  1. The insane and oppressive taxes in Illinois are enough to make
    anyone depressed, not to mention all of the DEMOCRAT corruption.

  2. And the impact on 2nd amendment rights will be?

    First they came for the guns of those veterans diagnosed with PTSD.

    Next they came for the guns of those on social security who had selected someone to oversee their financial affairs.

    Next they came for those diagnosed with depression?

    Slippery slope?

  3. Questioning is on the ball. Stay away from these clowns. They are up to no good, whatsoever.

  4. Honest Abe,

    Are we obtuse at all?

    Its only the Democrats that are corrupt?

    Thats the great thing about being part of the Republican party…

    It doesn’t matter how bad you suck or how corrupt you are, the troops will always rally for you…

    Just because..

  5. I’m wondering why there are any normal people left in Illinois!

  6. What is “normal” anymore?

    We do know that for every Democrat leaving the state there are approximately six Republicans leaving.

    So, out of what’s left, what is normal?

  7. That’s right RickeyR, and there are a few other names he posts under too.

    His delusional rantings are what always betray him – MAGA !
