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.
We are in a era of identitarian politics. Progressives have imposed racial identity on each of us. The only possible response is to embrace your racial identity and to work to further the interests of your race. That is racism, but there is no alternative.
Multi-racial, multi-ethnic empires like the US are held together by brute force, a la Hussein's Iraq. This was not the case as recently as the 1950's, when Whites constituted over 80% of the population. Then Whites could ignore the race issue, and indulge themselves over disputes about economics or foreign policy. No longer. If you want to go back to that era (I do.), we have to adopt an immigration policy that rebuilds the White super majority. Otherwise, our own Hussein or Maduro is coming. (Trump is the last gasp of White, republican America.)
