It all started this year.Welcome, spring 2012. The buds are on the trees. Grass is green. There's moisture in the broad farm acres of Northwestern and Central Ohio. Who could say we aren't ready for another productive, progressive, fantastic year of magic growth, an abundant yield unlike ever before.The Lima school levy went down to defeat. Ohio State University tied for state command to surprise us all. You can't win them all for all the sports. However, the year is spread out for all the schools, all of us where loyalty and faith is all about.It is also the year we change presidents. We have made our choice. A national campaign is under way — Democrat or Republican? It will likely be the most exciting in history. More money will be spent when the nation is in the greatest debt ever recorded. Who could have ever imagined?The test will be magnanimous. The U.S. will never rise to a more absolute decision. To balance the budget, regardless the years it will take. The debt to China will be paid. Unemployment will be solved. Prosperity will return. The United States will run the world. Democracy will be proclaimed around the globe because everyone will want to become No. 1.
