Give me liberty or give me death.      Patrick Henry


I plan to run for Congress in the Fourteenth District against Steve LaTourette, who has had a very mediocre record of defending the Constitution. Although it requires only a minimum 50 signatures to get on the ballot, the deadline is December 7, only registered Libertarians, independents and people who have never voted before can sign the petition. Also, there is still dispute as to the boundaries of the district. If you believe that you are able to sign my petition, please call me at 440-248-8620 or email me at or come to our meeting on November 2.


November 3 Contact the Libertarian Party of Ohio if you are planning to run for office in 2012 as a Libertarian. The deadline for filing is December 7.

6:30 AM to 7:30 PM Tuesday, November 8 Election Day

Here is information about the three statewide ballot issues;

Issue 1 Judicial Retirement Age would amend the Ohio Constitution to allow judges to take office up to the age of 75 from the current limit of 70. VOTE FOR

Issue 2 Repeal of S.B. 5 to change collective bargaining laws, salary schedules, compensation, layoff procedure and leave of public employees. I have not had time to read this multipage law and it is certainly an example, both on the state and federal levels, of laws which are much too long and should be broken into comprehensible portions. However, this measure has the right enemies and I plan to vote YES to retain S.B.5. VOTE FOR.

Issue 3 Health Care Freedom Act would amend the Ohio Constitution to prohibit any local, state or federal law which would force Ohio residents to purchase health insurance. This measure would drastically restrict the form of socialized medicine which is known colloquially as Obamacare. VOTE FOR

The Libertarian Party of Ohio has endorsed Issues 1, 2 and 3. See

Here are a few comments regarding local Solon issues.

Issue 93 is a police equipment renewal. I plan to vote against it since we are in a depression and everyone must cut back. VOTE NO

Issue 94 is a measure to prevent not only the city of Solon but individuals from killing the deer which have infested the city since the late 1980s. This is another restriction on citizens which we should always oppose.  VOTE NO

Issue 95 is a zoning change to allow the Nestle Company to expand. The last thing we should do during the current depression is to restrict people from using their own property, especially to create more jobs. VOTE YES

3:00 PM to 4:30 PM Friday, November 4 and every Friday until further notice. Peace patriot Don Bryant will lead another pro-peace demonstration at the Federal Building on the southwest corner of East 9th and Lakeside Avenue. It was a pleasure to participate in this event a few months ago with my “Impeach Obama That’s Change We Can Believe In sign several months ago and I hope to do so again very soon. Don is an dedicated activist, especially on behalf of Middle East peace. For further information, email him at and get on his mailing list.

Rumors that I have resigned my position as Chairman of the Libertarian Party of Cuyahoga County are not correct. I am supporting Ron Paul for president,since he is the greatest living American statesman and a life member of the Libertarian Party. I am aware of the odds against him and of the bylaws of the Libertarian Party of the United States and of Ohio. As Teddy Kennedy said to Mary Jo Kopechne, I will cross that bridge when and if I come to it. Remember that our ultimate goal should be the restoration of liberty.

Here is a list of all of the coming episodes of Ron Paul vs. the Neocons or the Republican Presidential Primary debates:
