Chicago may soon have five socialists on City Council

Chicago's South Side
Chicago is clearly a city on the decline. Crime, corruption, and unstainable public-sector union debt are driving people from the city.

What to do?

Head to the left.

Two leftists, Toni "Taxwinkle" Preckwinkle and Lori Lightfoot, emerged from last week's mayoral election. Neither received a majority--they'll meet a run-off election in four weeks.

But that's not all.

From Fox News:
Chicago is on the verge of having as many as five members of the Democratic Socialists of America on the city council.

Alderman Carlos Ramirez-Rosa won his reelection bid last Tuesday and upstart democratic socialist Daniel La Spata upset incumbent Ald. Proco "Joe" Moreno to take Chicago's 1st Ward.

Three more DSA candidates also forced run-offs against incumbent aldermen in Chicago.

"The oligarchs are shaking in their boots tonight," Ramirez-Rosa, who defeated challenger Amanda Yu Dieterich in Chicago's 35th, said, according to the Chicago Sun-Times. "Our continued organizing and movement-building over the last four years is paying dividends. And it appears to be a total transformation of political power at City Hall from the bottom up."
Of course Ramirez-Rosa doesn't mention Chicago's middle class--because it is almost extinct in Chicago.
