Revised Aug 21 2014
Residents of 11 Ohio counties including Medina, Summit, Stark, and Columbiana were not consulted when through fraudulent eminent domain their property was seized for a fracking pipeline, a consequence of the water poisoning earthquake causing fracking industry, a pipeline with massive risk of ground water pollution and explosions as well as environmental damage to people’s property. This pipeline is thoroughly backed by Kasich and the Republicans in the Ohio House.
Ohio has not since Al Gore was elected president been a Republican state, only a Republican vote fraud state.
The Republican Party’s decision to choose Cleveland Ohio as its convention site this year is partly due to Ohio’s alleged historical role as a swing state, but also a bid to try to keep executioner John Kasich in the governor’s office. Previous Republican Party thefts of the Ohio vote helped install the unelected George Bush twice. These are documented in a congressional committee investigation and by many numerous studies including one by Robert F Kennedy Jr. published in Rolling Stone magazine,

Time To Replace Executioner, Petroplutocrat Pawn, Library Funds Slasher John Kasich
Only 5 governors of 50 are still murdering prisoners in the name of the state. One is John Kasich of Ohio and to replace him with soon to be 47 year old Ed Fitzgerald.
Executioner, mass transit opponent, slasher of library funds,
nonenforcer of Ohio environmental law, governor John Kasich
should be dumped this fall. Please help make Democrat Ed Fitzgerald governor of Ohio.
While Kasich spends millions of state money for each murdered prisoner and uses tax money to support brutal bow and arrow hunting, he has cut library hours FIVE times. In Summit County 15 fewer hours a week at the library are now available.
The current incumbent, John Kasich, is one of only FIVE
governors our of FIFTY still involved in the barbarism
of state murder of prisoners (execution). The US is one of only 12%
of the world’s countries still involved in judicial,
prosecutorial, gubernatorial or other government
murder. Kasich ignores Episcopalian, Lutheran, Catholic,
Methodist, Presbyterian, Hindu, Buddhist, Jain, Jewish and
other groups opposed to state murder. Republicans on the Ohio Supreme Court have helped.
REPUBLICAN OIL AND GAS
Stop the fracking industry and Kasich from poisoning Ohio’s waters.
When Abraham Lincoln was murdered, a funeral train brought his body through Cleveland and Columbus to Cincinnati. In the early 1900’s, a triumvirate of powerful car, gas, and tire men sought around the country to kill trains and streetcars. The Cleveland to Cincinnati train disappeared. For many decades now Ohioans have been working to bring back that train. But Kasich, indebted to oil and gas men for his election, sent 400 million dollars in mass transit money back to Washington. 2 of the 3 (Rockefeller, Ford and Firestone) who destroyed the US train system were Ohioans. Many cities and towns in Ohio clamored to be included in the Cleveland to Cincinnati route. Amtrak ridership has increased 10 of the last 11 years. Trains are hundreds times more efficient than planes, buses, and cars. Kasich was not alone in vetoing the mass transit wishes of citizens. Executioner Governor Rick Scott of Florida and unionbuster Scott Walker of Wisconsin also sent back hundreds of millions.
Because of the Cleveland Clinic, Summa, and other hospital conglomerates as well as insurance scams by United health Care and others, Ohioans pay the 4th largest premiums in the country . when Kasich came into office he began slashing Medicaid recipients from the rolls and increasing copays for the poorest Ohioans. When a number of states recently took federal funds to expand Medicaid, Ohio was among them but the negligent phone contacts, the months and months for approval have made the Republican supervision of Medicaid in Ohio very inefficient. Medicaid applicants are not always known if their are rejected, nor the reason for the rejection.
REPUBLICAN JOB FALSIFICATION
The Kasich administration has falsified its jobs record.
LIBRARIES CUT…. HUNTERS HELPED
John Kasich has 5 times further reduced the money
for Ohio libraries, yet there have been no such reductions
for the 5% of the population who enjoy slaughtering bears,
killing deer, trapping beaver. The Ohio Dept. of Natural
Resources actually spends tax money promoting the brutal blood ‘sport’ of bow and arrow hunting. Some state univesity libraries which by law must allow use by community residents have been making these patrons stand at computers. Ohio funded libraries seldom provide scanners, microphones, current software.
John Kasich was an executive of Lehman Brothers when that company went bankrupt.
He was a frequent warmonger guest on monopolist Rupert Murdoch’s Fox News. Murdoch’s NewsCorp has been itself making news illegally tapping British citizens.
He has accepted over a half million dollars in contributions from his political appointees.
REPUBLICAN VOTE FRAUD
The Republicans of Ohio have cut way back on early voting because they are a minority party. The Republican attorney general of Ohio has tried to throw 26 million dollars of state legal business to one of his biggest Columbus law firm contributors. Ohio Republicans were responsible for vote fraud which twice installed the unelected George W Bush and stole the presidency of the elected Al Gore and John Kerry.
Ohio pension funds under the control of Republican Josh Mandel and others are dangerously invested in fast food despite Wall St. warnings that fast food chains are a bad investment.
One controversial issue is abortion legislation. The majority of people favor the right to have a first trimester abortion while opposing third trimester abortions.. Women’s rights groups are often on the opposite side of fundamentalist groups and half of Catholics. Kasich has taken a ‘prolife’ position, while frequently on Fox News supporting the illegal wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, bombing of Libya etc in which abortion by bomb has been commited.
Kasich opposed Ohioans For Humane Farms legislation. http://www.progressohio.org/2010/05/cqgt/
Many animals died because Kasich was late to act on exotic animals. The Kasich administration’s ODNR has aggressively spent tax dollars promoting the torture of animals called bow and arrow hunting. Members of the Kasich administration have encouraged local communities to massacre deer rather than working on expanding habitat for voiceless animals.
INSPECTOR GENERAL WHO DOESN’T INSPECT
HUMAN RIGHTS CAMPAIGN ENDORSES FITZGERALD
Despite Ed’s youthful appearance he will be 46 in 2014 and has experience as a mayor, a county executive, and in law enforcement.
CORRUPTION IN REPUBLICAN ADMINISTRATION
ENVIRONMENTAL PROTECTION GOES BACKWARDS IN KASICH ADMINISTRATION
From derailing antifracking action and inaction regarding forest protection o killing untold numbers of trees for lottery tickets, the Kasich administration has been the enemy of nature. Kasich’s brake on Ohio trains has meant more gas and oil pollution.
Footnote: When one looks in a search engine for Fitzgerald’s website, the plutocratic search engine owners put John Kasich’s website first.
