The worst states in America right now are sanctuary states. They are tearing themselves apart putting illegal immigrants ahead of their own citizens.
Corruption is running rampant, with major cities run by Democrats who might as well be mob bosses. Their toxic liberal policies are ruining the economy. Not to mention leading to rampant crime and death.
So, it comes as no surprise that decent people are fleeing a sanctuary state on the verge of collapse while freedom-loving states are growing like jackrabbits.
Oh, and did we mention Obama is to blame along with his crony buddies?
From Zero Hedge:
Illinois is drowning under a mountain of debt, unpaid bills and underfunded pension liabilities and it’s largest city, Chicago, is suffering from a staggering outbreak of violent crime not seen since gang wars engulfed major cities from LA to New York in the mid-90’s. Here is just a small taste of some of our posts on Illinois’ challenges:
- Illinois Pension Funding Ratio Sinks To 37.6% As Unfunded Liabilities Surge To $130 Billion
- Illinois Unpaid Vendor Backlog Hits A New Record At Over $16 Billion
- The State Of Illinois Is “Past The Point Of No Return”
- “What The Hell Is Going On In Chicago” And Other Highlights From Trump’s Speech To FBI Grads
Given that, it’s hardly surprising that the Prairie State lost a net 33,700 residents in fiscal year 2017, according to the Census Bureau.
Also not surprising is the fact that the mass exodus from Illinois was the largest of any state in the country with lower taxed, lower cost of living states like Texas and Florida posting the biggest gains…
Obama’s political career was birthed in the political corruption of Chicago and the Illinois State Senate. Chicago is now the only top-20 major city in the United States that is shrinking. Obama hails from one of America’s worst states.
Trump, on the other hand, comes from Florida, the state with the second-largest population growth, and zero income taxes, and my home state.
When I picture the beautiful city of Chicago, on the shores of Lake Michigan, I can understand the appeal of living there.
But f I was a hard-working American living in anywhere Illinois, I wouldn’t be there for long. The high taxes, rampant crime, and sanctuary status make it unlivable. Why would any decent citizen put up with it? When your leaders are actively working against you, it’s time to go.
It’s sad, really. Not everyone has the means to leave. Many families are stuck in Illinois. They suffer as corrupt leaders sabotage the state. Citizens must rise up and vote these clowns out of office. Only then will things improve.
But we may never see that happen.
