He came out in support of gay marriage and amnesty. Now if he had run on those positions, do you think he would have gotten republican support?
So that's the test for you? As long as someone is against gay marriage and amnesty they have your vote?

Amnesty? Are you talking about the immigration bill? The answer is, Yes. Because a heckuva a lot of small to mid size IL companies employ people with questionable documents. Without that workforce the companies don't operate. The big Ag' companies like DelMonte rely on migrant workers.
There would be less paperwork, a more stable workforce with immigration reform.
Gay marriage was not on any politicians radar in the Midwest in 1980. After he was elected and showed his stuff in his 1st term, he was running on his record.
I'm not talking about immigration reform, I said amnesty. Maybe if Illinois companies didn't hire so many "questionable" workers, Illinois wouldn't have 10% unemployment.

It would be a start, but those aren't the only two issues I'm concerned about.

LW2: Probably married. And if he isn't, you wouldn't want a part of that family anyway (for yourself and ESPECIALLY for your daughter). But he is probably married.

Kirk is a liberal. He did the ol bait and switch to get elected. And he only has half a working brain...
Well, that's half more than you.

That's kind of you, Mimi. But with Dog, it's like shooting fish in a barrel ;-)
