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.
People voted "for an agenda very different from what they want and need."
Sen. Bernie Sanders
Quite different, perhaps, from what his poor Vermonters "need and want" which seems mostly to be free stuff, no jobs, single mothers on welfare, and plentiful meth and heroin. Thank God for our moral and intellectual superiors. We would be lost without them, just like the Pilgrims and the American pioneers were.
I have heard this line so often from leftists. The arrogance it expresses is stunning. "We know better than you do what you want and need." Really? Unfortunately, too many Americans agree with this view.
Bernie (the Red) Sanders is a socialist/communist. This is what he believes. It would be so much better for everyone, Vermonters and other Americans as well, if he didn't hide what he believes most of the time. But Bernie isn't stupid. He knows if he doesn't hide what he is that his political career is over. Even the crazies in Vermont who keep reelecting him would reject him if Bernie took off the sheep's clothing.
