I like him on Fox, but I wouldn't ever vote for him as POTUS.
The only issue I have with your Party is the name... you should call yourself the Jeffersonians.

I am happy with Libertarian. I think as we lose more and more of our Liberties, the Libertarian name means something.
Tell me what liberties we have lost and then tell me which ones Obama took from you. Please I want to hear them. I need enlightened. Nothing has changed for me, I can still own property, feel safe in and out of my home, can call you right wingers no mater what party you are affiliated with that you are bunch of dumb a$$es and don't have to worry about being arrested, but maybe I do have my head in the sand.
It is not just Obama but the growth and burden of the Federal Government that is eroding your Liberties.
DHS is but one symptom. Abuses by the IRS another.
The bigger the government, the less Freedoms, for instance;
We give a much higher percentage of our labor to government, which is a form of enslavement. 101 years ago we didn't have an Income Tax. Then, when it began, the top rate would be 8%. Today, nearly 40% and it won't stop.
We are now forced to buy Health Insurance, burn Ethanol blended gasoline, pay usage fees/taxes through telecommunication companies and more. We have Sin taxes and soon Carbon taxes. I'm sure if I sat here I could add more and I'm sure the readers could too.
Government is in businesses it shouldn't like; marriage, banking and morals to name a few.
If you can't see it, you may be too far gone!
Any deviation from The Constitution is a loss of Liberty and our Fed Gov has greatly over-reached its authority at the blessing of both the Dems and Repubs.
Menmon, does the gov have the Right to force you to wear seatbelts?

Taxes are the way of the world....government has to tax to fund itself and based on the explosion of debt it has not taxed enough.
Everything you mention is giving more liberties...you may not like them but that is what it is.
Mandated healthcare I think is better than my liberties being used to pay the way of a freeloader....so I see it as more liberty for me.
