Woe to be a Libertarian?

I'm a libertarian. I'm an ideologue when it comes to believing in free markets and free people though I do hold some fairly conservative personal convictions - broadly speaking, I do believe that it's ultimately a matter of personal choice what people believe so long as they do not harm others. It's unfortunate that the Libertarian Party in the US gets known as the party of whack jobs, hippies and pot smokers. For those who know me, I'm probably only ever confused with the first. But here's a response to a column in the WSJ over a few of the other popular misconceptions of libertarians.
