I went to work at 11 years old. I became governor. It's not a big deal. Work doesn't hurt anybody. I'm all for not allowing a 12-year-old to work 40 hours. But a 12-year-old working eight to 10 hours a week or a 14-year-old working 12 to 15 hours a week is not bad.

Paul LePage
Too many Mainers are dependent on government handouts. Government dependency has not - and never will - create prosperity.
Paul LePage

Paul LePage

Paul LePage
Am I perfect? No. Do I want to be perfect? No, because if I were perfect, I would be a reporter.
Paul LePage
What I'm trying to say is the Holocaust was a horrific crime against humanity and frankly, I would never want to see that repeated.
