In Ohio, Mitt went to the well once too often and has come up dry. Lying worked well for Mitt until he lied about Jeep moving jobs to China. His lie has been refuted by most media and most auto manufacturers. The voters in Ohio are starting to believe that Mitt does not respect their intelligence. It is going to change a close race for Obama into a rout.

In the contest between Barack and Mitt, some votes will be cast FOR one candidate and some votes will be cast AGAINST a candidate. Many millions of votes will be cast FOR Barack and only a few will cast FOR Mitt. In that election within the election, Barack will win handily. In the other part of the election, Barack will lose with more votes cast AGAINST him than will be cast AGAINST Mitt. I attribute that fact to the Romney campaign lies that distort the true records of both candidates. The election will be decided by totaling both the votes FOR and AGAINST both candidates. It will be close with Barack winning as long as there is an honest count. The 2004 election was stolen for Bush in Ohio and the GOP will try again if the vote is close. The voting machines in Ohio are owned in part by the Romney family.

Winning in November

CNN is now discussing what Barack must do to win in November. Get more votes obviously. Not so obviously, the votes must be counted honestly. I believe that a dishonest count in Ohio stole our last close election in 2004. How to prevent that from happening again in another close election? I’m not sure, but I hope and pray that the Obama campaign will do everything possible to prevent a stolen election for Mitt. All the laws against voter fraud are in aid of preventing legitimate voters from voting. Nothing in these GOP-sponsored laws to prevent cheating after the ballots are cast.

Drought and fires in the West.

Violent storms and flooding in the East.

Federal government declares disaster areas in Colorado and Ohio to make aid more easily available.

If the Republicans have their way in reducing the size of government to national defense and privatizing the rest, who or what will be available as a final resource to help those in need? Insurance companies want to make a profit and will find ways to reduce or deny benefits. Is your home in high-risk fire area or do you lack flood insurance for what once was a 500 year flood that now occurs every 5-10 years? Do you live in tornado alley? Sorry these are pre-existing conditions; you do not qualify for insurance or your premiums are so costly that you cannot afford insurance.

Government is there to do the things that we cannot do individually. That is why we have government at all. The purpose of government is to make all our lives better, not to make a profit or to help some and turn its back on others. Every citizen deserves government assistance when he/she is overwhelmed by acts of God or by Mother Nature.

Change of heart

Dick Cheney recently survived a heart transplant operation. Some survivors of this operation have experienced a change of heart in their way of looking at life. Some believe that the donor’s way of life affects the way the recipient lives his/her life. Just imagine if Cheney were to decide to come clean about the Bush/Cheney administration’s inner workings. There is much I would like to know about WMDs in Iraq, bin Laden at Tora Bora, the swiftboating of John Kerry and the vote counting in Florida in 2000 and in Ohio in 2004. They say confession is good for the soul. The truth from Cheney would clear up some of the distrust in the country and make Obama’s reconstruction efforts easier.  Cheney could go down in history as the last honest Republican. Probably too much to hope for.
