Are you?

Libertarian Celebrities
Libertarians can pop up in the most unexpected places: In Hollywood. On television. In your local newspaper. On your CD or MP3 player. In fact, here is a list of 12 notable Americans -- and every one of them is a self-declared libertarian. (Click on any photo or name for a complete profile.)

Clint EastwoodMovie legend Clint Eastwood is known for his tough, laconic characters. He projects the same image when he talks about politics, saying simply that he's a "libertarian... Everyone leaves everyone else alone."

Drew CareyTV funnyman Drew Carey isn't laughing when he talks about the government. "You should never depend on the government for your retirement, your financial security, for anything," he says. "If you do, you're screwed."

MelanieMelanie sings a different song than many of her Woodstock-era contemporaries when it comes to politics. "I'm a total Libertarian," she says. "I am not a Democrat, a Socialist, or a Republican. Vote Libertarian!"

Walter WilliamsAs a syndicated columnist, Walter Williams is known for speaking his mind. "Government is about coercion," he says. "Limiting government is the single most important instrument for guaranteeing liberty."

Dave Barry If big government is ever toppled by laughter, this Pulitzer Prize-winning columnist may be the cause. Dave Barry has no love for politicians. "For them, the question is always, What kind of government intervention should we impose?" he says. "They never think that maybe we shouldn't."

John StosselWhen it comes to big government, this ABC television broadcaster says, "Give me a break!" And why not? John Stossel says about himself: "I am a libertarian in that I believe in limited government and as much individual freedom as possible."

Russell MeansHis journey from Indian-rights activist to star of movies like Last of the Mohicans has given him a unique perspective on politics. "Freedom is for everyone, whatever lifestyle they choose, as long as it's peaceful and honest," Russell Means says.

Milton FriedmanHe won a Nobel Prize for economics in 1976 for his pioneering work in free-market theory. So people tend to pay attention when Milton Friedman says, "I am a limited-government libertarian."

Dwight YoakamThis guitar-slinging, honky-tonk outlaw and star of movies (including Sling Blade) usually doesn't talk about politics. But when he does, Dwight Yoakam says, "I believe in liberty. I'm a libertarian."

Congressman Ron PaulHe's run for office as a Republican and a Libertarian, but his agenda remains the same. "The purpose of all political action should be to promote liberty," says Texas Congressman Ron Paul.

Esther Dyson She's been called one of the computer industry's greatest visionaries -- and her greatest vision is of liberty. Esther Dyson says, "I would much rather see responsibilities exercised by individuals than have them imposed by the government."

Kurt RussellWhat does the star of dozens of movies -- from Escape from New York to Miracle -- believe in? "Being a libertarian, I do believe that limited government is good," says Kurt Russell. "I believe in that. Freedom, freedom, freedom."

Actually as an aging adult I like the LP.. I know that it is seen as a little extreme in some areas, but lets face it, if you are going to have a political leaning, this ain’t a bad way to tilt. They seem to truly stand for independence and freedom, and I think we all need a little more of both, thrown in with a good dose of accountability!

Do me a favor, read the stuff on Even if find that you do not agree at ALL with the LP at least you will be better informed in the next election cycle. The two party system that we currently have, is not working for me? Does it work for you? If not, why? Why not give the LP a look over?
Peace, Pass it on.

(for the record, I do not use any illicit drugs, no pot, no coke no nothin’ but I see where non-victim crimes need not be criminal, and where our current drug policy is causing more harm than good. Remember Prohibition? Remember armed gangs, machine gun drive-bys and g-men?? Look around you, look at the news.. it just has a different face, where once you saw Al Capone, you now see Snoop Dogg)
Well at least you can still do nothing about it.. it is a free country right? (If you do nothing , you my friend are an idiot.)
