When it comes to government, there’s really not much difference between conservatives and libertarians, unless your definition of “Conservative” is to make laws which infringe on the rights of others to freely lead a non-violent lifestyle that “conservatives” disagree with simply because it goes against a certain religious code. Interference that comes with needing the government resources to enforce these codes, an archaic tax code that allows for them, and the prison capacity to detain non-violent offenders. In terms of a limited government, there’s nothing conservative about that at all.

I tend to think Republican “conservatives” have a lot more in common with libertarians than they realize.
