Strange isn't it? Both Democrats and Republicans promise pretty much the same things.|
Both promise to increase well paying jobs, more opportunity, less corruption, and more value for our tax dollars. The problem for voters is there are different methods for achieving those goals.
In Rock Island County we have had at least two decades of trying to achieve those goals through Democrat leadership. It's the same in our state government. How is that working for you?
We can brag about the QCA having the lowest unemployment of any Illinois metro area at 6.6 percent, but when you remove Scott County's 4.3 percent from that average, Rock Island County is left with 7.8 percent unemployment. Jobs continue to slip across the river.
Today we have more corruption, graft, and higher taxes at all levels of Illinois government than ever before. When will it stop? Who has kept promises?
How do you change the attitude in Springfield by sending the same politicians there?
How do you change our county by electing people with the same ties to special interests every election?
Some bright person once said that the definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results. Yet that's what the voters in Rock Island County have been doing for at least two decades. The insanity will stop when voters decide it will stop.
Keep voting the same politicians into office, and that's the definition of insanity. The time for change is election day, Nov. 4.
