151. there are blue dog libertarians
some self proclaimed "libertarians" are actually anarcho syndicalists, they are unionized workers who distrust governments and big business. the tend to vote instead of staying home but dont always vote libertarian, especially if their union makes a STRONG endorsement of other candidates. i know people that fit this discription.

they are blue dogs in that they dont want any FEDERAL programs as they distrust washington dc. state run programs are fine for many of them so vermonts state run health insurance does not bother these kind of people.

every libertarian is long from being a pure laissez faire supporter. many just want pot legal, want their state to have more power because they think that north dakota is more accountable to them and understands better their needs than washington dc.
