Real Democrats aren’t afraid of leaving the vote up to the people. And that is why Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel and the other oligarchs will never be confused with being as such.

Illinois Super Scofflaws List Is Shameful
Well anyone who has read this blog regularly already knows I am no fan of the Illinois State Toll Highway Authority. And the reason is pretty simple – I believe that they have been a repository for patronage and that that means Illinois Taxpayers are not as well-served as they should be. Granted, they are...

Illinois Voter Challenge

Illinois Voter Challenge
I think the time has come for “The People of Illinois” to take back their government and they can begin doing it in a relatively easy manner.

Illinois: So Much More Than Just A Deadbeat State
So what’s new in Illinois Politics? Absolutely nothing as Illinois Senate President John Cullerton was able to easily defeat the only logical and sensible proposal that could have put a sizable dent in a State Pension System that is putting the state on a sure path to bankruptcy.

Preckwinkle Should Impose Mob Tax Instead Of A Gun Tax

Preckwinkle Should Impose Mob Tax Instead Of A Gun Tax
Beginning today all law-abiding citizens of Cook County (but not in Chicago) must pay a $25 Tax when purchasing a gun.
