On the Occupation’s first Election Day, some victories were just too big to steal!

Big win for Democrats in Ohio and an abortion surprise in Mississippi

The outcomes Tuesday in balloting from Maine to Mississippi included enough wins for Democrats, abortion rights advocates, and labor unions to give a bit of a lift to President Obama and his allies as they look toward the 2012 elections, 12 months from tonight.

In Ohio, voters overwhelmingly rejected the law enacted last spring by Gov. John Kasich and the Republican-controlled legislature that limited the ability of public employee unions to collectively bargain.

The law also would have required performance-based pay for most public employees and required them to pay 15 percent of the cost of their health care benefits.

  1. Yes, credit the Occupation Movement for protecting our elections becuz the Power Elite fear it.

    I predicted that Kasich’s anti-union bill had to go down in flames becuz the elites know they must have the cops on their side and Kasich’s bill would have busted police and fire-fighter unions.

    I love the work that Bob Fitrakis and Greg Palast do. But I think they do harm when they make predictions before elections that the fix is in when it really isn’t. If I’m not mistaken, Fitrakis wrote the Kasich’s union-busting would be stolen at the ballot box and Palast said that McCain’s forces would steal it in 2008.

    Such false calamity howling hurts their cred.

  2. Someone please correct me if I have things wrong about Fitrakis and Palast and provide a source to back it up.
