Tico Libertarianism

Similarities are being raised as to what's taking place in Costa Rica and what's taking place here in the US with the Tea Party movement. Tico Libertarianism and the U.S. Tea Party caught my attention, it's an article that might interest you as well. Part of:

The movement is based on the precepts of libertarianism and fueled by a romantic “pick-yourself-up-by-your-own-bootstraps,” American Dream mentality, a la Horatio Alger. Tea Party advocates revere the authority of the U.S. Constitution and tend to take a diehard conservative stance on issues like gun control and illegal immigration.

The downside is you have to pay to read the rest of the article, but it's worth it for those of you interested in the topic.
