I consider myself to fall into each category (except for pacivist) for different circumstances.  Don't be a hater.

Nice try to put words in my mouth.

I wasn't saying simply to conform to the selections. But rather, choose the one that BEST fits you, and then state your concerns.

Sometimes yes and sometimes no but isn't everyone.  You know you set yourself up for that one.
You are saying none of these off the rack Libertarian styles are a best fit for you .  Then why don't you post  your beliefs taylor made as to what kind of Libertarian you are. 

Here are some more off the rack suggestions mostly for entertainment purposes:

The FENG SHUI Libertarian - You attempt to achieve the most harmonious arrangement of your beliefs in freedom that benefit you the greatest and harming others the least.

The Wanderlust Libertarian - You sway from one Libertarian arch type to another dependent upon who you are physically closest to at any give time and how much influence they have over you.

The Contrarian Libertarian - You love to attend meetings and debate endlessly about insignificant points.  When a vote comes up and everyone agrees you will still vote no just to be different and difficult.

The Little Orphan Annie Libertarian - You feel orphaned by the other political parties as a candidate and this is your last shot at Daddy Warbucks so you join the Libertarian party to run for political office.

I voted for minarchist. I say we hack it down to that, see how it goes, and then make modifications. That said, if the 'minimum' level of government that works well is zero, than so be it.

"Crackpot conspiracy-theorist"

The woman who claimed government was controlled by a satanic, small group of people, and wanted to open borders to destroy the middle and lower classes... Yeah, absolutely a crackpot. Hilarious though. :lol:

Yeah, I heard that caller. I'll be the first to tell you that there is conspiracy and corruption in the federal government just as there was in the Roman Republic and just as there has been since the birth of this country.

But good grief...her theory about open boarders destorying the middle class as a satantic plot is totally unsupported and isn't even a viable position to take because open boarders doesn't destroy anyone or anything.

I don't see the need to decide for any of these options, only the direction is important. If a country starts a process to become a libertarian state, the first obvious step is the small-government, followed by the minarchy, then the free market variants and so on. At some point, people may find out that they can not go the next step because it would not work. But today, for us, the answer to the question is not really relevant and would be speculation anyway.

I'm with the, "I'm the 7th kind.  I am the individualist libertarian who doesn't see everything as fitting into 1 of 6 categories." also.
I know that I can cross-off Pacifists and the other extreme Limited-Government Libertarians and most Minarchists views. I don't like the vigilantism either. I take the stance that you should only stop a crime not inflict the punishment. The punishment is the responsibility of the DROs. I guess that would aline me most with the Self-Defense Libertarians.
