Here's a lesson in history:
In 2005, Maine was rated the No. 1 worst state for taxes (money.cnn.com), while the country was experiencing a booming economy.
Maine Yankee was a 950-megawatt plant; in Oregon, plans are for a 900-megawatt wind farm that will take 305 turbines and cover 32,000 acres. How many trees and how much private land will be taken by eminent domain to support the power grid for wind power in Maine?
If people like how things are in Maine, they should keep the same party in power. If not, vote for someone else.
