Like the sane folks in California, the sane people in Illinois want to free themselves from the crazy corrupt left.

The so-called “Second City” may eventually become the next state, after frustration regarding Chicago’s influence over politics in Illinois.
A group of state Republican lawmakers recently signed on to legislation proposing the nation’s third-largest city become the 51st state.
“It’s more of a frustration of the policies than the true belief that Chicago and Illinois would be better off as separate states,” Rep. C.D. Davidsmeyer told the State Journal-Register. “I don’t believe that Chicago and the state of Illinois should be separated. Our relationship is mutually beneficial.”
Davidsmeyer said he co-sponsored the legislation to spark a discussion about how the city’s politics impact rural residents in downstate Illinois.
