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.
Prager's piece is disapointing, no matter how true it may be.
Every campaign in GA right now is about Party, only its "we're not those guys". The nation is horribly divided, with patriotism and loyalty now to the Party rather than the country, the reason elections are so important is we are determining which party will be The Party when the transition to full fascism is complete.
Pity the FF didn't add a proviso that anyone who receives more than 50% of their income from the public purse (any source) should be denied the vote. I surprised they didn't, they knew the danger of Democracy and Bread and Circuses.
Do I want to deny some poor welfare mother the vote? Damn right I do.
I just relocated to a new state, and have quite consciously decided to refrain from voting this time. For my new district the federal and state-wide offices are a foregone conclusion anyway, and I know I just don't know enough about the local candidates to make an informed decision. By two-years from now I think I'll have a pretty good handle on who the stupid or corrupt ones are.
For those who choose to not vote I can only say thank you. If you are either uninformed or uninterested then feel free to stay home. What I do not like is the voter fraud and manipulation of the voting machines and counts. The entire voting process is overdue for some changes that would ensure our votes count and the votes of dead people and other illegal votes do not count.
