By: Diane Benjamin It is only a short time before McLean County will be taken over by Democrat Socialists. The Republicans are doing nothing to stop them. The GOP believes in working together.

Warning:

By: Diane Benjamin Do not attend upcoming state capitol protests.

What socialists do

By: Diane Benjamin The local (Democrat) socialists pretend they support the people. They don’t – they only want power. They will use that power to do what socialists always do, punish their enemies.

Tari is obviously a democrat

By: Diane Benjamin When Republicans are caught doing stupid things they mostly resign and slink away never to be heard from again.

Breaking news: Michael Cadena Wins

Voting for Democrats costs you money!

By: Diane Benjamin It should be obvious, but evidently too many people think government needs your money, so they vote democrat.
