On Tuesday, Ohio voters will decide whether to repeal legislation passed by Republicans in March that would severely restrict collective bargaining rights for hundreds of thousands of public employees in the state.

Unlike in Wisconsin, where unions lost a similar battle earlier this year, the fight over Senate Bill 5 in Ohio is unfolding very differently. First, progressive groups forced a referendum on the law with a massive signature drive.

Things are now looking rosy for the progressive side, despite some lingering concerns among labor strategists. A recent poll showed that the labor side of Issue 2, the ballot measure that would repeal the bill, is up by 25 points. (A “no” vote would repeal the bill)

And if it works, thousands of state employees will bask in the warm glow of their unemployment check.

There is no reason that would be the outcome, unless the horrible governor chooses to do that as retaliation for thwarting his oerweening hubris.

Just as the Koch brothers themselves, and allied national orgs of the right, have insinuated their agents and agendas by stealth all across the country, there must be a nationalized effort to defeat all such quislings and traitors to this country and its people.

The handy mark is the Koch donation, or if you will, simply the GOP party designation.

So weird that the march to fascism you decry is happening now under your nose, and to your great applause. Not paying attention, or do you really favor rule by authoritarian fascists?

You can be honest, you're among friends here.
