but Illinois seems particularly problematic in that regard. I think it's honestly a big reason who Illinois has never been good at recruiting in state kids, especially ones from Chicagoland. I'm a staunch defender of the institution of government but Illinois is hard to defend.
If you don’t like living in Illinois then f#%@$!@ leave. Quit bitching about it and move. Drives me nuts listening to people constantly pissing and moaning about how bad the state is, just go already.
