/but still vote Republican.
There should be a great many people embarrassed to be associated with either of the two major parties. They have a stranglehold on the electoral process, having had a duopoly for the last 100 years or so and as such, are responsible for the sorry manner in which the Government has governed.
A government that is less prone to intervening in the affairs of other countries and the personal lives of our fellow citizens is at the core of Libertarian philosophy. There are still a great many people that wish to live their lives as they see fit and, to allow others to do the same. Particularly if they are not asked to subsidize those countries unwilling to pay for their own defense and those individuals unwilling to do the work necessary to live the life they feel they are entitled to.
There are of course jobs so big and important that a certain pooling of resources is necessary to achieve the task but, a leaner, smaller, less parasitic government sounds pretty good to me.
