  •  If you say Democrat to a rural Illinois Republican (7+ / 0-)

    it is all about Chicago to them.  They all go around saying that the best thing would be to divide Chicago off into a separate state.  They have it in their little heads that all the downstate tax money flows north to Chicago.  They don't seem to  grasp that many of the population centers downstate vote for Democrats and Chicago is the great economic engine of Illinois.

    •  Same thing in NY. (1+ / 0-)

      NYC sends more money to Albany then it get back and upstate politicians (dems included) never fail to blame NYC for all that ails the state.

          the family -- ?) that part of the rw's strategy in remaking america into the image they want is to "bleed the cities" -- & for preciseley the reasons you state: they are havens of liberalism gone amok & where seething masses of minorities leech the govt for all they can -- at least as far as conservatives are concerned.

          that's why so many cities have been deserted by the white tax base & their infrastructures left to crumble & a disproportionate number of  the people who live in them are poor, homeless, & suffer from illnesses both physical & mental & without enuf resources to remedy the situation.

          it's ironic to me that the ones who crow the loudest about america being the greatest country in the world, cheer the decline of the most recognizable symbols of our country: cities.
