What King Solomon writing presents a clue of the probable outcome of the March 20 Primary Elections?
Illinois is ranked 49th in the nation of best and worse States. In other words, Illinois has issues that need to be addressed with candidates that have viable proposals to solve what ails Illinois.
When the righteous thrive, the people rejoice; when the wicked rule, the people groan. (Proverb 29:2)
What’s My Point?
Being 49th in ranking is causing a lot of groaning in Illinois. Whether the root cause is related to righteousness in leadership making either right, or moral political decisions, there is a lot of groaning going on by voters, in my opinion.
Three articles in the Chicago Tribune today are clues Illinois voters might want to consider before they vote.
One – John Kass’s reminder from the Godfather’s advice,
“Never hate your enemies, it affects your judgement, Michael Corione.
Two – Rick Pearson’s reminder “that Trump isn’t on Tuesday’s ballot.”
In other words, since Illinois voted approximate 3 to 2 million against Trump in the last election,, they obviously believe that by bringing up Trump in their political advertisements, they stand to persuade more Illinois voters mathematically to vote for them.
Question – Are they doing so because they have nothing else right to offer voters to solve Illinois problems than to hate Trump?
Three – Clarence Page advice that “Democrats have to offer voters something – someone – to vote for.”
In My Opinion
What the candidates should be offering, especially incumbents, are their proposed solutions how they will dig Illinois out to the bottom ranking of States in Illinois.
Term limits was tried and failed by some technicality. Even if it passed, I doubt Illinois Legislators will ever vote to approve it because it might end their lifetime being incumbents in office once they get elected.
Cook County has a non-binding referendum to approve legalized recreational marijuana. As if adding more drivers a choice when driving on the roads to kill themselves and innocents in addition to alcohol is a solution to end crime and money problems in Illinois.
Sadly, in Illinois, I predict,
Also, in my opinion, after the Primaries in Illinois, the results will prove the wisdom of King Solomon will be repeated again and again because of the 7000 separate governing bodies in the State, the most by far of all States in Nation, and the continuing roadblocks for term limits in Illinois.
According to a gloomy wise King Solomon Ecclesiastes verse written 3000 years ago, yet proven accurate time after time in history, when it comes to vote outcomes in Illinois, this will be the end result.
What has been will be again, what has been done will be done again there is nothing new under the sun. (Ecclesiastes 1:9)
In other words, as long as Illinois keeps voting for the same incumbents, Illinois will abide by King Solomon’s wise gloomy verse prediction and continue on the same course to remain on the bottom rankings in comparison to other States in the Nation.
Read the columns in the source links and previous posts about the above issues before you vote, and then decide before you vote for the future political leaders in Illinois.
