Then let's look at Detroit objectively, was it singularly liberal ideology that caused its collapse? Or was it a combination of that and the big 3 continuously outsourcing jobs so they can make an easier buck?
And before you go on the warpath about Obama bailing them out keep in mind that ford never took a bailout.
Removing jobs from the market with no alternative employment may have had something to do with Detroit's downfall.
Compound that with the housing crisis, it's a recipe for disaster.
So yeah, Detroit is a hellhole, believe me, i lived there i know.
But making sure government doesn't work at all isn't the answer, republican congressmen blocking all appointments doesn't help government run efficiently.
All they were doing is causing chaos, and causing inefficiency. Which in turn wastes taxpayer money.
