And when the next election rolls around in Illinois, I'm looking to them for technology and inspiration.
Don't kid yourself that the far left or the far right have gotten the message. They haven't.
We've got another election coming up, and I've got news for ALL the candidates:
- I really, really, REALLY HATE attack ads. Unless you've got proof positive that your opponent has broken a law, I don't want to hear what a scum-bag you think he or she is.
- I want to know what YOU believe in.
- I want to know what differentiates YOU from the rest of the crowd.
- I want to know when and where you've actually created legislature or where YOUR actions have made a difference.
- I want to know what new legislation you think you'll propose and why.
- I want to know what current legislation you oppose... AND WHY.
- I want to know how long you propose to serve, and why.

We've got three more years of President Chicken Little and his band of headless chickens who may be able to party, but will never have a clue.
Grab your own medulla oblongata. Stand up for what and who you know is right. Raise a stink when you believe you're seeing something wrong. Link to your evidence. Stand by your candidate.
Politics are changing, even as you read this. And that's an entirely beautiful thing.
