I've acknowledged that oversight in a previous post; but the point remains that many of us -- be we Libertarian, Republican, Constitutionalist -- or whatever, see Big Government, with its pursuit of power and coercion, as the cause of, rather than the remedy for our problems.

Democrats are mostly hacks, grafters and panderers .... and at least admit to it.

Rauner is apparently the same.

Indiana doesn't have much of an economy if it can't leech off Chicago's sprawl.

I don't like Indiana's new law but Illinois needs to worry about high taxes discriminating against the middle class. There's a flood of people from IL moving South and to Indiana because of lower taxes. Ohio has the same problem.

NW Indiana isn't growing anyway - the 2 small counties across from Louisville KY are adding more population as is Ft Wayne, and Indianapolis is by far the main population / job center for the state.

leeching? People and businesses are leaving Illinois because they've run the state into the ground.

They are in BY FAR the worst financial condition of any state.

As someone that spent their first 30 years in Illinois, I don't miss the long commutes, expensive housing, high taxes and meh public schools.
