Since we’re obviously on the political quiz kick this week, I wanted to share an experience in real life libertarian advocacy.
Last night I went out drinking with some friends here in West Cleveland, and I took a few of the Peirce for Ohio Governor promotional cards with me (my apologies for not having a photo, but needless to say it’s very professional). On one side is the World’s Smallest Political Quiz, and on the other is some, well… marketing propaganda for the Peirce campaign. I had a stack of about 40 with me when I left the house, I came back with zero.
The best part, I didn’t have to push it but on a few people, and they suddenly became viral marketers. All around the bar where we were, people were suddenly lighting up over this novel little quiz (and even though it’s obviously skewed, the general consensus was that the issues raised were timely if anything).
The crowning moment though, was when I went back to the bar counter at one point to get more drinks for our group, and… I shit you not… here’s what someone asked me: “Hey have you taken this quiz? This is fucking great!”
I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again: liberty is already pop-culture, forget left and right… we need to brand ourselves as the party that stands up and says: “You suck, government.”

Update: a suggestion for The Advocates… start taking names and scores of everyone and putting them in a database for people to spread this to all their friends and to see where major celebrities rank, this was something that was asked quite often.
