Skip to comments.Gov. Kasich Lurches Left [semi-satire]
Posted on 11/26/2018 8:46:08 AM PST by John Semmens
Eyeing a potential 2020 run against President Trump, Ohio Gov. John Kasich (R) took a dramatic left turn in his final months in office. Persuaded that his everyone needs a hug might be a bit too thin of a platform, Kasich decided to reverse gears on traditional Republican pro-life and pro-self-defense positions and veto the so-called heartbeat bill and stand-your-ground bill.
The key factor in my decision was my perception that I must differentiate myself from Trump in any way I can, Kasich explained. If Trump is for something it must be wrong for America. So, when Trump came out as anti-abortion, I figure I have to oppose that position. The same goes for personal self-defense. Trump is such a strong advocate for Second Amendment rights that the only logical choice left for those of us who want to remove this monster from the presidency is to oppose the Second Amendment.
Both bills have passed the Ohio House with veto-proof majorities, but the Governor has threatened to ruin everyones Christmas holiday by forcing the legislature to return for an override vote during Christmas week. If these guys believe so strongly in protecting the lives of the unborn or allowing citizens to use deadly force against criminals let them sacrifice their comfort for their beliefs.
Whether Kasichs betrayal of Republican voters who elected him to two terms as Ohios governor will achieve the results he anticipates remains doubtful. Incoming Republican Gov. Mike Dewine favors both bills. So, a Kasich veto will likely only postpone enactment by a few months. As for boosting Kasichs chances against Trump, it seems that a newbie baby killer and gun-grabber would be less attractive than one of the Democratic 2020 presidential contenders with a longer pedigree on these issues.
In related news, it appears that Kasichs new position on abortion is in line with the Human Rights Committee of United Nations which just declared that states must legalize abortion. The declaration comes as a reinterpretation of an older UN provision stating that Every human being has the inherent right to life. This right shall be protected by law. The new interpretation includes legalization of assisted suicide and euthanasia. High Commissioner Michelle Bachelet Jeria explained we needed to update our interpretation to deal with the emerging problems of surplus human population. The previous provision was drafted in the wake of World War II when the widespread destruction of human life was on everyones mind.

So Kasich beefed up his platform.....once in office, everyone gets a McDonald's coupon......half off a Big Mac.
What’s funny is that in the highly unlikely event that Kasich got the GOP nomination, the media would turn him into “Hitler II”, just as they did with Romney.
I hear DNC chair Perez quickly picked up on that----a new Democrat poll suggests
assisted suicide for movie stars and mercy killing of celebrities are surefire vote getters.
Hopefully, this moron will Lurch toward the unemployment line after his next election. Thats where he belongs...idiot.
Maybe it is time to pass legislation that combines term limits with voter-assisted right-to-die.
I like it.
I didn’t know there was left left for him, but there he goes again.
