This post is an answer to some message board and blog comments I've read of late. It seems to me that people think that because Ohio voted democrats into top positions this past November, we have become a blue state.
The liberals wonder why the liberal format is going away in Columbus radio. My answer to that is maybe people don't want to hear "rah rah me" as much as they want to hear "shame on you".
Now that democrats have gained power, Rush Limbaugh and those who have patterned themselves after him will gain popularity.
Has Ohio turned "true blue"? I don't think so. I think that in November, people voted for change, not necessarily for the Democrats. They voted against the party in power. I think the state turned "purple".
My observations have been that the Republicans have promised to legislate morality, and Democrats promise to legislate prosperity. I don't think you can truly legislate either. Morality comes from within. Prosperity comes from hard work.
I think abortion is wrong. I also think this war isn't really right either.
Each party goes to the extremes for their candidates. Nobody looks towards the middle.
I have a unique concept. How about government of the people, for the people, and by the people?
