"For those who would suggest that we move. Things are never that simple. Jobs, property, family ties etc."
Illinois is that liberal? I always think of the Northeast, Kalifornia, Washington and New York.
As far as moving I find it difficult to fathom, all of our ancestors (Short of coming from England) were born, raised and died here.
It seems wrong to me to be forced out by a bunch of nanny state socialists, why can't I live where I have the mountains, the beach, the change of seasons?
Until I can no longer afford to pay the bills I will not leave this land I love so very much.
“Illinois is that liberal?”
Chicago and Springfield are definitely liberal. And such hell holes as Madison and St. Clair Counties are downright communist (they firmly believe that government is everything, and that government can never be too big or too intrusive). It is no coincidence that Madison and St. Clair Counties are listed as judicial hell holes, as the major means of earning money there is through filing lawsuits.
