Tim Ryan…? In My Opinion, Ohio Needs Rank Choice Voting like Alaska

Comments are closed.

By wooing and chasing Republicans, #TimRyan seems like he wants to support #Corporate/#Business America rather than the actual people. 😒 [side eye] Why Tim? You’re looking like a wannabe Republican.  Once you head down that road, it’s hard for some of us to take you seriously.

You do know that the people are the ones who will keep you in office right?  If I were an Independent or Progressive I would not be rushing to the polls to support you.

That is why I think Rank Choice Voting would benefit Ohio greatly.  Not only Ohio though, I think the nation would benefit greatly from a voting system like that.  In essence, you would write down your first, second, and third candidates in the order of your preference.  And, as the votes are tallied, depending on the percentage of votes received someone will eventually emerge that should be a consensus candidate amongst voters.  It might be decided in the 1st round; but most assuredly by the 3rd round.

Alaska recently used rank choice voting to elect Peltola over Palin in their runoff election.  After the election was done, most people seemed to agree that the process was simple and the outcome, fair.  And, Palin walked off into the sunset for the time being.

Let’s consider this type of voting for the entire nation.  Imagine we could technically even the playing field for independent candidates who are not backed by a major political party like the Republicans or Democrats.  People could here their message and decide if they should be given a chance to represent their community or state.  It’s time for change.  Let’s make it happen.

Democrats and News Organizations are Slack in Reporting Outcomes from Republican Shenanigans

Comments are closed.

I understand that there is a lot going on, however I’m highly disappointed in the news media and Democrats not following up on the shenanigans of conservatives and the Republican party.  It makes me wonder if they really want to win the election this time around in November.

Over and over and over again we’ve heard about different scandals the Republican party has been involved with—like receiving political contributions through the National Rifle Association (NRA) from foreign donors.  What ever happened to that report?  I’ve been watching the news, but I’ve not seen the big finale or conclusion to that incident.  Are they still investigating?  Did they find out all who were receiving the funds?  How much was it?  I’ll bet if it were the other way around, you would still be hearing from Republicans to this day…no matter what the outcome was.

I just want to say for me, it is not okay.  Somebody needs to start closing the loop.  I think it emboldens the perpetrator when there seems to be no outcry to their offense.  So, taking the time to do a thorough follow up will both inform the public and if warranted cause a public outcry and awareness to what was done; and hopefully justice will be served.

Some politicians think they are above the law and should corrected quickly.  They are public servants.  It was a mistake to let them vote for increases in their own wages and benefits way back when, and it is a mistake to not correct them now.  They are getting out of hand.

My Opinion on the US Supreme Court’s Decision: On Guns

Comments are closed.

I think the Republican lead SCOTUS (Supreme Court of the United States) is now party to the business of killing Black people–IF nothing changes with policing.  Their decision concerning New York gun laws has made it more of a problem for people of color to stand their ground against police, who either misuse or misinterpret their authority, like White-Americans do.  (Because as we have seen in videos, they rarely get shot)

I didn’t think their jobs were to manipulate the laws of this land.  It looks like they  have done that on several occasions.  So–I guess there is no more settled law.

Police are already claiming they fear for their lives when African-Americans breathe wrong or turn to walk away from a situation escalated by the police.  Now, with this new ruling by the Supreme Court about concealed weapons, I believe Read More

Are you interested in learning about results for your primary local elections? You can see the results for your area by conducting a similar search as I did for Bertie County. There is a great deal of information available! And, don’t forget… Vote in the general election in November!!!

Remember, voting for those who are supportive of your concerns will help get resources, funding and assistance to you and your community. For too long, crooked politicians who are in the pockets of big business (in my opinion REPUBLICANS …and yes some Democrats), have been working against you and your interests. You want better roads and infrastructure? You have to vote for those who will work for you and not work against you in the service of corporations and other entities that are quick to say “government is bad“, but are the first in line to receive government contracts and other benefits. It’s time for a change. And you can influence those changes with your vote! I recommend voting for #Progressives in November 2022!

“Nothing Will Fundamentally Change”, He Said.

When candidate Joe Biden in essence said that “nothing would fundamentally change”, I think people should have believed that was what he meant.  If they would have believed him then, it would not be a surprise to them now that the watered down  “Build Back Better Act” was all that was going to be offered in the first place.  He doesn’t seem to be interested in real progressive issues. Nor do I believe he tries hard to pass progressives policies.  President Biden talks a good game in public; but looks like he’s an elbow rubber in private.  I truly hope I am wrong about this, but– that is what it looks like.

So here we are; with the #BuildBackBetter plan headed down the #ObamaCare road of weak legislation #BoughtByBusiness.  I gotta tell you, this is frustrating and disheartening.  DEMOCRATS SEEM TO BE LOSERS JUST LIKE REPUBLICANS… MAYBE NOT AS BIG, BUT LOSERS JUST THE SAME.  AND, THE MAINSTREAM MEDIA IS ALSO A TOOL OF BIG BUSINESS.  There ya’ go, I said it.  …I’ll probably be discussing my opinions on that in future posts. 

For now, let’s continue talking about the Democrats and their disastrous style of leadership.  Democrats start out negotiating with themselves (in a bad way) even before negotiations start.  They seem to be timid and too cautious to speak up boldly for the people they’re supposed to represent; and they give up at the first sign of a legislative fight.  That’s why it puzzles me that #Progressives seem to always feel the need to run as a #Democrat.  Advice: STOP IT!!! It doesn’t work!!!  They disown you every time!  Do your own thing.  And keep doing it until you win.  

I honestly believe many, if not most voters, have gone through the same iterations I did.  The Republican party– they sucked.  The Democrats– they were weak.  That is why I’m nonaffiliated.  I love it and I’m ready to vote for people who are ready to fight for average people.  

The Democratic Party should realize their party is being taken over by Republicans.  I need Progressives to step forward and be progressive–before you get drug down with the Democrats. You know they are going to blame you for any losses and take credit for any wins.  That being said, if you want to add to your ranks, reclaim your energy and power.

Don’t be afraid to stand alone, and don’t compromise.  Make them come to you, instead of you running behind them. Doing so only makes you look weak right now. You represent a large voting block and  you have a year to show people you can govern; and govern well.  You need more progressives –so ask the American people to get more progressives voted into office.  It’s your time.  Do something with it.

~Good Luck, I’m cheering for you.
