I haven't finished the test yet.  I got to the question about government spending on higher education and went off on a rant in my head about how I couldn't get any grants because my dad had a 401k.  Uh, hello, that's not to pay for me, that's for him to retire!  And since the societal impact of me going to college is going to be far more beneficial than the societal impact of draining his 401k, it's a fucked up system.  That's all.

Just out of curiosity, how much does it cost to go to that school that you want to attend?  Lets assume that it costs $2000 per semester..  how hard would it be to put away $20 every day that you worked for school?  After 100 work days, you would have your money for a semester...  do that for 2 to 3 years, and you have your money for school...  No loans, no grants, nada...  It may be a little difficult, but it is not the end of the world... That's what i am trying to do...  I got 18 classes to go to finish (I have not been in school for almost 15 years, but have spent the past 6 months re-learning my stuff so that I can start next fall.)

Believe me...  It took me almost 7 years to pay off the loans I took from the first time around...  you don't want to start out after college with that kind of debt....

Wow.

When you put the questions in black & white, the choice is so much... simpler.

148 here..

The problem I have with most of these tests... (umm, and by most I mean this one and the smallest political quiz)... is that they do nothing to counter-act the yeah-saying bias. After the first few questions, it becomes obvious that to get a perfect score you have to answer yes to all of the questions to get a perfect score. Since most of us consider ourselves to be libertarians of one sort or another, we tend tend to go down the line and say "yup...yup...yup...mmmhmm" without really analyzing the question.

This would be slightly more useful if some of the questions were negated and thus required a "no" answer. (Although I guess this is much more about fun than any sort of usefullness..)

51 - medium core libertarian.

Yeah, so sue me.

I see some limited government as a necessary evil, but want them to just butt out my, yours, and everybody else's busines while reducing taxes as much as possible, and cutting spending to only the bare necessities.   A goverment that doesnt' feel the need to spy on it's citizens or maintain a global military empire far beyond what is strategically necessary to maintain peace. 

Legalized drugs, prostitution, gambling, and guns?  Have at it!  Just don't put anybody else in danger.

Private roads, private courts, private military, private police & fire fighters?  Now that's just moonbat crazy.

I don't fully agree with the absolute, dogmatic, anarchic Libertarians.  But I still appreciate them as a balance of ideas, because there's a lot of Socialists, Communists, and Facists tugging on the rope at the other side.

Why?  What can government, a group of people, voted for by people, do for people what other people cannot do for people?
