Commenter “alabamashake” disagrees with the statement,
“A once beautiful state is turning into Detroit because of the Democrats.“
As far as Chicago goes, it’s difficult to extract the Democratic Party from responsibility.
That party’s officials have been in control since the 1930’s.
After the quote, there is this comment:
1) No, it is turning into anything close to Detroit. Good try though.
2) The highest property taxes in the state are all or almost all in Republican controlled municipalities. McHenry County is almost completely represented by Republicans. But sure – its ALL THE DEMOCRATS FAULT!
I’ll take on what I take as a denial that Chicago is looking like Detroit by posting links below to various articles on Marathon Pundit which show housing and other buildings in both cities.
They look pretty similar to me.
