I would like to know if there are any Libertarians / Ron Paul supporters here. Libertarian is the middle ground between the two, IMO. I am socially liberal and economically conservative. I believe that the federal government has its place for some laws and regulations, but not everything. Federal government is for protecting the individual liberties that this country was founded on. Federal government is also for the protection of the country from foreign invasion. (It is easy to forget that other people in the world will hate us when a World War has not occurred in over 60 years, but history does repeat). One thing the federal government is bad at is managing money for the entire country. In general, many people are bad at managing money and politicians are no different. Libertarian is about ending the fed and turning control of money to the real public, not some shady federal organization. Libertarian is also about bringing home the troops and protecting are own borders. Libertarian is about allowing state and local governments to have more control of what is socially and economically suitable for those communities, while protecting the individual liberties. It bothers me when misinformed people think Libertarians are anarchist, which I hear a lot. To me, Libertarian views make the most sense and I just want to know if anyone shares the same view.
