Maine has a Republican Party?
If it wasn't for that, you'd be losing population.
We in NH are going to overtake you in population some time this year. Maybe your productive citizens are moving here.
That's very true. The sooner we face that fact, the better. I hope this guy is successful in helping the GOP win.
I will try to meet him shortly. I will give Free Republic
an update. After reading the article, I am afraid I am not
optimistic. I see another wishy-washy RINO. But time will tell.
He knows that the problem with the Republican Party is that it is perceived to be out of touch with the average working class American. They are perceived to be the party of big business. Yet the Republicans have better policies for the working class Americans.
Second point is that the Democrats present their message far better than the Republicans. Yes Democrats lie and lie some more. Yes the media gives them cover. But they are able to put two sentences together and they do take their message to the people.
The Republican Party needs to get back to the basics and stay in touch with the people. Reinforce that Government is not the solution. That YOU can make better decisions for yourself than some government official in a distant city. It is about individual freedom NOT collective rights.
