    Detroit — just like a Third World country

    Why would anyone live there? In fact why live in a dying blue model city or state? Taxes are outrageous, property values fall, businesses leave or go bankrupt, jobs have no future, city services are the worst, crime is everywhere, there is no reason to stay. Move to a red city or state, which is growing, and thriving, and watch your property appreciate, businesses moving in and expanding, workers getting raises and promotions, get a police, fire, or medical response if you have to dial 911, see children learning in school instead of dodging bullets and drug dealers.

      If they take your advice and move they will see all of the things you describe and think how wonderful it would be if only the politics were the same as the place they left behind. They will campaign vigorously and cast votes to try to make it so.
