Poll: Republican voters have embraced libertarian valuesUnited Liberty ^ | 9/12/13 | Jason PyePosted on Thursday, September 19, 2013 12:45:28 PM by shego

The libertarian philosophy is taking the Republican Party by storm, according to a poll conducted by FreedomWorks, a DC-based grassroots service center with over 6 million members.

With Sen. Rand Paul R-KY, Rep. Justin Amash R-MI and many other liberty-minded politicians gaining influence, libertarianism has generated new interest inside the Republican Party, much to the chagrin of the GOP’s political establishment….”FreedomWorks’ poll shows that 42 percent of Republicans have a favorable view of the word ‘libertarian,’ and only 10 percent don’t know the word, compared to 27 percent who don’t know nationally,” they added.

And the term “libertarian” may still turn off some Republican voters, the basic message of the philosophy earns significant favor. The poll found that 68% of Republicans and Republican-leaning independents agree with the statement that “individuals should be free to do as they like as long as they don’t hurt others, and that the government should keep out of people’s day-to-day lives

.”What’s more, an eye-popping 78% of Republicans consider themselves to be “fiscally conservative, but socially moderate,” which is a significant finding given the debate in the GOP on social issues.Looking outside of just the Republican box, the poll found that 66% of respondents consider themselves to fiscally conservative and socially moderate.

These numbers show that the libertarian message is appealing, not only to Republican voters, but also to all Americans; further advancing the case for conservative-libertarian fusionism as a way to promote free market ideals, limited government, and personal liberty….

    Many Rs have long called themselves “conservatives” but are not; and they made up names for other Rs, e.g., RINOS, etc.

    Now, it appears they may start calling themselves …libertarian ???
    Not likely, they hate real libertarians (small l libertarians, that is) too much for that!

    Ron Paul intellectual revolution ain’t political shenanigan for fools to crow about. It’s Philosophy of Economics, no interventionist foreign policy and civil liberties. ‘Nobody spends somebody else’s money as wisely as they spend their own’. Milton Friedman. Foodstamps is liberal’s weapon to harvest for vote Democrats even after life. Obama daren’t use Executive Branch to crush Boehner skull as George Bush [the kid] did veto rigging FISA. He let Boehner boys hit The National Mall looking for sympathy. I can’t wait to see Obama’s first veto to save Obamacare from being wrecked by Kochsukers. He needs guts, balls and more real duplicity. Teeebaagerzz vowed to impeach Obama because they’re Ticked off tittt in wringer jealous that Obamacare covers Blacks’ Liposuction Bills as well. Sen. Barbara Boxer was right when she said: “he’s been 5 days in the senate and he wanted to a president”. Rand Paul can be purchased. Just Call 1-800-KOCHBROTHERS for Bargain Price. He’s spoiler driving the Teeebaagerzz to Death by rigging any bill headhunted by Wealthy special interests groups control. Quit insulting Libertarians; Friedrich Hayek and Ludwig von Mises. Rando ain’t Paulite Libertarian, he’s a traitor. He’s deployed for Koch brothers to exploit Teeebaagerzz as spoilers.
