There are different parts of the Right. For instance, both Clinton and Trump are on the Right (as is most mainstream US politics). Yet, they aren't the same. You supported Clinton -- evidence for you being on the Right.

Gary Johnson is not (and was not) a libertarian. (Ron Paul also is not a libertarian. He's a conservative with many libertarian positions. Gary Johnson appears to be and have a moderate -- in US terms -- statist with some libertarian stances.) Not was his running mate. The LP is not the gauge of what's libertarian.
Perhaps you could simply tell us what you mean by 'libertarian' and 'classical libertarian.'
