That was what I was thinking. Michigan and Illinois should be neck and neck.

Some of what goes on elsewhere makes me realize that our politicians could actually be even worse in their behaviors.

I honestly thought California would be the 1st most dysfunctional state. You get a sense while in California that there's no real order there, almost a sense of anything is allowed. Extremely liberal state.

I won't argue that it's dysfunctional but I would argue that there is a sense of "anything is allowed". To me it feels like nothing is allowed and I'm constantly being told when, where, and how to do things. Feels like more of a nanny state to me.

IMHO the term "liberal" has lost any useful meaning it may have once had. What's liberal to me is not what is defined as liberal to most.
