Restoring respect for individual voters and traditional American values.

Cook County voting machine problems

A Republican voter in Schaumburg checked how his ballot was registered.

He had voted straight Republican, but the voting machine registered it as straight Democrat.

They ran it again, with the same result. The election judge claimed it might be a "calibration error".

There were similar allegations in 2010 when these machines were used in Nevada to elect Harry Reid.

These machines should not be approved for use in federal elections, but are still used in Cook…

Obituary for Jack Roeser

Many Barrington area conservatives knew Jack Roeser, or knew of him, as a tireless champion of limited government  and the reform of the Republican Party to fight for conservative principles and values.

He will be missed.  It is a shame that he did not live to see the struggle of many decades won.

His obituary is repeated here for reference by those who may have missed the news and funeral (June 17).
