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.
Liberals see doing good at somebody elses expense as good and moral instead of evil. That's why they try to paint rich people as evil people who don't deserve to keep their money. Rich people's money should be taken from them and given to the poor. Egalitarianism is of course a rationalization for envy.
