Sure it affects both sides....but it seems pretty lopsided. I have a cousin that refused to talk politics because she can't explain any of what she believes in. She worked on Obama's campaign but couldn't tell you why. And just like URKids on the Hester article disappeared when I started arguing his points. I'm actually quite convincable given enough facts to support a position.…

Hafta agree------I don't like Donald Trump, even think he's an A$$hole, but I gotta respect the way he says what he thinks and doesn't snivel, beg and apologize when people object.

If I worked in the judicial system I would feel duty bound to adhere to the innocent until proven guilty doctrine. As an ordinary system I feel I can pass judgement on this any time I want - just as I am NOT duty bound to agree with the decision rendered by a jury a.k.a. OJ Simpson.

Dillard wants to cut state gas tax

Gubernatorial candidate says move would provide $450 million in tax relief

Republican candidate for Illinois Governor Kirk Dillard wants to cut Illinois' sales tax on gasoline. 

Dillard said Illinois is one of 7 states that charges sales taxes at the gas pump. 

“I’m proposing that we cut the sales tax on gasoline, providing roughly $450 million in tax relief to families across Illinois,” said Dillard. “This provides relief too, to all business people and it invests a little bit of savings into repairing our roads and bridges.” 

Under Dillard’s proposal, estimates show that the revenue stream could support up to $1 billion of infrastructure improvements. 

A recent report found that 73% of Illinois’ major roads are in poor condition and over 2,000 Illinois bridges to be structurally deficient. 

The state received a D+ on its latest infrastructure report card.
