    I am going to put this in big bold type so that hopefully it will sink in to you....

    A Hundred years ago!

    Now, tell me what demo's have done there to reverse that?

    Dem's have done nothing. They've continued to maintain the status Quo put in place 100 years ago by Republicans and organized crime. If it ain't broke don't fix it.

    So, you think graft, corruption, and this kind of politics is the way to do things eh? Very telling.

    It's the way it is here. My local Alderman is even a shady dude. Last week he was at the train station passing out donuts and fishing for signatures to get on the ballot for re-election. I was thinking "yeah right, the ones He doesn't collect He'll just forge".

    How can you be fine with that? I mean even as a liberal and me a conservative, I don't think that this kind of corruption gives your party a good name these days...

    First off, It's not "My Party" I'm an independent and vote Republican if I like where they stand on the issues. I love Chicago, but it's like loving a Woman with a bad Drinking problem and a black eye.
