The quiz (via Conservative Dialysis, and located at the link above) is all right, although it is based on the assumption that one is conservative (read: GOP party stalwart) or liberal (read: post-liberal communist sympathizer). As a radical libertarian, a lot of the answer choices left me highly unsatisfied.
In fact, the Libertarian Party isn't good enough for me. Even apolitical school children laugh at the LP, since its "platform" is more or less a manifesto explicating a rigid ethical system. Note that a platform should be a set of realistic policy proposals that have broad support in the electorate.
Manifesto, Platform. Platform, Manifesto. These two things are not the same. Yet, though willing to be crazy and extreme, the LP is ashamed to admit that it theoretically supports the overthrow of the US government. Theoretically, many people support this. I support revolution, in theory. In practice it's messy and unlikely to produce good results. A political party can't really support the overthrow of the political system, regardless, although I suppose a militant group could.
There will be an actual post about the CAFTA and how wonderful it is, and its implications for our War on Terror and Western Hemisphere strategic goals, later. Around 1 am CDT Tuesday.
