Libertarianism is the political belief system. That an individual is free to do anything they want, so long as they are do not infringe on the rights of others to do what they want. Government's role is to protect those rights. You can learn more at http://www.lp.org, home page for the LibertarianParty of the UnitedStates. ''Also note that libertarianism is not strictly a right wing ideology; formal anarchism is apparently referred to as Libertarian Socialism.''
