Election 04 revisited

Are you a Liberal? Conservative? Take this poll, about the issues of the 2004 election and see if your views really show who you voted. I got first choice Libertarian party, second choice Republican party, 3rd choice...Constitution party???? WTF? Scary.....

I agree with this part.

I didn't read most of the other principles, but this one is right on the money.

"America's welfare crisis is a government-induced crisis. Government social and cultural policies have undermined the work ethic, even as the government's economic and regulatory policies have undermined the ability of our citizens to obtain work.

Charity, and provision of welfare to those in need, is not a Constitutional responsibility of the federal government. Under no circumstances should the taxpayers of the United States be obligated, under penalty of law through forced taxation, to assume the cost of providing welfare for other citizens. Neither should taxpayers be indentured to subsidize welfare for persons who enter the United States illegally.

The message of Christian charity is fundamentally at odds with the concept of welfare maintenance as a right. In many cases, welfare provisions by the Federal government are not only misdirected, but morally destructive. It is the intended purpose of civil government to safeguard life, liberty and property - not to redistribute wealth. Such redistribution is contrary to the Biblical command against theft.

We encourage individuals, families, churches, civic groups and other private organizations, to fulfill their personal responsibility to help those in need."

I also believe in the old saying that its better to teach a person to fish than it is to give him one.

Hmmm.... my best choice is Dick Cheney apparrently! And my second best choice is Joe Lieberman!?

The Libertarian candidate came in third! (I'm a civil Libertarian)

Must have been my answers on National Defense.

The good news, is that Dennis Kucinich is dead last on my list! And just above him is John Kerry, so at least I voted right last year :p

BTW, you don't have to register to take this poll. You can click "register" and then there's an option to take it without registering!
