Liberalism if I had to choose. I like Libertarianism to an extent but goes way too far on some issues.

They're both good ideas, but I think Liberalism is better.  The idea that they both share  is that its the state's job to serve the people and not the people's job to glorify the state.

the result is a sense that we were told to attend a lavish dinner party that was going to be wonderful and by the time we got there, all the lobster and steak had been eaten, a fight had broken out, the police had been called and all that was left was warm beer and chips.

Liberalism -as an anecdote, I especially like Arlington County's snow removal ordinance, passed in the aftermath of the 2009-2010 winter.

Is there any equivalent in libertarian-oriented states like New Hampshire?

Both these ideologies' meaning differs between Europe and USA. That said, Liberalism has been, by far, a more important ideological current. It has shaped the societies of developed countries to a considerable extent.

That has got to be one of the most retarded proposals I have read on this forum.

Don't worry, I'm sure more will crop up shortly.
