As I look over the Maine State Republican Party Platform I can't help but wonder...is it obsolete? Does it really mean anything to have any debate about what should be in the party platform if so many of "our" elected officials regularly ignore the principles outlined in it? One can look at the votes of many Republicans in Augusta and wonder, who exactly do they represent? What are their REAL ideals that the stand by? Perhaps it would be good for all elected Republicans to take the time to read through the platform and remind themselves of what the grass roots members of the party beleive should be the principles of the party to follow.
