Those who know me or read my literature also know that I have a generally low opinion of politicians! So I was absolutely astounded to meet one who may actually be a real person who cares about making life better for all Ohioans!
This year we are faced with the worst two candidates for President in my lifetime. I wish we truly had a competitive choice. If he had any real chance of winning I would vote for Gary Johnson. I share much of his philosophy of national governance – MODERATE fiscal conservative; MODERATE social liberal.
I just finished watching the Trump acceptance speech tonight. I will think more about it in the coming days. But my first impression is that it was really dark and frightening. Two impressions I got were especially disturbing:
What is all the fuss about Melania Trump’s speech last night. I would think Democrats would be thrilled. Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery!!
I know I feel lots better now. After the harsh rhetoric of the Republican presidential primaries I am encouraged to discover that the Trumps secretly admire the Obamas so much. That probably means if Trump is elected President he and Melania will try to emulate the Obamas’ example of quiet elegance as well as rational governance policy!!!
I am amazed and saddened at the condition of public education in Ohio. I moved here from South Carolina where public education was low quality and corrupt. I was eager to be in a state where I naively thought things would be better. WOW!! Was I wrong!! In some ways conditions are worse here in Ohio.
A self-appointed citizens’ group calling itself Represent Columbus is proposing to fundamentally change the structure of Columbus City Council.
