There is danger from all men. The only maxim of a free government ought to be to trust no man living with power to endanger the public liberty.
Public virtue cannot exist in a nation without private, and public virtue is the only foundation of republics. There must be a positive passion for the public good, the public interest, honour, power and glory, established in the minds of the people, or there can be no republican government, nor any real liberty: and this public passion must be superior to all private passions. John Adams

I hereby declare it so!

For the progressive, there is very little to love about the United States. Washington, Jefferson, Madison? A bunch of rotten slaveholders, hypocrites, and cowards even when their hearts were in the right places. The Declaration of Independence? A manifesto for the propertied classes. The Constitution? An artifact of sexism and white supremacy. The sacrifices in the great wars of the 20th century? Feeding the poor and the disenfranchised into the meat-grinder of imperialism. The gifts of Carnegie, Rockefeller, Vanderbilt, Morgan, Astor? Blood money from self-aggrandizing robber barons. Nat Rev

I told the guys, they liked that, a lot. Though Davies - he's my tac officer in flight - asked if he can be a temporary resident of the most boring State.  :laugh:

I'm guessing Wyoming?

Interesting.  I would opt for one of the central plains states but they are anything but boring when the weather gets angry.  Wonderful people too.

In the movie "Hunt For Red October" I  believe they were thinking Montana.  It could go either way. :patriot:
