      Actually, according to the world's smallest political quiz at the Libertarian website, I am somewhat of a liberal libertarian. The quiz breaks down political leanings beyond liberal and conservative into liberal, conservative, statist, and libertarian. According to their categorization, liberals favor the use of government to produce more economic equality, conservatives favor the use of government to produce order, statist favor using it for both, and libertarians for neither.Interestingly, I am somewhat pulled between libertarianis and Soros open society ideas. There is a great difference between the 2 on the role of government in the economy, but both oppose the Orwellian police state, and current US mideast policy.I would have loved to see Soros and the late Harry Browne debate economic mnatters.

      > Gordon, I trust very little about the run up to the stimulus as Paulson and the Goldman Sacs crew ran to Bush with the bad news. The republicans knew they were going down and they decided to take the money with them. A bankrupt government could not accomplish change and they left us destitute. I suspect it was intentional but it will take decades of scholarship to prove that point. Dodd is coming on CNN as I type. I would try to log roll the package I mentioned previously. Dodd says we must act now. No more too big to fail and across the board consuumer protection. This is probably not socialist enough for Wil nor libertarian enough for Tom but for me it is a start. Dodd knows he is dead in Ct. with this anti business stance. Dodd is the spy who got inside now he is running like hell to escape the Ct. money men. Sometimes flight is as courageous as fight. WRH
