Libertarians has been co-opted by the far right. At this point, what is a libertarian other than a conservative? Holding some principals that align with liberals is terrific and a natural fit, but I just don't see this happening. It is too bad really. If we were talking about what is some of the stated core bits of libertarians it could work well with democrats.
I agree I hate to see the fake libertarians who are basically just tea party idiots.
Libertarians aren't co-opted by the far right. We are the far right.
There are far left libertarians too that people seem to be forgetting about. Those would be anarcho-socialists. Libertarian isn't synonymous with far right.
Anarcho socialists aren't libertarian. So no, that's just socialists pretending like they're anti government
