism" tio libertarianism when I realized that libertarianism is what conservatism claimed to be: support and defense of life, liberty, limited gov't, the Constitution, the founding principles.
Interventionism/world policing, war on drugs, foreign aid, TSA, NCLB, bailouts, etc. all represent infringements on these principles and as Beck has stated, represent progressivism from the right.
So-called conservatives claim to despise the nanny state at home while supporting a nanny-to-the-world foreign policy. So-called conservatives claim to be pro-life while quickly and comfortably placing soldiers, officers, and civilians in harm's way for interventionism, war on drugs, etc.
Support Ron Paul if you agree.
