Listen to this information I received recently in an e-mail. It suggested that perhaps the U.S. should pull out of Chicago.
Look at the body count: in the last six months 292 have been killed/murdered in Chicago. Did you know 221 were killed in Iraq AND Chicago has one of the strictest gun laws in the entire United States?
The leadership in Illinois is all Democrats. President Barack Obama, Senator Dick Durbin, House Representative Jesse Jackson, Jr., Governor Pat Quinn, House Leader Mike Madigan and his daughter Lisa Madigan is Attorney General. Chicago’s Mayor is Rahm Emanuel.
The Chicago school system is rated one of the worst in the country…the state pension fund is around $100 billion in debt…Cook County’s sales tax is 10.25%, the highest in the country, but you can’t blame Republicans because there aren’t any.
This is the political culture that President Obama comes from in Illinois. And he is going to “fix” Washington politics for us?
Remember this…any government big enough to give you everything you want will also be big enough to take all that you have.
That’s Land’s View. I’d like to hear yours. I’m Dave Land.
