May I ask what these many labels were?
She self identified as a capitalist, an egoist, an objectivist and a romantic off the top of my head.

I think that applies to R and D more than libertarian. I mean libertarian is a philosophy. However, if it's unproductive, why discuss it at all?

What I have more of an issue with, is people not really familiarizing themselves with something enough to really know what it stands for, especially not knowing the founders of it, and labeling themselves incorrectly. It's political illiteracy.
The concept of Libertarianism is broad enough that it is worthwhile to discuss in some situations yet almost pointless in others.
