Government Must Preserve and Defend the Sacred Freedoms of All Individuals
What is government but a collection of individuals working together to manage the affairs of a larger population? As individuals, each government worker has a choice.

Part 1 of the Gray Republican Committee's event:
"The Immigration Crisis at the Southern Border"
May 8, 2019 ~ Gray, Maine
In the flurry of opinions about immigration, border walls, compassion for immigrants and their children, economics, and an influx of crime, there is a larger, more urgent, and civilization-changing crisis: the real probability that open-borders immigration would destroy American sovereignty and exceptionalism.
Open-Borders Immigration Would Destroy American Sovereignty and Exceptionalism

Identity Politics is a Revenge-Driven Tragedy That Will Make the Whole World Blind
In Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr’s book Strength to Love, he wrote:
Returning hate for hate multiplies hate, adding deeper darkness to a night already devoid of stars. Darkness cannot drive out darkness; only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate, only love can do that.
The healing of the human race requires an adjustment in the values of humanity. When love becomes the most valuable thing of all, then we do indeed have hope to abandon the revenge-driven tragedy of identity politics.
Save Maine’s Voice and Vote No on NPV (National Public Vote)
I wonder if people behind this movement have ever studied how our government was founded. Do they realize that we are a Republic, not a Democracy? Do they know that the Founding Fathers realized that states with lower populations need a way to have a voice in federal government and that the Electoral College is a way to guarantee that?

Freedom of Silence: De Tocqueville Was Right
~ a poem
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.
