State Issue One is a government boondoggle which will create $700 million in debt and meddle in what is left of the free enterprise system in Ohio. Vote No.
State Issue Two is further cluttering of the Ohio Constitution. In a free society, adults should gamble when and where they please without a government quadropoly. To oppose this quadropoly, Vote No.
Finally, vote no on all tax increases and renewals. We are still in a depression and it is unconscionable to further oppress the people will more taxes.

This is a truly remarkable time. In many ways it is the worst of times and in many others it is the best of times. The communist government of Barry Soetoro alias Barack Hussein Obama, or as Pastor James David Manning refers to him; the Long Legged Mackdaddy, (see www.atlah.org) has communized General Motors, the insurance industry and the health care industry, despite premature, overly optimistic hopes that Obamacare or socialized medicine as it has long been known, would not be shoved down the throats of the American people.
Next on the list are more benefits to the international banksters, disguised as financial reform, (knee)cap and trade which would reduce what is left of our economy to permanent third-world level depression, advance of the mass invasion euphemistically called the immigration crisis, covert gun control through covert UN treaty and the ever-present threat of World War III especially by our Zionist neocon overlords’ hatred of Iran.
It appears as though members of Congress don’t care about what will apparently happen to them during the November elections. Do they know something which we do not? Or are they going for broke, since they understand that they are going to be replaced soon, anyway?
On the positive side, the American people appear to be more awake than anytime since 1963. Much of this long-hoped for development is due to patriots such as Alex Jones. (See www.infowars.com and www.prisonplanet.com.) The sheer number of meetings, including Tea Parties and numerous other constitution or libertarian minded groups, is certainly very gratifying. The depression has awakened many. The brazenness of the Obama gang as compared to the subtle enslavement which the fascists carried out during the Bush administration has also contributed greatly to this awakening. Will the patriot movement be co-opted by the neocons? Will the Republicans forget their newly discovered principled opposition to socialism if they gain power again? Time will tell.
Principles of liberty such as nullification, which have not been seriously discussed for over a century, have risen to the forefront of the political debate. If socialized Obamacare can be nullified, how much more of the cancerous growth of the fedgov which has afflicted America for almost exactly 100 years could be excised by principled state legislators even if Congress can’t restore the Constitution?
Perhaps the solution is with the state governments and a decentralization of the United States, according to the original intent of the Constitution. Such a beneficial effect would make it much more difficult for the one-worlders to rob us of our sovereignty and merge us into the new world order.
As for me, I don’t intend to take the chance that the Republicans have given up their vile addiction to power. I will vote Libertarian and I urge all of you to do so, too. This is the best way to send the message which I outlined at the beginning of this newsletter.
Here is still more good news. Ron Paul was actually within one point of Obama in a presidential poll recently. He has also won or come very close to winning several matches with other Republican presidential possibilities. If the Republicans have sufficient sense to win in 2012 they will nominate him for president.
Finally, Michael Badnarik is well enough to be holding Constitution classes and writing a newsletter including a complaint that he has not been sufficiently active to earn a place on the verminous Southern Poverty Law Center’s hate list, that being the list of patriots who they hate most.
