To, “Talk Turkey,” is to a have a sincere discussion on solving a problem.
Too many politicians and bureaucrats refuse to, “talk turkey,” and nothing gets done!
Our Goal Here Is SIMPLE:
Why the Turkey is a great symbol:
The Eagle, Ben Franklin, and the Turkey
Franklin’s Letter to His Daughter (excerpt)
- “For my own part I wish the Bald Eagle had not been chosen the Representative of our Country. He is a Bird of bad moral Character. He does not get his Living honestly. You may have seen him perched on some dead Tree near the River, where, too lazy to fish for himself, he watches the Labour of the Fishing Hawk; and when that diligent Bird has at length taken a Fish, and is bearing it to his Nest for the Support of his Mate and young Ones, the Bald Eagle pursues him and takes it from him.”
- “With all this Injustice, he is never in good Case but like those among Men who live by Sharping & Robbing he is generally poor and often very lousy. Besides he is a rank Coward: The little King Bird not bigger than a Sparrow attacks him boldly and drives him out of the District. He is therefore by no means a proper Emblem for the brave and honest Cincinnati of America who have driven all the King birds from our Country…”
- “I am on this account not displeased that the Figure is not known as a Bald Eagle, but looks more like a Turkey. For the Truth the Turkey is in Comparison a much more respectable Bird, and withal a true original Native of America . . . He is besides, though a little vain & silly, a Bird of Courage, and would not hesitate to attack a Grenadier of the British Guards who should presume to invade his Farm Yard with a red Coat on.”
It is our goal to essentially “speak turkey” or have a sincere discussion about the problems facing our great nation today from our perspective in the Buckeye State with reasonable and sound logic . Ohio in general has left a substantial footprint in our country’s politics over the years producing eight Presidents out of the forty-three. It’s diverse population has proven to be crucial in deciding our future leaders echoing the beliefs of our nation as a whole throughout its storied history.
