  • Neo cons talk about small government yet they support policing the world.

  • In my country they are called liberal-nationals and they are almost always consistent.

  • I dont like either group but libertarians are much less consistent with their beliefs

  • Well when someone says libertarian I think Democrat, and the Democrat party was in complete opposition of black rights, but now that they have lost that they pop a 180 and start calling Republicans racists.

Neither! Both jump between political party and swap meaning and get muddied up in that process! Conservatism changes wildly based upon what culture you think that you are preserving, and if what you're trying to conserve even ever existed! Violent religious radicals tend to be conservative, and from all sorts of different religions! And Libertarianism has been DESTROYED by America's right wing propaganda.

Neither. Both are full of ideological inconsistencies, which are destructive to the progression of society.

@Brian: Why did you have to throw in that second part? Conservatism is saying that things should be a set way, which sometimes is necessary. And Libertarianism is saying that everybody should just leave everybody else alone. They get corrupted and both have areas where they aren't appropriate, but it isn't necessary to rush to calling both destructive.

"Why did you have to throw in that second part?" - Because I can, and it's my opinion..?

@Brian: That's that you can, not why you did. And if you did it just because you could then it wasn't especially important. You're reminding me of a little kid who calls somebody names for ten straight minutes and says they did it because "it's a free country!"

I think both are one and the same

Conservatives. I can at least give them that.

It's a shame that libertarian nowadays means purist capitalist, in essence. It used to cover the left-right spectrum.

Last time I checked, there were more than these two parties
