    Hopefully one day all states and people of the USA will have true freedom.

    I'm experiencing this very unfamiliar feeling of pride for the state I live in....it's new to me...but I think I like it.

    Our Question 2 was defeated. It was regarding holding a Constitutional Convention (which many realized was a back door to defeating same gendered marriages).

    IL went for Obama naturally, but what was interesting is that the county I live in has never ever gone for a demoncratic president never mind senators, reps, etc. and yesterday the county was totally democratic!!

    IL also voted NO for a Constitutional Convention which they say would have cost upwards of $80 :rolleyes008:

    Do you think that was because he's an Illinois man or just general malaise with being republican?

    I think it was pretty much both reasons, although IL usuallly ends up supporting which ever democrate is running anyway. It's still the old Chicago politics that run the state even though they say those days are over now :rolleyes008:

    It also seems that from what they were saying on this morning's local news that a larger than normal number of people of color voted yesterday (especially in Chicago) that had never bothered to vote before.
