Buddha takes Beliefnet’s Politic-O-Matic quiz …
How would Buddha vote?
A Ron Paul Libertarian? Really? According to the Politic-O-Matic analysis, our answers on behalf Siddhārtha indicate that he would believe that “government, quite frankly, is too big.”
“You’re happy to trumpet this belief from the rooftops,” continues Politic-O-Matic. “It spends too much, it regulates too much, it gets embroiled in foreign affairs that it has no business getting involved with, and it constantly passes laws that simply attempt to make itself larger. How many of the country’s problems can simply be attributed to rampant bureaucracy and governmental excess? Downsize Big Government and return control to the people and you’ve got a solid foundation for prosperity and success.”
Really? Perhaps we need to spend some time in self-denial as we meditate on this.
