Thousands of years of history, with rules developed to make a society function better ... but you have it figured out they were wrong. "zero bearing on my life as I'm neither gay nor a polygamist." yeah right ... giving entitlements to any "marriages" you don't perceive as influencing your life should be allowed. You know the original colonies demanded their residents attend church…

Morality cannot be legislated. Period. When you start making morality laws, then freedom doesn't exist any more. While some might laugh at using the example, look at the movie DEMOLITION MAN. One of the running gags in that movie is when someone says a "bad word", Big-Brother-Is-Always-Listening computer buzzes and issues a fine for a "violation of the verbal moralities code". If that's…

Some monogamists "marry" underage kids, too. But that's breaking the law, same as it would be if polygamy was made legal. You're using deviant cases like Warren Jeffs to paint a picture of a whole host of people, and that's no more justified that calling the entire Catholic church pedophiles or all men serial killers because of John Wayne Gacy. You cannot paint with that broad of a…

The Founding Fathers most likely did not intend for political liberty to include freedom to practice immorality. Liberty is too often confused with license. Yes, some of the Founders had immoral relationships (the supposed relationship between Jefferson and his female slave, for instance), but I don't think they intended for those to be codified as legal in all the states. And I don't think…

You make valid arguments except this: in some instances, the polygamist marries an under-aged teenager who does not or cannot consent.

Rauener and Evelyn Sanguinetti will meet and greet at Sprout's Inn at 12:45 p.m.

Bruce Rauner announced Evelyn Sanguinetti as his Lieutenant Governor selection today and they began a two-day tour of the state that will take them to Chicago, Rockford, Quad Cities, Marion, Quincy and Peoria.

“Evelyn is the perfect partner to shake up Springfield,” Bruce Rauner said. “She’s achieved the American Dream and will fight so more in Illinois can reach it too. She grew up in poverty, relying on public assistance, and worked hard to become an Illinois Assistant Attorney General, a City Councilmember, and a teacher at the very law school that gave her the opportunity to work for this state.”

“She has the talent and guts to take on the lobbyists, special interests, and career politicians that are destroying this state and eliminating opportunities for the next generation,” Rauner said.

“I’m proof that with hard work, a good education and an opportunity anyone from anywhere can make it,” Evelyn Sanguinetti said. “Unfortunately, too many in Illinois who have backgrounds that look a whole lot like mine aren’t being given access to a quality education or that opportunity to succeed. I understand firsthand how the policies pushed by the career politicians are failing us and that’s why I’m excited to run with Bruce Rauner to transform Illinois.”

Sanguinetti currently lives in Wheaton and is a member of the City Council. She and her husband, Raymond, and their three children. She has been involved in Franklin Middle School, Lowell Elementary School and Jefferson Preschool PTA’s. Evelyn is also a member of the Wheaton Chamber of Commerce and the DuPage County Bar Association. Evelyn and her family are active in Cub Scouts, the Community School of the Arts, Wheaton Briarcliffe Youth Baseball, and sports within the Wheaton Park District.
