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.
warlord ... I tend to agree with you that this is the Paul that should be running for President, not his eccentric father. But Rand is a newly minted legislator already, and needs to have more time to learn the dark and somewhat devious ways of our Congress before he starts to explore presidential requirements. After all, Obama, who was far less experienced than Rand Paul, has proved time and again that he is a slow and stubborn learner.
