In two weeks Maine residents will go to the poles to vote for a governor to represent the state.  


Maine, like the rest of the country, has a loud Tea Party contingent that represents about thirty percent of the voting population.   


During the last gubernatorial election the Democratic vote was split between the Democrat and Independent candidates; resulting in the election of the Tea Party Republican Paul (Pepe’) LePage.  


Thus, Paul LePage squeaked by and Maine ended up with a moron (perfectly acceptable in the Republican Party) as governor.


This year the same scenario exist with the possibility of the same outcome.

  1. Here in Belgium it's not that different. People vote mainly for parties that will harm them in the long run.

  2. Doesn't sound to different from the way Canada ended up with Stephen Harper as PM. There's no such thing as a 30% majority.

    One of the biggest problems I see is that the left always disagrees with itself over minor matters while the right is too dumb to notice any contradictions.


COMMENT: Ben Franklin said, "I imagine a man must have a good deal of vanity who believes, and a good deal of boldness who affirms, that all doctrines he holds are true, and all he rejects are false."
