Great article here on what libertarians are for. An excerpt:
"Libertarians are for voluntary action, always. It is because we are for society—a vibrant, active society—that we resist the expansion of state power.
It is because we are for giving people a chance to reach their full potential that we doubt the motives and effectiveness of government. Political coercion corrupts the human spirit; political leaders tell us they take our wealth for our own good, and political processes straitjacket independent thought—the essence of liberty.
We are for individuals, working together in complex, interconnected organizations they have designed in their efforts to solve problems.
We are for liberty, for celebrating the infinite and infinitely varied capacities of the human mind. Libertarians are for a limitless sense of the possible, for the idea that for a society of truly free and responsible citizens, nothing is impossible. "
