    I tell people I'm so anti big government I make Limbaugh look liberal. I personally think we could do with a Federal government at most one third the size of the current one. Most of what they do could be done better, cheaper and more efficiently at the state and local level.

    Just call me a social liberal and extreme fiscal conservative. I'm with xrayboy I'd like to .gov mucho smaller and streamlined. I'd be pleased to buy a cake and a dozen cookies at the next military or corporate/social welfare bake sale but I don't much like to see a big chunk of my check go to away week in and week out and seeing it go to things I don't much believe in (insert Iraq/WosDs/Congressional Pork rant here).

    If someone asks what I am I say libertarian. If they don't know it I explain it.

    I'm a "little L" libertarian, meaning that I agree in the main with Libertarian principles, just not completely with the current Libertarian party.

    I like the right to buy, keep, use, & bear arms; I don't mind paying my "fair share" of taxes to live in the USA; I resent having to bear the tax burden of others.

    I chose Libertarian, though I am not a member of the party. I don't agree with all of their stances and they are to willing to nominate just about anyone who is willing to run.

    I believe in personal responsibility and doing the right thing, so by today's standards I'm pretty far right.

    The lead GOPers trumpet personal responsibility for the masses ("If your job got outsourced, it's your own fault!") but they rarely apply the same principles to themselves, it seems ("Our poor performance in the Iraq war and sluggish economy are all Clinton's fault!"). I maintain that the state must uphold the maximum possible freedom for individual citizens while curtailing the activities of corporations and other organic entities, which have a long record of trampling individual rights. That makes me a liberal, a libertarian or an anarchist according to different people.

    Small "l" libertatian, here. We make a terrible mistake when we allow our hired hands to call themselves "lawmakers," :barf: rather than "representatives." :fire:

    Philosophically, I'm a Libertarian. I'd like to see government out of our daily lives and businesses, and shrunk to a fraction of it's present size. However, I vote conservative since at this time, the Libertarians don't have a chance winning at the national level. The Republicans may disgust me sometimes, but not nearly as much as the Democrats. And unfortunately, a Libertarian vote is one vote that isn't against the Dems. That's just cold, hard, reality.

    What am I?

    I'm so sick of the whole of politicians that I'm ready to file for an exploratory committee. :banghead:

    Edit to add: I took the quiz and scored 31.

    No label fits

    I don’t believe in taxes on businesses – business pays no tax except what they get from their customers, who are generally unaware of how much of the cost of the product is taxes. That is why such taxes are so popular with the folks in DC.

    I believe in a strong education system. I was lucky. I was in school during the Sputnik era. Fears that the Soviets were light years ahead of us fostered a climate in which I got a really good education, with lots of math, science, English and history.

    I believe every citizen has the right to do whatever he or she likes, as long as it does not interfere with their the rights of others.

    I don’t care what your feelings are, the King James Version of the Bible and the works of Shakespeare are the basis for the English language and must be taught in school. The Ten Commandments (and the Magna Charta) are the basis for our system of laws. Leave them stand in any public place where they are. If all you knew about the law was the Ten Commandments, you would do fine in this world.

    I believe our ‘War on Drugs’ is a stupid, pointless waste of time, money and manpower. It has done nothing to keep drugs out of the country but has provided huge fortunes to drug lords. The high cost of these illegal drugs is the reason for much of our crime. Thousands of users are in prisons. These are non-violent offenders, and instead of costing us millions to keep them locked up, they should be out supporting themselves and their families. Prison crowding causes too many violent career criminals to be paroled to make room for more non-violent drug users. This is flat out stupid.

    I believe we have too many lawyer, a medical system overcome by greed, cops hamstrung by Monday-morning-quarterbacking, news media chuck full of anti-American ad-peddlers, and just too darn many citizens without an ounce of initiative or self-reliance.

    I firmly believe in the Constitution and the Bill of Rights, along with the additional Amendments. Many have fought and died for these principals. Millions have lived and worked under them to create the rich and powerful nation we now have.

    I firmly believe it is my right and my responsibility to feed, clothe, shelter and protect myself and my family.

    I do not know which is the greatest danger to this nation: middle-eastern terrorist, the paranoid control freaks in Washington, or the huge number of my fellow citizens who truly are ‘sheep’! I believe it’s going to be a bumpy ride, and I will prevail!

    Based on this political quiz, http://franz.org/quiz.htm, my views are right in line with Jack Kemp.:D Pretty good place to be.:)

    On the scale, 0 is a hard core leftist liberal, aka Jesse Jackson and 40 is a staunch conservative, aka Ronal Reagan. I scored a 28.:D
