Over the next 10-plus weeks, will each of us care enough not only to get our own fanny to the polls, but to recruit and educate other citizen-soldiers in the fight to recapture Illinois?
Because if we do, we can create real consequences in this election — and in Chicago municipal elections that follow.
The Chicago Tribune editorial today blasts the Democratic leadership troika of Madigan, Cullerton, and Quinn, along with the business as usual system of running this state. The editorial does not only demand change, it demands consequences. The consequences should be the ejection of Chicago Democratic Machine and Springfield Democratic Combine hacks from Springfield.
The Illinois Democratic Party- the little sister of the Chicago Machine- has proven it is too corrupt, inept, and irresponsible to lead or govern this state. The citizens are paying the price of corruption, waste, fraud, and mismanagement- five hundred million dollars alone in Chicago. God knows how much statewide.
In Chicago, we feel the human toll with the political establishment enabling the gangs and drug dealers who kill our children and police officers. It is time for consequences. Severe consequences. Illinois and Chicago can no longer afford the corrupt and criminal Democratic Party- a true felonocracy. We can no longer keep going down the same apathetic path we have generation after generation.
Their time has come. Like all evil empires, the Democratic Machine must fall. They must be crushed. They must be strewn on the trash heap of history. It is time to clean house. To drain the swamp that breeds these monsters. Enough is finally enough.
