Rauner fighting for a common sense budget in Illinois
Illinois has suffered mismanagement for years, which is why finally the state managed to elect a Republican Governor, Bruce Rauner. It’s budget time in Illinois, and the Governor is pushing for some common sense ideas (enact reform instead of passing yet more tax-and-spend bills). The radicals are angry, so he deserves some support on this.

Forcing Healthcare Providers to Violate Conscience
Despite having the legal authority for a life-ending service, abortion supporters/promoters are less than happy. As has been seen recently, a NARAL-supported bill in the California legislature, known as AB775, would dramatically affect crisis pregnancy centers. Although its name is “Reproductive FACT Act”, the reality is that the bill is a one-sided attack on CPCs, and would require they promote abortion or face fines. While | Read More »
Mike Flynn For Congress
‘s Peoria, IL based congressional district is vacant after his resignation. Darin LaHood, who is the son of President Obama’s former transportation secretary, is seeking Schock’s seat as a Republican. He’s received money already from the left-wing Republican Main Street Parternship.

Illinois Governor Bruce Rauner Primed for a Showdown with Unions
Up in Wisconsin, Governor Scott Walker has shown it’s possible to take on unions, including government unions, and live to tell the tale, and in large part because of his courage, he is now being considered as a Presidential candidate. It looks like his neighboring governor to the south, Bruce Rauner of Illinois, wants to follow in his footsteps. Rauner is one of the many Republican | Read More »
How Bruce Rauner (R, GOV-ELECT, Illinois) can instantly become a Republican rock star.
I certainly hope that that gets his attention. Or that of his staff. Either will do. Anyway… once upon a time, in the far-off year of 2004, there was a Republican candidate for Illinois Senator called Jack Ryan. Ryan was widely considered to be an excellent replacement for retiring Republican Senator Peter Fitzgerald… right up to the point that the Chicago Tribune got tipped off | Read More »
