I would consider myself a conservative with a few libertarian meanings. However, the reason why I agree with a few libertarian viewpoints is not because of "liberty", but because that viewpoint brings about a certain conservative value. For example, I am hostile to some parts of the war on drugs because I think they break up the black family. That is, I don't support scaling back the drug war because I think it is your right to consume a poison that enslaves and kills, I support scaling back the drug war because too many men are behind bars who should be at home being fathers.

Economics is where I have the most passion. I am a huge fan of Hazlitt, Bastiat, Friedman, etc.
