From reading through the forums, I expect a large percentage of the people here to be in the Libertarian/Anarchist group. This is to be expected since many people point out how BitCoins will challenge traditional, government backed currencies. I would like to suggest, however, that we could spread our message to the "Liberal" part of the political spectrum by also focusing on how BitCoins will challenge the almighty corporations as well. I can imagine some people are worried that Visa and Paypal have too much control over the monetary system, and BitCoins afford a way to get around them.

Let me know if I left out any obvious choices for the poll.

What's the difference between Neutral, Ignorant and Uninvolved? Tongue

By Statist, do you mean Fascist (State Capitalist)? Libertarians, Liberals and Conservatives are technically 'Statist', in that they approve of a governing state through which to enact political change.

Oh, what... I'm the second Libertarian voting? And we have an anarchist majority so far.

That's kind of unexpected!

Really? Libertarians are just anarchists who are confused.  Grin

Most of the anarchists are probably anarcho-capitalists which is basically pure libertarianism.

This morning I was awoken by my alarm clock powered by electricity generated by the public power monopoly regulated by the US Department of Energy.

I then took a shower in the clean water provided by the municipal water utility. Then, I brushed my teeth with that water, filtered to standards set by the EPA and my state.

After that, I turned on the TV to one of the FCC regulated channels to see what the National Weather Service of the National Oceanographic and Atmospheric Administration determined the weather was going to be like using satellites designed, built, and launched by the National Aeronautics and Space Administration. I watched this while eating my breakfast of US Department of Agriculture inspected food and taking the drugs which have been determined as safe by the Food and Drug Administration.

At the appropriate time as regulated by the US Congress and kept accurate by the National Institute of Standards and Technology and the US Naval Observatory, I get into my National Highway Traffic Safety Administration approved automobile and set out to work on the roads built by the local, state, and federal Departments of Transportation, possibly stopping to purchase additional fuel of a quality level determined by the Environmental Protection Agency, using legal tender issued by the Federal Reserve Bank and printed by the Federal Bureau of Engraving and Printing. On the way out the door I deposit any mail I have to be sent out via the US Postal Service and drop the kids off at the public school.

I park my car on the street, paved and maintained by the Department of Transportation, and put quarters issued by the United States Mint into the parking meter.

Then, after spending another day not being maimed or killed at work thanks to the workplace regulations imposed by the Department of Labor and the Occupational Safety and Health Administration, I drive back to my house which has not burned down in my absence because of the state and local building codes and the fire marshal's inspection, and which has not been plundered of all its valuables thanks to the local police department.

I then log onto the Internet which was developed by the Defense Advanced Research Projects Administration and post on the Bitcoin forums about how the Federal Reserve Bank is going to destroy us all because the government can't do anything right.

+1

except that his .44 wasn't there because his State Legislature, in their infinite wisdom, does not allow him to own a means by which he could so easily remove himself from the tax-farm.  oh, and the internet exists because the relatively free parts of the not-really-free market created cheap home computers, modems and routers that anyone can afford, not DARPA.
