Is this true or false, as I want to understand Libertarianism from Libertarians themselves. When you boil it down, Libertarianism is Republican economics, who care about civil rights. Comment and correct me, if this isn't true.

For US libertarianism: I would agree that is a rough, general explanation. Libertarianism itself is the belief in limiting government power (at all levels), specifically in social areas (as you can be a libertarian socialist or capitalist, etc.)

Naaah, not Republican economics, I don't see corporate welfare being a big libertarian goal.

Being Libertarian to me means that I would rather the federal gov't stick to defense and otherwise allow state and local gov't to take care of all other issues. We aren't all the same. Most organized (L) events end with everybody arguing.

We differ with each other on abortion, gay marriage (some for, some say gov't shouldn't be involved). Libertarians are more diverse (politically) than the other two parties. I differ from most in that I am for many local assistance programs.

I think like a democrat locally and a conservative federally.

We care about civil rights. We were the leaders during the civil rights movement.

They're republican economics, democrat socially, not morality to speak of, and total anarchists.
