Dear Sir
Re: Governor Paul Lepage R
I have written several leaders condemning the Republican Government in Augusta, my reason have been stated several times in letters to the editor, op-ed’s in independent media; in order to move forward we need leadership for a whole state not ¾ nor does the state end when you leave Augusta heading north, this attitude in state government needs to end immediately, not tomorrow, not next month right now. I have lived here in the State of Maine now for eighteen years, I have seen a republican governor, a democratic governor and now we have Paul Lepage. Both parties on both sides of the isle have made the wrong moves and miss-steps, and at times wrong doing by both parties, especially now with the Republican Government in Augusta, Aroostook County and most rural area’s of Maine get only the scraps from Paul Le Page’s table in Augusta.
In retrospect to this writer Paul Le Page and the Republican Government are a mockery of leadership, I feel how ever extremely offended by this pig that call’s him self governor, a governor who claims a rags to riches story which is total bull example by his actions over the last four months; yet to this writer it seems that this government and this governor seem to think of people in rural Maine are nothing but rural white trash excluding those who are members of the Republican Party whom believe their lies and that we are drug dealers and users, that we have turned welfare into a state of life. Now this government and this governor call for welfare reform and drug testing for those on it.
A monk said in a time they called the dark ages and I quote” the saddest of all deaths is the end of hope” Pelagius 492 AD were not on welfare or disability because were lazy, drug users or any thing else, some like me have disibility’s and major health problems some of us are because of age and some are physically and mentally disabled. The other cause is job outsourcing manufacturing and building areas closed and sent over seas, because people will not work for an unfair wage, companies hire in Maine unregistered and undocumented foreign workers who work for penny’s on the dollar and no bennifits. No work equals - no hope, northern Maine has been left in the Stone Age while southern Maine moves to a new century. Yes the country is mainly agricultural and lumber industry, good leadership years ago with an eye to the future would have started them in nineteen-ninety or earlier toward the road to future.
We the people, the homeless, the poor, the displaced worker, industries destroyed by federal folly, we not asking for Paul Le pages removal and the Republican Government and the Tea Party conspirators, we demand it!!!!, we call upon the state legislature to remove this government and this Governor and all appointed by him from Augusta.
Sincerely Yours
