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.

Emily Cain, Red Flannel Sweat, and the Dukakis Helmet

 

Those moments that define who we are. What we do means more than what we say. And you can’t pull that crap and get away with it in the 2nd District, Emily Cain.

Maybe its because Emily Cain has just returned from a wine tasting tour with Nancy Pelosi on the left coast of California to garner more campaign contributions from the Hollywood elites that has caused her to be unaware that it is blistering hot here in Maine right now. It must be the reason, because why else would someone decide to go out for a photo-op shooting lesson dressed in a thick red plaid flannel shirt, still sporting the fresh-outta-the-wrapper creases, layered under another spanking shiny new, did I mention thick, blaze orange hunting vest under the hot, yes very hot, August sun. If you noticed the awkward position of the “instructor” standing next to her, its probably because he’s trying to avoid stepping in the pool of sweat rippling around Ms. Cain’s most likely insulated L.L. Bean hunting boots, store tags in tow, gathering from the rivulets of perspiration coursing down her hypocritical person.

Obviously Ms. Cain is desperate to prove to the common sense voters of the 2nd District in Maine that she is one of them. Unfortunately for her, most Mainers know that no one in their right mind would go out on a sweltering hot August day to target shoot dressed to the flannel hilt for a bird hunt in October. There is humor here to be had for sure were it not for the condescending insult to the voters of CD 2.

No picture in a sweat drenched hunting outfit is going to convince voters of her love for guns when Emily Cain’s voting record screams otherwise. Furthermore her sudden stalwart defense of the “right to hunt” exposes her complete and indefensible disregard for the reasons for the 2nd Amendment. The first and foremost being a defense against a government that has lost an understanding and respect for the purpose of the Constitution and, therefore, has become a danger to the citizens. Hunting is way down the list.

While Ms. Cain should be reminded hunters wear multiple layers during hunting months of October and November because its cold, not in August to create a portable sauna, she should also be reminded that the Maine State Constitution takes the 2nd Amendment one step further by demanding that the Right to Keep and Bear Arms shall not be questioned. Once Ms. Cain has peeled off her soggy flannel propaganda attire, she’ll need to explain to the Maine residents why she has questioned that fundamental right on numerous occasions.

I suppose we should thank Emily Cain for interjecting some much needed comic relief into a election cycle that has been rife with despair. One cannot look at the heat shimmers emanating from the multi-layers of flannel campaign photog draped over Ms. Cain’s shoulders and not have it invoke images of Michael Dukakis… and an army helmet he should never have put on.

Rep. Poliquin Acts to Stop Outrageous Government Intrusion of Personal Emails

Rep. Poliquin Acts to Stop Outrageous Government Intrusion of Personal Emails

As an original cosponsor, Rep. Poliquin today will vote for the Email Privacy Act in the House

 

WASHINGTON – Today, Maine’s 2nd District Congressman, Bruce Poliquin, released the following statement on the House’s vote on the Email Privacy Act, of which he is an original cosponsor:

 

“It is absolutely outrageous and unbelievable that the federal government has the legal authority to invade the privacy of millions of Americans by reading and storing our emails without any warrant,” said Congressman Poliquin. “The current law allowing for emails older than 180 days to be accessed without a warrant by the feds is outdated and intrusive.  Today, I am voting to fix this outrageous invasion of our privacy.”

Rep. Poliquin Demands House Vote on Heroin Legislation

 

Poliquin calls on Speaker Ryan to bring heroin legislation to House Floor

 

WASHINGTON – Maine’s Second District Congressman, Bruce Poliquin, sent a letter to Speaker of the House Paul Ryan urging him to bring the Comprehensive Addiction and Recovery Act (CARA), a bill that will provide critical resources to Maine to combat the growing heroin epidemic in our State, to the House Floor for a vote.  The Senate passed the bill earlier this month.

 

In the letter, Congressman Poliquin writes:

 

“One of the most serious problems impacting Maine and America is the heroin and opioid epidemic that is taking the lives of hundreds people and causing unthinkable harm to our families, friends and communities,” writes Congressman Poliquin.

 

“It is now time for the House to act so that we can pass this crucial legislation and send it to the President’s desk for signature. Doing so will boost the efforts of our Maine families to better help their addicted loved ones with the treatment and long-term recovery to live drug-free and healthy lives.”

 

Since joining Congress, Poliquin has made it a top priority to use the full-weight of his Congressional Office to combat the growing heroin epidemic crippling Maine, including serving as an original cosponsor to the Cradle Act, a bill that would help the nearly 1,000 babies born addicted to heroin in Maine each year.  Congressman Poliquin is also a founding member of the Bipartisan Task Force to Combat the Heroin Epidemic, a Congressional body that aims to develop best practices and foster interagency collaboration to address this growing epidemic.

The following is the full text of Congressman Poliquin’s letter to Speaker Ryan:

 

March 25, 2016

 

The Honorable Paul Ryan

Speaker of the House of Representatives

House of Representatives

Washington, D.C. 20515

 

Dear Speaker Ryan,

 

I write to urge you to bring H.R. 953, the Comprehensive Addiction and Recovery Act (CARA) to the House floor for a vote.  One of the most serious problems impacting Maine and America is the heroin and opioid epidemic that is taking the lives of hundreds people and causing unthinkable harm to our families, friends and communities.

 

This important bipartisan legislation was introduced by Congressman Jim Sensenbrenner and would provide emergency federal funding and other needed resources for Maine, along with a number of other states that are in desperate need to curtail this drug epidemic. As our law enforcement agencies, treatment centers, social service networks and families work together to curb this dangerous and deadly drug problem, this legislation would provide critical steps to help end this tragedy. It would establish a comprehensive and coordinated approach through enhanced grant programs that would expand prevention and education efforts while also promoting treatment and recovery.

 

The Senate passed its version of the CARA Act on March 10, 2016 by a vote of 94-1. It is now time for the House to act so that we can pass this crucial legislation and send it to the President’s desk for signature. Doing so will boost the efforts of our Maine families to better help their addicted loved ones with the treatment and long-term recovery to live drug-free and healthy lives.

 

Again, I urge you to bring the CARA Act to the House floor. On behalf of all the Maine victims of this terrible and heartbreaking epidemic, I thank you for your consideration of this request.

 

Thank you,
