The World's Smallest Political Quiz

Hello All,

I just received my November issue of Backwoods Home, and this quiz was in there.  Very interesting indeed.  Any takers?

Your PERSONAL issues Score is 80%.
Your ECONOMIC issues Score is 90%.

According to your answers, the political group that agrees with you most is...



LIBERTARIANS support maximum liberty in both personal and

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.

To bee or not to bee that is the question I wake up to answer that every morning...

Ya,  I took it a while back and surprise, surprise......... Libertarian, but I already knew that.   But I'm sure there are a lot of folks that fall into the Libertarian category and don't realize it.

Personal 70%, Economic 100%. 

Rates as a Libertarian but I'm not into political labels.  I would consider myself an independent because I don't believe in any specific political doctron.  I vote my beliefs as much as the quality of the candidates will allow, unfortunately, their aren't very represenative of my beliefs.

CENTRISTS espouse a "middle ground" regarding government control of the economy and personal behavior. Depending on the issue, they sometimes favor government intervention and sometimes support individual freedom of choice.

Centrists pride themselves on keeping an open mind,

tend to oppose "political extremes," and emphasize what

they describe as "practical" solutions to problems.

Is that the best you can do? You never know darling, you might end up being the front runner! Could end up like that well known sub culture documentary of the 70s called Deliverance.

Ya know I was reading about womb transplants today. I wonder if gay couples might end up with a womb transplant? Would all have to be sun roof deliverys, I dont think mans pelvis would handle it, nor his err you know what, be a long delivery thats for sure.

Im not sure on the whole plumbing thing, but I reckon having a womb gotta get you at least halfway there.
