It has now been over 12 days since an election for U.S. Congress in Ohio’s 12th (traditionally very RED) District, came out with a margin too close to call. It is now a tale of uncounted ballots and possibly -hopefully- a recount. The underdog in this story is of course the Democratic candidate, this wonderful human being right here, Danny O’Connor.
“Working people need a voice.”
“We need to make sure that the process is respected.”
“Too many people want a congressman that is going to represent every county.”
Q: And what does he say to those who voted third party?
A: “I thank them for voting. Because participating in our democracy is the most important thing we can do.” ~Danny O’Connor
So obvious right? But so rare these days; such positive rhetoric and such respect for our hopeful attempts at democracy. Plus I find him to exude a kind of humanistic positivity and grace that is irresistably inspiring. That is why I have been sending his campaign $15 every few days to help fund what we hope will be a recount.
Here he is taking a stand for -gasp!- accessible healthcare:
And here he is taking a stand for new leadership, on -gasp!- BOTH sides of the aisle:
Boy, just look at the that baby face. How he gets “ticked off.” And loves his mama.
Homemade vanilla ice cream for American pie the way I like it; a la mode, FOR the people, and NOT CORRUPT.
Equality, Sustainability, Justice and Love.
GO. DANNY. O’CONNOR.
