I took a libertarian purity test and got a score of 104 (out of 160).
Jason took it and got a score of 84. Ha! Ha!
I teased him about being a mushy, middle-roader when it comes to liberty -- placing him cruelly in the more conservative corner of the Republican Party.
He rejoined that I was the one who got all the "Republican mail" in the household. But that, of course, is only because I worked for the G.W. Bush 2004 campaign phone banks. What can I say? I was fueled by worry about the Supreme Court. I will be doing mea culpas for many years, especially if the Court does not overturn the egregious Roe v. Wade decision and continues to issue anti-liberty rulings, like Kelo v. New London.
But still, 104 -- not bad, eh? Especially when you consider that some of the latter ideas on the test were a little whacked and would require a vast overhaul of the Constitution. I'm comfortable with my score. I'm about as libertarian as you can be without be weird and unrealistic.
