The Maine Conservative Voice – One Trick Pony

Andy Torbett

Ah, to be young again. Why the nostalgia you ask? Is it the season, the holly and the berries? No, quite frankly, it’s the nuts, the fruitcakes and the bologna that has me wandering down memory lane. Specifically, I remember a trip as a boy to the fabled Santa’s Village in Jefferson, N.H. There I stood entranced by the jerk-stop ... Read More »

The Maine Conservative Voice – The Compassionate Tyrant

Andy Torbett

“Of all tyrannies, a tyranny sincerely exercised for the good of its victims may be the most oppressive. It would be better to live under robber barons than under omnipotent moral busybodies. The robber baron’s cruelty may sometimes sleep, his cupidity may at some point be satiated; but those who torment us for our own good will torment us without ... Read More »

The Maine Conservative Voice – Redunculous

Andy Torbett

No, it is not a spelling error…really. And, no, it’s not a word… yet. It’s just one of my specialty. A word coined to help find the appropriate emotion to attach to a situation. This, the latest of my installments to the Webster’s dictionary, is the combination of the words redundant and ridiculous. I did this all by myself. For ... Read More »

The Maine Conservative Voice – Pride and Accomplishment

Andy Torbett

When much ado and public pomposity ensues, there is usually a liberal behind it. So has been the case in the resurrection of the remnants of Roger Katz and the Pretentious Eight. Senator Katz has made his name and call to fame by publicly disparaging the Governor and undermining the efforts of the Republican Party to protect the people of ... Read More »

The Maine Conservative Voice – Why Can’t We Collar the Debt?

Andy Torbett

They are calling it “HatchetGate”.  No, it’s not the latest Stephen King horror flick.  It’s the latest assault on the Governor by the Democrats and their media allies.  Three newspapers, Lewiston Sun, Bangor Daily News and Maine Today Media, launched simultaneous attack pieces on the Governor based on nothing more than the gossip of disgruntled government employees; there are a ...

The Maine Conservative Voice – King Of The Mountain

Andy Torbett

It’s a mantra of sorts for some. It can be seen splashed across the backs of vehicles in the form of bumper stickers. Groups have formed across the Internet using the phrase as their rallying cry. The statement is “Not In Anybody’s Backyard”. The premise of that statement should give any lover of liberty pause. It assumes that if one ... Read More »

The Maine Conservative Voice – There’s Reality, Then There’s Democrats

Andy Torbett

Democrats have passed their first budget in four years and they’re positively giddy about it.  The celebratory swoon in Washington may have contributed to the collective swelling of the cranial area in the Democrat Party, for they often find so great pride in accomplishing what many Americans consider every day necessary tasks.  For this reason, thinking caps have been relegated ...

The Maine Conservative Voice – The Two Faces Of Dexter

Two Dexters

The Governor has experienced a partial victory in the battle over the hospital debt.  The Democrats have conceded that it is a good idea to pay back their debts.  In most circles, this would not be viewed as any great accomplishment, as most regard this declaration as everyday common sense.  But for the Justin Alfond Democrats, such a statement of ...
