Politics and Government IS Business
Matthew 10:16 NIV
I am sending you out like sheep among wolves. Therefore be as shrewd as snakes and as innocent as doves.
Wow, the day after JB Pritzker wins the Democratic Party ordained nomination for Illinois Governor, how ‘progressive’ Democrats line up to give it up and hail the new boss in town, meanwhile, getting nothing in return.
Don’t misunderstand me, I’m criticizing people I greatly respect and stand with generally. People with excellent ideas, speaking platforms and followers. However, no wonder the progressive movement dies a thousand deaths…
We speak out against corruption and the big money takeover of our political processes by multi-millionaires and billionaires, and then we cozy up to them to ‘win’, like what… like we think we are dealing with honorable people because now we are on their side?
Please wake up Chicago
People just don’t seem to get who they are dealing with. No one made millions or billions of dollars or protected inheritances of size by being nice fair people. This is a fact.
Sad, for decades I have worked in corporate America, frequently close to the CEOs or equity management structure. Stop believing marketing or public relations material. Politician images are nothing but manufactured projections. They are not real. If you are dealing with successful multi-million/billionaires, you ARE dealing with sharks!
Personally, I think the anti-government swell is bigger than they are and if the people ever got their act together and acted cohesively, a 3rd party would decimate their corrupt structure in one election cycle. Over half the Democratic Party primary voters did not vote for JB Pritzker, and beyond that roughly 75% of the rest of the voters didn’t bother or voted Republican.
Pritzker and Rauner as well, are at the disadvantage here if we don’t give it up for nothing.
Be open to talks, fine
But pretend you’re a business person for a minute, and don’t give it up before the negotiation has even begun. And with nearly 230 days until the General Election, there is plenty of time for a credible 3rd party candidate to surface. The people hold the cards here, unless of course, you fold without playing.
Demand an ENFORCEABLE commitment to a specific progressive agenda IF you are to support JB Pritzker, don’t just jump in the billionaire boat, geez… Or better yet, BISS for 3rd party if he hasn’t capitulated yet…
