With the recent vote on House Bill 320, it's now obvious that most Ohio Republicans in the statehouse are nothing other than Ohio Democrats 10 years later.
Where the Republican Party used to be about the individual, the votes on HB 320 of prove that most elected Republicans are now the primary sponsors of the increasing nanny state.
Should Strickland sign HB 320 into law, drivers will be ticketed for failing to secure in booster seats children who are between 4 and 8 years old and shorter than 4 feet 9 inches tall. In fits of delusion, the Republicans believe they know best -- they know better than parents.
But isn't that the ideological position of the left?
With the current lot of Republicans in office, and voting like Democrats from the 1990's, there really isn't a dimes worth of difference between the parties -- just a decade at best.
I won't be voting for any current Republican office holder in the future. If I want a Democrat to represent me, I'll vote for one.
