LIBERTARIAN RIGHT

The Libertarian Right hold conservative views for the most part, although they tend to think of themselves as centrists because their views on most social issues are more moderate than their counterparts on the Right. Their attitudes toward personal responsibility and economic redistribution, however, are decidedly Right.

To the Libertarian Right, people are the makers of their own destinies. Regardless of where they start from, the Libertarian Right generally believe that individuals have the capability to achieve their goals if they work hard enough. They are therefore skeptical of government intervention and unions, which they see as perpetuating a cycle of dependency and inhibiting self-reliance.

The Libertarian Right tends to support the integration of religious and ethnic minorities as opposed to a multiculturalist approach. They believe that people should be treated as individuals, not as members of a particular subset of society.

The Libertarian Right generally favour capitalism over its alternatives because of the emphasis it places on the individual and its perceived rewards for hard work.

People in this group are generally well-educated and non-religious. They are unlikely to be immigrants. Most do not have a strong sense of belonging to their local community compared to other groups and are the least likely to be active participants in civic life.

YOUR NEXT BEST FIT: Steadfast Right
YOU ARE LEAST LIKE: Post-materialist Left

I assume a libertarian would be somewhat more popular in Washington than Florida.
82  Forum Community / Forum Community / Re: Since joining the Atlas Forum, have you moved more leftward or rightward? on: April 21, 2016, 10:52:35 pm
Since 2010? I've probably moved a bit to the left, mostly on economics. I oted left on economics and same on socially.

Kind of like the threads about Kentucky and Massachusetts, but mixing it up a bat.

It can only work if all states adopt it at the same time, effective replacing the electoral college with a national popular vote.

Congratulations, you found an ideology that's contradictory in the very etymology of its name.
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Anarcho-capitalism
You are correct, a state is required for private ownership and property rights to be to be enforced. Of course, a state is also required for collective ownership to be enforced, making anarcho-communism equally impossible.

Only ones I like here.... JFK and Kemp. I see no anti-establishment conservatives besides the two of them. Looks like no Reagan Revolution, no rise of evangelicals,  left wing of GOP is stronger but conservatives have no place to go.

Kasich/Ryan is a pretty conservative ticket.
94  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / International What-ifs / Re: Worldwide Electoral College on: April 20, 2016, 12:48:38 am
I wonder a candidate could win just by winning India and East Asia. Of course, I have no idea if they would ever even vote for the same candidate, but it's a weird thought nonetheless.
95  General Politics / Individual Politics / Re: Which Paulitician do you prefer? on: April 20, 2016, 12:44:30 am
Rand, I guess. Both are too non-interventionist for me, although I would still pick Rand over Cruz or Trump.
96  Forum Community / Forum Community / Re: Have you been to the place depicted in the previous poster's avatar? on: April 20, 2016, 12:42:45 am
Technically yes, although I don't remember it. My family lived in St. Petersburg for about a year, from when I was around six months old to when I was about a year and a lah old.
97  General Politics / Individual Politics / Re: Who would you vote for in the hypothetical New York GOP Primary? on: April 19, 2016, 03:32:56 pm
Kramer, of course.

Are these actual characters in a TV show?

...You've never seen Seinfeld!? Shocked Huh

He might actually be to the right.
