When is a Libertarian not a Libertarian?

How to tell if your Libertarian friend isn’t actually a Republican:

A true Libertarian would object to the forced quarantine — essentially, incarceration — of asymptomatic medical workers returning from western Africa.

Even a non-Libertarian Tea Partier couldn’t possibly be thrilled with the whole “loss of personal freedom” bit.

But then, it’s no different than when I hear my friends on the Right screaming about how they hate entitlement programs while insisting that no cuts be made to their own Social Security or Medicare benefits.
