It's been a while since I last took that test. Many things have changed since then. I consider myself very much Libertarian (though I'm registered independent) so lets see what the graph shows:
Seems I've centered myself a bit in comparison to the last time I took the test. But then again, as much as I am for a small government, I do support things like National Healthcare and social security, mostly due to being beneficial to me. Healthcare is not so much beneficial to me now that I have a job with a wonderful benefits package, but I spent a good 6 years of my life living without any type of medial insurance and hoping I wouldn't get sick or hurt badly because I just couldn't afford the bills. Social Security is beneficial to me purely based on the fact that I have been paying into it for 12 years already and I want to see a return on this money I have lost. If the government were to abolish social security and pay me back what I've put into it then I'd be fine with that, but as long as abolishing it means I loose what I put in, I'm gonna support it.
I also took the side with test, and low and behold the two frontrunners in this year's election are at the bottom of my list as I expected:
Gary Johnson 83%, Jill Stein 76%, Rocky Anderson 66%, Mit Romney 65%, Obama 63%
I, like Oto, strongly appose choosing the lesser of 2 evils. I have only voted once in my life, previously when I lived in Kentucky I wanted to stay out of the Jury pool, but always said I would vote if a Black Man or a Woman were to be candidates. So with that knowledge the first election I actually voted in was the last presidential election. I sided with the Libertarians on every subject, but when it came to the presidential vote, the only 2 names on the ballot were not who I wanted to vote for, even if supporting one or the other into office would be a great milestone for our country. I wrote in Mickey Mouse. Honestly, if Mickey were to win it'd be Disney that would ultimately be in charge and I can say I put more trust in Disney then I do in any politician to keep their word.
I now choose not to vote based on the lesser of two evils argument. I can't choose either. Honestly, I wonder what would happen if no one went out to vote. I'm curious as to what we would do in this case. Our government is too big, taking away too many of our rights, and yet the majority of people are fine with this. I just can't get behind this kind of system, or support it. Voting in any candidate would be supporting the government as it stands and I just can't do that. True, not voting can also be seen as letting the establishment get it's way, and also giving up my right to complain, and if you feel that way all the more power to you. Personally, I'm all for rising up against the establishment, but I also realize that I would need a lot of support in order to do that, and I don't have that right now, so I'll continue to live my life as I see fit and not pay attention to this political game.HALO 4 also comes out that day, sounds like a much better use of my free time to me.
