I am a libertarian and do not use the labels given above. We believe in individual liberty, self reliance, and personal responsibility with freedom to succeed or fail in all endeavors with neither government support or restriction. The government should only step in to prevent fraud, trespass, or theft. On social issues as long as we are not disturbing our neighbors or harming anyone our personal behavior is our own business. On foreign policy we reject the interventions, alliances, and wars abroad. I also reject the right of the government or any other individual to choose my friends and enemies for me.
