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.
From my 76 years of experience as a man:
Between 13-23 they want a good looking man lots of fun and sex.
23-28 they want a good looking man with a job and a wedding ring and sex.
28-35 they want a man preferably with a job.
35-45 they want a man with a job, sex is optional.
45-65 they want an ex who pays child support and alimony.
65-85 they want a female friend who likes cats, can afford to pay their own way and wants to travel.
Haha! Very true. We have a local lesbian community full of older, divorced women with children and grandchildren living with life long butch lesbians. I doubt sex is much of a component of their relationships.
It can't be fixed. This is how Rome disintegrated. Politics, subterfuge and corruption. The grifters now control an entire political party, the Democrats. It is made up of special interest groups all intent on carving out a piece of the pie unearned and undeserved based solely on whining and complaining. There are two approaches an honest and decent person should take:
1. Protect yourself. reduce the ability of the elite and deep state to screw you over. Watch what you say and post online. Protect your job and your assets.
2. Always vote against the deep state/left wing ideology. Vote down taxes vote out politicians who want to raise taxes, vote against the LGBQT/race/gender cabal. Convince others to do the same.
It cannot be "fixed" but it can be extended. That is the harm that the left intends to bring down on our heads can be put off a little here and a little there making that inevitable collapse of America happen years/decades later. A good example of this is Donald Trump. He disrupted their agenda, perhaps only for four years but they will also have to reverse much of what he has done.
All of the other comments may be correct, I really don't know. But I read an article a couple of years ago written by an American man who is a world traveler. He said that the local girls in each country were trying to decide between the money of a rich foreigner; as opposed to the social connections of a local boy.
He said that the best looking girls always went for the social connections. The idea being that if a girl marries a man with a lot of local family and friends, then her own sphere of experience will grow. She'll get to know and become friends with lots of new people. And females really want a nice big social network; it may be more important to them than money.
