Too many metro-east residents are voting the straight party line rather than using common sense. Such unbending, blind patronage will continue bringing back the same Chicago-controlled corrupt thugs who are eroding our moral direction, plus bankrupt Illinois and the nation.
This ignorant loyalty to the party will, ironically, produce the devastating conditions that those same voters actually oppose. On goes the faithful who blindly follow the party line.
Wake up, metro-east voters. and smell the ongoing corruption.
