What has that got to do with Maine seceding? I would have expected a more intelligent reply from you. You sound like a tory back in 1775, giving reasons why they could not secede.
Geez Louise ... can't you even keep up with the thread - LGBT? You were the 1 proudly beating your chest that ME separated from MA because MA went too far "left" back in the 19th century. You could have at least provided more info on the ME secession movement back then and currently - that was part of my intent of questioning you. And since the thread was about LGBT in MA/USA, I was hoping you would provide an insider's insight into the ME gubernatorial race and Michaud's chances. You still have time to respond in a civil manner, should you choose to tread the higher path.
