Libertarian stuff...

I just took the Libertarian Purity Test, and I scored a 78. Their scale says:
"51-90 points: You are a medium-core libertarian, probably self-consciously so. Your friends probably encourage you to quit talking about your views so much."

I found this on the page of the Wyoming Libertarian Party, after finding the Free State Wyoming and Wyoming Free State projects. It's an interesting idea, an alternative to the national LP's New Hampshire "Free State Project"(TM) (and if nothing else, libertarians always want a choice!), a plan for 20,000 libertarians to move to NH with the intent of voting and changing local and eventually the state government into something more libertarian in nature, i.e. less government, more personal responibility and freedom!
However, as one of the leading idea contributors to the Wyoming Project pointed out, NH's population is nearly one and a fifth million, and WY's is 500,000, 2.5x less, and it would be much more effective for any number (esp. a large one) of libertarians to move to WY over NH, simply because their votes wouldn't be diluted as badly and they would have more chance of succeeding in their goal of establishing a libertarian state government! Already, the Wyoming state government is more friendly to the People (remember, We the People, who gave the politicians their stinkin' jobs?) in considering amending their Concealed Weapons laws to allow "Vermont-style" carry, that is, ANY CITIZEN without any felonies to carry a concealed weapon, without any special license. (Bad Guys, watch the f**k out!)

I got a 72 on the test, so we're in the same range. Hmmm... I'm sure people wish I wouldn't share my opinions so freely, but it's not like I talk about Libertarianism a lot. Well... I am still trying to convert Johnny....
