What happened? Barack Obama happened. The blue dog Democrats of Maine wanted to see government that put the needs of average folks first. That was not happening with Barack Obama at the helm.
In 2010, one outspoken candidate, Paul LePage of Lewiston, ran in the Republican primary. He was bold, he was blunt, he was the proto-Trump, outspoken against corruption and government waste, as well as the destruction of our culture
The winning never ends!
Notice that the first day that Governor LePage was in office, he issued clear directives to all law enforcement officers, the county sheriffs in particular, that they had to comply with federal law. No illegal aliens would be allow to remain in the United States, free from federal detainment and deportation.
Incredible! Of course, notice that the press did not cover this necessary order. At the time, January 2011, the country was just getting revved up to take back the country little by little from the corrupt Barack Obama and his Democratic Party cronies.
Republicans are gaining ground like never before in a state which hadn't gone Republican since 1988. For the first time in nearly 30 years, the Republican Presidential candidate picked up one electoral vote. That was also the first time in the state's history that the electoral tally was split because of the Congressional proportional representation at work in the state.
This is just great!
I am so glad to see executives putting the needs of Americans, their own citizens, ahead of illegal aliens, and ensuring the public safety of all within their jurisdictions! This letter is especially impressive because the Governor lays down the law clearly and firmly, and even asserts the right to remove lawless, wayward sheriffs who refuse to comply with federal immigration laws!
We could really use a leader like that in California and all over the country.
And if anyone has a problem with that ...
