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.
Point of clarification. While the founders risked being hung for treason by the usurpers of the time-immemorial liberties enjoyed by English speaking peoples, they were not treasonous to Britain. Rather, they were simply cutting off the cancer that the British government had become. Their "revolution" was less revolutionary and more restoration.
