If you have a minute, take this test

someone just showed it to me and it's pretty humorous. I scored a 25. Apparently not nearly as hard-core a libertarian as I thought.

I scored a 47

31-50 points: Your libertarian credentials are obvious. Doubtlessly you will become more extreme as time goes on.

where did all your points come from? I answered almost all of the one question points in the libertarian fashion and two of the three point ones (reduce taxes by fifty percent and cut spending by fifty percent)

A good example of how to skew your results by the way you pose the questions.

yeh I was thinking the same thing.
The questions are so vague...I found myself saying "I sort of agree with this..."

Your score is...

74

You are a medium-core libertarian, probably self-consciously so. Your friends probably encourage you to quit talking about your views so much.


And my enemies beg me to :)

Yeah my friends are all either a lot more liberal than I am or apolitical. I'm not sure which subset of friends wants me to shut up more often  :)
