This afternoon I took a trip to downtown Circleville, Ohio to catch a stop on Rob Portman’s just launched RV Tour. Rob spoke to grassroots leaders from the area and stressed the importance of this race; and Ohio in general in 2010.
He stressed how important it was to avoid giving President Obama and Democrats in Congress another rubber stamp for their liberal agenda. He noted that on a host of issues (health care, energy, taxes, the deficit, etc.) the Democrats are pushing liberal policies out of line with the common sense conservatism and values of Ohio.
He noted that the stimulus was rushed through and yet is having little to no positive impact on Ohio despite the Democrats grandiose promises. He noted that on issues like Cap and Trade and Health Care the Democrat proposals are simply going to raise taxes and kill job growth in Ohio.
I was lucky enough to have a chance to talk with Rob briefly on the RV. In the video clip below he stressed these same issues and highlighted why this race is so important.
If you haven’t already done so be sure to check out Rob’s new web site and get involved in the campaign.

Unfortunately, both parties have decimated the first principles that made this country great over the last 80+years. The Democratic Party, steeped in progressive, liberal philosophy, has consistently fought for consolidated, centralized political power at the expense of individual self-determination. In recent years, the GOP has been less rigorous in providing a robust loyal opposition. Ironically, even though recent elections have produced a plethora of courageous constitutionalists under the GOP banner, the party has failed to enact policies predicated on the venerable principles of liberty enshrined in a Libertarian worldview.
Share on Facebook 1 1 SHARES On May 15, the Katie Couric vehicle “Under the Gun” premiered on Epix. It is in the tradition of films like “Bowling for Columbine” in which left wingers who loathe firearms and gun owners use a tragic event that took place because gun laws were evaded in order to try to pass more gun laws to keep people who | Read More »
Share on Facebook 1 1 SHARES Used to be that you could get rich relatively easily in America, by having a business you were starting that threw around the right Internet buzzwords. Get funding, IPO, get out and count your money. That bubble burst obviously, but this period of “irrational exuberance” ended up causing a great deal of pain to people who rushed in to | Read More »
