Libertarian is not the word

I have looked closely at Libertarians in the past and while the differences (between them and my preferences) are smaller, they are still there and significant. I will link my LJ post on the subject when I get back to my computer. I think everything the current governments do can be accomplished without taxes and with businesses and individuals paying for public infrastructure if it is set up right. This amounts to little or no government rather than a Libertarian style government. You should be asking me "freedom from what?" and I would answer "freedom to fail or succeed, freedom to be a superhero or idiot". The governments do things as a general rule to protect people from stupidity and failure but I would prefer if they just used other means to eliminate the need to do anything themselves. Insurance and corporate responsibility built into law.
