Dear fellow tax hikers, we are very happy to report that our Ohio Republican Party (ORP) refused to endorse three evil conservative Republican State Representatives for re-election. Normally the ORP automatically endorses all its incumbents, but something had to be done to send a message to conservatives that they aren't welcome anymore.
The three unendorsed lawmakers are Southwest Ohio Reps Ron Maag and John Becker, along with Ron Hood who conducts his treachery elsewhere in the state. They are more devoted to their constituents and conservative principles than they are to the political machine and Statehouse lobbyists. And for that, they must be punished.
The Ohio House GOP Caucus requested to the ORP that these three not be endorsed. They did recommend that State Rep. Peter Beck, who is under indictment on 69 felony charges, receive the endorsement. That makes sense to us.
If Beck was indicted for 70 or 71 felonies we might have had a problem, but as long as he's a 69er we'll be with him.
However our ORP Chairman Matt Borges, himself a convicted criminal with numerous tax liens, decided that Beck should not be endorsed. You know, maybe we were wrong to support Beck. Thank goodness we have Chairman Borges to serve as our moral authority. Either way, we are very proud of the Republican Party for putting conservatives in their place.
