Split Illinois Into 2 Separate States

It is time for Chicago to leave Illinois. For too long the state of Illinois has been controlled by Chicago politics. The interests of the city of Chicago are not representative of the majority of the state. The tax burden of this city should no longer be the burden of the people that do not live there. The regulations that are dictated by Chicago politicians are not in the best interest of the rest of the state. The northeastern part of Illinois should be made into its own state along the I-39 and I-80 lines.
