I should write a book about the many big things that I have done since 2000 -m Milton Township and DuPage County to promote direct election of Illinois Republican Party (IRP) State Central Committee (SCC) members and the many big adverse actions that past and present IRP chairmen and SCC members, DuPage County Republican Central Committee leaders, and Milton Township Republican Organization leaders have taken against me because of that including removing me from the 2024 IRP State Convention Platform and Resolutions Committee. I would focus on the aforesaid who fail/refuse to defend/advance the most planks in the Republican Party platform. Political parties exist to help elect candidates who can/will defend/advance their platform. The Republican Party platform is conservative. – Dave Diersen

Unanswered questions concerning the Illinois Republican Party (IRP) State Convention Platform and Resolutions Committee – Dave Diersen
— Who represents each of the 17 congressional districts on the committee and what is their contact information?
— Who has replaced me as the member who represents the 3rd Congressional District and what reasons have been given for my removal?
— At the IRP State Convention in Collinsville May 24-25, which committee members are going to vote on May 24 for the resolution that calls for direct election of IRP State Central Committee members?
— At the convention on May 24, which committee members are going to vote to strengthen or to weaken calls for promoting the following in the platform: personal responsibility, traditional marriage and family, right to life, enforcement of immigration laws including adding E-Verity, discouragement of booze, gambling, pot, and other vices, protection of Second Amendment rights, and equal opportunity (no race of gender based preference giving)?

— It’s Doers vs. Do-Nothings on the question of restoring direct elections for the Illinois GOP
(FROM THE ARTICLE: The SUPPORT camp is standing up for Republican voters and historic change. They are demanding that our vote be restored – a vote which never should have been stolen from Republican voters in the first place. And then there is the OPPOSE list. Empowering Republican voters is about the last thing the persons on that list have in mind. The idea of their Republican constituents getting energized and taking an active interest in how the sausage is really being made in our state party apparently terrifies them. No doubt for good reason. That is why the Illinois GOP’s state central committee has been holding their meetings basically in secret ever since a couple hundred angry peasants showed up to the state central committee meeting that was held shortly after the Illinois GOP’s disastrous election of November 2022 and rightly demanded resignations of top state party officials. To say our state party is grossly out of touch with the Republican voters it has a duty to serve would be a colossal understatement. When deadwood bosses aren’t disrespecting Republican voters and meeting in secret, they are actively and openly INVITING Democrats into our party (just check out the OPPOSE list). Republican primary voters need a broom to sweep out the deadwood. That broom is our vote. We need a vote again for the top officials of the Illinois Republican Party, the state central committee. . .The good news is we can give all Republican primary voters back their vote at the upcoming state convention on May 24 & 25 in downstate Collinsville. We can make the GOP relevant again in Illinois. That would be an historic event – but far from a radical one. We would simply be giving Republicans back their vote which never should have been stolen from them in the first place. If you haven’t already signed-on, we invite you to join the growing list of good people who are standing up for their fellow Republicans and their right to vote. Alternatively, if you think the only problem with the Illinois Republican Party is that Republicans are voting too much, we’re happy to add your name on the other list.)

(FROM THE ARTICLE: Securing an appointment to see a doctor in the United States is exacerbated by soaring health care demand and fewer doctors. Many specializations are increasingly affected by this trend, but primary care and emergency medicine are among the hardest hit. The average wait time to see a doctor has increased since 2017 and continued to rise after the demand spike brought on by COVID-19. A survey conducted by AMN Healthcare in 2022 of 15 large metro markets revealed the average time to see a physician was 26 days—an 8 percent increase from 2017 and a 24 percent spike since 2004.
Staff constraints are also felt in hospital emergency departments. Nearly 140 million Americans visited a hospital emergency department in 2021, based on data from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Of those, about 13 percent resulted in hospital admission; while thousands waited hours to see a health care provider. Consequently, many patients leave before being seen by a doctor.)
