Why? Because I feel like it. And I'm a Libertarian, so I believe in individual freedom. So there.
Maybe next week I'll talk about tennis, or my hair, or maybe I'll talk about Cash for Clunkers.
Anyway. There is a quiz you can take that is quite accurate. It's called The World's Smallest Political Quiz. I'm sure you already know your own political leanings, but what the heck. Quizzes are fun!
If you so desire (because we are all free to make our own choices) click on the link above and take the quiz.

economic liberty and individual freedom are practical options in
today's world. Statists tend to distrust the free market, support

Okay, so did you take the quiz?
What did it say? Was it accurate?
Let's have a little summit. Sorry I can't provide beer, but if you share with us I'll buy you a brewsky at next year's BlogHer.
Is it a deal?
