Cellphone law would make state a nanny

text size: AAA

Question: What do Julie Andrews, Juliet Mills, Fran Drescher and the Democrat-led Illinois state government all have in common? Answer: They've all played the role of nanny.

Now the Democrat-led Illinois state government wants to ban the use of cellphones when driving. Does the government really think that the citizens of Illinois are that inherently stupid that we don't know when we can and when we shouldn't use a cellphone when we drive? If Democratic Gov. Pat Quinn signs the proposed bill into law then I guess the answer would be "yes."


Whether he signs it or not, the fact that the bill made it this far means it's time for a change in leadership in Illinois and to get the state off our backs and out of our everyday activities. Your citizens are not stupid, Springfield, You're just trying to make them that way.
