Last night Ohio screamed out loud not just to Republicans here, but all over the country. It was a defeat for the Republican whores who wanted to line their pockets on the backs of the middle-class. For almost a year now, Kasich thought he was in control. So much so that he lied about Issue 2 [SB5]. He blamed the budget deficit on working people. They are greedy, selfish, and lazy people. Like all Republicans, they refuse to take any blame for the troubles.
This was not in truth an issue of Democrats versus Republicans. It was about what was right and what was wrong. Public workers should not be the scapegoats for economic problems. This defeat is stunning in the regard that even Republicans were against it. 69% voted against, and they weren’t all Democrats. Kasich still didn’t listen. He lied to his own party. He did not do it alone. He had help from his pimps, the Republican National Committee and the Columbus Dispatch. They both told the same lies over and over again. Kasich like all Republican governors and legislators became appeasers.
An appeaser is one who feeds the crocodile hoping he will be the last man eaten. Winston Churchill
The Republican National Committee, Republican fascist, racist governors and legislators thought they spoke for the people, bestowing rights on them they already had. They want to exclude all of us and deny us our rights and freedoms, while at the same time saying they are giving them to us.
The arrogance of these Republicans. They tried to steal from the working man. They will continue to do so unless we stop as we did in Ohio. They want to cut Medicare and Medicaid. They call the “entitlements“. Entitlements my left foot. I paid into it as did my employer. The government does not just give it me. I paid into it. It is my money and I want it. They make it sound as if it is a gift given to the people from government. It is not!!!! I am not to blame for their borrowing money from me. I am not responsible for the government not paying that money back. The money is mine and I intend to get as much as I paid into it back.
The fact is that Issue 2 here was a fight by Republicans against so-called “entitlements”. Real people pay into pensions, Social Security, Medicare and Medicaid. They worked for it and paid for it, and are owed it. Not as a gift but as a right. Think of the interest owed on the load from social security and medicare? I paid for it and I want my money.
Today Ohio gave America hope. If you fight you can win. If you are right you can win. It is a mighty day for the poor and oppressed.
