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.
I literally am stunned by what I see happening anymore. The Democrat party has gone rogue. No! Far worse than rogue, more like dangerous to our country. I keep thinking that some Democrat will stand up and put a stop to it but I see no sign of that happening. They have all lost their mind and like lemmings are collectively running themselves, all their followers and our country off the cliff. I honestly think we are in deep trouble and at great risk. I think that they are so angry about losing power that they have resolved to embark on a course that will return them to power or destroy us trying. You may not agree. In fact probably no one will agree that the future looks so bleak. I can only say that history tells us that when things go bad it seems to get worse slowly and reaches a tipping point and that gets worse very quickly. I hope I'm wrong but can anyone point to someone or some group in the Democrat party that might turn them around?
This situation reminds me of the problem of someone murdering their lover/spouse because they love them so much but they think they are losing them. Rather than allow them to leave that only thing they think makes any sense is to kill them so no one else can have them. I think that's where the Democrats are today. They are so jealous of Trump seducing away their voters and taking away their power that they would rather destroy our government rather than let someone else run it.
