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.
Yes, it scares me. When it comes to medical treatment (and legal help) I want free choice - and screw "the good of all." And I wish they would quit calling it "healthcare." It's treatment from doctors when you get sick.
Meanwhile, I think I'll stay home today and watch the snow fall and maybe do an hour on ye olde eliptical machine, feed the birds, and do some writing for ye olde blogge. Looks like we may have a foot today, so I will crank up ye olde snowplow too.
I think one understands that the Socialist Democrats have spent the past 40-50 years dumbing down our society, rewarding race over merit, and "preparing the battlefield" it is not hard to see that what small vestige of capitalism that remains will soon succumb to socialism in all its leveling beauty. Some will of course remain more level that others, at a completely different altitude, but hoi polloi in their eyes will be doing just fine.
No more winners or losers, just the pastel colors of the grazing pasture the rest of us will be herded into. No worries, no cares, just let the state do it for us. And now we are approaching the coronation of the Perfect Leader who will make all of our cares go away.
