No not really. Labels are ridiculous though. I used to call myself a libertarian but find that labels just cause people to think you must fit in a box. My views would be considered libertarian by most but then there are different types of libertarians that would consider me "not true" because I'm not an anarchist or because I think global free trade is a myth that should not even be attempted with nations with lower labor standards than you or I would work under.

Considering that the term Libertarian initially referred to Anti-Statist, Anti Stalin Trotskyists.....it's a big yes, there. I'm a Socialist Libertarian myself. It's only in the United States that you'll find it means anything at _all_ close to conservativism or the worship of the Free Market as a Deity. As for whether you could be an "American Style Libertarian" (or "Libertard" as I like to call them) and still be a democrat....the answer is no. And a hard, big capital N capital O, NO http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Swl8frWSN... This is from the Libertarians _own_ propaganda pile.....if you're considering allying yourself with this party....I recommend watching this first....see if you agree with their 'oh so freedomy' plans for public education, first. Again, this is THEIR OWN words here, THEIR OWN video--this is their stance. It..speaks for itself.

I believe the quiz is wrong at most levels: My result was: Democrat Populist Philosophy Reform Party Republican Party Libertarian Libertarian Philosophy Neo-Libertarian Philosophy Conservative was not even listed for me, yet many of my friends consider me center-conservative.

People who identify with the Libertarian Party have no idea what Libertarian philosophy is and are really nothing but low self esteem Republicans, if you can get any lower than that.

Sure, why not? The Democrat party has a big tent that is inclusive. There's no litmus test like the Republicans have. Democrats are very socially liberal and many are moderately fiscally conservative (i.e. libertarian)

It can be, depending on the issue. For example, a libertarian might be pro-choice on abortion because he thinks the government doesn't have the right to interfere with a woman's right to choose. Or, for gay marriage for the same reason. Republicans, on the other hand, have opposite views. It's interesting the way the parties have aligned in that sense.

I think you're looking at this the wrong way. It's not saying you're either, it's just saying that you share views with those parties. Some of your views are shared and some aren't, doesn't mean you have to agree fully with either.

You can be a socially libertarian Democrat. I'm a fiscal progressive, but I'm libertarian on every other issue.

A sign of things to come yes. But what are those things? When the Dems lose VA bigtime, and lose NJ in a squeaker what will Pelosi, Reid, Obama, Axelrod and Rahmeee do? They will cram down American throats every vile piece of treasonous, economy ruining, ACORN grifting and socially destroying immoral crap laws they can imagine while shoving the most hardened cohort of Marxist and Amoral Cretins of liberal deconstructionist Judges up our other orifice. They will lock down America and force-feed the election results in 2010. The will hold the House and the 60 seat Senate if they have to assassinate some Republican Senators in states with Democratic governors to do it. They are playing for keeps. Victory ... or
