Detroit Democrats = Decline in population
From 1900-1960 there were 23 mayors in Detroit 6-Democrats 17-Republicans out of those 60 years Democrats were in office - 12 years; Republicans were in office 48 years.The population went from 285,704 -1,670,144(1,849,568 in 1950). in 60 years republicans changed Detroit from a big city to a Metropolis. Now From 1962 - 2010 there have been 7-Democrats and 0-Republican Mayors giving democrats complete reign over Detroit for 48 years. The population went from 1,670,144 in 1960 - 714,000 today. In 48 years Republicans added 1,384,440 people to Detroit's population; in 48 years Democrats have lost 956,144 people.
Detroit use to be a great place to live but Democrats have turned it into a cesspool of crime, corruption, and high taxes. They have forced most of the jobs to leave the city or go out of business. This trend can not continue, its time for the republicans to take our city back. If you go to any other major city in this country people would fight you to live in a loft or penthouse in the downtown area of that city, but in Detroit you couldn't pay me to live there! Living in the city just means you now have to pay a city income tax even if your job isn't in Detroit. Living in Detroit means you have a chance to get shot, robbed, carjacked, rapped, or some other horrible thing and all this with a mayor who is going to rip off the tax payers and kill strippers (allegedly).
So in conclusion we need to stop electing Democrats to office, drive the criminals out, lower taxes on companies, and find a way to bring jobs back to our once great city. Unfortunately I don't believe this will ever happen in our life time. So the easiest answer is to leave the city until the criminals destroy it, then maybe we can bulldoze it and make a parking lot for a Cosco and start over in a different location.
