Quote/Quip of the Week
"The essential feature of government is the enforcement of its decrees by beating, killing, and imprisoning. Those who ask for more government are asking ultimately for more compulsion and less freedom."
– Ludwig von Mises

Yours truly is taking a big step...

It is with great pleasure and humbled honor I announce I will be seeking the open seat on the Libertarian Party of Ohio's Central Committee to represent the 4th Congressional District. The seat is now open due to the recent move by Paul D. Hinds to Wood County, which lies in the 5th district.

Paul will be seeking appointment to the open seat for the 5th in light of Charlie Earl having stepped-down after declaring his candidacy for Governor.

Should the present members of the LPO Central Committee choose to appoint me, this will be the biggest role I will have played in the Libertarian Party's cadre of leadership

All this will take place this Saturday, August 17, during the state CentCom's regular meeting at the party's headquarters in Columbus.

Rest in peace, Marcy Lynn Kissick

Marcy and me

For those of you who have read updates about my wife's struggles at this Website, I have one last to post.

Shortly after 5 a.m. on Saturday, June 8, Marcy lost her fight to survive AML. It was not the leukemia which took her from us. She died from an infection of opportunity: the Epstein-Barr Virus (EBV).

I want to thank you all for your prayers throughout her battle. Her stem cell transplant was a rousing success. Unfortunately, with her immune system still weakened she contracted EBV and it ran roughshod through her body in a very short period of time.

There was nothing the crew at Ohio State could do.

I take solace in knowing Marcy has entered Heaven. She was greeted upon entry by her father, John Horvath, as well as her cherished first dog, Oscar. (It has been said that God will bring forth the animals we love during our lives if that is what will make Heaven complete for us)

Even then, the sadness is indescribable. It truly will take time to come to terms with the loss of the woman I knew beyond a shadow of a doubt was my soulmate.

Marcy was born on December 31, 1975. She was only 37.

I held your hand during our first date.
I held your hand as I bent down on one knee.
I held your hand as we shared our vows.
And, I held your hand as your heart beat its last.

When words escape me...

I frequently rely on music when I am struggling to convey what I feel needs to be said.

This is one of those moments.

On several occasions this year, I published slideshow videos I put together for Marcy. I did one after her father passed away in February and a pair in anticipation of our anniversary.

I assembled another video for Marcy while she remained in the James Cancer Hospital after her stem cell transplant. I wanted to express my love for her as well as how much I missed her during the week while I stayed home to work and then drove each weekend to Columbus. Now, with her passing, the words hold that much more poignancy as I wait until I get to see her again.

Marcy never got to see this video.

Take a moment to get to know Don Kissick

I'm a veteran. I'm an auto worker. I'm an activist for the cause of liberty.

I'm the husband of a beautiful woman who was my world and fought valiantly to survive her battle against leukemia.

I am chair of the Allen County Libertarian Party of Ohio. I am a builder, as there was no such structure before I got involved with the party.

And, I'm still trying to figure out what really is God's plan for me. Although, my faith has never been stronger in my life.

I do not know what the future holds. I just know I must be ready to meet it boldly.
