The point is it's a good life experience that can mold your political growth.
I can tell you like to assume things. I never once said I support government run health care. I have disagreements with the Libertarian Party on health care but that doesn't mean I support government run health care. I do support certain regulations and that's where I really differ from most libertarians. That doesn't mean I'm not a libertarian. I know liberals that are pro-life. Just because they differ from most liberals on one or two stances doesn't mean they aren't a liberal.
Gary Johnson - 93%
Ron Paul - 87%
Gary Johnson: 84%
Jill Stein: 83%
Go Blue and Go Titans!
Ron Paul 89%
Mitt Romney 85%
Barack Obama 40%
If you believe in the US Constitution and the founding principles of this country, you will land on libertarian. When polled on the issues alone, the majority of the public is libertarian. This 2-party system, which was never intended, forces the majority of us to make some serious compromises with our vote.
97% Ron Paul - Shocker... I kid
94% Gary Johnson
65% Mitt Romney
With this in mind, I will vote for Romney. I was burned by voting for Perot in '92 and vowed I will not do that again. I will support Libertarian candidates at the local level. We have to build from the ground up to really have a chance to get a Libertarian influence. Over time, we can get some in state and federal positions.
Voting for GJ right now is the same as not voting. I really have no idea how someone can score high with Obama and GJ. Both are socially liberal, but they are polar opposites on the economy and social issues that deal with $$$.

I agree that Libertarianism has a spectrum like all political ideologies. Most americans identify more with Libertarianism than any other (right of center fiscally and left of center socially-non $$ issues). Most however aren't as hard-line as Ron Paul or me for that matter.
With that being said, I do not think it is possible to to be any shade of Libertarian and believe in gov't run healthcare. The basic premise goes against the basics of the party (follow constitution and bare minimum federal gov't).
74% Gary Johnson
74% Ron Paul
