Nice, I was on the Big Hole River three times last year. I never leave on a sales run in the summer without my fly rods in the rig. Life (and summer around here) is to short to pass by a sweet looking spot in the river. :thumb:

I like going after cuts as well. They are great to catch.

Too Short a quiz, but the answer is about right. Put a couple of maybes there There is no reason for a draft now but there have been in the past and could be again. Maybe on the national ID card, not really a need but people do need some sort of identification.

You can't be libertarian if you support our FP in the ME: bombing Iran, staying in Iraq, military bases continuing to be built over there etc. You have to believe that the state is a criminal gang that lies in all categories.

Were those FP questions on the test?

...but I still don't see any Foreign Policy questions. The test is totally inadequate. The core belief of all libertarians both left and right is embracing the non-aggression doctrine on: personal issues, economic issues, and foreign policy issues.

Pretty much the same answer I always get. Only with more questions it's usually 90% Economic issues with personal issues fluctuating between 60-80% depending on the questions. I lean toward conservative on those with some libertarian stands.

Your PERSONAL issues Score is 70%.
Your ECONOMIC issues Score is 100%.

I prefer a lump sum total to see how much govt a person prefers. So I'd be more like 80-85% using these questions. It'd probably be lower with other questions or more questions including what states can do. It doesn't break down what things I'd allow state govts to do. Therein lies the crux. Generalities just don't work for this.

Agreed. But the radicals in any party have flaws. One reason I was such a big Ron Paul fan was that he bucked two major Libertarian ideas: He was pro-life, and favored strong boarder enforcement.

He also didn't drone on about national ID cards and the NAFTA highway nearly as much as his followers did. Only thing he stressed too much was the federal reserve, but the goodness in that is that I think more Americans are now educated about what the fed does than ever were before.
