 Justin Amash relishes libertarian rebel label, writer says in New York Times opinion piece

Excerpted from
Oft-outspoken Rep. Justin Amash is portrayed as relishing the libertarian rebel label that has amassed him a significant following in a New York Times opinion piece that ran over the weekend.
Amash takes a starring role in the piece, titled "After Ron Paul, Then What?"... by Reason Magazine Brian Doherty.
The column by and large examines how retired Rep. Ron Paul, of Texas, oversaw a firing up of the Republican Party's libertarian voters, and how his son, Sen. Rand Paul of Kentucky, and Amash are among those carrying the torch forward.

Am I the only one who thinks the "conservative" label is toxic?

Libertarian & Libertarian Republican have a pretty clear meaning.

In most parts of the world the term "Liberal" is used for people who support freedom and economic liberty.
It would be smart to try to reclaim that label.
