April 15th in Augusta

Tax Day Tea Party 2010

Maine ReFounders/Paint Maine Red is again Joining forces with the group Maine Patriots to hold an Tax Day Tea Party at Capitol Park in Augusta from 3 PM till 7 PM. It is our intention to create a grassroots coalition of Americans and provide a platform to unite around a common goal of stopping the socialistic liberal agenda, seek out and support individuals with True Conservative Values, we are also here to let our officials know that RINO's are on the endangered species list here in Maine and will soon be extinct. If done properly, we will create the foundation and structure for rebuilding the conservative movement and restoring constitutional leadership to our State and Nation.

The Augusta Tax Day Tea Party 2009 was a huge success, almost 1000 fellow Mainers from over 163 towns showed up to tell our officials that we will be silent no
more. Lets make it 5,000 this year!!!

Our goal is simple keep the grassroots movement on fire. "We want to keep
Patriots excited and pumped up, we want them to continue to pound on the door of Congress and the White House."

Help wanted with many different tasks. We need people willing to man information and sign in tables, set up and clean up etc.. Also we need donations to cover insurance, porta potty's, flyer's and so on. Please donate today! Any amount will help. We also need help with providing Pocket Constitutions for everyone who attends. Please go to your local stores and talk to the owners, ask them if you can post a flier in there store And asked them for a donation of goods or services. We will be holding a raffle to help cover the cost of pocket constitutions and this event.

Please attend and donate a little time and money to make this bigger and better than the last one.

If anyone has any suggestions or talents that they would like to share please contact me.

If You are interested in speaking let me know. It is our intention to hold this event for WE THE PEOPLE! This is not going to be a campaign rally for candidates running in 2010. This event is all about the Constitution and letting our voices be heard. We will not be inviting any politicians or candidates to speak, as far as I am concerned if they wish to speak to we the people, they can come to us.

You can send me an e-mail at PaintMaineRed@gmail.com

Maine Tea Party movement... in BDN

An interesting piece on the tea party movement in Maine... with the requisite of bit of hatred and contempt from a local Democrat.

The Democrat responsible for that comment should be ashamed of themselves.

We are not predators...

There is a public hearing for An Act to Prevent Predatory Signature Gathering and Ensure a Clean Citizen Initiative and People's Veto Process (LD 1690) on Monday, February 8th @ 1pm in the Legal and Veterans Affairs, Room 437 in the State House.

This bill is Representative Seth Berry's response to LD 1495, Peoples Veto effort. Below is a summary of LD 1690 –

· This bill requires the Secretary of State to make electronic lists of certified signatures from petitions for direct initiatives of legislation and people's veto referenda beginning December 2010.

· The bill also extends the time period that a person has to examine petitions when challenging the decision of the Secretary of State from 5 to 10 days.

· The bill authorizes the Secretary of State to reject certification of signatures on a petition for a direct initiative of legislation or a people's veto if the person who signed the petition submits a written request to the direct initiative or people's veto applicant 15 days prior to the date when the petitions are due to the municipal clerk for verification.

· This bill also requires registration of organizations that receive compensation to collect or support the collection of signatures on petitions for a direct initiative of legislation or people's veto referendum.

Finally, this bill makes a technical clarification to the campaign finance and disclosure laws regarding ballot question committees.

The Link to the whole bill is: http://www.mainelegislature.org/legis/bills/bills_124th/billtexts/HP119101.asp

This bill is atrocious! We need to show up in droves to testify that we are not “predators”. It’s our constitutional right to have a people’s veto!

If you can’t make it to the hearing, please contact YOUR senator and representatives to encourage them to vote Ought Not to Pass on this bill!
