Leftist objectives have the problem of deception, having some extremely superficial plausibility, which disappears after more than two seconds analysis:
“Ohioans will soon be voting on Issue 1, a ballot initiative that is ostensibly about reforming drug laws, but actually is about giving "get out of jail free" cards to not only drug offenders, but dozens of other kinds of criminals in Ohio's prisons.
