However, within that spectrum, we have seen the policy and political disasters wrought by unprincipled GOP politicians from George W. Bush (and George H.W. Bush) to Bob Taft, to Jean Schmidt and Kevin DeWine. And we have seen dramatic successes written on the walls of history by those who have followed the lead of Ronald Reagan.
With respect and kindness towards our Republican brothers who all-too-consistently back the more centrist elements in the GOP, and in many cases the unsavory and corrupt elements in the Party, we ask:
Do you want to continue to remain on the wrong side of history?
We marvel at donor list of Jean Schmidt (yes we have seen it and groaned) even after Lt. Col. Dr. Wenstrup announced he would oppose her and wonder:
- Did these donors really think she was a good Congressman, and would be better than Wenstrup?
- Did they really support Jean and her milquetoast policies, or was she just a "safe bet?"
And in the process folks like them actually make change more difficult by backing the status quo. They invest in failure, making the uphill battle for change even steeper.
Fortunately, COAST is here to encourage the broad coalition we need for change to think of backing only candidates of which we can be proud -- and who will take America in a bold new direction.
So, ask yourself:
Am I part of the problem or part of the solution?
Join the fight for a better Cincinnati, Ohio and U.S.A.
