Gov. Paul LePage is assinine to suggest today’s Republicans should be thanked by Rep. John Lewis and the NAACP.

Republicans are not at all like the party of Lincoln. LePage, Mitch McConnell, Donald Trump and many others should resign, because they only care about themselves, money and power. Democracy is under constant attack and our republic needs backbone now more than ever to survive the swing to this alternate right-wing party.
