What to do about money in politics? By Jim Nowlan The U.S. Supreme Court is considering whether to eliminate most or all limits on money in politics. If the court lifts the already porous lid on campaign expenditures by megabucks players on the Right and Left, we may see confirmation that America is largely run by an oligarchy of wealth.

OMG & WOW!!! Lake County is the 3rd largest County in Illinois. This morning, in the Lake County GOP Gubernatorial Straw Poll, with around 500 people in attendance, BRUCE RAUNER crushed his three opponents with 67% of the vote. This was truly a LANDSLIDE VICTORY for Bruce Rauner! The grassroots support that has grown for Bruce Rauner in such a short time, is reminiscent of the type of volunteer army Congressman Joe Walsh mustered together to defeat three term incumbent Melissa Bean in 2010. It was also very inspiring to see ex-Congressman Joe Walsh in attendance, among his many followers and supporters still. The vast majority of those supporters and campaigners for him voted for Bruce Rauner! Bill Brady received 12 votes, which was humiliating for him. Kirk Dillard and Dan Rutherford both received around 55 votes each. Bruce Rauner received nearly 260 votes…nearly 140 more votes than all of his opponents combined! This is pretty impressive considering his opponents have been in office for years and are well known in the state! The MOMENTUM is clearly on Bruce Rauner’s side.
