And support a woman's right to choose. And very loose borders/free immigration.

In many ways Libertarians are not on the same page as Republicans.

I thought of Colorado Springs too but doesn't the area have a lot of religious conservatism too making it a more traditional Republican area, plus the support for the military?

Denver is a liberal, Democratic city and becoming more so due to transplants from the West Coast.

i know you hate Austin, but look up some facts. Travis county was the only county where the majority of white voters voted for Hilary. Libertarian is very live and let live. They don't care about gays getting married and want low taxes, so yes, some Austin citizens like that. It's not a welfare state.

Absolutely so, and a point often missed by the liberal community.

And conservatives. Those guys in Charlottesville vote Republican, not libertarian.

Most Libertarians don't have strong feelings one way or the other on abortion. Most are completely fine with immigration but not open borders.

It means small government, so those things you listed would be allowed in a place that's libertarian

A lot of people who call themselves libertarian are really just regular conservatives. But yes, actual libertarians disagree with Republicans on many things.

Yep. That is the meaning of choice in pro-choice.

If they are real Libertarians, then they are free market purists. If they are free market purists, they are for open borders.

There are a lot of self-proclaimed libertarians whose "libertarianism" comes with a lot of caveats.
