The New Face of Apartheid: J. Kenneth Hackwell

Posted by Bob Fitrakis on March 30th, 2006

The most unprincipled and opportunistic man in the history of Ohio, Secretary of State J. Kenneth Blackwell, stands poised to claim the Republican primary for governor. Blackwell and his far-right theocratic “rapture-ready” Christian dominionists will doom the Buckeye State to further despair. It should come as no surprise that the Free Press is the only […]

The fact that electronic voting machines don’t work may finally be sinking into a segment of the mainstream media. The fact that e-voting machines can, have been, and will be used to steal elections, continues to go unreported. At least the corporate media has moved from framing the allegations of e-voting fraud as “conspiracy theory” […]

How We Can Best Defend Our Nation

Posted by Bob Fitrakis on March 18th, 2006

Our great nation is at a crossroads and we the people must move quickly and creatively to avert catastrophe and defend the national security of our country. On the third anniversary of the unconscionable and illegal attack on Iraq, we must confront the president and his small circle of sycophants. The Bush regime lacks the […]

Peace is Patriotic

Posted by Bob Fitrakis on March 16th, 2006

As the third anniversary of the Iraq invasion approaches this weekend, I support the immediate withdrawal of all U.S. troops from Iraq. The Iraq invasion is a stain on the integrity of the United States. It is an illegal and immoral war based on perhaps the most well-known lie in the world. That Iraq had […]

Restoring Democracy in Ohio

Posted by Bob Fitrakis on March 15th, 2006

As a former international election observer, who co-wrote and edited the 1994 report delivered to the United Nations on the first democratic elections since the peace accords in El Salvador, I saw far worse abuses of the election process in Ohio in the 2004 presidential election than I witnessed in Suchitoto, El Salvador. The elections […]

Ending Corruption: Why Ohio Needs an Independent Green Governor

Posted by Bob Fitrakis on March 14th, 2006

Only an independent governor associated with a third party movement can root out the fraud and make the rules fair for everyone in Ohio. The wealthy own the Republican Party, and they lease the Democratic Party as needed. The Democratic Party which controlled Ohio in the 1980s did little to rein in special interests and […]

Going Green in Ohio

Posted by Bob Fitrakis on March 13th, 2006

The key green slogan is: Think Globally — Act Locally. It is imperative that Ohio go green, not only for the good of our small planet but to revitalize the Buckeye State economy. As Governor, I would set an immediate goal to have 20% of all energy be green energy within my first term. This […]

Blackwell, White Supremacy and the CNP

Posted by Bob Fitrakis on March 12th, 2006

The biggest story in this year’s gubernatorial election should not be that the FBI is investigating James Petro, but Secretary of State J. Kenneth Blackwell’s relationship with the far right Council on National Policy. The CNP is a highly secretive reactionary group with fascistic tendencies and ties to racists and homophobes. The article that I […]
