I'm trapped in my own head with a lump in my throat blocking any means of escape.
Can't seem to get into gear and get any work done this afternoon.
Here, try this "worlds smallest political quiz". It will take your mind off of whatever it is you should be doing right now, for about 60 seconds (which is about my maximum threshold for any and all things political). According to all kinds of very official sounding places, the quiz generates wildly accurate results.
My results, below, will then likely come as little surprise.
ACCORDING TO YOUR ANSWERS,
The political description that fits you best is...
economic matters. They advocate a much smaller government; one
that is limited to protecting individuals from coercion and violence.
Libertarians tend to embrace individual responsibility, oppose
government bureaucracy and taxes, promote private charity, tolerate
diverse lifestyles, support the free market, and defend civil liberties.
"Basically, Libertarians are all about individualism and letting people get on with their lives with as little interference as possible. I can dig it. My problem with Republicans is their rather selfish, intolerant, cavalier philosophy; the main drawback for Democrats is their general failure to grasp reality, an overzealous idealism, you could call it. The attraction of Libertarianism is it seems to be a more practical, intelligent alternative to these two extremes." -- D. Allan Kerr, Seacoast Online (New Hampshire), September 16, 2004
I can dig everything but his saying "I can dig it".
