No Libertarians in US Presidential race

According to the Political Compass (you know, the are-you-a-good-Libertarian-or-an-evil-fascist/stalinist test), virtually all Presidential candidates are right-wing authoritarians; or at least all the ones remotely likely to get elected. Bush is, of course, the most extreme in both right-wing and authoritarian dimensions, though current Democratic frontrunner John Kerry is shown as being almost near the centre; i.e., only a tiny bit right-wing and authoritarian. Oddly enough, the most libertarian candidate is Al Sharpton (isn't he meant to be some kind of extremist black-nationalist, and/or funded by the Republicans as a spoiler?).

I like Al Sharpton a lot, and he is certainly the most fun part about watching the primary debates. He really isn't particularly extremist about most issues.

Al Sharpton is The Man. An it turns out he was right about those kids they railroaded for beating and raping a white woman in cntral park.
