Paul Turn Le(the)Page
Old people, especially Christians, don’t care if Maine collapses.
A friend told someone I know that they won’t sign my nomination petition yesterday. This person has known the family for decades. This person is an active Republican. They are powerful in their local stained glass fortress. They are all in for Turn Le(the)Page. I’m starting to hear the same refrain from everyone about my campaign. “He can’t win.” Uh huh.
These “Christians” don’t believe in democratic processes. They just want a King. And Turn Le(the)Page is that ruler. Trump says so. The RNC says so. Demi says so. Ellie says so. Josh says so. That makes it so. Money says so. The “Christian” civic league says so. Oh yea, polling probably says so also.
But you know what.
God doesn’t say so. I know that. I’ve been through too many campaigns to numb my brain to the TRUTH that every day is a new day in politics, as well as life. Shoot, every minute is a new one. God is the author of time as it passes. We ain’t.
I know almost nothing about Turn Le(the)Page’s political philosophy. I’ll learn about it when we debate. If he defeats me, and in the process convinces me he can lead Maine through the looming dark night of our souls, then I’ll endorse him after the primary. If he doesn’t then I’ll run against him as an Independent.
