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.
The Republican Party doesn't want to be bothered by 'Reality Checks'. They're perfectly happy with the status quo: Harvesting donations from the 2020 Trump voter list and assuring the rubes that they're working very hard indeed to preserve 'muh Constitution'. Who is leading the party? Is it a little hard to tell? Is the messaging as weak as the opposition appears to be? That means Republicans are too busy telling their base that, when they're not winning elections, at least they're placing in the Top 3 and that's good enough.
Even if Trump runs in 2024, he'd be facing the same establishment hacks. You can't win a war on two fronts.
