Citizenship Quiz ...

Now, this is from the INS ... so I guess new citizens are supposed to know this stuff, how well do YOU? C'mon ... no using references ... no sneaking off to Google to look something up in a new window ... walk up to the voting booth and see how you do!

CITIZENSHIP QUIZ

I got this from eagle243's journal ... he got 11/12, I didn't do so well, only getting 9/12 (which scored a "not bad" ... I was a bit off on #2 and #8, outright flubbed #5 ... and only got #11 by way of a good guess [these numbers are, of course, assuming they give the same sequence of questions]). He postulates needing to score 75% on this to be able to vote, so I guess I just snuck in under the wire!

OK ... Here's one for the Anti-War crowd ...

Yeah, I know ... I've been pretty damn hawkish in this space of late ... frankly, most of my "blow it all to bits" sentiment is in reaction to the lunatic Left with their endless predictable neo-Stalinist-lap-dog drivelling ... if they say "Peace!", damn it, I'm going to say "Armageddon!".

However, most Libertarian thought is definitely in the no-war camp. I saw the following today, and figured, in fairness, I'd pass it along as well. This was a statement by dear old Ron Paul, who is the most Libertarian member of Congress (even if he is a "small L" libertarian, and a member of the Republican Party). I've posted other things from Ron Paul here, and I feel that this list of questions (read on the floor of the House last September) really ought to be considered ... Is It Not True?

On the other hand ...

I can't help but agree with a piece that includes passages like these:
"It's not that there are no meaningful arguments against going to war. And it's not that there are no principled people in the anti-war movement. .... However, the vast majority of the vocal "anti-war" protestors use arguments that are less rooted in principle and more rooted in finding a reason to rip President Bush and make themselves look smart. "
... this from "At least get your story straight!"
