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.
The further and further the Democrats move to the left, the more they will be rejected by Americans. They are basically off the left margin already. They really are a cancer on our country at this point.
This is like the Israeli problem. If the Palestinians put down their weapons tomorrow, the war would be over. If the Israelis put down their weapons, there would be no Israel. Substitute the Left and the Right for Palestinians and Israelis.
