There are a lot of fringe types who talk libertarian rhetoric but are hardly philosophical purists. In the local repub (kelly) events, these were the maddest types. Combine that with youth and an arizona wild west attitude and you've got a bad formula.

Obviously, there are nutjobs of every stripe. But i have played poker with a number of young guys here who spout mangled libetarian stuff they get from glenn beck. They call themselves libertarian and are really socially obnoxious. (As in wanting to talk politics at a poker game).

Its pure speculation at this point and isn't really sound of me to engage in it. And i know that. The number of these types i see here have somewhat jaundiced me toward libertarian views.
Sorry, the purist argument is not gonna fly on this one because for all the different kinds of libertarians there are, and it is a big tent that runs from left to right, the one thing they have in common which classifies them as libertarian is the non-aggression doctrine. Beware of false prophets in that movement and look for that identifier. Just because someone calls them self a libertarian doesn't make it so. There are way too many around today donning this label who aren't. They just have a shallow understanding as to what it means.
