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.
In those days you always had the option of leaving to go settle in another part of the country. We do not have that choice now, and will, unfortunately, succumb to a government's avaricious appetite to accumulate power. It really does not matter who gets elected, government just grows and grows, until one day it will have consumed its populace.
This is the foundation of the right of liberty or the right of privacy. As a Libertarian, I must support this right even when I disapprove of its use -- adultery, prositution and non-medical use of drugs come to mind. I also support this right for things I approve of: marriage between adults who choose marriage, adoption by responsible and loving people, starting a business, traveling as I wish.
Abortion remains the toughest area. It is the only situation I know of where the rights of one, the unborn, conflict so utterly with the rights of another, the mother. It is too flip to say either "every woman should be glad to bear her child" or "every pregnancy is a choice."
