    == “I don’t see a lot of voter enthusiasm,” ==

    The question is who will low turnout help the most? My guess is the GOP. There will likely be some races closer than expected.

    ==My guess is the GOP.==

    I would go the other way in IL, given the organizational advantage Illinois Democrats enjoy.

    Nationwide, I suspect low turnout benefits Republicans more, but also nationwide we’re not seeing low enthusiasm.

    “Vrett said education about guns needs to be brought back to schools so students can learn to respect weapons and rules, such as keeping them under lock and key.”

    I see this sentiment a lot on gun freak reddit, which is full of men whose lives revolve around their guns - upgrading their guns, taking pictures of their guns, and hysterically worrying about mostly non-existent attempts to regulate their guns. Our kids are coming out of 2 years in which the pandemic interrupted their education severely, so let’s have them spend classroom time learning about safely handling the guns most of them will never choose to own?

    One of the underrated realities of American life is that once you become a gun owner you start to get inundated by guns uber alles nonsense like this, and a lot of people are too dumb to think their way out of it. It’s an intellectual black hole, where maximally expansive individual gun rights are somehow the central tenet of modern civilization.

    = Instead of answering the question, Bailey changed the subject, =

    That’s not a bug, that’s a feature.

    “Detractors call it a power grab by organized labor that will raise the cost of government and, therefore, property taxes.”
    So detractors are saying that local government employees are underpaid and that’s okay?

    Myself I’m wondering what happens when thousands of Chicago voters go to their “regular” polling places Nov 8 and they’re all told to go somewhere else. I can’t think that’s gonna help Democrats.


  7. - Teacher Lady - Thursday, Oct 27, 22 @ 9:57 am:

    More than 70 Republican candidates in competitive congressional and gubernatorial races across the country declined to denounce Alex Jones for popularizing the myth that the Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting never happened.

    Scary. If a candidate is unable to even state that junk like this is BS, what do they actually stand for? If they don’t stand for denouncing obvious lies, what other idiocy do they believe in?

    “Chicago voters go to their “regular” polling places Nov 8 and they’re all told to go somewhere else. I can’t think that’s gonna help Democrats”

    Cook should follow Dupage’s example and allow voters to go to any polling place on election day. No need to find a home precinct. Super convenient plus you can get away from the prying eyes of neighbors/friends/enemies that may be local judges/poll watchers.


  9. - Local Gov Emp - Thursday, Oct 27, 22 @ 10:25 am:

    I’m a Democrat and did not vote for Amendment 1. I fully support private unions, but do not think public employees (especially in local government, which I work) should unionize. If it passes and property taxes go up as a result I can almost gurantee we will unionize to afford the increased costs. Sure it just adds to the problem, but this is Illinois and that how things go.


  10. - Arsenal - Thursday, Oct 27, 22 @ 11:13 am:

    ==but do not think public employees (especially in local government, which I work) should unionize==

    But they already do.

    =Vrett said education about guns needs to be brought back to schools so students can learn to respect weapons and rules=

    This is pure unadulterated laziness.

    The DNR hosts dozens of local hunter training courses that are focused on youth hunters and specifically instructs them on gun safety.

    If you are too lazy to look up a class date and time, then you don’t deserve to have a gun. Public schools are not here to be everything to everyone.


  12. - logic not emotion - Thursday, Oct 27, 22 @ 2:24 pm:

    Very hard to find DNR hunter safety classes and all students would benefit some gun safety knowledge. If the schools can afford the time to teach about some of the non-education related stuff they do, they could certainly do that too.
