QUIZ: “Are you a true Ron Paul supporter?”

I love the title of this quiz, because apparently this can be answered by a mere 15 questions (I passed BTW, whew). Mad props to Christian Science Monitor for making me laugh out loud a few times.

At one point I was slightly bewildered by the question of my hypothetical daughter getting married and answered “whatever.” But that falls far from my ability to decipher this Ayn Randian ultra-nihilistic approach to unemotional parenting when they phrased the rest, “just don’t develop any altruistic feelings for your spouse, as doing so will interfere with the imperative to act in accordance with the hierarchy of your values.” Translation: Be sure your future selfish lesbian daughter isn’t marrying a charity case, or something.

Whatever. We’ll cross that bridge when we come to it.

Here’s the full list of my 15 answers, for the curious:

    I also found my way to the Quiz.  But after taking it, I suspect that it may be a tool to steer Ron Paul supporters away from him.  Consider the way the questions are worded to make Ron Paul supporters seem like gold-bug wacko’s.  Yeah, you and I know there’s more to Ron Paul’s story than a bag of gold at the end of the rainbow.  But a lot of people, I’d say most people, don’t have much of an idea about the depth of his platform and if they take this quiz with only limited knowledge they may walk away questioning their support.  I’d like to take the quiz again and answer the way a typical person might approach the quiz who does not have a deep understanding of Ron Paul’s views.
