    Yes.

    Especially the resulting schadenfreude if it passes like expected tomorrow.

    Issue 2 is the collective bargaining issue. It was 30 points ahead to repeal over the last month or so then there was a barrage of ads bought to vote yes.

    Hoping people are going to get out the vote tomorrow to repeal.

    That is because many do not understand issue 2. It is like anything else in politics.

    One side uses fear tactics to make people think that our safety is at risk, and the other side tries to get the point across that A yes vote on Issue 2 will make long overdue reforms to unfair and costly government practices in Ohio, while helping to get government spending under control and making government more accountable to taxpayers.

    official arguments FOR/YES issue 2

    Official arguments for and against Ohio Senate Bill 5 Veto Referendum, Issue 2 (2011) - Ballotpedia

    Official argument against/NO on issue 2

    OMG we are all going to die by the hand of "big corporations" :eek:

    I am voting YES :lol: No really I am voting YES :cool:

    A yes vote is to keep Senate Bill 5, a no vote would repeal it

    A yes vote on issue 2 is a vote against teachers, firefighters, nurses and police. That's all you have to know and that is how the repeal is going to be successful.

    Vote no on issues 2, vote for teachers, firefighters, nurses and police.

    Yeah.

    A vote in favor of issue 2 supports keeping legislation that creates limits on collective bargaining rights for public employees. Current polling shows firm popular support against issue 2, and in favor of repealing the limitations. However, come election time the results could indeed be very different depending on how actually gets out to vote.
