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.

Holding out hope that the right person can do that. Starts with immigration, tax law, reducing government. But someone has to have the guts to do it and push hard without fear of his party not supporting him nor the press. Once the public sees they have a leader who will do what he says, the rest of Washington will have to follow or will face the boot.
