Can new life be blown into politics?
or is it all an elaborate stage show meant to garner votes?Just based on what I've read thus far, I would vote for the guy
. Almost makes me want to say that I would move back to Ohio just to be able to vote for him. But that's never gonna happen, so we're just gonna have to hope that he is a new breed emerging and that change is coming.
Typically, I don't pay that much attention to politics. I vote during the presidential elections, but that's about it. Democratic U.S. Senate candidate Paul Hackett, he would provoke me to reach out and pull the lever for other elections.
Stumbled across this guy when Jen asked if he would be her president.
And I can really get behind his thought process.With succinct coherence, Hackett said: “I’m pro-choice, I’m pro-gayrights, I’m pro-gun-rights. Call me nuts, but I think they’re all based on the same principle and that is we don’t need government dictating to us how we live our private lives.”
Asked to define being pro-gay rights, Hackett said anybody who tries to deny homosexuals the same rights, including marriage, as every other citizen is un-American. Are you saying, he was asked, that the 62 percent of Ohioans who voted in November 2004 to constitutionally deny same-sex marriages are un-American?
“If what they believe is that we’re going to have a scale on judging which Americans have equal rights, yeah, that’s un-American. They’ve got to accept that. It’s absolutely un-American.”
