5 Thoughts to “Submit Your Letter to the Editor”

    Why have Ohio’s new redistricting rules resulted in a political train wreck? The answer is hiding in plain sight. Taking a fresh look at this amendment, I found two poison pills. 1) “The general assembly shall not pass a plan that unduly favors or disfavors a political party or its incumbents”, and 2) “The plan shall comply with all applicable provisions of the constitutions of Ohio and the United States and of federal law, including federal laws protecting racial minority voting rights”.

    While commendable, these goals remain vague and undefined. Who decides what “unduly” means? How are minority voting rights to be measured? Nebulous language requires interpretation. Lack of clarity is why this will be decided – not by the Ohio General Assembly – but by one vote on the state Supreme Court.

    Was usurpation of legislative authority the plan? Going to Ballotpedia to “follow the money” I discovered a coalition of multi-million dollar corporate entities, and left-leaning organizations. Organizations like the National Democratic Redistricting Committee PAC, chaired by former U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder, and former President Barack Obama (D). The stated aim of the NDRC is to “… position Democrats favorably for the round of redistricting following the 2020 census”.

    The Devil’s in the details. Flush with out-of-state cash, corporate interests, and openly declared partisan goals, I have to ask why Republican Senators Matt Huffman (Lima), Kirk Schuring (Canton), and the Ohio Republican Party, supported it? I think we need a do-over.

    The Democrats were successful in removing Margorie Greene from her assigned committees. This has no precedence as those committee assignments should be controlled by the representative’s own party. If the Dem’s are so upset about prior language and statements, why is Maxine Waters still in congress, why is Eric Swalwell still on his committee, why is Alcee Hastings still in congress. In 1974 Chuck Schumer conspired to get several black families removed from rental property. Why is Schumer still in the senate. The Republicans need to learn how to play hardball along with the Dem’s. This country is very close to a tipping point and the 75 million Trump supporters are still alive and well.

    Let’s unite the country? Really?
    OK, let’s start with ending the calls for demonizing, censoring, arresting, firing, black-balling, or deprogramming Trump supporters; not calling us traitors or domestic terrorists, and stopping the harassment of Donald Trump with endless insults, lies and lawsuits.
    How about an admission that the 4 years of Russia collusion lies and harassment was unfounded, that President Trump did not openly call for an armed insurrection of the Capitol building, and abandoning this ridiculous and unconstitutional impeachment trial.
    How about acknowledging that BLM is the real domestic terror organization, headed by avowed Marxists who are hell bent on destroying the nuclear American family, and responsible for the destruction and vandalism of thousands of small businesses, federal buildings and monuments, the deaths of dozens of Americans, and the death or injury of almost 300 police officers.
    Then maybe we’ll learn to live with the election you stole and agree to talk about moving this country forward.

    In the meantime, expect 74 million Americans to support Joe Biden just like you Democrats supported Donald Trump.

    The question of the Gay/Lesbian et al accomplishments being noted is redundant. Through the ages, if an accomplishment was noteworthy, it was noted. The only thing being left out was their title according to their sexuality, which is unnecessary and inappropriate in terms of school children text books and literature. It would be like a heterosexual teacher announcing to his class, “I had great sex with my wife last night. Boy am I bushed!”
    It’s ridiculous, it’s not necessary in any sense of education. Just include the accomplishment and leave off the sexual preference title and move on!
