Now it seems like we have more laws than taxpayers are willing to support, so we go to the next solution to borrow money; this was always easy until the credit lenders figured out Illinois laws will not allow businesses to operate without some Illinois law interfering. This is why you see a high dollar company moving their headquarters to other states and overseas.
Some counties in Illinois are trying to cover state and local mandates by passing things such as a public safety tax so they can enforce all the laws. Business owners in Illinois are now at the point where they don’t know what agency will invade your property and shut you down until they decide if you were breaking the law. Will it be the EPA, Secretary of State, sales tax audit, workman’s compensation audit or just a nice letter from the Illinois Department of Revenue telling you that they are going to lock your doors if you don’t prove that you sent those tax forms to them. So you spend half the day helping them find that it was their error. No problem, the business paid for their mistake. Illinois will tell you that you have no rights, only privileges allowed by the state.
We are seeing priest and ministers and religious-based hospitals force to do things against their beliefs. We see private property declared to be public property under the disguise of a smoking ban. We have to have a FOID card permit to have a firearm and a permit for our permit to carry a firearm. They have their ideas for new laws everyday in Illinois.
I can only think of one new law that would solve a lot of these problems. Our country was made strong by the men, women and children that believed in God and country. Now we are seeing the danger of a lawmaker using an ink pen loaded with high capacity ink cartridges destroying what was passed down by our ancestors.
