Illinois Senate Race

I'm just going to quote from the Chicago Tribune on our Libertarian candidate for the U.S. Senate:

'Libertarian Sharon Hansen, 63, a Pontiac innkeeper, also is on the ballot. She called herself "really pro-life" but said in some situations, an abortion early in a pregnancy might be appropriate. She called herself a "very strong supporter" of the Second Amendment but favors closing the "gun show loophole." She would not forbid the purchase of assault weapons "unless the person has a really bad background." Hansen, a Christian, said she believes in the biblical definition of marriage as a union between a man and woman, but added: "I don't have a problem with people of the same sex getting married if they want to." She does not favor a federal law allowing same-sex marriage and would leave the issues to the states. "The federal government has its nose in too many things as it is," she said.'

Well, you can't call her an ideologue!

According to all the polling, the race is in the bag for the Democratic incumbent. Both the major party candidates are quoted as doing some serious waffling on the gay marriage issue in particular.

The libertarian is all over the battleground.
But lots of folks are like that, I have found.
So her apparently inconsistencies may not deter
this concerned citizen from voting for her.
