We are a commune of inquiring, skeptical, politically centrist, capitalist, anglophile, traditionalist New England Yankee humans, humanoids, and animals with many interests beyond and above politics. Each of us has had a high-school education (or GED), but all had ADD so didn't pay attention very well, especially the dogs. Each one of us does "try my best to be just like I am," and none of us enjoys working for others, including for Maggie, from whom we receive neither a nickel nor a dime. Freedom from nags, cranks, government, do-gooders, control-freaks and idiots is all that we ask for.
Absolutely. The only way I want to get hold of your money is if you give it to me voluntarily in exchange for something of value that I offer you. I don't want to put a gun to your head, nor let you put one to mine. Nor do I want some third party, like the government, to put a gun to your head on my behalf, or vice versa.
