My name is Zack Teague, I write about current events that effect central Illinois, the state of Illinois and the United States, its' people and our commons. Regular segments on Justice and Democracy as well as their counterparts Injustice and Oppression can be found in the Tabs above. I believe that our American society can and should evolve, that our potential has not yet be reached and that it is the duty of the people, against injustice and oppression to continue the fight for freedom and justice in this country.
