The Maine Way

 

Bruce Poliquin has won reelection to Congress to represent CD 2 by 2,000 votes. In the realms of sanity and fairness, that would be the headline, but once again, forces from outside CD 2 have conspired to work against the wishes of the voters in this District. The cycle of southern liberal arrogance continues.

Ranked Choice Voting was created to insure that Republicans would never be elected again. Southern liberals have been constantly frustrated with the conservative vote in Northern Maine. The voting block leans right so, in the minds of the political elites, rural Maine doesn’t vote the “right” way. So, how do overcome the obvious intellectual deficits of northern hicks, those lovable, quaint, and post card worthy but not vote worthy backwoods Mainers?

So convinced of their intellectual superiority, liberals have simply awarded themselves extra votes. If the Democrats can’t win the first time, it just wasn’t fair, so they will add in the votes of their stealth democrat candidates, a.k.a. Independents. Extra votes, do-over votes, everybody-gets-a-win-as-long-as their not Republican votes, and Democrats can now say not only do they have 3 campaign dollars to every one Republican dollar, but also, 3 votes per Democrat voter to every one vote per Republican.

The voters of CD 2 voted against RCV by 20,000 votes but it narrowly passed because of its support in CD 1. So which District supports Ranked Choice voting? Certainly, not the Second Congressional District!

But the majority will of the voters for the First Congressional District (RCV)will now be used to circumvent the majority will of the voters of the Second Congressional District, who have given Bruce Poliquin the victory to represent them in Washington. The voters in CD 2 voted against do-over, twosies, and threesies votes, but CD 1 has overruled rural Maine and demanded we vote and vote again until we get it “right”. In other words, voting the Southern Maine Way is all we have Left.

My Vote for Bruce Poliquin, My Vote for 2A, My Vote for Liberty

 

They want it bad. Oh, they really do. They’re convinced there is going to be a blue wave.

What remains to be seen is the response from the voters. For us in the 2nd District, the question will be whether we fall back into patterns of old of allowing liberal false narratives and skewed polling data to intimidate us or remain vigilant to defend the ground we have retaken. The choice is ours.

As for me, in the 2nd District, I choose Bruce Poliquin. To be truthful, I am surprised that the race is considered close. You would have thought we would have learned our lessons by now.

The first being the lesson we all learned in the Q3 battle. The truth that the rural voters banded together to turn back the assault against our 2A rights from Micheal Bloomberg and the alliance of southern Maine liberal interests groups. But united as one we stood and won a decisive victory.

So why divided now? The contrast is the same. Jared Golden is allied with the special interests that attacked our Natural Born Rights incessantly.

From tossing rifles on the ground to refusing to shake Poliquin’s hand after he had particularly bad debate performance, he seems more a tantrum throwing brat than self-described veteran who wants to be a leader. One that struggles with the truth it would seem, as everyone from Governor LePage to the Wall Street Journal have called Golden out on his blatant lies concerning Poliquin’s votes on healthcare. In this election more than ever, playing loose with the facts is a prerequisite to running for office in the Democrat Party. Such stark mischaracterizations, you would think, will not pass the scrutiny of the voters of the 2nd District, so noted for their adherence to common sense, but, stranger things have happened, like a guy throwing a rifle on the ground and still considered to have the intellectual and common sense fortitude to represent the 2nd District.

Bruce Poliquin has worked tirelessly for Maine. From the moment he has taken office, he has been relentless in defense of our great state. I’ve known Bruce to be straightforward and honest with me, never afraid to take my call, even when he knew he might not like what I had to say.

The complete and utter lies that have been launched against Bruce are reprehensible. We of rural Maine cannot reward Golden’s not-so-golden behavior. The best way to take the bad behaving Democrats to the woodshed is at the ballot box.

To be straight, this is not the time for disunity. The task is not complete. The President needs our support like never before and he needs that support to be unwavering because the DC swamp is relentless in their attacks against him.

Poliquin will give the President the support he needs. I’m asking all the Conservatives of the 2nd District to stand united once again for Freedom against leftist attacks. Send Bruce back to Washington!! He has my vote and I hope he will have yours.

