    Hence this is the whole crux of the discussion if the US Govn. doesn't have any law on the Books nor does the US Const. or the Bill of Rights state anywhere on who and how we are to be married then why are we even having these items brought to vote.

    The paperwork that you filled out was for a marriage lisc Scorp, and likely there was a Notary on hand to finish the deal for you.

    There is no waiting period, so if the town hall had a notary on hand, you could have been all done, spit spot, with no hassles.


    ps - I was a notary and performed a ceremony at that stone church in downtown portland, next to PHS

    Not everywhere was marriage a religious practice you might want to go and do some research on this.

    It was mostly a religious ceremony, however. Aggregated over the whole you'd see it more a ward of the Church instead of the State.

    Ahh but it was a contract what it was a civil lisc. that we both payed a fee for and yes we had a Notary sign off on it for tax reasons.

    I think it's you who don't know your history.

    You really buy into this "The North went to war with the South to free the slaves" crap? If that so, why slavery was legal in the North up until the END of the war?

    No, your civil war was about the piss-poor Nothern states denying the rich and abundant in labour Southern states their rights to leave the union. You see, without the South the North was destined to struggle for decades to come, and the North didn't like the prospect.

    HAHAH, no the opposite. Slavery, first off, was made illegal in many of the northern States. Which is why slaves would sometimes run to these northern states to escape slavery. Secondly, it was the South which would have encountered more economic ruin than the industrialized North. Slavery was initially allowed when the Constitution was first conceived to promote a compromise between the North and South to solidify the nation. Built in was time removal for the slave trade and eventually pressure built internationally for the ending of slavery as an institution in general.

Why isn't Maine a Republican state? Why has Maine been a solid Democrat/Liberal state since the 80s? You seem to make it a point to always want to speak speak from an argument of authority. Like you have some sort of sociology degree on Maine citizens. Or like you know somebody is good at something because you saw them in a magazine. I suggest you change your tone. It's called an argumentum ad verecundiam.
    Yes they are getting older do you live in Maine??? Over the past 10 Years the Population of Maine has been getting smaller. In 2000 we had around 1.6 Million Living in the State we are now down to around 1.2 Million and of these over 45% of them are over the age of 45. The highest # of folks leaving and not returning are the age groups between 18-25. Maine Ranks in the top 10% of folks entering the US Military per popultaion, also for per population Maine is one of the highest in folks under the age of 30 moving and never returning to the State.

    Maine is a republican State if you take out Portland and Lewiston-Auburn Population between then they make up 1/3 of the States Population and are the two biggest Blue area in the State.

    Hmm a Blue State since the 80s really let see 1980 went for Mr. Reagan 1984 went again for Mr. Reagan in 1988 went for Mr. Bush Sr. in 1992 went for Mr. Perot in 1996 went for Mr. Clinton in 2000 split down the middle for both Mr. Bush and Mr. Gore in 2004 it went for Mr. Bush Jr. barely and in 2008 for Mr. Obama.
