Unfortunately, I think you have phrased this 'incorrectly'. Liberalism, is VERY different from Libertarianism. For instance; Ron Paul is a 'Libertarian', he quorums with the Republicans. If you follow Libertarian thought, you believe in "Conservative" economy, "Closed Border" philosophy, and extreme Trade Policies. Whereas, Liberalism is "Inclusive" in economy, and Public Policies
There is a newer book on the Market called' " The Conservative Brain", and (of course) I can't remember the Author, but it should still be on the New York Times, 'Bestsellers' List. It basically mirrors a study done by Berkley ( of course) Institute, in the 1970's, that suggests, People who call themselves "Conservatives", live in what could be called Societal Sczitophrenic fantasies. This can explain Voting against their own 'Self-interests'.
The Conservative Brain says that conservatives have a "Cave-Man" brain, where they see "Others" as a danger, and need the reassurance of other people, that they are doing the "Right" thing. When you see real the History of their Economic Policies, you can tell that they are NOT "Conservative", at all, but that they willing to spend freely, when in Power.
Thus, "Conservatism", is a "Sham", a Fallacy. And their Social Policies are EQUALLY "Bullshit"; JUST SAY NO!...1000 POINTS OF LIGHT...TRICKLE-DOWN ECONOMICS...SCHOOL VOUCHERS (cut public school funding)...WAR IN IRAQ...the list is as long as Conservative "Policy", SIMPLY don't work, in Real Life!
No, there's NO alternate 'choice', if you feel you are an "Aware" Person, there's NO question, Liberalism is inclusive on ALL 'levels'.
Libertarianism seems to be a little like looking at Life through a Telescope; you can "Magnify" whatever you point it at, but you lose the "Larger" view.
