Interesting Proposal

  • A state Republican legislator has introduced a bill to the Illinois General Assembly to separate the Chicago's county from the state--effectively making the midwestern city the 51st state in the union.

    The bill, filed by State Rep. Bill Mitchell of Decatur Tuesday, would "enact legislation dividing Illinois and Cook County into separate states" because county residents "hold different and firmly seated views" on "politics, society, and economics" from people in the rest of the state. The bill's supporters point to higher tax rates and strict gun laws in the Chicago area and contend that the northern county is out of step with its Illinois neighbors.

    "These liberal policies are an insult to the traditional values of downstate families," Mitchell told the Decatur Tribune. "When I talk to constituents, one of the biggest things I hear is 'Chicago should be its own state . . . .Our voters' voices were drowned out by Chicago."

Abolish "home rule" and a sizable percentage of Illinois' problems with Chicago disappear overnight. Then you can apply the rules evenly across the board and start making Chicago pay its own way.

Cook county population before separation 3.5 million. After separation .5 million. If they do that why not include Joliet and Elgin? All the problems in one basket!

Mike Royko used to say Chicago should be its own city-state. I used to agree with him because I thought the rest of the state was retarded. Now, I still want Chicago to be a separate state, so I don't have to move far to get away from the democrat mooches, with their never-ending taxes and infringement of your personal liberties.

Isn't it funny how you how you see things when you grow up?

More political B.S. The downstate pols have done this for as long as I can remember (I'm old), to get votes. If it happened, the downstate prisons would close and a nice tax stream would end. Think Chicago is crooked, ha. Vienna spawned the biggest of them all.

Ths isn't going to happen. Think about it. Look at the most recent election day map. You will see that with the exception of Crook County, the rest of Illinois is right thinking. But Chicago and Crook County drag the rest of the state down.If Crook County is allowed to secede from Illinois, Illinois becomes a Republcan state. Something the Democraps cannot and will not allow.
Remember, once you go south of Interstate 80, Illinois beomes a great place to live and work.

State Rep Mitchell thinks Chicago is a cancer that needs to be excised. Can't say I blame him for thinking that.

Until we vote out all incumbents, Democrat and Republican, he will be correct. Turn the compost heap.

I couldn't agree more, this should of been introduced before because the extreme liberal politicians in this county do control the remainder of the state. Ever been to southern Illinois, citizens voices from there don't get recognized because if this awful city. Great idea, I doubt if it would ever come to reality

make chicago a state and immediately declare it a federal disaster area--- then maybe we can get obama to loan us some money to balance our budget just like he did for the auto industry and big banks--- we promise we will pay it back---

At first this sounds good, but being a subject of chicago, I know how this will play out.
The vacuume created by the I'LL state tax will be immediatly filled by a chi. Increase of the same amount. Firearms will be completely banned. The dependant majority will vote themselves benifit raises and the taxes on workers will increae. As the loss of productive people takes its toll on tax revenue a "Berlin wall" will be erected.
Study the failed history of communisum to learn the ending.

Yeah this sounds good on paper. But if it were to become enacted the state of Illinois will be piping water thru Michigan and using Michigan ports to bring in goods. Chicago would tax the crap out of the state for water and the Illinois port authority costs to import would sky rocket. Then all the LINK card users would move down state or out of state to continue soaking up FREE programs while Chicago would be reorganizing to fund its own. Wait that sounds good. Ok I'm for it

Can you imagine how frustrating it must be to live in western/central/southern Illinois? Bill Brady won every county in Illinois except Cook, and yet he lost to Pat Quinn. It was a very close governors race, and Brady's people believe(rightfully) that voter fraud in parts of Chicago, and southern Cook County cost him the election.

Chicago Cook County politicians are what caused the death of Illinois. I hate being forced to live here. When I got on this job it wasn't as bad, but now we have the worst people living here and also running this place. I feel bad for the down staters who are controlled by chicago cook county politics. The down staters need to do a better job voting though. If they would increase their republican vote they could over-come the chicago shit democrats. God help Illinois. Fuck Quinn and Madigan!

and, you can fuck every state and municipal employee because those "pension laws" and "article 5" of the constitution apply to the STATE OF ILLINOIS, not the STATE OF CHICAGO.

If this fucktastic catastrophie were allowed to occur, every single cop, fireman, teacher, laborer, tradesman and AFSCME employee would be instantly FUCKED out of every benefit they obtained when they first became employees of CHICAGO and the STATE OF ILLINOIS.

This is no fuckin joke. This kind of end run around Illinois state law to fuck city employees is to be met with the complete and full force of every union member working in this city and every dollar our unions have left to fight.

Don't think for a SECOND that Emanuel is counting on this thing going all the way so union workers in this city have TWO fronts to fight on, throwing away millions of our dollars fighting this bullshit.

There are 102 counties in Illinois.
Generally, nothing much is reported about them or the people who reside there.
When Chicago has a problem, it becomes the ENTIRE state's problem.
Chicago has financial difficulties, then the entire state has to pay out to fix them.
If a large percentage of the people reside there, then why can't they take care of their own problems without draining resources from the rest of the state?

Look how many laws effect the Crook County/Chicago area alone: speed cameras, Chicago employee residency, etc.

Socialism man, socialism. It's the sense of entitlement that Crook County/Chicago politicians have; they figure that the metro area brings in all these tax dollars to the state and even if they're spent inappropriately or stupidly, the rest of the state needs to share their money.

It would be interesting to see the other 101 counties survive as Chicago/Crook County quickly burns out like a dying sun.
