Presidential Election Promises More of the Same...
Once again, Ohio is center stage of another Presidential Election. Most of us have had our minds made up long ago as to the candidate we will support. Neither candidate is much to get excited about. This is about as exciting as Bush v. Kerry. That wasn't exciting to anyone! Still though, there is approximately 5% of the state's population that are "undecided". Hundreds of millions of dollars will be dumped in Ohio trying to convince us that Obama deserves another four years, or that Romney really cares about people who do not contribute to the RNC. Then of course we would be remiss if we didn't mention the PAC monies that are flowing into the state as well. National organizations believe they know what's good for Ohio. They go to great lengths to smear the other candidate. Indeed, big money will rule the day. U.S.S.C. Citizens United will prove to be one of the biggest blunders in democratic history. In fact, big money can very well destroy what it hoped to save. Big money will rule the airwaves... But I wanted to remind readers that Ohioans are a fickle lot. And at the end of the day, that will make up their own mind. Here is a nice read by Robert Reich. He always has so intelligent insight:
