Insanity is when you continue to do the same thing and expect different results. Maine people are not insane, so why do they continue to elect the Democrats to the Legislature and expect improvements? Maine continues to decline.
If Maine really wanted the millions in funds that come with the “Race to the Top” program, why is it not publicized that one of the qualifications is to have charter schools? The teachers’ union opposes charter schools and the Democrats agree.
Why are Maine’s health insurance rates so high? Maine Republicans have repeatedly proposed corrective measures, only to be voted down.
For Congress, why has Speaker Nancy Pelosi encouraged the House to first pass legislation and read it later?
For President Barack Obama, why has he been caught on camera many times being disrespectful to our patriotic customs? Why is he suing the state of Arizona for enforcing federal laws and, at the same time, not protecting Arizona territory from Mexican criminals? Has he a racist preference when there is no prosecution of ACORN and the Black Panthers for their illegal actions?
When will the media start rendering news that does not favor President Obama and the Democrats, instead of omitting those stories?
If Islam is not supporting the terrorists, why don’t the “moderate” Muslims speak up and condemn these radicals? Non-Muslims are not afraid to speak.
Should Mainers elect Republicans in November? Absolutely.
