Our country is in the midst of a clash between two competing moral visions. It is not, as we have known in recent history, a traditional fight between Republicans and Democrats. It is a conflict between those who believe in the common good and those who believe individual good is the only good. While a biblical worldview informs Christians that they should be wary of the rich and defend the poor, a competing ideology says that wealth is equivalent to righteousness and God’s blessing. It is a morality play in which Washington, D.C. is the stage, politicians are actors, lobbyists are directors, the “debt ceiling” is the conflict, and we are the audience who will pay the cost of the production, whether we enjoyed it or not.

It is about time that someone ask the DOJ to look into this. It is simply a poll tax that these people are trying to implement. Governor Johnny Wall Street here in Ohio, doesn't seem to like anyone who isn't in the top 2%. Read more on this in the article

Is Fox News Scared? Desperate Attacks on Watchdog Group Media Matters Suggest Yes | Media | AlterNet
In the untamed jungle that is cable news, there is a ferocious and predatory beast stalking the terrain. Anyone who has encountered Fox News in the wild can attest to the spine-chilling threat imposed by the pseudo-news network. And now Fox News has the scent of new game. Read More Here.
It is no longer a place where people get a hand up, they now get a boot on their neck. Our politicians have been bought and paid for by big money. It is no longer a representative government. These people represent the interests of the few, and ignore the many. They have shipped our jobs overseas, and have beaten the downtrodden. They follow Ayn Rand, and then say they are following Christ.
Is this now the land of the desperate, and the home of the starving? Is this the land where people steal aluminum siding and copper pipes to survive? Is this the land where they talk about gutting our promise to our seniors, so that billionaires can keep their tax cuts? Is this the new "American Exceptional-ism"?

Since social security doesn't add to the deficit, why are they even talking about it at all? Oh I know, the Republicans have wanted to get rid of it since it's inception.-MIO

Here is the video of Robert Mecklenborg's arrest. He is found with a stripper, another "Family Values" candidate. He also, had viagra in his system, and was behind the Ohio driver license law (voter suppression). I wonder if he will be able to vote. Can we have the same rule for legislators, then all of his votes will not count.
If you wanted to vote for me, I wouldn't have my feelings hurt.
Now if he is against all of the above people, who is he for? Is it himself, or is it the Koch brothers, who he admit he knows, and have funded disinformation campaigns in the past. This state has been going backwards, since Governor John Kasich was inaugurated.
