In a win for Democracy and Abortion Rights, Ohioans voted down Issue 1, a proposal which would have made citizen ballot initiatives more difficult by raising the threshold from a simple majority to 60% of the votes

Ohio voters rejected a ballot measure Tuesday that would make it harder to enshrine abortion rights in the state constitution, delivering a major win for reproductive rights supporters.

Issue 1 asked voters to decide whether to raise the threshold of support required for future state constitutional amendments to 60%. Currently, just a majority is needed. The measure also proposed toughening rules for groups trying to place future measures on the ballot by requiring them to obtain signatures from voters in all of Ohio’s 88 counties, instead of the 44 now required.

In addition, the measure would have eliminated a 10-day “curing” period during which groups are allowed to gather additional signatures to replace any previous signatures that officials deem invalid.

Republicans are the Enemy of Democracy… Rigging Elections by Gerrymandering, Decreasing the number of Days and Hours people can Vote, Purging Minorities off Voters Rolls, Decreasing Drop-boxes, Decreasing Voting Machines in Urban areas, Limiting Polling locations / hours, Making it harder to Vote by Mail, Making it a Crime to give Food or Water to people having the wait in long lines they’re responsible for causing to discourage people from voting, Passing laws to overturn election results they don’t like, voting to cut Healthcare, Social Security, Medicare and Medicaid.

Republicans ran up the debt with “Tax Breaks for the Rich” while refusing to make the rich pay their fair share, attempted to steal the 2020 election while LYING & FALSELY claiming “Trump Won” while accusing Democrats of stealing the election with no proof, MASS SHOOTINGS of Children in Schools where Military Grade Assault Weapons were used such as AR-15’s because they REFUSE to pass legislation which would make such weapons illegal.

RIDICULOUS Culture War & CRT nonsense, laws dictating what can be discussed in classrooms with huge fines of $10,000 against teachers for violations, their war on LGB & Transgenders, punishing Disney for exercising their freedom of speech, passing laws which Criminalize Assembly & Protests, Laws Legalizing Running over & Killing Protestors, Passing Anti-Choice Legislation Against Women, Turning the U.S. into a Gestapo Secret Police State by Placing $10,000 Bounties on anyone who helps a Women get an Abortion, Conspiracy Theories, LIES and refusing to eliminate the Electoral College which made two (2) unpopular & unqualified Republicans Presidents, who the majority didn’t vote for.

Republicans are now full-bore Anti-Democratic Fascist, Authoritarians dedicated to seizing power by any means necessary.
