As stupid does

To the Editor:

Forrest Gump said, “stupid is as stupid does.” This newspaper has written a lot about the condition of the state of Illinois, and I do agree with all its views and editorials.

Illinois is in bad shape. We are one of the most taxed states and our education system is a mess. We have more government than any other state.

We are broke, but Springfield keeps spending more.

McHenry County has 18 townships, yet we have 24 members on the County Board. Wait a minute, where did the other six come from? How did we get in such a mess?

Stupid is as stupid does.

The few people who do get out and vote continue to vote the same people back into office to do the same nothing that they did before. Those who don’t vote also are to blame. They’re too involved in their own little world, and they don’t care about what is going on around them.

People, you have to get out and vote.

We need smaller government. We need less spending. We need more people to write letters to editors. And if none of this comes about, stupid is as stupid does.
