Lake/Geauga a "sovereign nation"?

David W. Jones

Next, an “Ohio Sovereignty Amendment” on the statewide November ballot?
So far, yes. The Ohio Ballot Board has voted 3-1 to let the People’s Constitution Coalition of Ohio circulate petitions to enable the group to get almost half a million signatures of registered voters.
Why? Expand the right to bear arms. Let people “recall public officeholders by means of petition.” Make the county sheriff’s office “become expressly preserved in the Constitution.” Don’t let the federal government “mandate”: health care reform.
One leader is Mount Vernon’s Michael Young of Knox County.
Among Geauga County supporters are former Parkman Township Trustee Alan Wilson and his wife Debbie, plus Gregg Soltis of Claridon Township. Among Lake County activists is Steve Parker of Eastlake.
Any of this news out there yet?
