Along with all the problems we know Illinois presently have, there is a problem at the Federal level that makes all our State’s problems insignificant in comparison. It’s the fact that the Federal Government no longer is constrained by the Constitution. The Federal Govt was never meant to be as intrusive as it presently is. The States were to have the power that was intentionally left out of the Constitution (reserved to the States or the people), but the Fed has usurped States’ rights and taken those powers for itself. We live under Federal agencies that do not have the power to legislate – but they do every day. The EPA and IRS are particularly onerous as they bully businesses and individuals with the power of the courts to force us into submission. You, as a State representative (should you win election) have the responsibility to the State as a legislator, AND have the responsibility to retake the powers that the Fed has taken from us in Illinois. If you carefully look at Article V of our Constitution, it clearly states that STATES also have the ability to submit to Congress amendments to the Constitution to tame the Federal beast. The first I’d suggest is the repeal of the 17th Amendment. That amendment removed from the State Legislatures the selection of US Senators, and thus, removing from the States, the influence in Washington that they were intended to have. The US Senators were supposed to be representatives of the State Legislatures – not representatives of the populace…that’s what the House of Representatives are. With that 17th Amendment, the Senate became a 2nd “House of Representatives”. There are many more, but this is not the place for an essay. Please know that if you are elected, you’ll hear about this in more detail.
