Porkopolis on Ohio 2nd Election

A lot of buzz out on the political blogshpere on the upcoming special election in the Ohio 2nd.

For readers visiting this site via links from other blogs looking for coverage on the election, a link to With all due respect Major Hackett and Candidate Jean Schmidt is conveniently provided.

Update: Reading BizzyBlog's excellent coverage, I was reminded of my posts Paul Hackett on Taxes and Candidate Paul Hackett wants to increase middle-class Social Security taxes by up to $7,440 per year.

Whatever the outcome, let's appreciate the fact that we have an opportunity to participate in a representative democracy. A privilege some take for granted and many in China, Saudi Arabia, Syria, Cuba, North Korea and many more are not afforded.

FYI, Churchill never said the quote you attribute to him. In fact, he was conservative at 15 and liberal at 35.
