Livin' La Vida Leslie

Dear fellow tax hikers, the news that singer Ricky Martin has come out of the closet means that the Leslie Ghiz for Commissioner campaign has picked up another supporter! As her last name would imply, Ghiz (pronounced: 'Jizz') has been a strong supporter of the homosexual community and they have been equally supportive of her. This is but one of the reasons that we support her so strongly.

Ghiz has proudly accepted the endorsement of the pro-gay group Equality Cincinnati in prior campaigns. For years Leslie has been strongly supported by the gay group Log Cabin Republicans. They became her number one fan when she strongly criticized the conservative group Citizens for Community Values for taking out a newspaper ad opposing new gay rights, as Ghiz stated they should have spent the money on children.

We have no doubt that Leslie Ghiz spends her campaign money on children rather than on her own campaign, just like she expects of others. Since Ghiz is no hypocrite, she will be unable to afford tv spots or mail pieces for this campaign and must depend on a grassroots campaign of homosexuals and tax-hikers to get her message out.

One of the reasons Leslie is running for County Commissioner is to expand gay rights countywide just like she did for Cincinnati. At a recent campaign forum Ghiz strongly hinted that she would join with Todd Portune to implement domestic partners coverage for the lovers of gay county employees. Maybe they can even raise taxes to pay for it!

When you think of gay, think of Ghiz. We strongly support Leslie Ghiz for Commissioner because of her support for gay rights, domestic partners, higher taxes, big spending on projects like the streetcar, and her strong endorsement of Democrat David Pepper for Commissioner in 2006. Gays for Ghiz!

Support Issue 1


I am writing regarding an issue of the utmost importance. We need to unite in support of Ohio Issue 1 in the upcoming election. Don't know what Issue 1 is? You may remember my extremely successful Third Frontier initiative. With the help of my fellow travelers in the Ohio Legislature such as Michelle Schneider I was able to push $1.6 billion in new state debt for a high-tech jobs initiative.

Ohio's Issue 1 will renew my wildly successful Third Frontier initiative with $700 million in new state debt. If my time as Governor has taught you anything its that higher debt and massive government intervention in market economics is a good thing. In fact, it's vital to economic stability.

The results speak for themselves! Ohio's economy has never been better. Ohioans from Cincinnati to Cleveland and everywhere in between are inundated in new high-paying, high-tech jobs. Can't you see it? Our fine state's unemployment rate is nearly non-existent.

My high-tax allies in the newspaper editorial boards are doing their duty by endorsing this important big government initiative. They have been bolstered by loyal tax and spend Republicans from all corners of the State. I need you to do your part to support the effort. Please call all of your chronically unemployed friends, family, and neighbors and encourage them to vote YES on Issue 1. According to the Cincinnati Enquirer, the University of Cincinnati received a $36 million grant that created zero jobs thanks to the first Third Frontier effort. Perhaps with another $36 million they could create one or two additional jobs on top of the original zero. I can't think of a better way to leverage your hard-earned tax dollars. We must have this initiative. Our state's future depends on it!

Yours in taxes,

Governor Bob Taft

Prominent GOP blog; accurate

Dear fellow tax hikers, we at Republicans for Higher Taxes are very proud of the growing influence and respect that our movement has earned over our three years of operations. We have taken this power and used it responsibly to ensure that when push comes to shove, the Republican Party remains the party that delivers the higher taxes and big-time spending increases that we so greatly deserve. This is why we strongly endorse great tax-and-spend Republicans like liberal Leslie Ghiz and 2009 Tax Hiker of the Year Michelle Schneider.

Recently two more media outlets have honored our work. A local liberal newspaper, whose News section is run by a liberal homosexual activist, has referred to us as, "a prominent GOP blog." Indeed we are. There is no finer blog in Southwest Ohio that promotes the values of our Republican Party - higher taxes, more spending, and supporting great Democrats like Todd Portune, David Pepper, and Barack Obama.

From the other side of the spectrum, a Tea Party-supporting blog called From the Rust Belt recently referred to us as, "the snarky but accurate Republicans for Higher Taxes." Us, snarky? In spite of the snarky quip, we credit them for having the intelligence to recognize us as an extremely accurate blog. We take pride in the accuracy of our information. If we ever do get it wrong, we will run a correction or remove the questionable claim. What other GOP tax-hiking blog can give you such accurate and reliable coverage?

We are, as the two above blogs stated, an accurate and influential GOP blog. We continue to be a powerful force for maintaining the Republican Party as a tax-and-spend machine. Party operatives and the media alike know the good we can accomplish when we tax hikers stick together. Tax us more!

Michelle Schneider - proud tax hiker

Dear fellow tax hikers, we are very proud of the tax-and-spend record of former State Representative Michelle Schneider. That's why we awarded her our 2009 Tax Hiker of the Year. And because of her fantastic record of raising our taxes, we have strongly endorsed her for State Senate.

