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.
"Since when has a U.S. president allowed the little guys themselves, dressed as they've just come off the farm, authentic as can be -- no Hollywood stylist could do as well -- come out and speak their truth?"
“What I love about these rallies is that they provide such a stark contrast to the vision of America that the Democratic candidates keep describing. The story they’re selling is that these are dark times in a country that’s being run by a lawless autocrat. The rallies are filled with thousands of happy people who are laughing and applauding a president for whom they have very deep affection. Trump comes off as a proud, gloating grandpa, giving off no autocrat vibe whatsoever.”
Trump is one of a kind. There hasn't been a president like him in our history. There have been some good presidents and some effective presidents but in almost every case I suspect that they didn't put America and Americans "first" just not "last". They put their friends, organizations, corporations and foreign deals first. Not necessarily with the intent of harming America but rather with the intent of helping someone or some entity at the expense of America. Trump is actually putting America first. Think of what he could have accomplished in these last three years if the Republicans had been on his side.
