Detroit: Leftist City in Ruins. Should Americans be wary?

The City of Detroit filed for bankruptcy in federal court July 18, signifying the official advent of failure from one of America’s most liberal cities.

It seems when something in this nation fails, and it is Conservative in nature, the news media will cover it relentlessly for weeks. Maybe months. Just to get their point across. But for Detroit. A city that is one of America’s MOST liberal cities, its failure and coming bankruptcy do not seem to be newsworthy to the big three. So in order for us to know what is going on there, we have to turn to Breitbart, and the Blaze, for CBS, NBC, ABC and MSNBC will not cover it.

From the article that I quoted from above, titled Detroit: A City in Ruin and a Warning for America, comes this:

January 2, 1962 was the last day that a Republican held the mayor’s office, and the city has been under uninterrupted Democrat and union rule ever since. What was once such a powerful hub of industry and prosperity has caved under the weight of big government and big union policies.

The state of Detroit.  A once great city is now in ruins due to Liberalism.

The state of Detroit. A once great city is now in ruins due to Liberalism.

Liberalism is not oppressive as much as it is depressive, and there is no better example of this than Detroit. With its 48 unions and nearly $20 billion in debt — an entire third of which is unfunded healthcare liabilities for city retirees — Detroit saw its peak population of nearly 2,000,000 in 1950 dwindle to about 700,000 today. Of those 700,000, a third live under the poverty level and a fifth are unemployed.

According to a letter from Michigan Governor Rick Snyder that accompanied the bankruptcy filing, Detroit’s murder rate is the highest it has been in 40 years, and the city is home to 78,000 abandoned buildings. In short, it is a city in absolute ruin.

Today’s Detroit is what big government liberalism has wrought. Worse yet, we are starting to see similar problems arise across the country, specifically in Illinois, New York, and California. Detroit abandoned the traditional American values of limited government, fiscal responsibility, and individual liberty and is currently suffering the consequences.

We must turn the tide of big government back towards the conservative principles that helped make America the greatest nation in history. America cannot afford to have more Detroit’s. We know better, the policies exist, and it is not too late to turn the tide.

Detroit’s fall is the best possible warning sign America can have.

And covers this one right. Detroit’s fall is the best possible warning sign America can have. But will we listen to that warning? I really can’t say. I would hope so.

But we have people in this nation now, who have become puppets for the liberal government, and have become insatiably addicted to the “free money and products” that the government gives out to whoever the government deems worthy. And those worthy are the ones that will vote for the liberal democrats and keep them in office.

You see, I have been in need of government assistance for some time now, but, because I am a White male, who is an American and I vote Conservative, I believe that is why the government will not help me or mine. But that is okay. Because I do not want to become addicted to government handouts because they only come from the people in the first place.

What we need to start doing here folks, is taking heed to the things and the cities that are failing. Detroit is just the next in line. Many more will follow, if they continue on the ways of the liberal left. Mark my words here. Laziness and slothfullness will never prosper. And those are the ways of the liberal left in this country. They always have been and today they are more brazen in their takeover of this nation than ever before. It is time they are all voted out of office.

Cause if we don’t do that one simple thing, this nation will NOT survive. That I guarantee you. Socialism is bound to fail because eventually you will run out of other people’s money. Then where will you be? This question is pertainant because, America is broke already

You not convinced yet? Watch this 13 minute video and it will tell you the rest of the story.

God Bless America
God Bless our Troops
Please give us the sense to do what we must.

I am a Reagan Conservative, who is very alarmed at the Liberals who have just lost their majority over our government, but continue to act like it never happened. They have to be stopped. NOW or even sooner.

    Let’s think about this for a minute. The destruction of Detroit didn’t happen overnight. It happened over YEARS; decades, in fact. It happened slowly enough for the people living there to see what was happening and yet, for over 40 years, they voted in one Democratic mayor and city administration after another. After a certain point you really can’t blame the Democrat politicians for the mess Detroit is in. They just did their liberal thing. It’s the people of Detroit who kept voting them in who are really to blame. And that’s the challenge for conservatives. We keep focusing on the liberal politicians and forget that they are put and kept in power by we, the people. It’s the people who must change and changing them is a far harder and time consuming task than simply working to get the “right” politicians in office. Are conservatives up to the challenge of changing the people? Are they willing to put in the time and hard work? That is the truly crucial question to come out of the collapse of Detroit. We’ll have to wait and see for the answer.
    reply from Robert: That is so true, and sadly, something I just didn’t even think about……I must be slipping.
