The ISU College Democrats endorsed Jenn Carrillo!
Do you know what the Progressive agenda is?
In short, socialism. Progressives want to force government to run everything because they do not believe in freedom, liberty, and capitalism.
They want to tell you how your property can be used. They want higher taxes because their wish list demands more money. They want to give your money to people who have less. They want open borders. They want ICE eliminated and illegals welcome and voting. I bet soon they will demand a local abortion clinic. Wait for it.
In short, progressives do not believe in America. They want to re-shape it how they want it. The Constitution is immaterial.
Another local progressive, Mike Matejka, was nice enough to tell voters in Normal who they should vote for. Since Matejka was a YES vote for the Coliseum, he is the guy not to listen to. He recommends: McBride, Lorenz, and Shields. https://www.pantagraph.com/opinion/letters/vote-for-mcbride-lorenz-shields/article_981fada1-f148-5567-a612-5bd71a4959ab.html
Tell your friends, unless you really want Venezuela here. Obviously Jenn should be avoided as well.
The ISU College Democrats prove why your kids are at risk at ISU. Real history isn’t taught. Neither is the results of what they claim they want. These kids will never understand that America has been the “shining City on the hill” since its founding. America worked hard to correct it’s errors and the world has flocked to our shores. They will never understand government is not the solution – it is the problem.
Since an arm of the Democrat Party is now endorsing candidates in a supposedly non-partisan election, from here on it should be clear local elections are anything but non-partisan.
