If the rest of the state of Illinois has anything to say about it, this may be a reality sooner than later.
According to Senior Editor David Montanaro at Fox News, “Illinois Republicans are pushing a bill to separate Chicago from rest of state: Rural areas ‘not being equally represented.’”
“Illinois State Republicans have introduced a House resolution to turn the blue city into its own state. State Rep. Brad Halbrook, a co-sponsor of the bill said.”
“Some Illinois Republicans believe the state’s rural areas are not getting fair representation due to the city of Chicago’s outsized influence and are now pushing to separate the Windy City from the rest of the state.”
‘“The rural portions are not being equally represented,’ said Halbrook, lamenting onerous regulations on businesses and a ‘piling on’ of debt by Chicago.”
It’s happening all over our country.
These huge democrat dens of iniquity, like Chicago, LA, New York, Philadelphia, etc., just continue to operate stupidly and irresponsibly, and then expect the rest of their states to bail them out and feed their addictions to failed liberal policies.
Then these “sanctuaries for illegal immigrant criminals” and “centers of sophistication” turn around and call the people who are expected to support their habits “deplorables,” uneducated, hicks, rednecks, or worse.
Well, the “fly over” enablers have just about had it, and they’re sick of picking up the bill for these unappreciative fools and their “war zones.”
“On ‘Fox & Friends’ Monday, State Rep. Brad Halbrook (R) explained that in many states, including New York, California and Illinois, ‘large population centers’ dominate state politics.”
‘“The goal is to form a new Illinois,’ he told host Steve Doocy, explaining that the proposal — which has virtually no chance of passing — would call on Congress to declare Chicago the 51st state.”
“According to a new report by Pew Trusts’ Stateline, the resolution supported by Halbrook now has eight Republican co-sponsors in the state’s House, as well as growing support from conservative activists.”
Sooner or later these cities have to be reined in and held accountable.
Detroit had to learn its lesson the hard way (by going bankrupt), and it looks like there are more cities that are going to follow that same path.
“The bill notes a ‘$221 million bailout’ for the city’s pension system last year [and that’s just the tip of the iceberg], and says that ‘the majority of residents in downstate Illinois disagree with City of Chicago residents on key issues such as gun ownership, abortion, immigration and other policy issues.’”
So, basically, you can espouse whatever beliefs you want…, but put YOUR own money where YOUR mouth is…, not MY money.
These cities should not expect their states and the country as a whole to subsidize their foolishness.
Believe it or not, most of those red areas on the map have no interest at all in what goes on in those blue areas.
All we know is we want no part of it and we could care less.
My advice to the cities would be to “get over yourselves,” and stop managing your expenses like drunken sailors!
Democrats should maybe spend more money financing their idiotic policies then they do their inept candidates.
Because the “gravy train” is about to run head on into “The Trump Train” baby!
