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

Frese, Brady discuss 2nd Amendment in Macomb, Galesburg

2 years ago by Bob Gough

Republican State Senate candidate Randy Frese appeared with Sen. Bill Brady (R-Bloomington) in Macomb and Galesburg as they discussed 2nd Amendment rights.

"The first bill I will propose as senator representing the 47th senate district will be for conceal and carry," Frese said.  "It’s important to our district for several reasons.  One being is that a great deal of this district is rural.  A call to the sheriff could result in a delay of a reaction if immediate services were needed.  People need to be able to protect themselves, their home, and their property.  Law abiding citizens will follow the gun laws that are set into place.  That’s the bottom line.  Preventing people from concealing and carrying is not only detrimental to their safety and security, but also denying them a fundamental right that has been enacted by 49 other states.”

Frese says he's been hearing from members of the NRA in the 47th District about further proposed anti-gun legislation that is coming from Chicago

“The idea that the Cook County Board President is discussing plans to tax ammunition as a way to prevent people from using guns illegally is not only troubling, but also irresponsible," he said.  "We shouldn’t tax law abiding citizens under some misguided notion that criminals will suddenly stop committing crimes because we’ve written a new law.  This is a bad solution to a problem that predominately applies to Cook County, and we need to elect officials that are able to work independently of the Chicago Machine.” 

 

 

Senator Bill Brady alsoweighed in during the discussion.  “Randy’s ideas and work ethic will make him an important addition to the senate.  He will work hard not only for gun rights, but also on getting the budget under control and bringing jobs to Illinois,especially western Illinois.  I look forward to working with him and am proud to support his campaign for senate.”
