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.

1Died in office of natural causes
2Resigned to become Chief Justice of the Supreme Court, and was sworn in one day later.
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.
