Could libertarians become the next significant group of swing voters? It would make my life a lot more interesting, that's for sure. "Fiscally conservative but socially liberal" describes a significant number of my friends. "Fiscally conservative and stay off my lawn" describes most of the rest, including yours truly.

Me as well of course I am on board with beat the crap out of them foreign policy as well.
Unfortunately, spend less and leave me the hell alone doesn't play well for politicians. They must position themselves as Doing Something. And generally Doing Something involves Think of the Children or some other crap.
Hell, I'd actually vote for someone that went to Washington on the ticket of "My plan is to do nothing and to actively prevent the government from doing anything except spending less or kicking the dog crap out of any nation stupid enough to attack us".
