The Freedom Movement and the Libertarian Electorate

A look at what and who libertarians are. One pointed quote: "Libertarians are treated as if they have quirky beliefs precisely because they are consistent. In a country where a lot of people have inconsistent beliefs, a consistent adherence to priciple sometimes looks pretty unusual."

And a useful reminder: "A lot of the people who say they favor smaller government in the abstract, tend to favor larger government in the particular. You don't get that many true libertarians in big business because [..] big business likes regulation that disadvantages their competitors."
