Yep, I'm in the same boat.

Neither party consistently supports freedom. The Republicans believe in economic freedom but think the government has the right to encorce morality based upon a book of fairy tales. The Dems are better with social freedoms (in theory at least--affirmative action, thought..err.."hate" crime laws, and other special rights for certain groups run counter to this) but think the government has the right to steal half our income and give it to the undeserving.

The Libertarians are cool in theory, but they rarely win elections and in real life most of their members just want to legalize pot. Which I support because I don't believe prohibiting it is any of the government's business, but it doesn't compose the central core of my political beliefs.

I'm registered and typically vote Republican, but I'm really not happy with either party. Especially now that the GOP gives amnesty to illegals and is obviously no longer supporting small government in terms of either legal powers (Patriot Act) or spending.
