I sure hope that the disgraced former white house resident communist Van Jones signs his jailhouse manifesto in between bouts of public defecation and organizing criminals and rapists for the 'occupy' movement.

Us taxpayers are tired of your unions. Our PROPERTY TAXES are more than the value of our homes now thanks to YOU AND YOUR CORRUPT DEMOCRAT polititions. The only way you will win next Tues is if you bring ACORN and SEIU in to stuff ballet boxes and have your NEW BLACK PANTHERS in front of polling stations to club little old ladies to death if they dare go in to vote. We all know your game now. Putting firemen and children in front of you has lost it's impact on us who know how you are playing US, the TAXPAYERS! NO MORE MONEY FROM US !!!!!

Tired of corporate america goons taking from the middle class and thinning the herd. They want richer, they don't care about any of us tax payers union or not. They are using you for their own agendas.
For those supporting Issue 2/SB5, you are brainwashed by our fearless but stupid leader Kasich who has turned us all against each other and has you convinced that union workers are not taxpayers.
Hellooooo, we are!
We are suffering too and most of us do not live the privileged lives you are so convinced of otherwise. The fat needs to be cut at the top. Kasich is using our tax paying dollars for private security at his residence instead of using governors mansion, all because he doesn't want to send his children to another school district. WAHHHHHHHHH
President Obama had to uproot his children from Illinois, military personnel move frequently, so what makes Kasich so Gosh darn important that his kids can still attend their school at our expense?
He thinks the rules don't apply to him!!
Ask him if he is going to take a pay cut for sake of our state's budget/economy? Heck no he won't or neither will his staff, in fact, he will give them raises if the issue passes!!
GET YOUR HEADS ON STRAIGHT!! KASICH DOES NOT REALLY CARE ABOUT OHIO, HE JUST WANTS A BID TO THE WHITE HOUSE!!
We must take a stand and take our state back!!!! Get this goon out of office. He is the one destroying us not the unions!!!
You claim public workers are the crybabies but who is really whining about your freaking taxes? YOU ARE and have already forgotten that public workers are tax payers too!!
Looks like Kasich was successful in brainwashing you into thinking like corporate goons. Good luck if issue 2 passes cause you will be in soup lines with the rest of us public taxpaying workers. Just a matter of time!!!

Public employees are not taxpayers because they earn more from taxpayers than they pay in, they are tax receivers and if you ask me should not be voting because of the conflict of interest.

The arrogant corrupt caudillo of Wisconsin started this crap and he's under investigation for stealing funds. For Kasicko and others it's monkey-see-monkey-do, no independent thinking whatsoever. This biz about the unions being so bad is an orchestrated Orwellian smear campaign. Yeah, all the school kids are blimps yet we see department store models with broomstick limbs. Oh yeah so-and-so is about to shoot nuke rockets up our butts and we must act NOW! Never mind the consequences. Pink is blue. The sun shines in the night time sky. Let's put our heads together and kick out the jams!

It doesn't matter if you vote YES or No on Issue 2 because the Republicans have control over the Ohio House & the Ohio Senate, and they plan on passing certain parts of Ohio Senate Bill 5 next January if it is repealed on November 8! Lose Lose situation for Union Supporters any way you look at it!
