I live in IL. Had I voted, Senator Durban would still be Senator Durbin.
Had I voted, would I have chosen to “tell” Rauner to tell me what do to? I don’t need him or any other asshole to tell me what to do.
When you vote, do you recognize openly that you are consenting to have whoever “wins” the election tell you what to do and what not to do, on pain of being robbed (a fine) or caged (imprisoned) or murdered (cops carry guns, after all)?
I don’t consent to any of this. Metaphorically, I live on a block controlled by a vicious criminal gang. My neighbors support the gang and the gang extorts money from me to “protect” me from arsonists and competitors from other gangs. They send someone around to sweep my street once in a while, but overall the extortion I pay is multiples of what I could pay someone in a competitive, free marketplace to do what it is I need done (like pave the roads, educated the kids, and suppress the muggers, rapists and robbers who DON’T wear gang-insignia badges.)
