Filed earlier this month are two bills, specifically SB3142 and SB3414. The first will create the "Department of Returning Resident Affairs". Who are "returning residents", you ask? Former Illinoisans moving back from Kentucky? ...Soldiers returning from a war overseas?
It seems they are ex-convicts. I'm sorry, I used the wrong terminology. According to the bills, they are "justice-involved individuals". The bills would provide low to no-cost transportation and would provide what appears to be free housing... houses that have fallen behind in their property taxes would be the source of these homes for the "Justice-involved individuals"
If we are going to give people free houses and cars, why not our veterans or seniors or other hard-working non-justice-involved individuals that have been struggling to put food on the table and a roof over their heads and have had the decency to NOT cross the law.
I encourage you to read the bills and then call your Senators and State Reps and tell them what you think about the bills.
Illinois is the way it is because we, all of us, took our hands off the wheel and our eyes off the road for too long. Calculating political creatures took over our state and have pillaged our communities. When they ignored more than 80,000 witness slips against changing the "Right of Conscience act", they made it clear that they have no interest, in any interest, other than their own.
Ready to do something about it?
We can resign ourselves to live in their state, move, or fight. I don't know about you, but I don't want to live in a tyrannical, racist, lawless state, and I don't want to move. I've built my life here. My family is here. My history is here. And if I have anything to say about it, my future is here.
You are not alone. Not by a long shot. Join us.
We are one group of many across the state, and we are growing every day. Citizens and leaders from their communities coming together to answer the question, "Are you ready to take back your government?" If you are ready but just unsure about what you can do or how to do it, reach out to us. It's not too late and its never too soon.
