A shot across the bow...

In an amazing shift of public sentiment, less than one year after a massive Obama win, New Jersey and Virginia elected Republican governors yesterday.

Illinois Legislators be on notice, a similar fate may very well be in store for you. Note the premier issues on voters minds in New Jersey: High property taxes, unemployment, corruption. Sound familiar? Only last week Democratic Illinois legislators enacted changes in campaign finance reform with only one exemption: THEMSELVES!

New Jersey should be a blinking red hazard light for any legislator that puts their own ambitions before the welfare of their state. No matter the degree of your arrogance, no matter how cushy you feel in your incumbency, no lawmaker is exempt from complete voter repudiation. We can only pray that Illinois will be next.
