People of Good Will Have Moved Beyond State and National Politics
Yesterday was familiar. I donned my suit and tie and forced myself to enter authoritarianism central, the headquarters of the communist revolution in Maine. It was day one of 2022’s legislative session.
We used to know it as the State House. We used to think of it as the headquarters of our constitutional republic.
NOBODY believes that about the State House and the “public” hearings and deal making anymore.
The evidence is everywhere you look.
Yesterday’s specific evidence was the failure of Maine’s most dynamic political phenomenon to get more than a dozen Maine citizens of good will to show up for a rally. They call themselves the medical freedom movement. They are actually the most politically powerful grassroots movement in the history of Maine. They just don’t know it yet. Unfortunately.
In true Stockholm Syndrome fashion Maine Stands Up is employing the tactics of their enemy and expecting positive political change. They are missing the most important revelation of the Trump presidency.
He was an angry American man who tweeted in a suit. In a way it’s not his fault he was rich. His materialism will probably end his political career, unfortunately. He did, and continues to do, much good for the world.
The political leaders of America’s future will come from the local working class. That’s clear.
The failure of Maine Stands Up to make their rally a success isn’t their fault. Their people don’t have time for more masked rallies in Maine’s politburo. They’re too busy working in school boards, town councils and local assemblies to waste it in Augusta. They have their families, jobs, small businesses and villages to save now. They’ve figured out that the Maine Legislature is a waste of their time.
Good for them.
Good for Maine.
Good for U.S.
