    Regarding those endorsements of your candidacy from Nichols, Conanson and Meyerson; to most of the district's voters those endorsements and $2 will get them on a CTA bus!

    You chose to focus on single-payer health care, an issue that most district voters would need four or five months to fully comprehend, much less understand the significance of the differences between your position and that of your opponents.  In a campaign that only was two months long, that was a blueprint for diasater.

    Please remember that when the results come in tommorrow night and you find yourself hopelessly behind the front-runners.

    •  We won't shy away from a campaign on the issues (11+ / 0-)

      Others chose to campaign on mealy-mouth platitudes with little relevance to the daily lives of voters.  Given the frequency with which you've repeated the above mantra across any number of diaries, it's clear you made your choice long ago.  

      We all wish your candidate good luck.  This district is blessed with more than one qualified option.  For those who do want aggressive leadership on single-payer, etc, we feel that Tom makes the best choice.  -Gary

        I've been asking since the beginning of the campaign, but you've been shying away.

          There was a guy who called in today and got to talk to senior staff about this very issue.  Not sure if that was you, but, Tom does believe we need to reduce possession-related incarcerations. -Gary

            but certainly not the big-ticket item in your District. The CPD has largely ignored marijuana possession on the north side.

            At the Federal level, let's try Mandatory Minimum sentences?
            Rescheduling of Medical Marijuana? Agricultural Hemp?

            Plan Colombia? The Merida plan to further militarize the DrugWar in Mexico?

            Are you familiar with thre illegal ibogaine cure for addiction? (Study up after the Primary, http://ibogaine.org)
