It's actually media laziness (or part of the grand liberal media conspiracy, if you lean that way) that lumped the libertarians in with the repubs. They're really off in their own corner of the political spectrum. Because the "current noise" from the tea party folks opposes the democrats, the media automatically pigeonholes them with the repubs regardless of where they really "belong". If you put it on a line fiscally speaking, you'd have the Reaganites, move right to the Tea Party folks, and then move right again to true libertarians.

The term "conservative" itself clearly suits the bible thumpers, even if umbrella isn't a perfect fit for them, either. It seems to me that many groups on both sides of the aisle end up assigned to a side more by deciding where they don't fit than by where they truly do.

Sorry. No pearls of wisdom in this oyster.
