Rep. Bob Barr of GA is a strange Libertarian in that he believed in restrictions on marriage and marijuana, unlike many Libertarians who typically want freedom in these areas as progressives do. It's possible his views on these altered by 2008, but I'm not aware if they did or not. 

His actions:

Barr, Bob 1996 co-authored Defense of Marriage Act
Barr, Bob 1997 Introduces a resolution to impeach Clinton
Barr, Bob 1998 Blocks bill to legalize medicinal marijuana in amendment to Omnibus Bill of 1999
Barr, Bob 2004 Becomes a leading conservative critic of the Patriot Act, despite having voted for it
Barr, Bob 2004 Leaves the GOP over Bush policies and supports Libertarian pres nom
Barr, Bob 2008 Libertarian nom for pres
