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.
How exactly does this election matter? I see nothing different. The folks in DC, no matter their party are in it for their own gain. Period.
The GOP had their chance from 2001-2006 when they had control and blew it, why am I to assume they are any different now? Same old tired "leadership", which is another major problem. They are delivering absolutely no message other than yours.
