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.
Look, anyone can like Western Civilisation and all its advances in rights, liberties, prosperity, and equality. It takes a real intellect to see that it all really just sucks and should be taken down a peg at every opportunity.

Why should we pay any attention to dead white men?
The problem is essentially this: whether it be gender, race, or sexual orientation most of the people on 'that' side of the spectrum who are running for public office or a bureaucratic position, a teaching position or any position of authority are doing so to "change the world" to their point of view. 90% of white male politicians, bureaucrats, teachers, etc. are not taking those jobs to create an anti-female, anti-black (or other race), or anti-homosexual world or to punish those who fall into one of these categories.
To put it another way almost all of the women, blacks, hispanics and homosexuals in politics and seeking positions of power are sexist, racist and/or heterophobes. Now don't misinterpret that. I don't mean all women or even all feminists are sexists what I'm saying is those who are and those who strongly believe in the need to change the world to their point of view choose to run for office or take positions of power exactly for that reason while all the unbiased ones are busy living their lives and not forcing their beliefs down our throats. Ditto for the other categories.
I wish it weren't true. I wish that the black caucus used their power to help black people and not just to race bait whites and rob the treasury. I wish female senators would instead of 'fighting for women's rights and lesbian rights instead fight for everyone's rights. I wish that hispanic senators and representatives didn't try to slip amnesty bills past the people but instead simply represented all the people of their district.
The only way this will ever get fixed (i.e. get the bigots out of power) is to have "normal" women, people of color and LGBQT seek positions of power and displace the SJW.