Immovable Force

 

The tactics that have been utilized against gun owners have filtered over into every corner of the political realm. The Left is desperate to undo every gain that the voters of the United States have earned in the last two years. Any semblance of ties to the conventions of decency and honesty have been severed and the tactics of Everytown have been fully embraced throughout the media and Democrat Party.

What are Everytown tactics? The most famous or infamous is the gun violence/gun laws poll of Chicago done by Everytown for Gun Safety, toted by President Obama, and still inexplicable held as proof by Democrats that their gun laws reduce gun violence. Everytown started with the gun violence rates of Chicago alone before the implementation of strict gun laws, then factored in the gun violence rates of all of the rural farming communities of Illinois with Chicago’s violence rate, and, surprise, Chicago’s gun violence rate dropped dramatically when mixing in all the farming communities that had a violence by gun rate of zero.

This polling “study” was exposed eventually for fraud and Everytown was even called before Congress to answer for it; but still it is used by Democrats, which exposes the true purpose of polling data by the Left. Liberals no longer gather information to find the pulse and direction of the people. They formulate data to drive the direction and pulse of the people.

In elections past, liberals have used this tactic to depress conservatives from voting. Polling data would always appear showing enthusiasm among conservatives was not strong, the moral compass of the nation shifting, and liberals so enthusiastic. Election after election this tactic was used effectively to discourage the conservative vote

The polls always seemed so accurate because conservatives believed them and allowed themselves to despair of victory. The belief in polling is strengthened only because voters historically allowed themselves to be manipulated by them. In time, polling seemed almost prophetic and candidates whom the polls prophesied against trembled at their doom, at least, until last election.

Donald Trump didn’t give a rat’s hairy hindquarters about polling. He was all business and, what every businessman and politician wish they were, the ultimate showman. He laughed, mocked, scorned, and exposed all of the Left’s tactics.

So when the inevitable polling prophesied his defeat, he called them liars. His supporters fed off his enthusiasm and he, in turn, fed off theirs, and together they defeated the inevitable. But the job is not complete.

Again, the left is using Everytown style polling to try and put voters back in their place. To discourage the enthusiasm to take their government back, the Left will use every lying poll they can and voters must ignore them again, again, and again. Stand resolute to finish the task and support the President who is fighting for you.

It’s not enough to bask in the satisfaction of seeing the Left “get theirs.” Voters need to be the immovable force that stands like a breakwater against all the lies, rioting, threats, and false polling meant to dissuade the voter from going to the polls. This nothing more than little Johnny or Suzy throwing a tantrum because they are used to adults giving in just to quiet them and spare the embarrassment.

Liberals are used to manipulating exhausted Americans with tantrums. The noise may be exhausting, it may look insurmountable, and probably intimidating. It supposed to be. That’s the tactic.

Now is not the time for Americans to give back any ground. Giving an inch to Johnny only makes him worse in the next tantrum. Let’s be that immovable force, not give any ground, and prove them liars once again.

Cover Up??

An update to my article entitled “Different Reality, Different Neighborhood”. Local papers to this point have not published this article that was sent to them. I have contacted them several times with no response. My articles have been printed in past weeks but when this article which contains damming evidence to invalidate a Democrat’s candidacy, the Piscataquis Observer suddenly has chosen not to publish this information.(I have also sent this article to Bangor Daily and The Eastern Gazette)

I’m hoping this not an effort by the paper to run cover for the Democrat party. I’m hoping that, perhaps next week, the article will be run in the editorial section where my articles usually appear.  This is an issue that most be addressed.

The Town of Addison has Dr. Evans’ application for Homestead exemption on file stating that he indeed has applied for and received Homestead exemption in the Town of Addison. He must claim residency in the town he has exemption in. The town of Addison is in Washington County, not Piscataquis County, the county in which he is running for office.

The law requires that you must be a resident in the District you seek office for at least 90 days/3 months directly preceding the election. As a candidate, Dr. Evans would have to collect signatures and checks from voters in that District that he claims to reside in. Yet, he still claims Homestead Exemption and residency in a County and District that is hours away from the District he claims to want to represent.

He does own a home in Dover-Foxcroft and does have his mail sent there. But you cannot claim residency in two towns for two different purposes; one to receive tax exemption, the other to run for office. Which is it? You can’t have them both!
