Illinois or Oklahoma -- which is the better place to live?

Agent 6 passes along a comparison [dates from 2009, but still valid. Ed.] of life and legislation in two states of "middle America" -- one run by liberal Democrats, the other by conservative Republicans. Which one would you rather live in?

ILLINOIS - Some interesting data on the State of Illinois

There are more people on welfare in Illinois than there are people working.
Chicago pays the highest wages to teachers than anywhere else in the USA, averaging $110,000 per year. Their pensions average 80-90% of their income.
Chicago school system rated one of the worst in the country. Can't blame Republicans; there aren't any!

Perhaps the US should pull out of Chicago? Body count: In the last six months, 292 killed (murdered) in Chicago, 221 killed in Iraq. AND Chicago has one of the strictest gun laws in the entire US.

Here's the power structure responsible for Chicago and Illinois:
President: Barack Obama * Senator: Dick Durbin * House Representative: Jesse Jackson Jr. * Governor: Pat Quinn * House leader: Mike Madigan * Attorney General: Lisa Madigan (daughter of Mike) * Mayor: Rahm Emanuel (Obama's best bud)
All Democrats. Thank you for the combat zone in Chicago!
Of course, they're all blaming each other. Can't blame Republicans; there aren't any! State pension fund $78 Billion in debt, worst in country. Can't blame Republicans; there aren't any!

Cook County (Chicago) sales tax - 10.25% - highest in country. Can't blame Republicans; there aren't any!

This is the political culture that Obama comes from in Illinois. And he's going to "fix" Washington politics for us?

George Ryan is no longer Governor, he is in prison.
He was replaced by Rob Blagoyavic who is - that's right - also in prison.
And Representative Jesse Jackson Jr. resigned a couple of weeks ago, because he is fighting to not be sent to... that's right, prison.

The Land of Lincoln, where our governors make our license plates.

As long as they keep providing entitlements to the population of Chicago, nothing is going to change, except the state will go broke before the country does. Don't forget Detroit - another good example!
"Anybody who thinks he can be happy and prosperous by letting the Government take care of him better take a closer look at the American Indian."

OKLAHOMA - may soon have plenty of new residents!

Oklahoma is the only state [in which] Obama did not win even one county in the [2008] election. And look what Oklahoma has been doing!!!

[Oklahoma's legislature] passed, 37 to 9, an amendment to place the Ten Commandments on the front entrance to the state capitol. HB1330 The feds in DC, along with the ACLU, said it would be a mistake. Hey this is a conservative state, based on Christian values.
Guess what... Oklahoma did it anyway.

Oklahoma recently passed a law in the state to incarcerate all illegal immigrants, and ship them back to where they came from unless they want to get a green card and become American citizens. HB1804. They all scattered. This was against the advice of the Federal Government, and the ACLU, they said it would be a mistake.
Guess what... Oklahoma did it anyway.

Recently we passed a law to include DNA samples from any and all illegals in the Oklahoma database, for criminal investigative purposes. SB1102. [Nancy] Pelosi said it was unconstitutional.
Guess what... Oklahoma did it anyway.

Several weeks ago, we passed a law, declaring Oklahoma a sovereign state, not under federal government directives, joining Texas, Montana and Utah as the only states to do so. HJR1003. More states are likely to follow: Louisiana, Alabama, Georgia, the Carolinas, Kentucky, Missouri, Arkansas, West Virginia, Mississippi and Florida. Save your confederate money; it appears the South is about to rise up again!

The federal Government has made bold steps to take away our guns. Oklahoma, a week ago, passed a law confirming people in this state have the right to bear arms and transport them in their vehicles. I'm sure that was a setback for the criminals. The Liberals didn't like it --But... Guess what... Oklahoma did it anyway.

Just this month, the state has voted and passed a law that ALL drivers license exams will be printed in English, and only English, and no other language. They have been called racist for doing this, but the fact is that ALL of the road signs are in English only. If you want to drive in Oklahoma, you must read and write English. Really simple.

By the way, the Liberals don't like any of this either
Guess what... who cares... Oklahoma is doing it anyway.

Please don't write to me complaining that the statistics are dated or that some of the Oklahoma legislation has been repealed or struck down. I know that. And I said at the beginning this rant has been on the Net since 2009. It's a comparison still worth considering.
