What happens when a Democrat in arguably the most Democrat city in America runs a foul with his constituency? Do they cut him a break? Do they tell him that they are angry with him?
Nope. In true Democrat fashion, they rebel. They protest. They go out of their way to call for his resignation and to try and force him from office. And so it is in the Windy City. Rahm Emmanuel is in deep trouble and doesn’t know how to get out of it. He’s got protests going on daily all demanding that he step down from the Mayor’s position. He’s got gun violence in a town that doesn’t allow guns (or at the very least makes it tougher to get them than anywhere in the country). He’s run up debt, he’s not popular, and couldn’t win the title of dog catcher at the county fair.
And Rahm doesn’t have a clue how to fix it. That’s because there is no liberal fix in this liberal city. You are watching exactly what happens when liberals run government. Debts sky-rocket and liberal policies abound, and then people start turning on each other. It happens in every single incident that liberals control a town, a state, or a country. That’s because liberal policies do not work, never have worked, and never will work. And for two simple reasons…they will eventually run out of money to fund all their wacko projects, and they have too many wacko projects. Government isn’t designed to do what liberals want it to do.
What we are seeing is the typical implosion of a liberal run city. It happened in Detroit (no…you can’t blame it on George W. Bush or the Republicans…Detroit has been 100% Democrat for decades), and it’s happening now in Chicago. Guns are a major issue in that city. Yet, they have the strongest gun control laws in the nation. Guns shouldn’t even BE in Chicago…yet gang violence, drive-by murders, and shootings are a daily occurrence. How can this happen if all we need are stronger gun laws? The truth is, the liberals miss one valid point and they have no argument for it. Criminals don’t follow the law, and will get guns illegally. All you’re doing is punishing the law-abiding citizen from their second amendment rights. If gun control worked, Chicago wouldn’t be having these problems. The science is settled, the debate is over.
Liberalism is the cause of the cancer that has become Chicago. From schools that can’t teach kids to read or write; to an over-bloated budget that tries to be cradle-to-grave nanny for its citizens, Chicago has worked hard at being the shining beacon of liberalism. And it’s failed big time. It can’t sustain itself, and it’s bringing the state of Illinois down with it. And that is why, when asked about why liberalism isn’t what we need in this country, you can point to two Midwestern cities as shining examples of what happens. You look at the Detroit situation and you look at Chicago. Two cities with promise and hope a century ago, that now are in the depths of depression and despair because liberals got their hands on them and tried to institute programs government shouldn’t be involved in. That’s the real reason for Rahm Emmanuel’s problems. The bigger problem for him? That protest crowd is getting bigger every day!
Carry on world…you’re dismissed!
