Right libertarian

From Libertarian Wiki

Right libertarians believe in an absolute right to private property. They are heavily influenced by Austrian economics, and oppose any government intervention in the marketplace. They hold an unflinching faith in the free market, and see any market failures as the result of government intervention. They consider any voluntary, contractual agreement to be legitimate. They are highly hostile towards any form of taxation, particularly the income tax. At best, they tend to view taxation as a necessary evil, and usually advocate tariffs and excise taxes as the main source of revenue, though they are critical of these as well. Some denounce all forms of taxation, and instead believe that user fees and voluntary donations are the only legitimate means of funding government. The most extreme form of right libertarianism is anarcho-capitalism, which believes that the state should not exist at all, and that its roles could be replaced by the free market.
