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.
This was unfortunately according to script, wasn't it? If you are in favor of free speech you are accused by some, including some with power and prominence of actually have bad motives. It is common for those on the left to craft their argument around the idea "These are bad/stupid people" rather than answering the content.
