158 - vouchers got me. Not seeing how supporting vouchers would be libertarian as it would still be the initiation of force. I wrestled with the vigilante justice for awhile, but in the end the word "justice" swayed me in support of it. The question implies force was already initiated against you.

152.

Wow.

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

My experience was the opposite. For a lot them, I was unsure and balked at having to give either a "yes or no" answer and wished there'd been an option for "maybe" or "I'm not sure". Whenever I was unsure about a question, I picked the answer that I though would likely result in my overall score being less libertarian than it otherwise might have. Regardles, I scored a 97 -- which could still be an underestimation.

I scored a 107 and my husband scored a 74. Not bad considering we're newbies.

LOL! This post gave me my 50th post! Yay! 2 Stars!!!

I got 116. I believe I was knocked on the "public" school question. Even if there were government vouchers I would not send my children to be with 30 other children in an artificial environment for twelve years. Not to mention that government vouchers equal government input. I'll educate my children as I see fit, thank you.

In your own personal artificial environment?

I had a problem w/ that and the vouchers and few other things I think.  I answered it on the assumption that the opposite of that is "government should continue to own public land" and all the things that go along w/ it.

139 not too bad I guess. I just have a few nagging doubts concerning "human nature". Bloody silly really as there is little difference between the concept of govt police and private. End result will still be the same and one is far more moral than the other. I will keep thinking :-)

What exactly is the problem with that?  A good portion of government's abuse is based on their "ownership" of public land.

I think he means the "selling" it part.

Yeah?  What's the issue with selling it?

I think he's suggesting that if they don't really own it they can't sell it. It should just be opened for homesteading. Personally I'll take selling it.

They don't own it in the first place.

Of course they don't.  Does someone think they're going to come up with some better idea of what to do with it?  At least they can put the proceeds toward "our debt," and then someone who paid for it will put it to good use.

This isn't my argument, I was just clarifying what apple said.

Got it.
