An important question for Cincinnati voters to ask

COAST has debuted their new yard signs that prominently feature a decorated bus (much like the Holly Jolly Trolley seen Downtown every holiday season and the special event trolleys that take people on tours of the city). The signs also simply state "Stop the Streetcar" instead of "We Demand a Vote" or "Stop All Passenger Rail" or "Any Means Any" or "No Taxation Without Representation" or "Lets Go Teabagging" or anything that would be closer to the truth.


When it comes down to the very core of COAST, and their stance on Issue 9, it's not about Democracy, voting, or even empowering the public to keep their government in check. What Issue 9 is all about for COAST (a special interest political group that has fought everything from gay rights to red light cameras to funding for our public libraries and childrens museum) is permanently changing our city's charter to more closely fit their political ideologies.


They're paid to fight for this while the rest of us are not. Our city's future is far to important to fall for the tricks of a special interest group looking out for no one else but themselves and their futures. A wise man once said, "follow the money trail."

but I'm betting at this point they don't even know what they are interested in.

I agree, ridiculous. These guys are absolute morons and are obviously intentionally deceiving voters. Why don't they just post a sign with the exact ballot language they are proposing so they can at least say their being fair? Oh, I know, its because they don't stand a chance in hell in winning if people actually understand what they are trying to do to our city charter.

Who are we being paid by? Miller, are you holding out on me?

I think Randy was being charitable. The only thing more disturbing than COAST being paid to cynically act on behalf of outside interest groups would be if they're doing it for free because they're actually stupid enough to believe their own bullshit.
