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.
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 Breitbart.com 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
