If you are referring to me, then yes, I do tend to follow many of the Libertarian principles, although I feel that some federal/state/local government oversight is necessary for the good of the whole. That doesn't mean I think the feds should be in business for themselves. But, for things like utilities or commodities required by law, having the government regulate can, and should, be allowed. The anti-trust laws are a good example.

Libertarians would tend to disagree here...
