I scored a 90.

I'm afraid to legalize all drugs and there should be stipulations.

States should be given the right and even then it should be controlled (medical marijuana clinics, hash bars, homes, etc). I don't think someone should be allowed to smoke weed out in the open and just like alcohol there should be an age limit (either 18 or 21)

Personal Issues 80%

Economic Issues 90%

I guess I am now a Libertarian. 

Upside is after reading the Libertarian description on this site I agree with my political grouping. 

Downside is my candidate is never going to win an election. 

Damned if you do, damned if you don't.

"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."

I wonder if the "advocates for self Government" would want to skew the results in their favor at all?  

100/80 Libertarian.  It had me slightly left of center.  Weird.

Kind of like scientology.  

Libertarians are all too eager for you to join their organization.  I really have a lot in common with them, but they seem so cultish.  They would definitely be the better of the 3 parties, but I am wary of any affiliation at this point.

scientology is a popular religion with a crazy foundation of beliefs...  cutt like and better off that no one knows what they actually believe... more similar to Mormons then libertarians

It' sad to see that my own citizens don't even know the history of what was supposed to be the greatest nation on earth.

For you Democrats this is for you…“If you want total security, go to prison. There you're fed, clothed, given medical care and so on. The only thing lacking... is freedom.”
~ Dwight D. Eisenhower

For you Republicans this is for you…“ The Republican Party was once the party of freedom, liberty, and progress.” A theocratic authoritarian government is not freedom, liberty, or a democracy.

The star spangled banner says “O'er the land of the free.”

The pledge of allegiance says “…with Liberty and justice for all.”

The Untied States constitution was for freedom and individual rights. Man has inalienable rights given by God, and therefore they may not be given or taken by human agency, such as government.

Freedom is the state of not being imprisoned or enslaved or of being unconstrained.

To all my fellow libertarians for whom are advocates of liberty, freedom, maximizing individual rights and minimizing the role of the state, and want civil liberties, personal liberty, personal privacy, body rights, equal rights, equal justice, social equality, economic liberty, property rights, free market education and free market health care.

Liberty is a concept of political philosophy and identifies the condition in which an individual has the right to act according to his or her own will.

Liberty:
1. Freedom from arbitrary or despotic government or control.
2. Freedom from external or foreign rule; independence.
3. Freedom from control, interference, obligation, restriction, hampering conditions, etc.; power or right of doing, thinking, speaking, etc., according to choice.

“The great revolution in the history of man, past, present and future, is the revolution of those determined to be free.”
~ John F. Kennedy:

“They, who can give up essential liberty to obtain a little temporary safety, deserve neither liberty nor safety.”
~ Benjamin Franklin

“I would rather be exposed to the inconveniences attending too much liberty than to those attending too small a degree of it.”
~ Thomas Jefferson

“Those who deny freedom to others deserve it not for themselves.”
~ Abraham Lincoln

“Conformity is the jailer of freedom and the enemy of growth.”
~ John F. Kennedy

“I am just absolutely convinced that the best formula for giving us peace and preserving the AMERICAN way of Life is Freedom, limited government, and minding our own business overseas.”
~ Ron Paul

“We hold these Truths to be self-evident, that all Men are created equal, That they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.”
~ Declaration of Independence

My PERSONAL issues Score is 100%

My ECONOMIC issues Score is 100%

The same score as the founding fathers of this country....

money let me share with you a story from my childhood...

as a kid I walked home from school every day... seemed like it was pretty far, maybe 12 blocks or so... but this other kid in my class his mom's business was close to where I lived so we would walk together after school long with a few other kids...

well he had an older sister who partied alot and he was pretty exposed to some of the cool older things in life, specifically MJ... he never did it but hanging around his sister in highschool he saw it alot...

Well anyways mom owned her own business and his dad was a lawyer and although happily married they liked being able to make independent decisions with their businesses and focus on what they did well...

So we have this reading assignment in school about the 1984 presidential election... which talked about what the candidates stood for and then the class would cast its vote anonymously (we were encouraged to stay silent about we voted for)...  We constructed voting booths and made ballots and would cast our vote and the teacher would count them up and read the results... so the homework was to read about the candidates and make an informed decision...

so there was all this info about mondale and reagan that we were supposed to read over...  so on long our walk home my friend and I say that ferraro wins for sure because all of the girls will vote for her and there were more girls then boys in the class...

But then he starts talking about how the assignment is BS because it only has republican and democrat...   I was like... you mean there is something else?  and my friend then starts talking about how his dad is like one big supporters in the state of the libertarian party...

So I ask him what they are about...  and he says basically it is about following what george washington, thomas jefferson and ben franklin created...  So he said that they believe in the freedoms and rights for citizens including the legalization of drugs and the decrease in funding of things like police and jails... which means that when they spend less they can tax less...

So with this basic kids version of libertarianism I am totally on board with what he is saying and we agree to write in the libertarian candidate david berland (I think I misspelled it on the ballot)... So I actually have had a favorable view of libertarianism since I started thinking about politics...

So we have the election and Reagan wins... which taught me two things...

1.  Girls who could have an advantage by just blindly voting for the girl will not vote for a girl as vice president...

2. When I vote libertarian I end up being disappointed with who ever wins...

I went to a great elementary school... could be said that it was all progressively down hill from there including post grad which was a joke...

One final thing I learned from the process was being comfortable with write in votes and voting for parties other then r or d.... as a result I have voted libertarian and green party before in certain elections... and to end up being a libertarian on the test doesnt surprise me

I grew up in a two party household. My mother was a D and my father R. My mom was liberal and my father a strict conservative. I grew up being indoctrinated by both parents. I was around my mom more, so I became a democrat.

I was a D all the way through high school. I still side with D’s although I don’t consider myself a D. I chose to pick the lesser of the two evils. It wasn’t till Ralph Nader became mainstream in the counterculture when I started to pay attention to green party politics and libertarianism.

I would always cheer for the D’s to defeat the R’s because of social issues and I like that the D’s were promoting freedom, liberty, and progress. Eight years ago you could separate the D’s and R’s but now it’s hard to see a difference.

I’ve seen enough of the D’s and R’s in power. I want to see what a libertarian president could do with 4 years. I listen to Gary Johnson and I can’t find a single thing that I disagree with him on. Ron Paul on the other hand I do have things I disagree with but if Gary Johnson doesn’t win I could settle for Ron Paul.

I suggest to those who are reading this…do you know the REAL democratic and republican party?

The deeper I looked the more I realized that both sides are nothing but forms of communism and theocratic totalitarianism.

Both sides don’t represent what the founding fathers had in mind.  

We are now living in a theo-fascist dictatorship controlled by republocrats and corporate media.

Right now, I just want any kind of libertarian in office.

Where did you see them promoting freedom and liberty.  Just curious, not busting balls.
