Illinois Governor Candidate Cheryl Erickson Puts Illinois Small Business Owners First

Updated: Dec 13, 2021

America has always been the land of opportunity. For centuries, people have come to America with the hopes of starting a new life and seizing all of the opportunities that the country presented them with. Small business is the backbone of the American dream. With each small business that opens it gives the American dream a push towards success.

Small business development dates as far back as the 1600s, when Americans would trade crops, supplies, and services. As the nation itself was developing, all businesses were small at that time. Transportation was extremely slow, and banks had not yet been established. America was still working out the groundwork for such things, including taxes.

In the 1800s, after the nation become independent, small businesses really began to boom.

As America grew, so did its small businesses. With the development of small businesses in the 1970s and 1980s, America was able to prove their stability and we as Americans can not ignore the effect that small businesses have had on America: After all, every major corporation in the country today had to start small.

Now, with the current situation with the Socialist Communist playbook of the Democrats and with small businesses being the lifeblood of capitalist, freedom-loving America ever since the United States became a country, it is no coincidence that small-business owners have become the No. 1 target of the socialist Democrats who want to destroy this country.

The Socialist Democrats like JB. Pritzker and Joe Biden are setting out to exterminate the small businesses with draconian lockdowns, mandates, and unfair taxes. The war on small businesses started last year during the lockdowns, when small businesses across the country were ordered closed while Walmart, Amazon and big-box stores were not only allowed to remain open but were able to reap huge profits at the expense of their much smaller competitors.

In Democrat-controlled states, such as California, New York and Illinois, these lockdowns have been in place for an entire year but it has shown that after months it is proven lockdowns don’t work.

Democrats are far too eager to keep small businesses closed claiming it is due to the spread of COVID therefore they are eliminating gatherings to stop the spread, yet the border crisis is not being addressed and the small businesses and the people are struggling for the Democrats mishandling of the Border Crisis with COVID infected illegals coming across into the country.

Now all the rules and the “We need to stop the spread of COVID” doesn’t apply to big-box stores, it also didn’t apply to Black Lives Matter and Antifa protests in which small businesses were looted and burned to the ground. The rules didn’t even matter when to the Democrat leaders when a little old lady stood outside of her small business in hopes of saving it from rioters and ultimately was beaten senseless by the mob. That shows you just how much Democrats detest small-business owners and will go to great measures to shut them down.

Biden and the Democrats want to impose a hefty corporate tax on small businesses and then they want to raise the minimum wage. By raising the min wage, you not only push inflation through the roof, but you put a burden on the small business owner as they can not afford the increase in the min wage of what the Democrats want to raise it to. They won’t be able to pay their employees and pay for over head of the business as well. A $15 an hour wage will put small businesses out of business quick.

During these hard times, the chaotic times where the Democrats want to destroy the country and control the American people, we need to stand together and show them we are Americans.

We will not stand for their communist tactics.

We need to support small businesses and show them that the American Dream is still alive and well. If each of us spent $100 a year more on local businesses instead of chain stores and big-name online websites, it would put an extra $3 trillion a year into our economy, not only that but it would create hundreds of thousands more jobs.

When you buy from a small business, you’re not helping a CEO buy a third vacation home. You are helping a little girl get dance lessons, a little boy his team jersey, a mom put food on the table, a dad to pay the mortgage or a student pay for college. It has been said, every time you spend money, you’re casting a vote for the kind of world you want to live in, the kind of world that the American Dream is anchored to.

I will support small businesses, I will stand with them in pushing towards the American dream and standing up against the radical Democrats who care nothing about the people, just how much money they can line their pockets with and the control they feel they are entitled to over the people.

I want Illinois voters to know that I’m nobody special and that I am in their corner because I have always been where if I see a problem that needs to be fixed, I fix it. I believe Illinois residents have given the “experts” plenty of chances and opportunities to make Illinois a great place to live…and they have failed.

Pritzker's and all Democrats across the country time is up. They need to go.

Please come back to my website to listen to podcast episodes and read blog articles. You and will begin to expose the sinister nature of the book “Rules for Radicals” to educate and inform the people.

My campaign theme is: “I may no longer wear my uniforms, but I still work for the people.”

It has been far too long that the citizens of Illinois and around the country have been under the control of the communistic rule of the left. It is time for their voices to be heard so help me be that voice. Illinoisans will no longer be put in the corner!

Please help me stop the push towards communism in Illinois and the rest of America by donating to my campaign and getting up to date campaign messages by providing your contact information on my homepage.
