I root for the Cleve Browns even though they have zero chance of winning the super bowl. Chance of winning doesn't come into play on this obsession - doesn't come into play when I vote either. I vote for what I want - I do not "settle"..

The goal this year is not to win its to get 5% of the vote so ballot access is not an issue in four years. Right up until about a month and a half ago the Libertarians were doing little if any campaigning. They were fighting court battles the GOP brought against them. And it was the same with the Green and Constitution partys to get on the ballot. Its hard to fund raise when you can't campaign…

Minimum wage it for minimum employees. A person should be able to work for any wage they want too without government interference.

What we need is a better voting system...like the Borda method. Then the 3rd party candidate most assuredly would have a chance....but for just that reason you'll never see it....the controlling parties not wanting a 3rd party to have any chance. Plus it's a bit difficult to count unless you are computerized. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Borda_count

Results Of Illinois Commodity Board Elections Announced

Roberta Dolbeare of Nebo now on Soybean Board

The Illinois Department of Agriculture today announced winners of the July 8 state commodity board elections.   

The elections filled positions on three boards:  the Illinois Corn Marketing Board, the Illinois Soybean Association Program Operating Board and the Illinois Sheep and Wool Marketing Board.

“Congratulations to those who were elected,” Agriculture Director Bob Flider said.  “It’s an honor to be chosen by your fellow producers to represent their interests when these boards decide how best to spend industry checkoff dollars.”

Checkoff dollars come from assessments levied at the first point of sale. State law sets the assessment for corn at 5/8 of 1 cent per bushel.  For soybeans, the rate is 1/2 of 1 percent of market value and for sheep and wool, it is 2 1/2 cents per pound. 

The newly-elected board members will serve three-year terms.  A list of the winners for each commodity board follows:
