The U.S. economy, in our opinion is terminal; our government has truly created a real monster.
I would not be surprised at all to see more stories like these written by Joshua Krause, of TheDailySheeple.
As time goes on, the city of Chicago is rapidly turning into a crime-infested hell hole, rife with poverty, debt, and racial tension. The city is well on its way to joining the likes of Detroit, and there may be no escaping that eventuality. That’s why many of the city’s wealthy elites are getting the hell out of there.
The Chicago Tribune reports that roughly 3,000 millionaires have left the city over the past year alone, which amounts to about 2 percent of their wealthy population. This is the largest exodus of wealthy people in the United States, and one of the largest in the world. Paris and Rome are the only cities that lost more millionaires than Chicago in the same time period.
According to research, many of these elites are relocating to other cities in the United States, such as Seattle and San Francisco, which saw a net inflow of millionaires over the past year. When asked about why they were leaving Chicago, most of these millionaires cited racial tension and rising crime rates.
If you happen to live in Chicago, take a hint from the people with insider knowledge and connections and get out while you still can.
Editor’s Note: Unfortunately, Chicago may end up like Detroit. And ultimately, America may end up like Detroit, with a collapsing middle class and a population that has been conditioned into believing that the very government that has wreaked havoc on the economy will be the savior that can fix it.
