No offense to true libertarians. I certainly respect you. But I can't help but believe calling yourself a libertarian is a huge fad in this country right now, especially among young people. I've talked to several self-identifying libertarians who don't understand, in the slightest, the concept of individual liberty or the Constitution. I think you can give all the credit for this to people like Bill Maher, who parades around, calling himself libertarian, and in reality, doesn't even know what it means. Again, I have no problem with libertarians, and I agree with them more often than not. I've certainly met my fair share of real libertarians, as well. However, I'm usually skeptical when I meet somebody who identifies as such.
