You desire substantially less government control of economic activity and somewhat less government control over personal activity than is presently the case in the U.S. This makes you a moderate libertarian with conservative tendencies.
Image less government and more capitalism. It can be pleasant, and sometimes useful, to dream. And so I have compiled lists of libertarian and conservative utopias for your reading pleasure.
And I also have a nice list of dystopias for you to experience the thrill and horror of not so libertarian societies from the safety of your reading chair.
Former New Mexico governor Gary Johnson wants to broaden the political debate in America to include an oft-neglected value: Liberty.
The Libertarian Party was created to radically cut government—more than you want. Nonetheless, you might want to check them out to see if you want to add some Libertarians to the mix of D's and R's currently in power, since the D's and R's are making government bigger than you want.
Not happy with the existing parties? Would you like to see a political party that was concerned about freedom and equality? Would you like to shrink big government and big corporations?
I am contemplating starting such a party. This is not a trivial undertaking! However in my manual on how to start a new political party I seriously address the challenges inherent in third party politics in the United States. Third parties generally fail, because the system is rigged against third parties. However, there are a couple of interesting loopholes...
Want more liberty soon? You could move to a small state where other libertarians are congregating: New Hampshire. The Free State Project has not achieved its original goal of getting 20,000 libertarians to commit to moving, but many libertarians have moved anyway.

This is a short list. I have more recommendations on economics, law and political philosophy, and mass domination for those who are interested. (The linked pages include reviews of my recommended readings.)
Think economics is just about predicting interest rates? Think again! Marginal Revolution is a very interesting economics blog written by professors at George Mason University.
Freedom, equality, morality, nature,...these are all good things. All to often, political debate rages over which is more important. Synergies get overlooked. There is a better way, holistic politics. By looking at multiple values at the same time, it is possible to come up with creative solutions for the world's problems, solutions that make all the factions more happy.
A guide to cutting the federal government's budget.
How do we get back to sound money and a stable economy? How do we replace ridiculous financial regulations with accountability? Read Finance and Freedom to find out. You will also find some fun potshots at Keynesian Economics and the Paradox of Thrift. To the Krugmobile!
The Leadership Institute. Provides quality training in "political technology" for conservatives and libertarians.
Essays on World Liberation. Once upon a time, I was a hardcore activist in the Libertarian Party, going so far to sit on the National Committee and be on the Strategic Planning Team (SPT). These essays are an outgrowth of said experiences and my experiments in the field. Since then, I have concluded that the Libertarian Party is not the optimical vehicle for liberty; it is too radical to win many elections. Furthermore, I have mellowed over time and have become more sensitive to issues other than liberty and the size of government. So I am no longer an LP member, but if you are (or become one) some of these essays may prove useful.
