FILE - In this Friday, Feb. 17, 2012 file photo, Mackenzie DeRoyter of Spokane, Wash., center, and Hanna McCoy of Hawaii cheer for Republican presidential candidate Ron Paul while he speaks at the Student Union Building in Moscow, Idaho. Something's going on in America this election year: a renaissance of an ideal as old as the nation itself - that live-and-let-live, get-out-of-my-business, individualism vs. paternalism dogma that is the hallmark of libertarianism. But what looms are far larger questions about whether an America fed up with government bans and government bailouts - with government, period - is seeing a return to its libertarian roots.
