Maine Needs Independents VS The Maine State Inc Politcal Oligarchy !




The viability and constitutionality of Maine's centrally managed economy, which I have called Maine State Inc- is perpetually kept out of the political dialogue by politicians and the Maine media alike, but these programs serve the interests of the few at the expense of the many. All of the candidates in the gubernatorial race are co-conspirators in "targeted sector economics". The last accountability on Maine's "economic development" programs was in 2006 which concluded that there was no evidence that these programs create jobs and that they do invite corruption. See Pine Tree Watch Dog article http://pinetreewatchdog.org/tax-break-deals-studied-and-studied-but-questions-remain-unresolved.

If Independent candidates emerge taking on the issue of Maine State Inc, all of their opposition will be part of the singular force of the political oligarchy, which has intentionally excluded discussion and awareness of these programs from public dialogue.

More than ever we need this topic to be a part of our state dialogue. A candidate running on this issue will be taking on the odds as he/she takes this subject out of the darkness where only the political elite know what is going on and into the light of public awareness.

I have heard rumblings across the state in places like Franklin and Washington Counties that people do not feel they are being served by the political establishment. The entire retail sector, which includes all of Main Street is excluded from benefits and services one of central managements primary "instrumentalities of the state" - The Department of Economic and Community Development - but when ever the state is looking for revenue they hit on the retail sector. Central economic management has two sectors- those who are taxed but not represented and those who are represented and not taxed. The former group is larger and if it can be mobilized can be a major factor in state elections.

Now is the Time to Come to The Aid Of the People!

The Freedom of Access Act does not require that public information be posted online in any particular format, just that public records be made available.

An Incomplete Theory of Inflation Made to Order for Mass Consumption.

M oney is not what it used to be, so must our ways of thinking about it adapt. jaakko-kemppainen-unsplash The message treads across the media terrain, beating louder and louder as if to drown out the beat of the distant drummer. W arning! The only thing the stimulus will stimulate is inflation. The people will pay as the wealthy elite invests their windfalls in financial assets. Doom and gloom set to march across the land to the beat of the distribution of stimulus funds. In recent years as past predictions of fiscal disaster following stimulus spending failed to materialize and so the thinking about national debt and deficits has evolved, most noticeably with the development of  Modern Monetary Theory . In the   fall of 2020,  National Affairs  published a story,  Does the Debt Matter ? by Peter Wehner & Ian Tufts. Peter Wehner is vice president and senior fellow at the Ethics and Public Policy Center and served in the last three Republican administrations. Ian Tufts is a recent g

Its Not the Economy, Its the Culture!

Trump has brought into focus a long brewing social crisis SELECTED FOR THE BEST OF TREMR darren-deloach-unsplash I was a Republican, until the 2016 convention when a petition gathered enough signatures to let delegates vote their conscience, and was promptly dismissed by a voice vote.  That was when I first became aware that the Republican party was afraid, intimidated and dominated by the Trump base. I felt the party took the traditional base of the party, which included myself, for granted, as if we were party players, guaranteed to support the party, unquestionably, no matter where it went. Deeply ro o ted party obedience has been established. Many whom I once respected and are no longer recognizable. Those of us who did not follow the leaders no longer have a place in the Republican party and have largely become Independents. I voted straight blue in the last election, but consider myself Independent. There is no reason to believe that either one party or the other will continue to
