While I won't be voting for Kasich because of his narrow second amendment views, how is Lebron pertinent to Ohio's future? Where does Obama stand on this important issue?

While not a basketball fan in particular, and while LeBron may not be important to OHIO as a state, his leaving will certainly have an economic impact on the city of Cleveland. His presence in Cleveland brings in visitors from out of town as well as fills the Q which inturn fills the restaurants. Don't underestimate the power of a sports star to impact the economics of a city.

so you will take one issue and ignore all others when making your choice for governor? How is that senseable?

The state of Ohio has a lot more problems than LeBron leaving the Cavs. I am glad that Kasich said that he is "not overly concerned". That makes me think that he has his priorities set right. Unlike Obama who has to interfere with College Football and the bowl system. Give me a break people. I don't want LeBron to leave either. But is that an issue that you feel the executive office in the state needs to be worried about?

You see America, there is no "Free Speech" left in this country anymore. Once there was a saying "sticks and stone my break my bones but names will never hurt me" but then lawyers said I can throw this saying out and make lots of money off the Freedom of Speech bull. Yep, that's the Now America.
