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.
Nice speech. He is obviously an up and comer and he'd be a huge breath of fresh air.
But I have a problem with all the "compassion" and the "a country as wealthy as ours must take care of those who can't take care of themselves" talk. That's what they said when all those entitlements were started. They will always devolve into the mess we have now because they become an opportunity to gather power and votes.
