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.
Think about it! Criminals do not obey the gun laws. They will always circumvent the strictest of gun laws, get their stash of guns and go on to shoot and kill. The biggest example is the city of Chicago, which is topping other U. S. cities in experiencing the most gun violence. Just recently Chicago police had to deal with 13 shootings within a 30 minute time span. Read more about that here.
Now I saw a new heaven and a new earth, for the first heaven and the first earth had passed away. Also there was no more sea. Then I, John,saw the holy city, New Jerusalem, coming down out of heaven from God, prepared as a bride adorned for her husband. And I heard a loud voice from heaven saying, “Behold, the tabernacle of God is with men, and He will dwell with them, and they shall be His people. God Himself will be with them and be their God. And God will wipe away every tear from their eyes; there shall be no more death, nor sorrow, nor crying. There shall be no more pain, for the former things have passed away.”

I spent most of my life in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. Seven years ago, I moved some 20 miles (or more) northwest of the city. I still read Philly newspapers and listen to Philly talk radio. Philly has not changed politically one bit. It is a very Democratic blue town. You can always count on Philly to deliver the Democratic vote. I remember back in 1984 when the late Ronald Reagan was running for re-election against Democratic challenger, Walter Mondale. It was no contest. Ronald Reagan won the country, except Minnesota, the District of Columbia and the city of Philadelphia. A month before the election, Mondale came to Philly where the people exalted him. People skipped and danced around him as he walked on Chestnut Street downtown.
Philly just had a primary election yesterday, May 17th. It is still safe to say that whoever wins the Democratic Mayoral Primary is Philly’s next mayor. The current Mayor, Michael Nutter won the Democratic Primary yesterday. He will most likely win re-election in November. If he does not, it will be one of the biggest upsets ever. The Philly Mayoral election will be national news. There is talk of a challenge from former Democratic Mayor John Street as an Independent. If that happens, John Street would have a better chance at victory than the Republican challenger.
Two people, Karen Brown and John Featherman competed to be the Republican Mayoral candidate. As of this post, the vote totals are too close; therefore, there is still no declared victor. Now Mayor Nutter’s primary challenge was Milton Street (John Street’s Brother). Go here to get a clue on Milton Street, then be surprised that he received 24 percent of the Democratic vote. To get a better idea of how Republicans have a long way to go for a Republican Mayoral victory, Milton Street’s 24 percent was over twice as many votes than the votes of the 2 Republican challengers combined. Just look at the top 2 panels.
Listen to Cory Booker, a Democrat and the Mayor of Newark, New Jersey.
Mayor Booker is alright with me. He has reconciled to the reality that many Democrat union people and liberal voters in general refuse to accept. God bless him.
