ACLU

Jim,

Folks are not required to show proof of citizenship, so your feelings that they should show it, and Mr Legere's feelings that they should are interesting, but not consistent with the requirements. Think what you want, but please do not interfere with these folks' rights to vote. This business of people taking it on themselves to decide who should vote and who should not is insulting and degrading. When it is applied only to people of one race, it is by definition racist. It is intimidating to new Mainers, and people who practice it should be embarrassed. Unfortunately, they are usually too wrapped up in their own self righteousness to have the sense to be embarrassed.

How do people stand for this?

The Governor cut taxes by 200+ million dollars, primarily benefitting higher income people, and proposes cutting benefits that keep 6000 elderly people in assisted living. Where do these people go? Many are ill, many have dementia, many have no relatives, many with relatives don't have capacity to care for them.

There is a solid core of 40% of the population that does not care when he lies (quoting Forbes Magazine wildly inaccurately), insults people and groups (Kiss my butt), threatens and bullies (countless examples). But to throw grandma into the street? Is there no limit to your collective tolerance for this venal man?

David Duke Endorsed Ron Paul

You are known by who you hang out with. Ron Paul was endorsed by David Duke, former Imperial Wizard of the Ku Klux Klan, as well as by a whole range of right wing nutbag militia groups. When asked to disavow his followers in these camps, he refused. The man has some positions that make sense (like his isolationist views), but he is also a dnagerous crank.
