Killing Issue 2 would save Ohio: a response

October 13, 2011
On Tuesday, a letter by Nic Miller criticized opponents of SB 5, including myself, of lying and being intellectually dishonest. It’s time to set the record straight and show Mr. Miller that comments such as “SB 5 will destroy public unions and collective bargaining” as well as “SB 5 destroys public education as we know it” are not lies or hyperbole.

Real conservatives at the University aren't non-existent, they just aren't very loud. The loud ones are the liberals. So it's time someone got loud. The latest shouting lib is Matthew Balsinger with his libelous, contradictory evaluation of our own Governor Kasich. I wish people could be honest about Issue 2/SB 5. It seems nobody is. Sitting in a class last spring, I was listening to my professor lamenting SB 5 and how destructive it was. I raised my hand and said, "Uh, pardon me, sir. Did you know SB 5 does not affect collective bargain for the wages of public employees?"

They did so despite the overwhelming outcry of citizens across the state. Senate Bill 5 was passed and was signed by the Emperor on March 31.
