True Colors

Democratic sleeper agent Mark Belling has carried out the operation for which he has spent years establishing himself as a conservative talk radio host in Milwaukee. He has called upon his listeners to vote the Republican State Legislators out of office because they "aren't conservative enough". He is then going to resume his cover, and when the Democratic Legislature passes the Taxing Body Protection Act, a few common-sense gun safety laws, and formalization of voting rights for Illinois public service union members, he will abuse any caller who does not use the correct phrasing to agree with him how horrible all this is.

Well-put. I'm sick of hearing people argue that we're going to fix things by voting out Republicans. Voting out Mary Panzer was an effective way of bringing change. However, if Mary Panzer had won the primary, voting for the Democrat wouldn't have changed anything.

Whether or not we like the moderates, I'm not sure how many people really understand how important it is to be able to have a majority and chairmanship of the committees in the legislature. Without that, it doesn't matter what you want to get passed, it'll get blocked in committee.

sigh once again he looks around longingly for a viable third party but doubts that will ever happen.

what has to be done is change the party at the primary level by voting republicans out for conservatives but once you get to the general elections there can only be one choice the GOP the lesser of two evils at the moment. Joey pretty much nails the reason why.
