Compassionate Libertarianism

I'm thinking of starting a new political movement that is libertarian at its core but still makes room for a decent safety net. This movement will respect the liberty of the populace and ask only for minimal sacrifices to be made for the common good. Very simple tax code. Strong defense. Emphasis on pushing government down as far as possible to the local level. The politically correct will be shunned. Details to be worked out later -- after I wake up from this dream.

Anybody interested in joining?

I'll sign up as long as you volunteer to be the universally reviled individual who must convert the phrases "decent safety net", "minimal sacrifices", "simple tax code" and "strong defense" into concrete numbers.
