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.

Note that anywhere the citizen shows up armed and with steely resolve to protect innocence and property, the thugs stand down. These people are ultimately bullies. The only thing a bully understands is force, superior force, overwhelming force, righteously wielded force.
Read James Bradley’s book, The Imperial Cruise : A secret History of Empire and War. Teddy and cabinet come off as men of there time, but racist today. Interesting information on Far East politic, not taught in school.
To be sure, TR had qualities to be admired and he is an important figure of history to study. But he was a self-serving tyrant who held little regard or respect for the constitution. Many of our current social problems are the consequences of his New Nationalism.
