BIRTH OF MAINE'S BOUND DELEGATES
FLASHBACK: August 28th 2012 Tampa, Florida: The following transcript is from a meeting of the RNC Rules Committee that took place on the 2nd day of the 2012 Republican National Convention prior to the now infamous and highly controversial floor vote and Maine's duly elected delegates walking off the floor in protest.
BILL PAULSEN (Minnesota): ...With this compromise language, we will pass 16(a)(1), which will require without regard to state party rules that all states-- that all delegates be bound....
CHAIRMAN SUNUNU: Thank you, sir. Mr. Barbour, you have the final presentation on this motion.
This is hilarious for CNN - especially at the end with A Cooper.
I am surprised, disappointed and yes shocked that an incident of this magnitude did not make for front page news on the DP. O yes, here was one thread. When I finally got here I noticed the front page threads were so trivial in comparison. Who makes these choices?
I spent most of yesterday learning about, reading, watching videos and thinking about this horrible brutality of law enforcement in Los Angeles. The before and after pictures of Kelly Thomas almost too horrible to look at. Has anyone here seen them?
As a result of the verdict, Dan Hughes, Fullerton's Chief of Police, has the following comment:
"We respect the jury's verdict, and appreciate the consideration the jury gave to the evidence. We understand that there may be a wide variety of reactions to the verdict and encourage anybody who wishes to express their feelings to do so respectfully.
Maine joined Connecticut this week as the second state in the nation to sign a genetically modified food labeling law, but you may not have heard much about it because the mainstream media hasn’t really said anything about it.
Do a basic news engine search and you’ll see that no mainstream media outlets have reported anything on this story. In fact, at the time of writing this, the most I could find was Washington Post Blog and Grist (with a ridiculously biased title).
For those who don't know me, my name is Eric Brakey and I was the Maine State Director for the 2012 Ron Paul Presidential Campaign. Now, I am running for Maine State Senate in a very competitive and very winnable seat.
I just wanted to share some great news with you all from the campaign trail. Ten months ahead of the November 2014 elections, our campaign is shattering fundraising record in the state due to the financial support of grassroots liberty activists and donors.

Unofficial Ron Paul HQ of Mount Desert Island (Maine) Burns
I am sad to report that on Dec. 4, 2013, the freedom outpost of Mount Desert Island burned to the ground. In a land of Obama sticker-clad Subarus, Cap’n Nemo’s was an oasis for freedom lovers to enjoy colossal beers, fresh seafood and the company of colorful sea captains and other locals.

Here is the ratings of the Representatives from GOA on the 2nd Amendment:
At issue is the reauthorization of the 1988 Plastic Gun Ban.
It is being drafted now.
It will be posted at 6 PM.
GOA will have it up as soon as it is posted.
You can still contact your CONgress people and tell them you oppose the Schumer Gun Ban.

I was getting the books out of my locker in high school and the announcement that JFK had been shot came over the PA speakers.
It was the Principal announcing that JFK had been shot in Dallas.
Anyway, suddenly it got very, very quiet. No one spoke. It was SO quiet. And then people started crying. It was such an emotional moment for those who understood - probably the older crowd then, but nevertheless it was really something to behold.
