Being shot puts NaPier on his political path

By DAVID HENCH, Staff Writer

Thursday, October 19, 2006

Take a look at where the candidates stand on various issues.

Phillip Morris NaPier says the defining moment in his political career was getting shot in the backside by a Windham police officer in 1995.
His positions in his independent bid for governor aren't exactly mainstream either.

A convicted felon, he encourages ex-convicts to move to Maine and vote for him as a path to a governor's pardon. He says police should not carry guns and that people sent to prison should do 30 days in maximum security then six months of military boot camp. And 16-year-olds should be allowed to vote.

He is a walking advertisement for why police officers should have more and better marksmanship training. the felons as a voting block? Hmm. I wonder what else they'd vote for?

PS: So far he seems to be for law enforcement a la' the UK.

I like his [url=http://www.phillipmorrisnapier.com/platform.htm]objectives[/url] on taxes (drop the income tax and raise the sales tax) and making governmental employees more accountable for their job performace, but the rest of his platform is nutty. He doesn't give many details on his prison reform plan, so I'm not sure if I'd agree with them or not. Probably not, though.

The Press Herald were a bunch of jerks in that article. Especially at the end when they quoted some Baldacci's supporter's opinion of Napier, like I would care what some tax and spend liberal thinks.

What is your fascination with this guy? Do you think he is cute, too?

I'm glad the Press Herald spelled out Mr. Napier's background in detail.

I also agree that he is simply a distraction. In most states, fringe candidates are ignored.

Maybe I am twisted because it seems I am the only one that noticed it. But doesn't strike you all as amusing that he decided to go into politics because he got shot in the ass? There has to be a joke in there somewhere.
How about:
"A politician motivated by the seat of his pants"
or
"A Governor who won't sit down on the Job"
or
"A Governor who will lead from behind"

I am sorry fo taking a serious political discussion down to frat house humor, but I just couldn't resist it was just lying there, I had to pick it up.

Fringe - that's puting it lightly.

I totally agree - this guy should just be ignored.

If he had an ounce of tact, he may be taken semi-seriously. But he doesn't. He thinks by making an ass (excuse the pun) of himself he'll gain exposure and then votes. :roll:

On his radio interview today, he just kept stating that we would be better off if everyone starting treating each other with respect and kindness. I always assumed that by doing that, one had to refrain from committing felonies.

:shock: You know now is not the time to complain about fringe candidates because
all who support the concept of "politcal pigs at the trough of clean funds"
should have realized the fringe is going to be longer with or w/out funds.

Now , based on his responce to one enviromental question in Portland debate,
"I don't have a clue as to what you are talking about", introduces the
possibility that he might be the most honest candidate running this year! :lol:
