So Scott Lee Cohen was apparently offered something by the Illinois Democratic Machine that he couldn't refuse to step down from being the ELECTED candidate for Lt. Governor in Illinois. What this is, is the most egregious usurpation of the democratic process that should cause the downfall of the Democratic party in Illinois and should spread its ripples throughout the country. It's part and parcel of what I've said before... the arrogance and attitude of the career politicians presently holding power in this country can only rival the arrogance of French aristocrats right before the revolution. From Barak 'Beta Dog' Obama, Pelosi, Reid, Durbin, and, more locally, Vislosky, Bayh, Michael Madigan, the Democrats feel that they can trample the Constitution and the Bill of Rights. The people are already angry but yet they just can't seem to stop themselves from trying to grasp just a bit more power not understanding or realizing that they themselves will cause their own downfall.
To paraphrase Princess Leia from Star Wars: The more they tighten their grips, the more states will slip through their fingers.
We are the citizens of the United States of America. We do not bow to any foreign princes or potentates nor do we bow or bend knee to those we have elected--they serve at the pleasure of the Citizens of this great country. They have forgotten this truth and need to be reminded.
