barackobama:

Hug.

It is disgusting that Representative John Boehner, who does not live in or represent the American voters of Fairfield County can predetermine who wins an election in Fairfield County. The Republicans are in cahoots to steal voter rights and steal elections. This is the same group as represented by Republican County Chair Kyle Farmer (and teacher at Eastland-Fairfield Career center) who told us in an advertisement earlier this year that teachers get “raises just for showing up.” It appears Republicans are doing everything possible to deprive the people, the workers and the families of Fairfield County of a strong economy, plentiful jobs and fair voting.

My name is Reed Bailey. I’m a Democratic. I am running for Fairfield County Commissioner. I believe people, workers, families and voters come first.

Healthy Employees & Healthy Customers Make A Healthy Economy:

Healthy employees can properly get their work done. Healthy people can get to a store and buy things.

Republicans believe unhealthy workers and unhealthy people make America great and strong. Republicans are incorrect.

America has Obamacare because President of the United States Barack Obama Cares about all Americans. President Obama Cares about Americans staying healthy. President Obama Cares about all American consumers by nominating strong leaders to head up the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau. President Obama cares about the physical health and economic health of all Americans. 

Healthy people makes a healthy America.

Fairfield County Commissioner Candidacy Declared:

This afternoon I filed my petition as Democratic Party candidate for Fairfield County Commissioner. I begin with: People, Workers & Families Come First. If we first take care of these, then we will have a truly great County, a wonderful Ohio, and a great America.

Thank you to all the people who signed my petition. Thank you to everyone who helped, advised and was patient with me during this petition process. I especially thank petition circulators: Michael K. Oatney, Larry Blair, Paul Johnson and Tim Welker. I also thank those who gave me frank confidential opinions. 

   Now, let’s build candidate campaigns that elect Democrats in Fairfield County. Go Dems. When Democrats are Elected, then Americans Win.

   ”My name is Reed Bailey. I’m a Democrat. I believe People, Workers & Families Come First.”

Republicans Are Regressives; Democrats Are Moving Forward:

Democrats want to send all children to good schools; and enable everyone to get a good job and have good health care and a good retirement.

Republicans want to eliminate child labor laws, cut funding to public schools, forbid economic stimulus, prevent people from obtaining health care & affordable health insurance, and drastically reduce Social Security & Medicare.

Democrats want to move forward, to the future, by changing and growing with the times. No one knows what the future will be. Nevertheless, Democrats are thinking about the future and embrace it for the good of all. Democrats want to improve public education, make the economy stronger so everyone can get a job, have affordable health insurance available for everyone and have Social Security & Medicare as part of a good retirement.

Republicans want to take the country back to about 1900 when there was no protection for the air you breathe; no Medicare; no Medicaid; no Social Security, no unemployment insurance; no child labor laws; no 40 hour work week; and before it was legal to belong to a union. Republicans want to take America back to when ‘free enterprise’ was so free the 1% lived in luxury and paid few taxes. Meanwhile, the workers lived on slave wages in tenement houses.

Do you want to go backwards, in reverse, with regressive Republicans? Or, do you want to go forward with Democrats? 

How will you earn your next meal and have a roof over your head if we go back to 1900?

I’m a Democrat and I believe: People, Workers and Families Come First.

People, Workers & Families - Poor, Sick & Uneducated - No Longer Deniable

There is a political party that is hell-bent on keeping People, Workers and Families (PWF) poor, sick and uneducated. This political party engages in haughty, pernicious subterfuge to deny economic, social and psychological well-being to PWF while at the same time enabling the 1% to astronomically increase their wealth and income. This political party is not looking out for the well-being of 99% of PWF. The report and radio program at the links below make it irrefutable that this political party does not have the best interests of PWF in their heart. The statements of this party saying they are helping PWF are now seen as false.

My name is Reed Bailey. I am a Democrat. I am proud of it and I favor all policies that put People, Workers and Families first. I deny the opposing party any darkness in which to hide their bad behavior.

Read this report: 
"More Unequal and More Separate: Growth in the Residential Segregation of Families by Income, 1970-2009" http://cepa.stanford.edu/news/growth-residential-segregation-families-income-1970-2009 (This study reports on relative incomes in areas around the USA and when you take into account that 0.5% of the world population controls 38.5% of the world’s wealth, then the insidious behavior of the other political party is more evident.)

Where Are The Jobs Governor Kasich?

Democrats voted for American Jobs Act. Republicans at Federal and State level refuse to build an economy with good jobs. Republicans think not improving the economy is how to get re-elected!

