We’ve been doing some ‘Buckeye Back Roads Stumping’ throughout Ohio of late, putting up fliers and passing out campaign cards. It’s our answer to the Super PAC ads and multi-million dollar big Party budgets. This week… I stumped in The Donut Shop in Huron where, that’s right, they sell donuts. (What’s more, they even have a big walleye mounted on the wall with a chocolate donut between it’s teeth. “Bait” in these parts, I’m told.) There were about 12 regulars sitting around the counter and the conversation got quite animated. The common theme was most of the guys were getting fed up with the negative campaign ads and millions (and millions, and millions…) of dollars being spent on the presidential election. “Then I would be your guy,” I smiled, while trying to decide whether to spend the extra money on a large coffee, or not. We then headed east to Vermillion, where I put up a flier at the Wooly Bear Restaurant. A “wooly bear” is slang for catepiller here. (As coincidence would have it, my wife Liz was teaching our Jonathan about catepillers and butterflies during a ‘motorhome school’ lesson this day.)… In Fremont, Ohio, we interviewed Scott Heidlebaugh who is the Northwest Ohio Field Director for the “60 Plus Association.” He explained this is a consortium of lobbying groups of seniors who believe AARP is too liberal now. 60-Plus is working behind the scenes to get as many Republicans elected as possible this election. Note: To stay with the 60-Plus theme, I was also talking to a woman earlier in the week who said with the Baby Boomers moving into retirment (10,000 a day), she’s concerned public opinion for more and more euthanasia is building like a silent tsunami. In our earlier campaign travels, we stopped in northern Texas where we toured the Loredo House. Local money and local volunteers helped build this facility which is a hospice for the disadvantaged, and others. The directors told us they were adamantly opposed to euthanasia and the ethos of this place was: “death with dignity” — in God’s time.
