As my first post as moderator, I ask all of you to get out tomorrow and vote!
You all may have noticed I pretty much keep out of political stuff, but I do have my opinions, and if you disagree...fine by me, we can still share a drink. That being said I will voice how I feel on two of the questions....
The gay marriage one.... I have no problem with what other people do. But, ya know...when the blacks wanted equality they didn't ask to be called white. I don't feel the gays should be called married. I am voting "yes", which means they cannot marry in Maine. If they called it a "civil union" or "a partnership", I'd probably vote for them, but the word marriage is for one man and one woman.
The other is the excise tax on cars. I hate that tax! PA doesn't have it at all, BUT...they are not asking us to repeal the tax, they are asking that brand new cars, and hybrids don't have to pay. In other words, the people with money that can afford the tax, don't have to pay it! Voting this change in will not change the tax on older cars at all. It's It's like they are leaning on the poor for all the road tax! I will be voting against the change.
Feel free to step up and spout off... this is the Maine forum. We can talk about them folks from away & they can't hear us....can they?
