I've not done a quiz in forever...

Jefferson
Libertarian - You believe that the main use for
government is for some people to lord it over
others at their expense. You maintain that the
government should be as small as possible, and
that civil liberties, "victimless
crimes", and gun ownership should be basic
rights. You probably are OK with capitalism.
Your historical role model is Thomas Jefferson.


Which political sterotype are you?

This seems mostly true, though doesn't really go far enough (I have a feeling that the way I answered one question pushed my results in the other direction a little). I think that mostly the state/government/police/whatever should either keep to themselves or (in the case of police) just not exist. I think people should fend for themselves. I think that companies should be able to function and do as much as they can, unhampered by government restrictions. I think that things should only be illegal if you get caught while doing them by someone who cares. Anyone who wants a gun should have one.

However, I do think we need a government for things like national defense. I think the borders should be locked tightly closed, no one in or out anymore. 'Innocent until proven guilty' really doesn't cut it in defending the borders and chasing down terrorists.

I think all education should be privatized, from pre-school on up. You get what you pay for. Want a good education for your kids? Get a good job. Will this cause a greater rift between classes? Probably. People who try hard will be able to move from one to another though; it's not impossible, just a greater challenge.

Funny, this almost exactly matches how my NationState is...

I got home at 5 tonight, having a whole plan of stuff that I had to do before my mother arrives tomorrow. Fridge was dead. Made calls about it. Pointless MUSH arguments took more time. Made more calls about fridge.

Now, 9:20, I finally have a "new" fridge (an older, smaller one from another apartment. Whoever moves into the apartment will get a new one.).

So tired, so stressed. Can't wait for this "vacation" to be over.
