TWO STATES IN THE MIDDLE OF AMERICA!

Illinois & Oklahoma:

I thought these two states, made for an interesting contrast. The first part about Illinois and the second part is about Oklahoma!

PART 1 - Illinois

"A State with No Republicans"!

Some interesting data on the 'state' of the State of Illinois. There are more people on welfare in Illinois than there are people working. Chicago pays the highest wages to teachers than anywhere else in the U.S. Their average pay is $110,000/year. Their pensions average 80-90% of their income. Wow, are Illinois and Chicago great or what? Be sure to read till the end. I've never heard it explained better. Perhaps the U.S. should pull out of Chicago?

Body count: In the last six months, 292killed (murdered) in Chicago. 221 killed in Iraq ;AND Chicago has one of the strictest gun laws in the entire US.

This was Chicago┬┤s chain of command:

President: Barack Hussein Obama. Senator: Dick Durbin. House Representative: Jesse Jackson Jr. . Governor: Pat Quinn. House leader: Mike Madigan. Atty. Gen.: Lisa Madigan (daughter of Mike). Mayor: Rahm Emanuel. The leadership in Illinois - all Democrats.

Thank you for the combat zone in Chicago. Of course, they're all blaming each other. Can't blame Republicans; there aren't any!

Let us getALL the facts out while we are at it:

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, worst in country. Can't blame Republicans; there aren't any!

Cook County ( Chicago ) sales tax 10.25% highest in country. Can't blame Republicans; there aren't any!

This is the political culture that Obama comes from in Illinois. And he was going to 'fix'Washington politics for us?

George Ryan is no longer Governor, he is in prison.

He was replaced by Rob Blagojevich who is, by the way, also in prison.

And Representative Jesse Jackson Jr. resigned and, that's right, he and his wife are both in prison.

The Land of Lincoln, where our Governors and Representatives make our license plates. What?

As long as they keep providing entitlements to the population of Chicago, nothing is going to change, except the state will go bankrupt before the country does.

"Anybody who thinks he can be happy and prosperous by letting the Government take care of him better take a closer look at the American Indian."

Don't forget Detroit, another great example of a Democratic empire. With all the bad news, there is hope, so let's go to:

PART 2- Oklahoma

OKLAHOMA- may soon have plenty of new residents!

THIS IS REALLY INTERESTING, AND TRUE... PLEASE READ IT!

Oklahoma is the only state that Obama did not win even one county in the last election... While everyone is focusing on Arizona's new law, look what Oklahoma has been doing!!!

An update from Oklahoma: Oklahoma law passed, 37 to 9 an amendment to place the Ten Commandments on the front entrance to the state capitol. The feds in D.C., along with the ACLU, said it would be a mistake. Hey this is a conservative state, based on Christian values... HB 1330 Guess what... Oklahoma did it anyway.

Oklahoma recently passed a law in the state to incarcerate all illegal immigrants and ship them back to where they came from unless they want to get a green card and become an American citizen. They all scattered. HB1804. This was against the advice of the Federal Government, and the ACLU, they said it would be a mistake. Guess what... Oklahoma did it anyway. Recently they passed a law to include DNA samples from any and all illegal's to the Oklahoma database, for criminal investigative purposes. Pelosi said it was unconstitutional SB1102. Guess what... Oklahoma did it anyway.

Several weeks ago, Oklahoma passed a law, declaring Oklahoma as a Sovereign state, not under the Federal Government directives. Joining, Texas, Montana and Utah as the only states to do so.

More states are likely to follow: Louisiana, Alabama, Georgia, the Carolinas, Kentucky, Missouri, Arkansas, West Virginia, Mississippi and Florida. Save your confederate money, it appears the South is about to rise up once again. HJR 1003

The federal Government has made bold steps to take away our guns. Oklahoma, a week ago, passed a law confirming people in this state have the right to bear arms and transport them in their vehicles. I'm sure that was a setback for the criminals The Liberals didn't like it- But... Guess what... Oklahoma did it anyway.

Just this month, the state has voted and passed a law that ALL drivers' license exams will be printed in English and only English and no other language. They have been called racist for doing this, but the fact is that ALL of the road signs are in English only. If you want to drive in Oklahoma, you must read and write English. Really simple. By the way, the Liberals don't like any of this either.

Guess what... who cares... Oklahoma is doing it anyway.

The Oklahoma part of this was written in about 2009 but was at least mostly true at that time.

Unfortunately we do have a Republican in the Governor's mansion now. The unfortunate part is that he has been made into the ultimate scapegoat.

I'm glad to live in Oklahoma for many of the reasons you mentioned and more. Oklahoma still has our share of problems. Our average teacher pay is terrible, amongst the lowest in the nation. Teachers are leaving for Texas. Our state government is also not very good at money management, we are currently in a bit of a budget crisis and can't figure out how to raise teachers wages. Roads are some of the worst I've been on throughout the states I've been in.

Our governor has lowered taxes in an effort to attract new businesses. Socially we are about the reddest state there is but there are still plenty of young, stupid and unemployed to comprise a democrat party. We have plenty of problems but I'm glad I don't live in a liberal state.

Not only has he been made a scapegoat but a week or so ago he sold out his entire base by making Illinois a sanctuary STATE and by signing a bill that automatically registers someone to vote who get's a driver's licence.

Both Rauner AND Illinois are toast. As soon as I can get out of here I'm gone.

Oklahoma is a great state to live in as a conservative...I live in the eastern half and very rural and almost everyone is a democrat but having said that they voted conservative for president...I still haven't met anyone who admits to voting for Obama... We are definitely moving in the right direction with our deer herd and I have multiple opps at P & Y bucks per year...still no cases of CWD in our wild deer herd in the state...
