Comment: Did he mean (l)ibertarian or (L)ibertarian?

Did he mean (l)ibertarian or (L)ibertarian?

And if he meant (l)ibertarian, what exactly does he mean by that? Anarcho-capitalist? Minarchist? Constitutional conservative? The term is not clearly defined, it refers to a broad spectrum of people who favor individual liberty over government power: but to varying degrees.

I think Rand meant to dissociate himself from the (L)ibertarians, which makes sense considering he was running as a Republican. I wouldn't read anything more into it, and his record is plenty libertarian for me.
