When southern states get attacked for racism, I defend them. I've never once lumped all people into an ignorant stereotype. And I really don't expect to be lumped. There are plenty of Mainers on this board, none of whom are America hating hippies. Grow up.
RonPaul could win Maine because Maine doesn't love Mitt Romney (so much for us being a bunch of America hating hippies). Check out ME's Dirigo Plan, and see how screwed up our health insurance is in ME.
Maine likes independents. If nothing else comnes along, this state goes Democrat because of the New England influence. But each county is unique. You'll find many conservatives here. Just not in the Portland area (like any other state's largest city).
