Many American social progressives are of the narrow "anal-vaginist" variety but have no similar compunctions in regard to personal liberty in education, property rights, medical care, labor laws, etc... where taxing us out of our homes is an acceptable consequence if the government can establish inefficient monolithic bureaucracies.
An example: Homosexual marriage.
1) Social Progressive: Mandate a majority of states license same-sex marriages, then mandate the same on the federal level for nationwide compliance. Modify the EEOC and other agencies to monitor compliance among the 50 and within the 50 states. Create laws to punish those who do not comply. Tax all Americans (or run deficits) to fund this expansion of government.
2) Libertarian: Abolish the state's power to license any marriage, homosexual or heterosexual. Any church or organization that marries two individuals may issue a certificate of marriage. Etc... In cases of dispute in divorce or matters concerning property rights the couple would have entered a private marriage contract which could be arbitrated by the state as could any private contract.
