Recently it has been reported there are petitions in Illinois that would put a referendum on the ballot instituting a change to the state Constitution. The change would impose term limits for state politicians.
It's obvious there will be more than enough signatures to satisfy legal requirements. But, not to worry. As in every case in the past when the voters have tried to get a referendum on the ballot that politicians didn't agree with, they will find some politically connected judge to throw out the petitions because a T wasn't crossed, an I wasn't dotted or there is a name that is unreadable or questionable.
There is no way the powers in charge will let the people decide what is best for Illinois. Only the politicians are smart enough to make those decisions.
