Post subject: 300,000 Signatures For Health Care Freedom

Yesterday, we received our 300,000th signature for the Health Care Freedom Amendment in Cleveland, Ohio. It was such a big deal that it got the attention of national radio talk show host Glenn Beck. Listen to the 4 minute clip below with the announcement.

Click to listen to the audio

(Quick note: Glenn misspoke when he said that we had 400,000 signatures. Today, we have 300,000 signatures.)

Check out also the nice write-up on Glenn Beck's website about The Ohio Project.

Volunteers are energized and ready to get this project done. Signature collection events all over the state are being organized and have begun after a winter rest. Volunteers are getting ready to hit the streets with organized springtime precinct walks to protect their health care freedom. 85,000 or MORE signatures will allow us to submit to the Secretary of State on July 6th and a total of around 150,000 MORE signatures* should put the Health Care Freedom Amendment on the November ballot. November, here we come!

Take the 25/25 PLEDGE to VICTORY: Get 25 Signatures (or more), Donate $25 (or more!)

*Depending on our actual validity rate once the signatures are validated by the county boards of election. We must anticipate working hard at collecting signatures through all of July and part of August as the county boards of election tally our signatures.

Also picked up by Associated Press today and other news outlets:

NPR: http://www.ideastream.org/news/feature/39890

Associated Press:

COLUMBUS, Ohio — Voters in Ohio could get a chance to cast a ballot this fall on two divisive new laws: the federal health insurance overhaul Democrats backed in Washington, and collective bargaining restrictions Republicans backed in Columbus.

Political scientist John Green of the University of Akron's Bliss Institute says the nation will be watching the political bellwether state if both issues make the Nov. 8 ballot.

The Ohio Liberty Council tea party coalition said Friday it has collected 300,000 signatures toward its effort to amend Ohio's constitution. Its proposal would block provisions of the federal Affordable Care Act requiring the choice of certain health care providers.

Also Friday, opponents of new limits placed on 350,000 unionized public workers said high demand has prompted Saturday petition-signing events across the state.

My problem with Obama care is it didn't go far enough. If he didn't go for universal healthcare, he should have atleast held out for the public option.

You can follow most recent signature totals on the home page of http://www.TheOhioProject.com . As of the moment of this posting we are at 377,072 signatures . Bare minimum we need to submit is 385,245. We are currently on a pace for 400,000 by the end of June. We need to have all petition packets turned in no later than June 30th and everyone should continue to circulating through July until we announce that it's ok to stop.

We need the help of all defenders of liberty to help wrap this up. You can download the petition at http://www.TheOhioProject.com and be a part of history in the making. Volunteers have never collected this many signatures in Ohio. This is our chance to be a big part of cracking the health care mandate (a.k.a. the "Obamacare" mandate), which forces everyone to have health care insurance starting in 2014.

All, this is easy to do. If you need a walking list for your neighborhood, send me a PM and I will generate one with the most likely signers. I have been doing 30 a week for the past few weeks. So far if the people are home, everyone except for one had signed and been excited to sign.

Jason,
Have the 300,000 been verified or is this just the raw count?

Pretty sure I already responded to this, but I guess it didn't make it by the moderator yet. Our current total is kept up-to-date on the homepage of http://www.TheOhioProject.com . We will be crossing 385,245 signatures (the minimum required to submit) today (June 20). This is a raw count of signatures. We are not publishing our validation rate, but let's just say that it's very good. We have to continue to gather signatures thru July and early August. Don't let up, we are doing very well, and just need to keep the pace up.
