Today's gem is the World's Smallest Political Quiz. I scored as a Centrist, though shading strongly Libertarian and to the right. The test appears to have a pretty strong Libertarian bias, though; statements like this:
Right-conservatives prefer self-government on economic issues, but want official standards in personal matters. They want the government to defend the community from threats to its moral fiber....are overly simplistic in my view, and oh by the way, there's a form to fill out on the results page if you want more "Information on Libertarian Ideas." :-D
But then again, the "Libertarian" description:
Libertarians are self-governors in both personal and economic matters. They believe government's only purpose is to protect people from coercion and violence. They value individual responsibility, and tolerate economic and social diversity....isn't too far off my mark for the ideal in society, though it whitewashes a fair bit of the Libertarian trend toward "throw off the shackles" attitude that leads toward the legalization of drugs and prostitution. But hey, it makes for good discussion material. :-)
In other piracy from Lynn, she posted a link to a story from GUT RUMBLES, and I like this guy. He says all sorts of things I'm too polite to say or too self-absorbed to see. Go ACIDMAN!
