    In reading a recent introduction and some replies (Kathianne!) - thought this might be a fun topic - I look forward to some of the responses.

    I lean about 45 degrees to the right. I feel I am pretty conservative on most issues, although I do have a soft spot the TRULY down trodden. I think government is too large and beyond their original scope. Government should be about giving a person a hand up, not a hand out and should generally let us tend to our own affairs.

    I do not classify myself as a Republican. Today's Republicans are basically the Democrats of 25 or 30 years ago.

    Anyway - let the fur fly!

    I'll take up the challenge! I'm afraid my math is pretty crummy, so no degrees. I'm pretty 'right' on most issues, though do have the same ideas about giving a 'hand up', though prefer to see this from community, rather than gov't.

    34 points: Your libertarian credentials are obvious. Doubtlessly you will become more extreme as time goes on.

    This is fairly accurate. I define myself as a libertarian-leaning Republican, and while I answered many of the 1-point questions yes, I answered very few of the 3/5 pointers yes.
