The good people at Reason have a very interesting quiz, featuring anonymous quotes from the various candidates on nine different issues.
I picked the quotes I liked best and the computer says Ron Paul is my guy.
I suppose that makes sense, at least to some degree, since I first voted for him in 1988, when he was the Libertarian Party’s presidential candidate.
In the interests of full disclosure, though, I should state that I don’t have a candidate at this point.
But I do have a simple test. I will vote for any candidate that will (in my estimation) reduce the burden of government.
Sadly, no Republican has passed this test since 1984. It remains to be seen whether the GOP will nominate someone acceptable in 2012.
