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.
Always remember, the Pew surveys every few years have the percentage of True Liberals at 17%, 19%, 16% of the population. That is enough to dominate one coalition party which has other constituencies - unions, newer hispanics, blacks, single moms.
I think 3 or 4 party politics in Europe hasn't worked that well for them, so I might not actually want what I wish for here. But in our age, our situation, I think it would be a blessing.
