“The manner in which we have been voting needs to change,” Wendy Pearson, an activist against Chicago school closings, told the room. “I’m here to say to you that we have been trained to vote in a specific manner… we need to start looking at the manner in which our elected officials have been voting… if they have not voted in a manner that is beneficial to you, yours, and your community, then you need to start voting them out.”
McKinley told the room, “Stop blaming just anybody for the violence in the city of Chicago. Blame the right people, not just white people, but the right people. Because it’s not just white folks a part of this, but it is on the fifth floor. The fifth floor took your schools, the fifth floor just took your jobs that he said that he gave to the ex-offender… and every single alderman was a part of this criminal process.”Methinks some neighborhoods aren't going to see any road service for awhile.
Here's the deal folks. Your 'representatives' are chosen for you. Even if you do manage to vote in someone you like, the 'leaders' of the party you primarily support will force them to drop out, just like Dick Durbin did in 2010. If you want to form your own 'Tea Party' like you claim, then plan to see lots of your relatives having 'accidents' and audits in your future.
That's the Chicago Way.
