@hotdiggity: You obviously don't know the difference between Libertarian party and Constitution Party. The Constitution Party is against same sex marriage and other actual freedoms. Why shouldn't people be allowed to marry who they want? How does that hurt you? We are founded on the principles of freedom from all, and Freedom of religion, and that means from it as well. As far as "Traditional" conservative values...well, you obviously don't know much there either. Barry Goldwater was very much against the Religious Right taking over the Republican Party. It's from the Religious Right that you get these so called conservative principles.

Libertarians want as much personal freedom from Government as outlined by the Constitution. The legalization of Marijuana, which has nowhere near the negative effects that other legalized drugs do, alcohol for instance, should happen. We spend fortunes on combating something that is no more harmful than anything else we do allow. We believe that people are responsible for their own actions and as long as they aren't infringing on someone else's rights to Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness, what business is it of yours to dictate what they should and shouldn't do.
There's nothing in the Constitution about Marriage and who can and should be allowed to get married. There is an Amendment about equal protection under the Law though.

So, the question is, do you respect the freedom and rights of others to live how they want, or should people be dictated to based off of your personal religious beliefs? If you believe the latter, then you don't believe in the principles this country was founded on. Many of our Founders were Deists and did not believe in the divinity of Jesus. Educate yourself on history and the beliefs of our founders.
We should be Free to do as we wish with whomever we wish, so long as it doesn't infringe on the Liberty of others. That's what Libertarian is. Freedom, plain and simple.
