David Ratiowitz is one of the few running for political office that shares my concern for the unsustainable entitlement systems, especially social security, and has an understanding of the proper relationship between the American citizen and it's Government as envisioned by our founding fathers!

Matt Reichel seems to be the only candidate actually running. He came to my house once and I have seen him at multiple festivals. I will vote for him because I feel like I know him and believe in everything he believes in.

He's the only one who isn't on a corporate agenda. Look at his campaign coffers.

Reichel is the only one that will uncompromisingly work to end the occupations of Iraq/Afghan (and the military welfare), while restoring priorities to us, We the People in the US. And, NO corporate sponsorship = no debts, strings, or favors that he owes to BigBiz, Wall Street, Big Oil, Insurance, et al.

I have been following Matt's bid for Congress for the last two years. Reichel will be a fighter for truth in the US House, that I am sure of!!!!!

David Ratowitz is the best candidate for the job

There is a reason the Libertarian party isn't running a candidate. A large number of them support Ratowitz. I do as well.
Wouldn't it be great to have another 'Ron Paul Republican' in the House?
Matt Reichel is of course a bleeding heart proggie, but if he supports concealed carry, legalization of cannibis and wants to lower regressive taxes (alcohol, tobacco etc) he would be my second choice.
Unfortunately even though he doesn't seem to actually be running Quigley will be 'given' this via incumbent inertia and 'the machine'.
An 'agent of change'? When given an actual chance Quigley bailed on 'Audit the Fed'.'Reformer' my a$$.
So sad..........

David Ratowitz is not a career politician. He is the only candidate running for the IL District 5 that has the experience of being a successful small business owner who understands how to create and sustain jobs. He also understands that our US Constitution correctly limits the powers (and size) of the federal government. Quigley has shown with everyone of his votes that he is a big government, big spender that does NOT understand how to create jobs.

Quigley voted for the Health Care Bill. He is TOTALLY out of touch with his district. I'm voting for David Ratowitz.

He's a GOPer. Enough said

Ratowitz embodies where the Republican Party should be - less spending, less intrusion into the private lives of citizens, fewer costly and ineffective social programs, lower taxes. He's an advocate for 2nd Amendment rights and speaks the truth about the multitude of government agencies that are simply a waste of taxpayer dollars.

David Ratowitz is the real reformer in this race. He has a lot of private-sector experience, and understands the role and function (and limits!) of government.

Illinois has arguably the most stupid voters in the country. How can anybody vote for a democrat after what happened the last two years?
