Yet Another Quiz

Life's been busy, and my muse has been mute recently, so you get more filler:

The Honest Bloggers Quiz (or, making my biases clear)

Q&A in the extended entry.

1. Which political party do you typically agree with?

Republicans by a slim margin -- I'm libertarian but not Libertarian (mainly because of their appalling alliance with the Buchanan brigade, loony left, and Islamonazis in the current war)

2. Which political party do you typically vote for?

My votes in the last couple of elections broke down to 80% Republican, 10% Democrat, 10% Libertarian.

3. List the last five presidents that you voted for.

(Too young for 5 elections): 1988 - Ron Paul(L); 1992 - Andre Marrou(L); 1996 - Bob Dole(R); 2000 - GW Bush(R)

4. Which party do you think is smarter about the economy?

Libertarians - hands off by the government

5. Which party do you think is smarter about domestic affairs?

Libertarians - hands off means hands off!

6. Do you think we should keep our troops in Iraq or pull them out?

Keep them there until their mission is accomplished - think Japan after WWII.

7. Who, or what country, do you think is most responsible for 9/11?

Osama Bin Laden and Saudi Arabia.

8. Do you think we will find weapons of mass destruction in Iraq?

Umm, we already have, just not in large quantities yet. That's a straw man anyway: Paul Wolfowitz laid out the Bush doctrine quite clearly on September 13, 2001 as lower Manhattan still burned -- we must end states that sponsor terrorism to keep this from happening again.

9. Yes or no, should the U.S. legalize marijuana?

Yes, along with most other currently-illegal drugs. Didn't we learn anything in the 1930s?

10. Do you think the Republicans stole the last presidental election?

Hell no, although I am convinced that Al Gore was determined to win at all costs, including undermining the legitimacy of our institutions. A man with more class would have done like Nixon did when he conceded to Kennedy in a close election.

11. Do you think Bill Clinton should have been impeached because of what he did with Monica Lewinsky?

No, but he should have been impeached and convicted for perjuring himself about it.

12. Do you think Hillary Clinton would make a good president?

Depends on your definition of good. I probably disagree with all her policies, but if she could be matched with a Republican congress, she might not be too bad, much like Bill Clinton after the 1994 midterm elections - welfare reform and NAFTA were two fine accomplishments.

13. Name a current Democrat who would make a great president.

Sam Nunn, Joe Lieberman.

14. Name a current Republican who would make a great president.

For our current circumstances? The one we have - GWB.

15. Do you think that women should have the right to have an abortion?

Poorly phrased question, since they already do. My position on abortion - I think that the fetus is not human until it exhibits a steady human brainwave (alpha-wave?) pattern. At that point, it becomes a person, and is entitled to protection under the law (meaning some balancing of its rights versus the mother's).

16. What religion are you?

Methodist by background and practice, Deist in my theology.

17. Have you read the Bible all the way through?

Yes, including some of the original Greek (along with Latin and German).

18. What's your favorite book?

It's a toss-up among The Fountainhead by Ayn Rand, Lucifer's Hammer by Larry Niven and Jerry Pournelle, and The Lord of the Rings by Tolkien -- all books that I re-read fairly regularly.

19. Who is your favorite band?

Need you ask? Rush.

20. Who do you think you'll vote for president in the next election?


21. What website did you see this on first?

Jennifer's History and Stuff.
