After all these years, after all the attempts by both libertarians and detractors trying to explain libertarians, after battling stereotypes and pigeonholes and bogus straw man portrayals libertarians are finally identified as "distinct."
Thoughtful libertarians have always known they're not "the right wing of the Republican Party," not "socially liberal and fiscally conservative," and we don't belong anywhere on the superficial "left-right political spectrum."

A PolicyMic article recognizes that both progressives and libertarians have a "noble impulse" to improve society.
But the article also acknowledges that progressives think they can accomplish their desires by "expanding government's roles and responsibilities" while Libertarians understand that these goals can be achieved only by "limiting government's roles and responsibilities."

The United States today operates under a muddle of old-style European socialism, fascism and colonialism with Americanized definitions designed to hide that reality.
America's social policy, with its unending bureaucratic programs to "help" the poor, the needy, the children, the disabled, the disenfranchised that benefits the authoritarian ruling class at the expense of productive citizens is the direct result of the Democrat Party adopting and implementing the old Socialist Party of America platform along with its class warfare under the now unpopular name "liberalism."

In the 1995 movie "Judge Dredd," about a dystopian future, Sylvester Stallone played a heavy-fisted law enforcer with the power to act as on-the-spot cop, prosecutor, judge, jury and executioner at crime scenes.
Judge Dredd seems to be alive and well today in Orlando, Florida, and rights activist Mark Schmidter knows all about him.
In January Chief Judge Belvin Perry, Jr. issued what amounted to a personal dictate making it a prosecutable offense for jury rights activists to distribute their Fully Informed Jury Association literature on the public sidewalks outside of "his" Orange County Courthouse.

After 11 years of dithering, our kinder gentler neighbors to the north decided to set up a Chinese national for torture and execution.
A Canadian court cleared the way earlier this month to extradite him back to China. After all, the Communist Thugocracy promised they wouldn't torture or kill him, even though his brother and his accountant both died in prison, so where's the worry?

Libertarian News Examiner reader Jason Gonella reported, "There is a story circulating about a restaurant that refuses to serve anyone employed by the TSA. That's a good start."
Discrimination on the basis of race, religion, gender, and all the rest is disgusting but totally free choice.
And it's a matter of free choice for people – not "government" but people – to fight against it.

Quaint old ideas like freedom of assembly, freedom of association, freedom of speech and the right to peacefully petition government for redress of grievances used to be respected, but now apparently they're legal only in Wisconsin and only if you're a union member.
Among the many lessons that Bradley Manning has taught us (courage, honesty, integrity, commitment to truth and decency among other concepts cherished by libertarians) there is one other that every libertarian should take to heart.

Sometimes when you see the word "libertarian" in print you instinctively know it doesn't mean the same thing to you that it may mean to others.
To members of the modern American freedom movement, intellectually fed by the likes of Rand, Rothbard, Mises and multiple like-minded minds, libertarian means individualism, property rights, free markets, and the right of sovereign human beings to do as they choose short of initiating force, intimidation, or fraud against others.
