I’m sure John Kasich is a great speaker. Plug your ears and watch. Here is what I know of him. He was a long time politician and elected eight times. He was the managing director of the Columbus investment banking division of Lehman Brothers, paid $587,000 salary, bonus and other benefits. He maintains he wasn’t a high-level decision maker and shouldn’t be blamed for their demise; he was 1 in 700. A managing director is subordinate only to the chairman of the board. Does anyone really believe Kasich was paid more than $500,000 to sit in Columbus and do nothing? If John didn’t see the signs he company was in trouble how is he going to manage our state?
Voters are frustrated with the flip-flopping between the Democrats and the Republicans. We need to stand up and do something different. If you do what you’ve always done, then you’ll get the same results that we get time after time.
Let’s have the courage to be different this year and take back our country and freedom. Look at the Libertarian Party that was founded in 1971 (lpo.org) and has a host of candidates who want to restore the American dream. Check out Ken Matesz for governor under the Libertarian Party. His small business is still thriving despite an unfriendly regulatory environment. The lieutenant governor candidate is Ann Leech. The Libertarian party believes in less government involvement and more personal freedom. Give the ordinary person a chance. They welcome your support.
