Apparently the voting public will not be able to vote on a question of term limits in Illinois.
Boy am I surprised about that. Not really. Even if we got every registered voter in Illinois to sign off on this, it will never happen. And in Cook County, that would include the voting dead as well.
But what would happen if there were term limits? Well, there would be a lot of lobbyists that would be hurting. Imagine the cost of buying new politicians all the time, as compared to now when you only have to buy them once, with a few bucks added in every so often to keep them happy. These days, once you are elected, you are in for life or unless some other well-paying, do-nothing, government job comes along.
Who were those judges that didn't think I was wise enough to vote on this? And are they elected? I hope so. I will find out, and as always, I do vote.
It is my belief that if you don't vote, then you aren't allowed to complain about any politician.
