What's The Matter with Illinois?

And why do they keep freedom-hating urban Democrats?

The one-party Democrat rule of Illinois is quite possibly at an end - but the Republicans have a remarkably thin bench, and were all but put out of the game by that previous crooked governor George Ryan (R.-Jail).

Asking Illinoians who to vote for is like asking them which would they rather be shot by: a Smith & Wesson, or a Glock?

Be real. Illinois is controlled by Chicago. Who controls Chicago? The mob, by whatever name. One could say the Daily machine but I consider that a distinction w/o a difference.

When personal freedom is restricted, it creates opportunities for corruption. Hence personal freedom is not in the interests of the people who run Illinois.

The Daley Machine is not the Mafia. It is an old-school feudal aristocracy. Daley is a Duke of Chicago, with his own set of courtiers. The elections only matter for Aldermen, and even then they are often unfair.
