'We Are Ohio’ Enlists Admitted Communist Van Jones as Spokeperson in Issue 2 Battle
Big Government ^ | November 2, 2011 | Bytor

Over the past few weeks, we have brought your attention to how the unions behind the front group “We Are Ohio” are intertwined with the radical socialist/communist movement in America. First, we laid out for you who funds the vast majority of “We Are Ohio’s” campaign and how they have expressed not only support but provided coordination and accommodations for the “Occupy” movement, which is organized almost entirely by socialists who want to overthrow the American economy.

Then, we showed you that their “Statewide Youth Outreach Coordinator” is deeply involved in the “Occupy” protests around Ohio and openly decribes himself as a “revolutionary” whose goal is to implement communism in America. Now, “We Are Ohio” is hosting an official event with another radical self-admitted communist, Van Jones.

The American Dream Movement is flexing its muscle in Ohio. I’m coming to Columbus to be a part of it. This Thursday, November 3, we’re gonna Rock the Repeal of Senate Bill 5 and restore the voice of hard-working, middle-class Ohioans in their workplaces by voting “No” on Issue 2.

Ballot Issue 2 is about whether to keep Senate Bill 5 (SB5), a law the state’s legislature passed earlier this year, on the books. The law:

•Requires public-sector employees to contribute 10 percent of their salaries towards their pensions, and to pay 15 percent of their health-care costs.
•Outlaws public employee strikes while banning binding arbitration.
•Gives cities, counties, and school districts badly needed flexibility to control their costs. •Institutes merit pay for teachers, and potentially protects excellent but less experienced teachers from seniority-based layoffs.

A “yes” vote means that SB5 stays; a “no” vote repeals it

At this stage of the game, Van Jones can’t do any more damage than Kasich has already done.

According to his official bio, Van Jones was born and raised in Jackson, Tennessee, and has spent other segments of his life in Louisiana, San Francisco, and Washington, DC.

So he is Ohio WHY exactly?

It is similar to Wisconsin and the run away cost of public union workers. The private sector is stuck paying increasing amounts of benefits and taxes to sustain their bargaining agreements

Kasich is a far better governor than Strickland ever was, no matter what your union boss told you to say about him.
