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.
As an illegal alien, I don't want to follow the law requiring I come into this country legally. So that's OK.
As an employer, I don't want to follow the law requiring not employing illegal aliens. But I can get away with it, so I employ them. I can pay them under the table. Or, they can get an ID number and claim tax credits for their kids still in Poland, Italy, Ireland, or even Guatemala or Mexico.
As a city, I don't want to follow the law regarding illegal aliens. So I call myself a sanctuary city and protect them, sometimes to the detriment of my legal residents and citizens.
As a citizen, I don't want to follow the laws requiring me to pay income taxes. Can I stop that?
How about property taxes? Sales taxes? Tolls on roads and bridges? Can I stop paying them?
