THE DEATH OF INDUSTRY IN AMERICA, LIES DIRECTLY ON THE SHOULDERS OF 'LIBERAL SOCIALISM'!!!
Despite the above rants from the "party of the people" here we have a perfect example of American Liberalism. Detroit was once the center of industry in this country. Our once proud city of multicultural, middle class America, has declined to the equivalent of an urban prairie. Once the 4th largest city in the country, has now been decimated by political corruption, 'Progressive' chicanery and urbanization by proxy.
Since the Liberal takeover from Jerome Cavanaugh (tried embracing Liberal 'diversity', see what That got him)
Law Abiding citizenry's Mass exodus out of the city into the suburbs, to escape the crime, drugs and corruption, has essentially doomed the industrial hub of the 'Closed Shop' (forced Union) Rust Belt
Coleman Young, a five term mayor, who espoused the 'Progressive Party' and the AFL-CIO, disenfranchised the population with a mass exodus out of the city to the suburbs. Restrictive city taxes created more blight as industries moved out. During his tenure as mayor, a 45% drop in population created the footprint of what Detroit is today.
Subsequent 'Liberal Politics' and their socialism intent, has created Alonzo Bates, charged with fraud and racketeering charges. City Council member Monica Conyers, pleaded guilty to conspiracy and bribery charges. Kwame Kilpatrick recently found guilty of corruption, conspiracy, perjury and obstruction of justice.
Crime, Drugs, Poverty, (Murder rate 5 times national avg, 7 out of 10 go unsolved) Illiteracy-plagued Detroit has a 75% high school dropout rate in spite of an above national average, student education allowance. City council corruption, 70,000 abandoned buildings, 50% unemployment and no hope of recovery, leads Detroit to the place it is today. This is the result of abhorent management, allowing this urban decay to now prostitute itself to Hollywood, as props for massive explosions of derelict buildings for special effects use.
Predictably the Liberals will continue to blame everyone but themselves, for the ruin of Detroit. If the blame isn't theirs, then who's is it?
(added note: there were over 400 deadly Riots in America during the Liberal Leftists 'Takeover'
The only good thing about Detroit today is that the environmentalists should be happy, as the once greatest industrial city in the world, is slowly returning..... to nature.
