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.
There's enough projection in that piece to run half the movie theaters on the planet. Everything she claims to be terrified of Trump doing is stuff the left has already done. She's terrified she and her ilk are going to get treated the same way they've been treating everybody else for the last 50 years.
Mark my word, the pendulum will swing again and people like this will be in charge. When that happens the Republicans will all imitate John McCain and do nothing to oppose them and the left will finish us off.
" When that happens the Republicans will all imitate John McCain and do nothing to oppose them and the left will finish us off."
Yeah, YOU and the other "GOPe RINOs will be finished off, while us true conservatives will be smashing proggy skulls by the dozens!
Hope the author of that SLATE article knows how to raise crops and chickens. When the Revolution comes, she'll be sent out to fields for her "re-education!"