Democrats want the economy improved and proposed the American Jobs Act. Federal Republicans voted against jobs by voting against AJA. Ohio Republicans, using Governor Kasich’s Lehman Bros. Wall St. style management, have gone five months with no drop in unemployment.

Republicans vote against workers and families.

It’s so easy to express or explain a good thing.

It seems the deceitful things, the falsehoods, and the bad things take a lot more words to explain. Interesting isn’t it? Fewer words are needed for good things.

President Obama Demonstrates Wisdom

It is wise to have soldiers come home alive! President Obama is wise because he is bringing American soldiers home from Iraq.

Republicans Believe Ending A War Is Failure:

I wonder how wise Rick Perry, Mitt Romney and all the other Republican Presidential hopefuls really are? Republicans believe it is an “astonishing failure” and “a dumb thing to do” to stop the killing and fighting of the Iraq War. In their judgment, it is a good thing to keep putting American soldiers in harm’s way. Republicans want to continue the Iraq War because of the “blood and sacrifice” that’s already occurred. Huh?

So, we keep fighting because we were fighting yesterday? I wonder why Republicans want to keep a war going on forever? It makes me wonder if they are wise at all.

Ohio Republicans Waste Millions Of Dollars Today!

Ohio Senate passed bill requiring TWO PRIMARIES. This doubles the cost of primaries in Ohio. One primary will do the job! Republicans clearly show they do not walk their talk. Democrats are clearly against wasting money on two primaries and voted against this bill.

Republicans are irresponsible. Two primaries increases the cost of government at the State and County levels!

What are the Republicans thinking? They claim Ohio is in a terrible financial situation and then they deliberately spend millions of dollars more! Republicans tell us one thing and do another.

It is good to work together. It is good to cooperate and build a better country together. How can cooperation and working together be wrong? Your faith taught you cooperation is good. To say working together is wrong is insane! The people that say it are crazy! 
Everyone having high speed Internet access is good. Everyone having health insurance is good. Everyone having access to high speed passenger rail is good. Everyone having access to interstate highways is good.
People who want a better America build things together. People who do not want to build together are selfish and power-hungry. People who don’t build together don’t care about main stream Americans and the working person.
So, the next time a politician says cooperation is wrong, think about it. That politician is probably trying to cheat you. You may not see it right away, but you know it because cooperation is good.

Ohio Republican Husted Supresses Voter’s Rights: This is voter suppression of the same kind that happened in the ‘Old South’ that people lost their lives to stop. From an email press release from Husted’s office,  ”Today petitions seeking a referendum on House Bill 319 were dropped off, but will not be accepted by the Ohio Secretary of State’s office.” HB319 is the Ohio Republican Congressional gerrymandering passed with essentially no public hearings and creates districts that take away voter’s rights.
Now, in Ohio, not only is the Republican legislature stealing voter’s rights, they are aided and abetted by the person who is supposed to protect the voters! Democrat Legislators voted against HB319, but have insufficient votes to prevent Republican vote stealing.

Workers: The 99% of Americans Are Your People.  The Republicans “don’t need your people.” Workers, Republicans are not on your side. Republicans are abandoning the 99%.
Former Lehman Brothers executive, current Governor of Ohio, Republican John Kasich said, “I don’t need your people.” 
Republican Senator from Kentucky Mitch McConnell said on the Senate floor, “By proposing a second stimulus, Democrats are showing the American  people that they have no new ideas for dealing with our jobs crisis,” Nope, McConnell is wrong. Republicans have no ideas to create jobs and, as my grandfather taught me, doing something is better than doing nothing. McConnell wants to do nothing and have no chance of jobs growth! Republicans are abandoning the 99%.
Democrat President Obama proposed the American Jobs Act to do everything possible to create jobs. Democrats support the effort to create jobs. Democrats support the 99%.

This is the face and words of a disingenuous person.

Vote NO on Ohio Issue 2 !

I do not believe, support, advocate or agree with what Fairfield County Republican Party Chair, Kyle Farmer, said in this video. I do not agree with his opinion on how to educate the children of Fairfield County.

Rather, I champion those who cooperate, negotiate and work to build a better, kinder, stronger, educated America. Vote No on Issue 2 !

And so there is no mistake of my meaning; I use disingenuous to mean:   

  1. Not noble; unbecoming true honor or dignity; mean; unworthy; fake or deceptive.
  2. Not ingenuous; not frank or open; uncandid; unworthily or meanly artful.
  3. Assuming a pose of naiveté to make a point or for deception.
