Very briefly, the article told of criminal and other legal but still wrong actions with the intent of eliminating any other candidates in the governor’s race but Pat Quinn and Bruce Rauner.
As an Illinois resident, the powers that be only want you to have two choices for governor. You don’t like Pat Quinn, a member of the political party that has bankrupted the state, then vote for Bruce Rauner, a newcomer that most people wish they knew more about. You don’t trust Rauner or don’t like him, because he is super-rich, then you have Pat Quinn, who we all know very well. And we all know that he will continue to drive the state deeper into insolvency. He has already promised new government programs that we can’t afford but that we ‘really need’ like universal preschool.
The fact is we should have more than two choices for governor and any other office in the state. If any one candidate doesn’t receive a majority of the vote, then we need a runoff election. That’s expensive, so then we need to be able to vote in a way that allows second choices to be tabulated the first time, like having first and second choices on our ballots.
