    I like the idea if concentrating them all in one thread.

    Perhaps we could tow the thread out to the Gulf of Mexico and sink it.

    A cause that could actually get me away from the computer and outside :)

    "Penalties against possession of a drug should not be more damaging than the drug itself." —Jimmy Carter

    Not really, but I scored much more libertarian than authoritarian on the Political Compass test.

    I'm not a Libertarian but I am a libertarian, does that count?

    I did too. Waaay more.

    And yet I believe that government has a role in society.

    Go figure.

    One of these online test dealies sez I'm a paleo-libertarian, whatever that means. At my age, of course, "paleo" is apropos. :D:D:D Paleo-something, damfino what.

    Fiscal conservative, for sure, but I guess that comes from dealing in real money, not virtual money. And, of course, being a Depression Baby, raised on stories of the 1930s.

    Government? Sure, we gotta have it, but this bloated thing we've wound up with makes Rosie O'Donnell look anorexic. It obviously doesn't work worth a hoot, or our money would still have buying power.

    It forgot how to work for the people.

    But we can change that.

    Yeah, come on guys, I actually liked some of you, until you decided it be fine to drown me in the tar filled gulf. I at least deserve the Pacific Ocean if you're going to tow me out and dump me. ;)

    You think we want globs of libertarian all over our beaches and killing our sea birds?

    Aw, Gelfin, libertarians would avoid making a mess. It's part of their personal responsibility thing. Liberals would make a mess and then want somebody else to pay for the cleanup.

    The free-market would keep globs of government hand outs to the oil industry from washing up on the beaches.

    Sounds great. Too bad it's unrealistic.
