Maine GOP adopts tea party platform

The under-the-radar takeover of local GOP organizations by tea partyers has not been limited to Utah. The Republican Party of Maine, home to the GOP's two most moderate senators, has adopted a new platform with planks and rhetoric ripped from the tea party movement and the Ron Paul revolution. Read it below the fold. Among the planks are:

- Return to the principles of Austrian Economics, and redirect the economy back to one of incentives to save and invest.

- Discard political correctness, make public the declaration of war (Jihad), made against the U.S. on 23 Feb 1998, and fight the war against the United States by radical Islam to win.

- Defeat Cap and Trade, investigate collusion between government and industry in the global-warming myth, and prosecute any illegal collusion.