Our Michelle Schneider's recent tv ad states that she makes no apology for voting to cut Ohio's Income Tax. That's because this vote also implemented a brand new CAT tax to replace that revenue.

Michelle Schneider should also make no apology for voting for Bob Taft's Sales Tax hike that has taken billions from Ohio taxpayers, She absolutely shouldn't apologize for raising Ohio's Gas Tax by a whopping 27%. We hope Michelle will never ever apologize for supporting the Hamilton County Hotel/Motel tax hike that was sponsored by Jean Schmidt and signed into law by Bob Taft.

We don't ever expect to see our Michelle Schneider apologize for giving The Freedom Center $3.1 million in taxpayer subsidies, while taking a $2,500 contribution from former Freedom Center CEO John Pepper. Michelle knows that we need higher taxes so that rich CEO's like Pepper can get all of their projects subsidized by the taxpayers.

Michelle has been a great friend to our tax-and-spend movement. But there is so much more to do, and so many more taxes to be raised. That's why it's vital we elect good, qualified, tax-and-spend Republicans like Michelle Schneider to higher office. Michelle Schneider for State Senate!

Fat woman seeks to weigh 1000 pounds

(Donna Simpson, a mere 600 pounds)

Dear fellow tax hikers, one of the greatest thrills about leading the GOP tax hiking movement is reading all of the wonderful emails we get from our supporters. The last couple days worth of messages take the cake. Days ago our loyal supporters directed us to the now-viral story about the lovely Donna Simpson, a gorgeous goddess of a woman seeking to weigh a full 1000 pounds to become the world's largest woman.

Note: We will not be discussing Leslie Ghiz in this post.

Donna has a big problem. She only weighs 600 pounds, requiring her to gain another 400 pounds to reach her goal. It is estimated she will need to woof down 12,000 calories/day to put on the necessary pounds. We wish her the best of luck.

Ms. Simpson is an enterprising large woman. She has to be, to pay her $800 per week food bill. Currently she pays for this by running a website where men pay money to watch her eat! We are proud to be the latest subscribers to her site. There is nothing we'd rather do than watch this enormous sweathog eat a week's worth of food in one sitting.

Just imagine the potential tax implications of this fat pig's behavior as she adds to her hefty frame:

1. Once she is tired of having to support herself she will claim disability and go on Workers Compensation.

2. After being classified as disabled, she will go on Medicaid so all US taxpayers can pay for her exploding health care costs.

3. She will also be eligible to go on FOOD STAMPS! Then, we can all pay taxes to fund her enormous food bill.

We at Republicans for Higher Taxes are always looking for inventive ways to pay higher taxes and spend more taxpayer money. Donna Simpson is one of our heroes, for her gigantic dreams, gigantic waistline, and the gigantic amount of tax dollars that all of us will soon be paying to fund her lardass lifestyle. Tax us more!

Tim Burke assists Leslie Ghiz

Dear fellow tax hikers, we are delighted to see Hamilton County Democratic Party Chairman Tim Burke working with Leslie Ghiz to help defeat conservative Republican Chris Monzel. Since Ghiz has been unable to pick up endorsements from Republicans besides her campaign chairman, she might as well enlist support from Democrats to help her win the Republican primary.

Burke owes Ghiz. In 2006 Leslie Ghiz endorsed Democrat David Pepper for County Commissioner, giving control of the County to Tim Burke's Democratic Party for the first time in 4 decades. This allowed Democrats to fund Planned Parenthood with tax dollars and raise the Sales Tax by $777 million on behalf of Si Leis, two acts that Chris Monzel strongly opposed.

Now it's payback time. Burke, Leis, and Ghiz are working together to ensure that our county retains its tax-and-spend majority. We must defeat Chris Monzel in the primary because Burke has not been able to find a Democrat who is likely to win the general. The union of Leslie Ghiz and Democratic Chairman Tim Burke is great news for our tax-and-spend movement and represents a shared commitment to stop the conservatives from retaking our County. Ghiz for Commissioner!

David Axelstache Under Fire

Dear fellow tax hikers, one of our heroes White House Senior Advisor David Axelrod has found himself the target of finger-pointing for the political failures of the Barack Obama administration. We cannot sit back and watch as the media and others work to tear down this great political mind and strong tax-and-spend ally.

We at Republicans for Higher Taxes strongly believe in Mustache Power. Axelrod is the highest-ranking mustache in America today. Anyone - and we mean anyone - who fights the 'stache will be sure to regret it. Guaranteed.

