I have come to the conclusion that the people of Belleville, St. Clair County, and Illinois are like sheep and are weak people who let the incompetent and crooked politicians cow them into passive sheep that are afraid to demand a thorough house cleaning and are afraid of a change of leaders because they are afraid of anything new.
People are leaving Illinois as fast as they can along with businesses and factories.
