Ohio Candidate for Governor John Kasich Signs Petition to Protect Ohio Citizens From Federal Health Care Legislation

Columbus, OH, November 1, 2010. Ohio Gubernatorial candidate John Kasich yesterday signed the initiative petition for Ohio’s Health Care Freedom Amendment, sponsored by the Ohio Liberty Council.

 

This proposed amendment to the Ohio Constitution would protect Ohio citizens from mandates of the recent federal health care control legislation, and is the single strongest statement against the bill in the United States. Initiated by Ohio citizens, the proposed amendment has gathered over 250,000 signatures, having already exceeded the state-required number of participating counties.

Kasich said, “Today I signed the Ohio Project’s initiative petition to amend Ohio’s Constitution and preserve Ohioans’ freedom to make their own decisions about health care.

 

I believe Ohioans deserve the best health care possible, but Obamacare doesn’t do it. Reform is needed, but it should lower costs, not raise them, and it should keep bureaucrats out of the private relationship between doctors and patients and end the frivolous lawsuits that drive up costs.

 

Ohioans deserve a solution to health care that doesn’t bring more big government, but which preserves their freedom to make their own decisions about their health care. I look forward to working with you to bring about that change.”

 

The Ohio Liberty Council would like to thank John Kasich and Congressman John Boehner for signing this amendment and making a very clear statement that state sovereignty is alive and well and Ohioans will not tolerate the unconstitutional mandates of the health care bill.

 

 

About the Ohio Liberty Council

http://www.ohiolibertycouncil.org/

 

The Ohio Liberty Council is a nonpartisan coalition of like-minded grassroots organizations throughout Ohio.  The council strives to achieve these strategic objectives:

 

· Foster accountability of elected officials and government

· Grow awareness of the movement

· Promote state sovereignty

· Educate citizens

· Effect elections

 

The council began in June 2009 as a way to connect liberty-minded Ohioans.  The group communicates on issues, but more importantly, seeks to create concerted action among the groups.  By working together, the council intends to achieve real results to protect and promote liberty in Ohio.  The most important issue facing Ohio is state sovereignty, which is the main focus of the group.

Additional Background on Health Care Freedom Amendment

 

The amendment would protect Ohioans from the financial burdens and individual mandates contained in the new federal health care measure passed by Congress.

 

After amendment language was challenged and a ruling to block it was issued, the Ohio Supreme Court unanimously ruled against Secretary of State Jennifer Brunner, approving the constitutional amendment language. The signature gathering process is underway.  More than 402,000 valid signatures are needed to qualify for the ballot in 2011.

The Real Columbus Day – October 12th

Time for a History Month for other Cultures in the United States

February appointed as Black History Month has almost cycled through another year of national observance. How many years have all other cultures been denied for one culture? Nationally and original Nationality-34 years. This is shameful! I think it’s high time that other cultures and continental citizens are enabled with history and celebration who made contributions upon America. Where is the British History Month, Chinese History Month, French History Month, German History Month, Greek History Month, Irish History Month, Italian History Month, Japanese History Month, Russian History Month, Spanish History Month and Swedish History Month just to name just a few?

How would American society feel on the whole if there was just a White History Month? Why is there no Native American History or North American History or Studies in school? Where is the White Channel or the Native American Channel? I’m just saying, it’s something to think about. Do you know who, when, why the first Chinese came to America? Do you know what Sweden has to do with Delaware? Why is Roman History important to America? If you don’t know the answers to these questions, you don’t know history!

St. Patrick’s Day, Oktoberfest, Cinco de Mayo, and Columbus Day do not substitute, constitute or equate to  nationally or nationality celebrated history holidays!

It’s time for a history month for other cultures in the United States, if one is getting preferential treatment!
