Was Glen Beck EVER a real Libertarian?

Could be wrong, but i thought that at one poin, Glen Beck claimed to be a Libertarian.

My question is, that...As a Libertarian, does he truly support the Decriminalization of victomless crimes... Such as,a person smoking marijuana, one gay person having sex with another in the privacy of their own home with no cameras involved.

Is he a real Libertarian? Or is he just an old hat Republican these days?

Thanks!

    I very much doubt Glenn Beck is a real anything.

    He is an overpaid shill/cheerleader/mouthpiece for the most deranged, criminal elements of the business community...AEI, USCOC, the Koch brothers, the Heritage and Enterprise Foundations, the "Club for Growth", and pretty much every other half-baked, lying right wing propaganda and hate spewing organization whose agenda is anti-democratic and, for the very, very rich, anti-tax. And I don't mean they want LOWER taxes, they actually mean for the ultra-wealthy to pay NOTHING in taxes and invest NOTHING in society.

    I can find no evidence Beck has any principles at all. I know he is an enormous liar, spreading Constitutional fraud like butter and historical lies like the Nazis being "liberal" which are so ludicrous as to be beneath contempt.

    I do not think he has enough education to know what party he is in. He claims to have graduated High School but even that seems like a stretch. I would expect many changes in his future as he learns and grows.

    i assume the main important Lie is the only that Beck tells himself . I easily have in many situations concept this guy could be from yet another Universe the place each and every ingredient he says is authentic the place he comes from yet IS a finished Lie in this actuality.

    although earlier this year he expressed opposition to it.

    I wonder what made him come around in just a few months.

    In fact, a lot of people have been coming around on this issue after Judge Walker's ruling on prop 8.

    CNN released the 1st national poll showing the majority of Americans supporting gay marriage.

    Seems like a lot of people have been educated by the federal lawsuit against prop 8.

    He's a false libertarian. Just because someone says they're something, doesn't mean they are. He's much more socially conservative.
