Those who don’t understand

To the Editor:

Illinois is the 15th state to embrace the rights in the U.S. Constitution to treat people equally and to extend equal protection to all citizens under the law.

How sad for us in McHenry County that when this important issue was being decided, my representatives in the state legislature, Rep. David McSweeney and Sen. Dan Duffy, stood up to be counted with those who would prevent people from enjoying the fullrights of an American citizen.

Thankfully there are enough of those in the Legislature that understand the real meaning of being an American and what freedom really entails. Hopefully, at the next election, we can all work to remove from office these representatives who support anti-American ideals.
