The real question is how long before Chicago looks just like Detroit. Part of Chicago already look like Detroit. However, much of Chicago is still quite beautiful. Will Chicago start to empty as quickly as Detroit did? Will the next Chicago Mayor be as left as Rahm but as black as Obama?

When Rome fell it went from a city of over one million to a small town of twenty thousand and stayed that way for a millennium. Is that the future of the once great American Democrat run cities and America as a whole?

Chicago has one gigantic advantage over Detroit: it is the largest rail transportation hub in the USA. So much so every railroad is spending huge sums of money to upgrade the rail lines in the metropolitan Chicago area to expedite goods transport through the city. And Chicago has a vibrant financial sector, expecially in commodity futures trading.

I certainly can't claim to read the future, Jim from C-Town, but have a hunch the collapse of the leftist extremist oligarchy will come sooner than later and prove decisive rather than protracted. How soon will our restored constitutional republic recover? I'd guess that will depend on the number of innocent lives lost during the oligarchy's reign and collapse. Even wild shot in the dark guesses are beyond me.
