Are US taxpayers paying to defend maine from canadians?
There used to be a SAC (Strategic Air Command) base in the northern-most part of Maine. Loring Air Force Base. In the event of war with the Soviet Union, bombers carrying nukes would have been on there way to targets in the USSR.
That base is closed now.
Bath Iron Works makes destroyers and other ships for the Navy....located in southern Maine.
Brunswick Naval Air Station in southern Maine used to have P-3 anti-sub planes based there. It’s now closed.
Air National Guard base at Bangor International Airport....C-141 Starlifters and C-5A Galaxy aircraft based there.
The only reason Maine joined this lawsuit was because in the Blue Wave election last fall, Maine’s dem attorney general, Janet Mills, beat GOP businessman Shawn Moody, who ran a rather weak campaign, unfortunately.
The Maine House is controlled by democrats, and Maine has a new democrat attorney general because the party that controls the Maine House gets to pick the attorney general.
I doubt if most people in Maine support this stupid lawsuit.
Our previous governor, super-conservative Paul LePage, was term-limited out. He now lives in Florida but will return to Maine in the warm weather months. LePage has already said he wants to run in 2022, and people are already sending money for a campaign.
