Republican leaders are leaving the Republican party

See also

Republican leaders in the state of Maine are joining the growing number of Americans who are becoming disillusioned and even angry with US Republican politicians.

The Bangor Daily News acquired a letter written by 13 Republican leaders from the state of Maine that read,

We can no longer associate ourselves with a political party that goes out of its way to continually restrict our freedoms and liberties as well as reaching deeper and deeper into our wallets.

The Republicans that resigned are unhappy with the GOP for many reasons.

A couple of the many items pointed out in the letter are the refusal of Republican politicians to reign in the NSA, and refusing to reign in military and defense contractors.

Instead, most Republican politicians favor spending even more of the public's money for an already bloated defense budget. This practice is financially crippling the United States and the American people.

The Last Straw

The final driving factor that drove the 13 Maine Republican leaders to dump the Republican party, was Republican Governor Paul LePage’s veto regarding the Raw Milk bill.

The raw milk bill would have given the citizens of Maine the freedom to purchase raw milk.

Governor LePage ignored the people’s voices. In addition, Governor LePage ignored smaller businesses that wanted the freedom to sell raw milk. Click here for details.

In a nut shell, Republican Governor LePage protected corporate greed, while ensuring Agricultural special interest groups continue donating to his campaign fund.

Republican Leaders Need Ethical Patriotic Lessons

It’s time for all Republican leaders to start protecting individual liberties and freedoms. The land of the free is not just about supporting corporate freedom to maximize corporate profits.
