If you are wondering what is wrong with America under Democratic control, look no further than the state of Illinois which has been under Democratic control for years.
Detroit just declared bankruptcy after decades under Democratic rule. Perhaps they would have more money if the Democrats in control, were not stealing it for themselves.
Chicago Democrat Daniel Rostenkowski, Chairman of the powerful Ways and Means Committee, was convicted of mail fraud for trading postal stamps for cash and for padding his payroll with non-existent workers.
Illinois House Democrat Representative Jesse Jackson Jr. is in jail for financial improprieties. When his time is served, he will be released and his wife will begin her sentence. The courts are allowing the wife to delay her sentence until her husband is released from prison so that the kids will have at least one parent at home to raise them. My opinion is with parents like these the kids would be better off being raised in a qualified foster home.
The Governor of Illinois, Democrat Rod Blagojevich, is serving time for soliciting bribes for political appointments.
Illinois House Representative Democrat Derrick Smith is in jail for accepting a $7,000 bribe.
Illinois Comptroller & Treasurer Dixon Rita Crondwell was found guilty of embezzling $30 million to support her lavish lifestyle.
The Democratic party is in favor of gun control. Chicago has one of the strictest gun laws with the highest murder rate.
Did you know that Chicago, a city with no civilian gun ranges and with bans on both assault weapons and high-capacity magazines, finds itself laboring to stem a flood of gun violence that contributed to more than 500 homicides last year?
Perhaps the Democrats should be going after the bad guys instead of the law-abiding citizen. Then again, if they did that, there would probably be even more Democrat elected officials behind bars!
This is the political culture that Obama comes from and we believe he is going to “fix” Washington politics for us?
They don’t call it “Chicago style Politics” for nothing!
