Absolutely. I consider the political aspects of my general philosophies to be very much agreeable. Mostly because I don't have very many actual positions on "important" issues. The challenges I find to be the most vital don't have much to do with the ridiculous topics most discussed in mainstream politics and are quite universal. I view things like social issues, war, budgetary qualms, taxes, and immigration as secondary and extremely easy to work out through rational human interaction (rather than politic-speak), they've just been used remarkably well as smoke screens for decades. There are problems approached with alarming nonchalance, it just makes the rest of the political landscape seem that much more insignificant.

Within my own worldview, I am indeed a moderate, within the US political spectrum I am decidedly not.

There's no such thing as holding a "libertarian position" on an issue, it's literally an all or nothing philosophy.

Well there is a specific libertarian position on most issues, it just doesn't make you a libertarian to hold that one position.
What if you hold 75% of them?

In the United States.... No.

I might be considered a moderate in other countries.
