Swamp (Chicago) Obama came from is a Democrat paradise

  • Published in Letters

To The Daily Sun,
I've written a few letters before and asked some of the liberal writers to respond, but none have. Lets give it another try.
I looked at the state and city that Obama comes from — Illinois/Chicago. Here are some interesting facts and maybe you could explain to me what I'm missing:
— The state and national representatives are basically ALL DEMOCRATS. A true DEMOCRAT PARADISE and has been for decades. Lets see how they are doing.
— There are more people on welfare than working in Chicago.
— Chicago pays the highest wages to teachers than anywhere else in the U.S. — avg. $110,000 per year and pensions that average 80-90 percent of their income. (This not about teachers, it's about Democrat policies.)
Can't blame republicans there aren't any!
— There have been more people killed in Chicago than Iraq or Afganistan in the last six months, mostly young minorities.
— They also have some of the strictest gun laws in the country.
Can't blame republicans there aren't any!!

— Some of the Illinois chain of command: President Obama; Senator Dick Durbin; former Rep. Jesse Jackson, Jr. (He plea bargained so his wife could avoid going to prison for misuse of campaign funds.) Governor Pat Quinn, Democrat; Lisa Madigan, Attorney General, Democrat; Mike Madigan, Speaker of the House (father of Lisa), Democrat; Rohm Emanuel, Chicago mayor, you guessed it, Democrat. The leadership is all DEMOCRAT.
— Thanks for the combat zone in Chicago!
Can't blame republicans there aren't any.
— Chicago school system rated one of the worst in the country.
Can't blame republicans there aren't any.
— State pension fund $78 billion in debt.
Cant blame . . . no I won't say it again.
— Cook County (Chicago) sales tax is 10.25 percent — highest in the country!
This is the political swamp that Obama comes from and he was suppose to clean up Washington? But you know what, as long as they keep electing Democrats that continue to provide handouts from the working class NOTHING WILL CHANGE! Except the state will go bankrupt before the country does.
In closing ponder this: "Any man who thinks he can be happy and prosperous by letting the government take care of them, better take a closer look at the American Indian!"
