Paul McKinley on Politichicks: We need a corruption ban in Chicago

Paul McKinley on Politichicks: We need a corruption ban in Chicago

Politichicks TV interviewed Paul McKinley a few weeks ago at CPAC, and have just published the video. McKinley didn’t hold back, covering everything from the gun ban to New York’s Bloomberg and his attempts to buy the election. “They’re using the violence to say that they want a gun ban, but when are we going to have, Mr. President, a corruption ban in the city of Chicago,” said McKinley.

One of McKinley’s core points is the truth that Democrats cannot acknowledge, that it is impossible to blame Republicans or the Tea Party for the devastation of the community. They haven’t been in power for 60 years. He also reiterated that he’s a conservative, and won’t bend on principle, saying “We’re too far in the middle now, and every time you move to the middle, you find yourself in their aisle.”

Politichicks took note of a few of his McKinley-isms below the video, although they didn’t mention my favorite, that he’s running for the “Broke, Busted, and Disgusted.”

McKinley’s core points is the truth that Democrats cannot acknowledge, that it is impossible to blame Republicans or the Tea Party for the devastation of the community.

That statement is 100% correct. It’s a contributing factor in why much of the daily violence here goes unreported. Aside from a few, gunned down, innocent bystanders that make national headlines, typically for political points, most shootings, murders, etc… receive nothing more than a few paragraphs in the local papers. Most simply do not care.

For example: did anyone hear about the 7 who were shot at a nightclub last week during a rap concert? Probably not, because the ones doing the shooting and the ones who were shot were all male + black + gangbangers.

Maybe Mr McKinley can help connect the dots. (60 years of progressive policies + the destruction of neighborhoods and families)/(rampant gang affiliation + drug use) = high violence and murder rates.

It is dissociation of risk which causes corruption. It is dreams of material, physical, and ego instant (or immediate) gratification which motivates its progress.

McKinley can begin to address corruption by breaking monopolies and ending monopolistic practices. He should continue with reminding everyone, from the richest to poorest, that the causes of corruption are dreams of instant or immediate gratification, through redistributive and retributive change, through fraud, and through promises exceeding the known constraints of reality.

    It is GREED which causes corruption. Disassociation of risk is what ALLOWS it to flourish.

      Does power corrupt or do the corrupt seek power?

      I’ll consider it a paradox.

      It is a material, physical, and egoistic greed, and it is distinguished from normal needs and desires by it temporal character and process of fulfillment. The character of corruption is what makes it notable and severely caustic.

        Your usual excellent post!

          There is a fine line which we must follow in order to reconcile individual dignity and natural imperatives (and constraints). It is important that our analysis be as comprehensive as possible in order to realize an optimal compromise.

          The overriding concern with any compromise is that progressive corruption is controlled. Whether corruption is a property of nature or nurture is interesting, but we may be incapable of distinguishing between them.

          Life is an exercise in risk management. The goal, according to our national charter, is to optimally manage risk while preserving our unalienable Right to Life, Liberty, and the pursuit of Happiness.

I predict a corruption ban will work as well as the gun ban has in Chicago.

What do you call Chicago without corrupt government? Anarchy.

“…every time you move to the middle, you find yourself in their aisle.”

That’s so darned good I’m going to have to borrow that.

Ms. Sorock: any polling in IL-02 lately?
