Tomorrow will be a disastrous day for our country. Close to 50% of the population will despise whoever is elected.
The results are immaterial.
We are powerless to do anything about it.
Quit stressing about things you have no control over!
The D.C. and Springfield clowns all came from local government.
You can reform your local government!
Good people rarely run for local office and very few citizens bother to vote in local elections. Local government has an easy time controlling the compliant sheep who have forgotten government’s job.
Do you want to run your own life or have government tell you what you are going to pay for?
(tax breaks for friends of government, a downtown hotel in Bloomington that will put others out of business, entertainment at your expense whether you participate or not, bike lanes on busy roads, government controlled development, higher taxes, . . .)
The first step is getting people who know local government is destroying the local economy – just like Springfield did to Illinois – to run for office. The good people are usually too busy running their own businesses to run themselves. Sacrificing for a better future must be too much to ask. So far a few have come forward, more are needed.
Your vote tomorrow for president is close to meaningless. Clinton and Trump must know Hillary wins Illinois, nobody even campaigns here.
Your vote in April can throw progressives out of office in both Bloomington and Normal. Electing Mayors who know what government’s role should be will stop theft by taxes and government-funded development at your expense.
Both cities will have these mayors on the ballot. The rest is up to citizens. It takes hard work to inform the citizens and get them to the polls.
Quit stressing about tomorrow, start working for real reform the day after tomorrow.
