Scoring Barack

Filed under: Uncategorized — Kevin M @ 11:33 am

Now that he’s been in office for a few months, the mystery that was candidate Obama is coming into focus.  So I thought I’d run President Obama’s apparent positions through the Libertarians’ two-axis political test.

Note that the LP test is criticized for making everyone look more libertarian.  Doesn’t help Barack Obama much. Obama seems to score a solid ZERO on economic freedom, but might move along the personal freedom scale depending on the questions asked.

I think the answers to the economic questions are uncontrovertable, but the personal issue questions are somewhat fuzzier.  I’m going with the Barack that walks, not the Barack that talks.  If one were to change the draft question to a “mandatory public service” question, even this axis would be near zero.

NOT a friend of Liberty.
