"Cesspools" like Chicago are typically net payers to their state income tax system, meaning they subsidize the downstate redneck paradise.

In other words, if downstate Illinois wants Chicago out, i'd love to see it happen. They'd be Missouri or Indiana in no time.

The hate goes both ways and has been festering for decades. It's downstate conservatives that want to kick Chicago out of Illinois. They're either too dumb to realize that Chocago subsidizes the rest of the state, or they think their constituents are.

Someone who is living in a anti-American cesspool accusing others of it. Hypocrite much Boazo?

PS. Are you still pretending to be a black guy, or did you give up that charade?

More boaz s$&@ posting.

I think we should amend the EC so that electors are divided up by the number of total teeth possessed by the voters.

You guys would do great!

#7 I have to laugh. I see the similarities in NY where every so often the morons in WNY want to kick NYC out of NYS. Go ahead. You will become as prosperous as Alabama.

#9 How do you know that the toothbrush was invented in a red state?

Because if it weren't, it would be called a teethbrush.

I do believe that the majority of Illinois would gladly have Chicago depart the state.

majority by actual people or majority by the irrelevant yet righty favorite square miles?

In a thread about the majority of people in a state dominating the parts with more cows than people when it comes to voting you decided that,,,,, I mean, what did you decide here, that the cows should get to vote?

I don't understand what you're saying.

And if you even read Boaz's article you'd know Chicago carries the financial burden for the rest of Illinois. So go ahead and try it, it's like a teenager running away from home with no money because they hate their responsible mom and dad.
