The smug libertarian ethos seems to be, “Well I don’t know where all this money goes so let’s get rid of it”. maybe check first guys
I think it’s more evil than that, personally.
just being cheeky really. I think he really falls most accurately as a Turdist? Maybe with Doodooian tendencies.
An Orangista, for sure.
So which is worse, having the positions vacant, or having them filled by the people Trump is likely to appoint?

How are your roads? I see their condition as a harbinger of deeper chaos. Why can’t we get fiber everywhere?
