We are a commune of inquiring, skeptical, politically centrist, capitalist, anglophile, traditionalist New England Yankee humans, humanoids, and animals with many interests beyond and above politics. Each of us has had a high-school education (or GED), but all had ADD so didn't pay attention very well, especially the dogs. Each one of us does "try my best to be just like I am," and none of us enjoys working for others, including for Maggie, from whom we receive neither a nickel nor a dime. Freedom from nags, cranks, government, do-gooders, control-freaks and idiots is all that we ask for.
Check out candidate for Maine's open Congressional Seat Dean Scontras at www.teamdean08.com.
He has been quite vocal on this issue, publishing numerous articles such as this one in the Portsmouth Herald (http://www.seacoastonline.com/apps/pbcs.dll/article?AID=/20080210/OPINION/802100336/-1/NEWS09)
There is also an online petition asking the Governor of Maine to rescind the Executive Order that establishes Maine's reputation as a sanctuary state. Sign it at www.teamdean08.com.
Dean testified this week at a public hearing on a resolution to require residency before being eligible for a driver's license. What a novel idea, eh?
There are now only four remaining states in which an illegal alien can legally obtain a license. Maine is looking better every day to undocumented terrorists.
Maine also has a thriving business in selling trailer tags to long haul truckers.
Legal vote buying, reminds me of a local candidate who had an "instant win lottery" at a relatives store for folks who had the sticker the polls hand out. He lost a very close race after the provisional ballots were thrown out.
