Homer/Lockport Tea Party Voter Guide

This election is at pivotal point in our country’s history and the balance of power in Springfield and Washington needs to be changed. Some of our endorsements are not what we consider to be ideal tea party candidates but we are working with what we have to bring us closer to our mission as a tea party; lower taxes, limited government and capitalism as the economic engine of this country. We also feel that 3rd party candidates will not be able to win this election cycle, with all that in mind along with our straw poll results we made the endorsements you will find on the back of this page. And on Nov 3rd we will be ready to hold whoever gets elected accountable for every vote they cast.

Amending the Illinois Constitution to allow recall of an elected Governor sounds good at face value. The way the amendment is written it would be extremely difficult to implement should a recall be deemed necessary. That is why we recommend a NO vote on this Amendment. If we pass it now, and see that it is totally useless, it will be extremely difficult to go back and amend an amendment. With a new state legislature in 2011, the proposal can be addressed again, and perhaps a more realistic amendment question can be placed on the 2012 ballot.

US Senator (unexpired term) – Roland Burris was appointed to Barack Obama’s former senate seat. No special election was ever held; therefore, you will vote for US Senator in two sections on the ballot—once for the new six year term, and again for the remainder of the current term. This means the winner for the unexpired term will take Obama’s old seat immediately on Nov 3. Vote for Mark Kirk. This will help block Pres. Obama from passing bills like “Cap & Trade” in a lame-duck session.

US Senator – we realize there isn’t much difference between Mark Kirk and Alexi Giannoulias, but please understand, electing Mark Kirk helps take away the majority from Democrats, and if the Republicans regain control of the Senate then more conservatives would regain leadership positions and committee chairmanships currently held by liberal Democrats—that is the difference between voting for Alexi Giannoulias and Mark Kirk.

Governor – Bill Brady must be elected. Bill Brady is an example of the American dream and just for that alone the man deserves credit, along with our votes. Business owners know what it takes to operate within their means—to sell a product, collect money, pay vendors, and make payroll. Business owners know how to control and cut spending, and how to efficiently run an organization with teamwork and leadership. Pat Quinn doesn’t understand this—nor has he ever done this.
