First, there's no "they." This is all the product of the imagination of one man, Jim Davies. No idea if he has any formal training in creating "surveys." For those in the choir, you can most likely determine what answer he is after.

Did you guys read the article here? He goes into some detail about why he created TOLFA.

After seeing TOLFA mentioned repeatedly I read all the information and took on the commitment.

I like love the idea of bootstrapping Liberty.

It is like a mental Appleseed.

I scored a 98, which isn't too bad.

When I requested a mentor as an "orphan" guess who took me on? Jim Davis!

Last night I finished the first unit, which I really had to read several times. Learning is so much fun!

Thanks to everyone here who mentioned it so often.

My score was 97/100. I think I went wrong at the pot farm vs cattle rach question. I picked the pot.

99/100

Waiting on a mentor, but I think I'm ok in the meantime. :mellow: Got a group here in the Vampire State of NY, inc., and we study the Constitution and other founding documents, debates, etc. quite a bit. Amazing what government schools won't teach you, like what a racist Lincoln was or that we had fourteen presidents before Washington (as the United States- seventeen if you count Peyton Randolph, Henry Middleton and John Hancock presiding over the United Colonies of America before that).

... me and my tangents. Great thread, thanks for the heads up!

Even more contoversial a subject, is that we were a confederacy first.

There is no controversy.

It is just a fact that is universally ignored, you know, like the Constitution and the BoR's.

Nice work on the test Steven Malory, any idea which question that you might have missed?

"Vampire State of NY," I like that one, I like to call California the Cannibal State, 'cause the public employees consume the tax payers.

BTW, have you read the Hologram of Liberty by Kenneth W. Royce, aka Boston T. Party?
"Hologram of Liberty –The Constitution's Shocking Alliance With Big Government – is a cold splash of water on our civic mythology. Hologram's main contention is that the 1787 Convention, its Constitution and Federal Government was the most brilliant and subtle coup d'etat in political history. "
http://www.javelinpress.com/hologram_of_liberty.html

It is fascinating reading for any student of history, politics, or the Constitution.

I'm not sure which question I missed, and I didn't feel like checking at the time. Maybe I should go back and see.

Haven't read any of BTP's stuff yet. I've never heard of him outside of TMM, honestly, but the glowing props he's gotten here have certainly put him on my list. The tough part about getting my hands on it is my reluctance to order those things online, using a card number- I prefer to do that stuff in cash, in person. No digi-trails to beef up my subversion file.  :ph34r:  When I find it, I'll own it. I am as much a committed bibliophile as I am freedomista. Might break that rule to get a copy of Walts Gulch though.

Thanks for the tip dude, much appreciated

You are in luck, Javelin Press only accepts cash.

I have never had a problem mailing them cash or receiving my books in return.

Yeah, even if you get 100/100 I think it is worthwhile to go through the entire course. Then find someone you can mentor.
