It’s exactly what they are…….
MAINE GOVERNOR REFUSES TO CALL THEM DEMOCRATS, CALLS THEM SOCIALISTS
“Politicians are supposed to represent the Maine people, not special interests, not lobbyists and not a foreign socialist ideology.”
Maine’s generous welfare policies have led the state to be swamped by hordes of Somalis and other welfare-seekers who have brought crime, drugs and gang warfare to the formerly safe state. And they have overloaded the state budget.
Governor Paul LePage has taken a populist stance, pushing back against liberal welfare demands and pushing hard for reform. Instead of delivering a State of the State address, he wrote an amazing letter blasting the legislature and calling for real change.
“As you know, I have chosen to forego the pomp and circumstance of a live speech so we can spend our time and energy on what truly matters: getting work done for the Maine people,” the governor wrote.
Refusing to call them Democrats, he instead blasted them as Socialists. He clearly wants to hang the Bernie Sanders campaign around the necks of the Democratic Party.
“For the last year, socialist politicians in Augusta have been dragging my Administration’s employees before a kangaroo court and plotting meaningless impeachment proceedings. While your colleagues were engaged in these silly public relations stunts, Mainers were literally dying on the streets…”
“That’s why I’m holding town hall meetings around the state until Election Day in November. The Maine people need to know that for five years we’ve been trying to convince the Legislature to move our state from poverty to prosperity…”
“First, it was liberal ideology. Now it’s socialism. The steadfast adherence to ideology above all else, including prosperity for the Maine people, has prevented opportunities for our state to succeed and grow…”
“The current ideology is far out of the mainstream and has failed miserably in countries around the world. The efforts by Maine socialists to turn our state into Greece, Cuba, Venezuela or the former Soviet Union are moving us backwards at a rapid pace. Socialism is blockading our path to prosperity. It’s time to put it aside and work toward prosperity for all Mainers.”
