Black Illinois Voters, we have to send a message to both major political parties and those malign third parties as well.

We are a force to be reckon with and we will use our vote to obtain fairness in government contracts, jobs and funds for schools in OUR COMMUNITIES - if you can afford to send your child some where else, that is simply an extra perk. But for those who cannot, demand quality educators and demand your children learn. DEMAND these things with the ballot!

If Quinn wants Sheila Simon as his Lt. governor, that is his PRIVILEGE to do so. NOW LET'S USE OUR PRIVILEGE AT THE BALLOT BOX TO DEFEAT QUINN & SIMON!! He did not want Art Turner, but let it be known WE WANTED Art Turner ON THE TICKET!!

I do not like voting for Republicans, especially after this heinous display of belligerence and obtuseness towards the Health Care Bill.

But I refuse to vote for Illinois Democrats in the upcoming Nov 4, 2010 Illinois election.

I don't have anything now, and I darn sure will NOT get anything from the Illinois Democrats if voting for any. I might as well play the POWER OF POLITICS GAME CORRECTLY!

No, the Republicans may not do anything for me either, but the Illinois Democrats have told me seven to eight months before the election "I DO NOT WANT YOUR MAN SECOND IN CHARGE, WHILE ALSO I WANT TO RAISE YOUR INCOME TAXES!!"

For Black Cook County voters, President Todd Stroger lost his bid to retain his seat because of a penny increase in taxes. We should be outrage!!

I DO NOT want Quinn or Simon hovering over my tax dollars with our children future continuously getting the short end of funding for schools.

STAND UP, BE STRONG, FIGHT THE GOOD FIGHT, BITE THE BULLET AND VOTE FOR THE INDEPENDENT, GREEN OR REPUBLICAN PARTIES!!

Stop allowing the black knucklehead politicians come to your churches on Sunday right before election begging for your vote. Express to your religious leader, it is not right for politicians to show up on Sunday when it is a day of worship and beg for votes and your communities still do not see changes.

Wake up! Be strong! Shake the status-quo up!! Vote differently!!

I will see you on the other side of the in November. And while on the other side let these parties know, if you slip up, your vote goes else where. We can create our own party such organizations which opposed Health Care! DO NOT STAY AT HOME OUT OF DISAPPOINTMENT!! Go Vote!!

But learn to play power politics!! And quit letting others express, "The game is always change when we get close!!" LEARN TO CHANGE IT BACK OR TO OUR BENEFIT!!!!

INDEED!! GO GREEN!!! DUMP THESE PEOPLE!!!