We were proud to endorse Barack Obama for President because of his promises to raise taxes and socialize our health care. And he said he'd bring hope and change. We also felt comfortable knowing that Obama would have a mustache man at his right hand. Sure we are disappointed in Obama's lack of accomplishment, but he still says he believes in hope and change so we're going to stand behind him.

David Axelstache is a great political operative who retains our full support. We still believe in Mustache Power. We call on Axelrod to summon his inner 'stache to give him the power he needs to make Obama the best tax-hiker he can be. We are 100% behind the 'stache.

Monzel Campaign Manager on Fox News

Dear fellow tax hikers, you cannot believe how disgusted we were to see Chris Monzel's campaign manager Christa Criddle featured on a Fox News story about the rising Tea Party influence in the Republican Party. She was even wearing a Monzel shirt and Monzel signs were shown everywhere! We are very upset that we were not contacted to provide a big government alternative to Team Monzel's position.

The Tea Party should have no influence whatsoever in the Republican Party. We are the party of higher taxes and bigger government, and we support candidates like Leslie Ghiz who agree with our agenda. Chris Monzel is a conservative who has consistently opposed our high-tax agenda. For that reason he should be disqualified from any further GOP support.

Fight back by renewing your support for our endorsed candidate for County Commissioner Leslie Ghiz. We will defeat the Tea Party. We will defeat conservatives like Chris Monzel. We will elect Leslie Ghiz to maintain our tax-and-spend majority on the County Commission. Tax us more!

April 16th - Leslie Ghiz Appreciation Day

Dear fellow tax hikers, we invite all of you to attend our special Leslie Ghiz Appreciation Day on April 16th. There we will honor our endorsed candidate for County Commissioner Leslie Ghiz for everything she's done to raise our taxes and elect Democrat David Pepper to the County Commission. These last three years of Democratic control have been some of the most prosperous, most successful in Hamilton County's history. We owe Ghiz tremendous thanks for making it happen with her key support of Democrat David Pepper.

We are going to allow the Cincinnati Tea Party to hold their big event with Sean Hannity on April 15th. But April 16th will be our day! That anti-tax conservative Chris Monzel will not be invited. His consistent opposition to higher taxes has been a huge obstacle to our tax-and-spend agenda.

By contrast, Leslie Ghiz has been one of our strongest allies ever. Leslie helped the Democrats take control of the Hamilton County Commission with her public endorsement of Democrat David Pepper. Leslie helped the Democrats stay in control of Cincinnati City Council with her support of Democrat Jeff Berding. She was one of the first elected officials to endorse the $800 million Sales Tax hike passed by David Pepper and Todd Portune. Leslie voted to build Mark Mallory's $200 million streetcar. Chris Monzel refused to do any of this!

Leslie Ghiz has earned her own special day for everything she's done to endorse Democrats and raise taxes. On Leslie Ghiz Appreciation Day this April 16th we have a great opportunity to show the Republican voters of Hamilton County just how much we value higher taxes and Democratic control of government. With Ghiz's election to the County Commission we will be able continue the pro-tax policies of Pepper and Portune. We can't wait to see all you tax hikers next month when we all come together to salute Leslie Ghiz for electing Democrat David Pepper and endorsing huge tax increases.

Young Republicans Conspiring Against Ghiz

Dear fellow tax hikers, recently our endorsed candidate for County Commissioner Leslie Ghiz stumbled upon a massive conspiracy organized against her by her former friend Alex Triantafilou and the Hamilton County GOP. We have discovered another active component to this conspiracy, the Blue Chip Young Republicans. Consider the following evidence:

- One of Monzel's two campaign co-chairs is Colerain Fiscal Officer Heather Harlow, a former club President and active club member.

- His campaign manager is Christa Criddle, an active club member.

- Monzel's Chief-of-Staff is Brad Beckett, one of the club's VP's.

- Current Club President Charlie Norman has endorsed Monzel. Norman, who also serves as Cheviot's Treasurer, has managed to lock down several more endorsements of Cheviot elected officials for Monzel.

- Past President Jeff Capell has also endorsed Monzel and is campaigning hard for him.

- Past Vice President Collin Rink recently endorsed Monzel too.

- Monzel, Harlow, Norman, and Capell all have 6 letters in their last names. Conspiracy!

This is a conspiracy! The Blue Chip Young Republicans have joined with Triantafilou and the Hamilton County Republican Party to stop Leslie Ghiz from bringing her tax-and-spend record to the County Commission. The BCYR's make up an important part of Monzel's campaign and a key component to this huge conspiracy against Ghiz.

But us tax hikers can overcome this! We are behind now but once everyone realizes what a great tax hiker Ghiz is she will win. We owe Ghiz this office for endorsing David Pepper and other Democrats, raising taxes, and voting for Mark Mallory's streetcar. Stop this widespread conspiracy! Elect Leslie Ghiz County Commissioner.
