Free to speak, but not to dissent,
Lest the ravages of popular ire draw.
Loathsome revenge by hurled epithet;
Grinds thinkers to cud in its maw.
Good-hearted Liberals are #WalkingAway
An excellent article by Kira Davis:
"Progressives Are Determined To Make Conservatives Out of Perfectly Fine Liberals"
"The progressive left should be very careful. Look to Dave Rubin for what can happen to a person’s mindset when they are constantly and unfairly admonished for having independent thoughts. The space to the right of center is filled with people just like Rubin. I am one of them."
Ben Shapiro's 10 Reasons to Vote Republican in November
~ This is a MUST, MUST watch video

He has an exemplary judiciary temperament that the founding fathers would have taken great pride in, and he is exactly the kind of person Americans can trust to interpret the Constitution based on the letter of the law, and protect the rights of all Americans. Kavanaugh is the exact type of constitutional jurist Trump promised to nominate. Promises made, promises kept.
The Portland Press Herald Got it Wrong on the Crowdfunding “Bribe” of Senator Collins
The Portland Press Herald recent editorial on Senator Collins missed the mark. The Editorial board wrote, “A crowdfunding campaign sends the same message that wealthy donors deliver via PACs,” comparing campaign donations and legitimate political operations to this crowdfunding threat, citing it to be a First Amendment Right.
Letter to the Editor on Ellie Espling
The Honorable Ellie Espling is a powerful candidate for the Maine Senate and I hope that people support her bid for Senate the way that she has supported the people of her Maine House District.
