This wouldn't help.
American Libertarianism has precious little to do with classic libertarianism, as I have repeatedly said in this forum. American Libertarianism is just 'hyper-conservatism', or just 'neoconservatism'.
"Neoconservatives peaked in influence during the administration of George W. Bush, when they played a major role in promoting and planning the 2003 invasion of Iraq. Prominent neoconservatives in the George W. Bush administration included Paul Wolfowitz, Elliott Abrams, Richard Perle, and Paul Bremer. Senior officials Vice President Dick Cheney and Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld, while not identifying as neoconservatives, listened closely to neoconservative advisers regarding foreign policy, especially the defense of Israel and the promotion of American influence in the Middle East.
"The term 'neoconservative' refers to those who made the ideological journey from the anti-Stalinist left to the camp of American conservatism. Neoconservatives typically advocate the promotion of democracy and American national interest in international affairs, including by means of military force and are known for espousing disdain for communism and for political radicalism."
As you can see, this does not have anything to do with classic Libertarianism, but is remarkably close to American Libertarianism. As I have said repeatedly, the two are different critters altogether.
