Yes, all very well, Dan, but a note of caution. I grew up in Arizona, and watched in horror as that conservative state was slowly californicated by the fruits and nuts fleeing the taxmegeddon of the golden state. Sadly, they brought their stupidity with them, and elected politicians the likes of Janet Napolitano. Colorado is currently undergoing the same process. And if Obama and the RINOs have their way on immigration, Texas will become a red state overnight.
And I wouldn't hold my breath waiting for disaster to overtake Illinois (as it rightly should). Obama is the king of bailouts, and if push comes to shove, I'm sure the anointed one will be only too happy to spread a little more wealth towards his political home base. No doubt he'll make sure to give Illinois to the unions, while he's at it. (Oops, wait a minute, Illinois is already *owned* by the unions. Oh, well.)
