Just putting it out there

but Rand doesn't identify as a libertarian, does he? I think I heard him call himself a 'libertarian Republican' once, but I might be getting him confused with the other million people who say that.

Point is, 'libertarian', like liberal and conservative or any other political label, can be stretched to fit popular opinion. Political labels are for convenience, nothing more...and anyone who disagrees is clearly a this/that/whatveerist and not a *true* mypersonalidealsist!

Either way, most of the self-described libertarian acquaintances I know stay far, FAR away from politics beyond reading about it, and I think that hurts them more *politically* than Rand ever could. (not that I'm saying to go out and join a political party, again just throwing a 'Devil's Advocate' POV out there)
