This may come as a shock to some, but this columnist has a low opinion of the liberal policies of the Democratic Party. With its repeated blunders, you would think democratic leaders and candidates would be teeming with wisdom acquired from the multiplicity of failures. So we wait with baited breath as the Democrats reveal their campaign strategy. Surely with past experience and knowledge gained, our liberal friends will acknowledge their misguided ways and chart a new course toward smaller government, embracing the truths of Conservatism…or not.
You see, Conservatives, common sense Americans, view failures as an opportunity to learn. It is a time to change our ways and not repeat missteps. Not so with the Democratic Party; instead, failures are just merely another wasted, foggy chapter hidden in the nether of oblivion that is the Democratic policy machine.
So we are back to the unveiling. What a shock! It’s the same old song and dance. It’s the one hundred dollar safe bet, entry level question on the game show “So You Want to Waste a Billion Dollars”.
Question #1 for Billions of dollars in debt: What are the Democratic policies from the past 35 years of power?
Answer #1: We need more government programs, extensive environmental regulations, and more regulation on business, higher taxes and wrap it all in mandates. When Augusta can’t pay for it, local townships will be forced to raise property taxes.
Question #2 for absolute bankruptcy: Now that you, the Democratic Party, have won your billions of dollars in debt, how do you propose to solve this crisis?
Answer #2: We need more government programs, extensive environmental regulations, and more regulations on business, higher taxes and wrap it all in mandates because there’s now way Augusta can pay for it. So, please raise property taxes.
Question #3 for finally turning Maine into a fiscal wasteland: If the voters of Maine begin to realize the Democratic party is no longer the Party of the working class, but, instead, the Party of trust fund elites, how will you change your policies to regain their trust?
Answer #3: We need more government programs, extensive environmental regulations, and more regulations on business, higher taxes and wrap it all in mandates because we have no idea how to pay for it. Please raise property taxes.
It might be funny if it wasn’t so true. Democratic candidates in this county and across the State of Maine are kicking off their campaigns with this phrase, “We need government…” Frankly, I prefer to say, “We do not need government.”
Mainers are beginning to see the truth for themselves. You can only lie to Maine people for so long and then it’s time for retribution. The Piscataquis Democrats were barely able to muster twenty people at their caucus; while, the Republicans filled the County Courthouse to capacity.
A friend of mine, who is a former gun dealer, received a phone call from an individual wishing to purchase a gun. After this friend informed the man he no longer sold guns, he asked him what it was needed for. Come to find out, the Piscataquis Democrats wanted to purchase a gun for a fund raising raffle. You don’t say…hmmm.
Isn’t it strange that a Party that wishes to outlaw guns wants to buy one to raise funds? Why would that be?
Perhaps it’s because the Democrats know they need money from the Conservatives. They can’t raise it from their own. The life-sized cardboard cutouts of Barack and Michelle have begun to fade in the window. So now, as usual, the Democrats have to raise money through deceit and off the hard working backs of Conservatives.
Finally, my friend, who wishes to remain anonymous, recently informed me that he, through extensive research in the hallowed annals of Maine history, has discovered that an old Maine term for Democrat is “Crittah”. Well, I think it’s time to declare an open season on “Crittah’s”.
