Fascism in Ohio

CantonRep.com details the two school-funding amendments that may appear on the November ballot (Proposed school-funding amendments may appear on ballot).

Certainly fascism is a loaded term, but it is also the most applicable term to describe the situation proposed by these amendments; a coalition of representatives from education, business, and labor, guiding what will quickly become the largest component of Ohio's budget.

Say it ain't so! It escapes me why anyone would look to Italy of the 1920's through the 1940's as the standard. Of course, many Americans were enthralled by Mussolini and his Blackshirts during those years, including FDR and his Brain Trusters. Some never forget, and some never learn.

For our children's sake: Vote NO in November.
