“The slime pit that is Chicago will always negate the way the rest of the state votes.”
My Nlaws live in Decatur, so I drive down quite often. Last drive a radio station I was listening to had the main topic for over an hour of separating from Chicago.
Something along the lines of making Chicago it’s own state similar to D.C. - it was an interesting topic.
I do know that all down staters are basically beat and know that there’s nothing they can do to overcome Chicago. It’s really unfortunate.
MILWAUKEE JOURNAL TWEET:
Milwaukee calls in extra poll workers amid heavy Wis. recall turnout.
That's how all we folks living outside the I-495 belt in Massachusetts feel about Boston!
Yep and it happens every election. I do my duty and go vote in every election knowing it will do no good. But still, I do. In my area Dems run unopposed for a lot of offices. No shit! It’s ridiculous.
But if you take a look at the county by county map after nearly every election you see that most of the state is red save Chicago and burbs and E. St. Louis.
Notice anything in common with those two areas????
LoL, that would only make Chicago MORE powerful. It would still control the rump state and its own delegation.
The only way to defeat Chicago politicians is to be smarter than they and that is a long way in the future.
