Speak Out

Daily Southtown (Sunday) - - OPINION -

Lo­cal vot­ers have fi­nally started to make a dent in get­ting term lim­its and Spring­field­wants to over­ride that. We truly are doomed.

Cha-ching. Illi­nois law­mak­ers are talk­ing about a sub­stan­tial gaso­line tax. Af­ter all, we haven’t had an in­crease in years. We might not have had one on gaso­line but on about ev­ery­thing else. We are among the most heav­ily taxed states in the na­tion. Like so many other rev­enues ear­marked for specifics, it will end up some­where else. Re­mem­ber the lot­tery? Gov­ern­ments at all lev­els have no grasp of money man­age­ment or wise spend­ing and make no ef­fort to even try. But they have no qualms about ask­ing for more.

Head­line: Illi­nois de­clines in pop­u­la­tion for fifth straight year. Peo­ple are not just re­lo­cat­ing to­warmer cli­mates, they are mov­ing to In­di­ana andWis­con­sin too. Cook County is the cul­prit for these loses. Our Land of Lin­coln over decades has mor­phed into the land of lib­er­als.
