In the wake of the Daley era, the framework of the People’s Republic of Chicago political design rivals an intrepid séance of pure social Darwinistic stagnation, and of course lacking the key component of evolution.
Beleaguered across a multitude of a diverse factions, Mayor Rahm Emanuel recently drafted the a budget for the city in attempt to divert attention from his political misgivings and in the process succumbed to the demands of one of the most powerful education unions in the country. According to WHBL Radio, Chicago’s 2017 baseline operations costs will not exceed $3.7 billion and may require the presence of over $80 million in sustained revenue growth and other circumstantial vehicles to attain buoyancy.
Emanuel’s tenure has been characterized by incessant growth in civic infrastructure, outlandish tax hikes, a complete alienation of the police force and the maintenance of stringent gun laws. With law enforcement hampered by tedious operating and engagement policy and the difficulty for citizens in attaining legal firearms, the complete absence of street justice has led to virtual chaos in the form of a record number of violent crimes and one of the highest murder rates in the nation.
The crises in Chicagoland extends from the civil arena and well into the confines of the fiscal realm flirting with bankruptcy. With the existence of a pension system for civic workers, the city was liable for $33 billion in 2015, a figure that is sure to grow along with the dismay of multiple creditors. The desperate situation spurred by the ineptitude of the mayor and other elected officials has correlated with a series of horrendous and ineffectual legislation.
While a typical weekly review of crime in Chicago includes multiple homicides, acts of violence and countless felonies, the current regime prefers the method of resolve in disallowing citizens and law enforcement professionals to experience basic and fundamental liberties in the right of self-defense. This immutable indiscretion combined with the facilitation of a flawed and damaging financial model, projects the antithesis of a short-term outlook fueled by a sanguine foundation. As Emanuel scratches and claws at his tedious throne, his tenure is sure to come to a sobering conclusion in 2019. Who will be the next bureaucratic oligarch to capture the reins in a surreal liberal nightmare?
