The bankrupt city of Detroit is a great example of where nothing but Democrat policies for a long time will take you. There has not been any Republican anything in power in that city for the last 60 years. Back in the day when I was still a Democrat, I remember being thrilled watching the new young Detroit Mayor, Kwame Kilpatrick along with his mother, the then Rep. Carolyn Cheeks Kilpatrick on C-SPAN. Oh, did he disappoint me! People living in cities that Democrats are running and ran for decades should take a good look at the fiscal health of their city. Who knows if your city maybe next to go bankrupt!
I know some of you are saying the comparison is a little off, because Detroit is a city and Texas is a state, but Texas is doing better in this downed economy. Can you say the same for your state? The cities in Texas do not fiscally resemble Detroit in the least. Many of the people who are boiling over angry with the high taxing liberal to leftist state of California are leaving and moving to Republican conservative Texas, especially for better business prospects. Hey! We can proudly blame George W. Bush for Texas. Gov Rick Perry had to deal with what then Gov. Bush left him. It was all good and Gov. Perry has made it better.
Democrats of Detroit and the fiscally failing cities that are further down the that road where the destination is bankruptcy, should be taking a good look at Republican conservative policies at the city and state level. There are plenty of ‘I told you so’ reactions out there, but it would be wonderful for Detroit some day to achieve full restoration. Of course that will not happen if they continue to run with liberal to leftist policies of the Democratic Party.
