Libertarians are neither. Unlike liberals or conservatives, Libertarians advocate a high degree of both
personal and economic liberty. For example, Libertarians agree with
conservatives about freedom in economic matters, so we're in favor of
lowering taxes, slashing bureaucratic regulation of business, and
charitable — rather than government — welfare. But Libertarians also
agree with liberals on personal tolerance, so we're in favor of
people’s right to choose their own personal habits and lifestyles.
a sense, Libertarians “borrow” from both sides to come up with a
logical and consistent whole — but without the exceptions and broken
promises of Republican and Democratic politicians. That's why we call
ourselves the Party of Principle.
