    Countdown to a Historic Vote on Issues 2 & 3 in Ohio

    11/01/2011

    On Tuesday, Ohioans will go to the polls to vote on two of the most important ballot issues in state history. Issue 2 is a fight for fiscal solvency through common sense public sector pension reforms, while Issue 3 would outlaw Obamacare's individual mandate.

    Both issues have enormous implications in Ohio and nationwide, and every YES vote is crucial to their passage. Every voter must remember to vote YES on Issues 2 & 3 next Tuesday, November 8th.

    The consequences of failure for these issues would be nothing short of catastrophic for Ohio's struggling economy. Without the reforms made possible by Issue 2, school districts and local governments statewide are facing massive deficits that will inevitably result in higher taxes for residents.

    How massive?

    Across Cuyahoga County's thirty school districts, the average deficit projected by the Ohio Department of Education comes to $799.00 for every single resident of the county by 2015. In Franklin County that number is $537.87, and in Hamilton it's $669.00. The list goes on and on.

    All told, 85 of Ohio's 88 counties are projected to face school district deficits, but Ohioans don't have to settle for this bankrupt status quo. The way to balance local budgets and avoid tax hikes is to vote in favor of pension reform. The journey back to solvency and prosperity starts with a YES vote on Issue 2 next Tuesday, November 8th.

    Ohio's future depends on it.

    I was a lone tea party member long before the present day tea party was born. Probably before the birth of Glenn Beck. In 1960 I began studting the communist conspiracy throughout the world, along with Fabian British Socialist Society, the Bildebergs, and all their unions, subversive activities, etc. In 1962 I bean writing Letters to the Editors. some 300 all total, of about 100 were published. I was often called a conspiracy nut or something worse, even by Rush Limbaugh. I tried to warn people about what was coming in the future, and I would say that about half of it has come to pass. Enough, whereby, many who thought I was a nut have come to me and said, "You were right!" I said that we are about half why there, meaning total and complete communism. We're beginning to see more and more demonstrations and riots lead by ignorant communist dupes. yet to come is guerrilla warfare and insurection. So every patriotic American had better arm themselves for the inevitable. When I first began writing letters back in 1962, I signed a number of the, "Don't Tread On Me." Since editors allowed me only a certain number of words, I had to drop the Don't Tread On Me so has to be able to get all my information into a letter. At that time we didn't have home computers as we now do, so as to reach out to people far and wide. I like this. I'm now 81 yrs old. I'm a retired army veterian of WW II and the Korean War, having first joined the service at age 15. I was a policeman for 18 years, and an investigator for the Ohio BMV for 15 years. I was also a private detective for 3 years. When I was a cop I educated several young men about the communist conspiracy. With the aid of the FBI they joined a communist front in cleveland, Ohio. Unfortunately, I can't say anything more than that. It was fun knowing months in advance what the communist intended to do. At the time, the FBI was forbidden to investigate any organizations for any kind of subversion, so my young men volunteeraly wrote reports which the FBI were allowed to accept, but could do nothing with the information. In the long run, down came the towers. History will prove that communsits are behind the muslum movement. They pull the strings. Have you noticed that Obama holds his chin up just as did Hitler and Musolini when giving speeches. Also, did you notice that the soldiers of Germany and Italy and communist Russia, and other communist countries, and muslum countries, all march is goose step. I call it Satans march step. Welll, I guess this is enought for my first inriduction. Glad to be here!
