Richard M. Daley’s popularity has tanked

Chicago, IL—Perhaps it’s because taxes skyrocketed during a period of lavish spending, corruption and waste. Maybe it was that clandestine midnight raid to demolish the historic Meigs Field Airport on the lakefront or parking meter fiasco? Possibly it was because of the failed effort to turn the Olympic Games into a massive and unprecedented extortion and racketeering enterprise. Could it have been his un-American stand on Chicagoan’s right to self-defense that has put Mayor Richard M. Daley’s popularity in the toilet?

I know Daley miscalculated and misread Chicagoan’s desire to have a meaningful way to defend themselves, families and businesses with firearms. Perhaps the city should have conducted a poll on the issue rather dictating an unconstitutional ban. Dictators have never been big on polling their peons.

The Mayor and aldermen are quite happy that they and no other citizens can carry firearms lawfully. These guys are so insecure they don’t want law abiding Chicagoans to enjoy that absolute right. The truth is gun control have been exposed for decades as a costly failure. Gun laws and bans only victimize the law abiding and never the criminals.

With the ill-advised replacement gun ban the city has set up every cop for being personally sued for violation of civil rights under USC: 1983. The city will be paying out millions of dollars in court judgments if they dare try to enforce their new defective ordinance.

Daley is down to a 37% approval rating and more them half of Chicago’s voters want him permanently exiled. What a great time for a fiscally Conservative African-American who believes in gun rights to unseat the Daley/Burke Crime Syndicate.

Imagine taxes lowered and businesses enticed to return to the City That Used to Work? Imagine employment returning and the shuttered commercial and residential property thriving once again. That could happen but never under Richard M. Daley.

What does being African American have to do with being a fiscally conservative leader? Don't start getting politically correct on us now. I'd take any leader, white, black, brown, red or yellow, as long as they have the good of the people in their hearts.

Race should never be a requirement for public office. Chicago’s Blacks would never tolerate a Conservative White candidate. They’d all vote for anyone who is Black like them no matter what. That’s reality.

it's not 'political correctness', it's the reality of there being a huge number of voters who cast their votes solely on the basis of race, and that huge number, in this city are not white.


you may choose who you vote for based on the 'content of their character', but there are far more voters who make that choice based on the 'color of their skin'.

The fact is gerrymandering has made it impossible for any conservative to get a foothold in that city.

It's a sad shame but the city's voters ARE predominantly minorities. They won't vote for a conservative ever. Not today at least. Crime your right, they vote only by color. Period.

WE need an 'Obama' like stealth candidate to do the exact opposite as he pulled off. In other words, lie their a** off to get elected and pull the switcheroo. ;)
