There is this weird quirk we’ve been seeing across the country. Those states run by heavily-liberal governments… are losing people!
The toxic policies of the Left—high taxes, social justice, pro-illegal immigration—have had a disastrous effect on their cities and states. Regular Americans are feeling the pain. It’s almost as if, Democrats are completely incompetent!
We’ve seen the fallout of Gov. Jerry Brown’s leadership in California. The once proud state is a shell of its former self. Homeless flood the streets. Garbage is everywhere. Jobs are bleeding as businesses flee.
But—as bad as CA is—it’s not the worst in the country. Believe it or not, there is one state that is losing more citizens than any other. And it happens to be Obama’s former home.
Illinois alone lost 33,703 citizens to outward migration last year. In 2016, the state lost another 37,508 people. A report by the Chicago Tribune also noted that Chicago has been a net loser of its citizens for the last three years running. And the surrounding county was also a net loser of its population.
Indeed, Chicago is unique in the U.S. for being the only major city that has consistently lost citizens over the last five years. The Tribune’s editorial board even published an editorial saying that it no longer makes any sense to live in Illinois…
One Chicago couple who moved to Tennessee told WGN that the move gave them back an amazing 25 percent of their income that would no longer be lost to property taxes and other expenses associated with living in the deep blue state of Illinois.
This is a trend that keeps continuing. Patriots are leaving places like California, New York, and Illinois for greener pastures. They’d rather live in Texas, Florida, and Tennessee. Those predominantly conservative states have lower taxes. Not to mention, they’re a damn sight prettier than Chicago!
People are waking up to the fact that liberal leadership is bad for America. Democrats promise the moon, but instead, they only give higher taxes and bad leadership. Cities and states run by the left are in the toilet. Now, more than ever. Their radical hatred of President Trump only makes matters worse.
Illinois is in big trouble. All the good people will soon be gone. What will they have left, but the criminals and illegal aliens?
Try taxing them.
