The failure of Detroit: Liberalism's Ground Zero Part 2
1. live in areas which are safe
2. live in areas that have good schools
3. live in areas that have low taxation
People who have financial options available to them will always exercise their options to move to areas that have the three criteria that I've mentioned. Progressives might want to reread that last statement. People who live in the inner cities where crime is rampant, the public schools are not educating kids and are also dangerous plus the citizens are taxed to death live in those areas by "necessity not by desire". This is common sense. The left can live in their dream world and blame Detroit's bankruptcy on the auto industry, but that excuse simply doesn't cut reality.Many major cities across the nation are suffering population decline. Nobody who can afford it wants to live in a drug infested war zone. A family looking for a house isn't going to ask a realtor to find them an area that has high taxes with a bad school system and that has high crime. The reason why it's being said that liberalism destroyed Detroit is, because it did. This paragraph from the Detroit News back in February states the obvious.
