Indiana, Kentucky, Missouri, Wisconsin and Iowa Governors would be well advised to send in their state police to seize the Illinois legislature and state house crowd and imprison them for an indefinate period. What Illinois is proposing to do is a clear and present danger to everyone in the surrounding states.
This is a “test case” compliments of Rahm Emmanuel. First Obamacare began in Cook County on January 1, now this. We are prisoners of Cook County.
Charge them with “conspiracy to overthrow the Constitution of the United States”.
Organized crime and dems have been known to work together in Chicago...
Al Capone understood the ‘value’ of illogical laws... He once said when asked if he was a bootlegger: “Sure, and some of our best judges use my stuff.”
Chicago’s the same place it always was... Chicago pols will profit from giving the gun industry to organized crime...
Obviously I don't advocate states invading each other and seizing their legislative assemblies, but it's patently obvious that most of rural Illinois outside metro Chicago thinks the state government is out of touch. Can we Missourians get together with Kentuckians and sponsor a petition by Illinoisans living south of Springfield, Ill., to leave Illinois and join either Missouri or Kentucky? Maybe northwestern Illinois would like to be part of Iowa or Wisconsin.
That would leave the Chicago-Springfield corridor to its own devices. They deserve each other.
Only two main problems with that.
First, I'd feel really bad for people living in Wheaton and DuPage County in the Chicago suburbs. Maybe Iowa would be willing to annex all the way to the Chicago city limit if a strong wall could be built at the edge of town.
Second, I guess that means we'd have to take East St. Louis. I see no way around that. But maybe with widespread gun ownership promoted by Missouri gun rights, the legitimate inner-city businessmen in East St. Louis would be able to defend themselves and fix the place.
Yeah, I know this is crazy talk. Won't happen. But it would be nice to realign certain key liberal states where most of the people outside the big cities don't have a functioning government that represents their views.
