It has been stated by many people for some time now.

Not surprised.

One thing I noticed is it seems like the majority of all these places are run by democrats.That is why the country is really failing it has become way way way way way way to one sided.Divisive bahavior continues with the left wing media dominating all media but their viewers and ratings are going down the tubes.Conseravtives then dominate the radio talk shows which causes more divisive behavoir.
The left wing has to much power in media and influence the countrys politics and the journalist do not do their jobs to confront them.Which causes the right wing media to get sick and tired and fed up with them.Why you are seeing this Tea Party and Libiterian movement who are sick of the 2 parties fighting and corrupting the country.

No one wants to answer you sheepslayer... I wonder why? You may have struck a nerve, but rational thinking usually does that.

Is it any surprise that these partisan fools spouting the political bs don't reply to any indication of rationale or logic?

Seriously, I cannot describe how humorous it is to see republican propaganda. This is one part of why I love ATS.

Cites have there own face and personality....whatever they do out in the countryside.

What an ignorant thread. How exactly are people supposed to respond politely to an ignorant thread when the motto here is supposed to be deny ignorance? So shouldn't threads like this not exist?

Correlation is not cause - the poor are more likely to vote Democrat because they get a better deal under them. The rich are more likely to vote Republican because they think they get a better deal under them.. RABID AUSTRIAN ECONOMICS is not a way to reverse 10 years of REPUBLICAN KEYNESIAN economics (under Bush, since Clinton who paid off the national debt) followed by 5 years of DEMOCRAT KEYNESIAN economics (under Obama)... There is NO QUICK SOLUTION without making things worse (probably much worse, very quickly).

....Unless, unless we can come to some GLOBAL AGREEMENT on a GLOBAL DEBT JUBILEE followed by a New World Order and One World Currency... Unlucky, WE'VE BEEN HAD!

Took me a while but I found the one really important sentence in that wall. They were run by Democrats.

Thank you.

Who writes these worst city reviews anyway? Those one sided polls of certain citizens can be a huge deception. The evidence you showed was for recently replaced democratic leadership so that means now that people aren't satisfied with the city after the republicans took over. Evidence can be evaluated in more than one way based on the desired perception of the person looking at it. Examine your perception first when looking at things and see what you learn.

The only way to fix the government is to fire ALL the people who created the problem. That means that every DEMOCRAT AND REPUBLICAN must go.

We need to elect citizen statesmen who are not obligated to criminal enterprises which control them. Citizen statesmen who love America more than they love power and money. Citizen statesmen who work for the people who elected them, not the corporations and special interests who contributed to their campaigns.

When DEMOCRATS AND REPUBLICANS get elected, they conspire to scam, defraud, and extort money from the American citizen and taxpayer.

One percent of Americans are millionaires. Forty seven percent of Congress are millionaires. Who is being represented?

I think this is what you call a false equivalency.

If we follow the same line of thinking, what does it say about Republicans when we hear that the the biggest welfare states in the country are Red states?

The game can be played both ways and in the end it serves no real purpose to solve real problems.


It says we need to get rid of REPUBLICANS AND DEMOCRATS. Just getting rid of one or the other is not going to fix the problem.

The above post addresses that. Second line.

I am not a Democrat, but this (OP) may be putting the cart before the horse. Poor regions tend democrat, which explains why a suffering region is under democratic governance. Not necessarily the other way around.

Google "hegelian dialectic". That's all Repubs and Dems are.....two opposing forces to keep the sheeple occupied.

In the meantime, the satanic world drives onward to its God-ordained conclusion.

Today would be a really good day to repent of your sins, and call on the name of the Lord.....because the time is at hand. This world is going down.....

Amen, and amen.

Now that is very logical. I'd guess you aren't in politics

There's a lot more to it than that. Typically larger cities are more liberal, many of the best cities to live in also have democrats running them. Voting maps back this up, large cities tend to be blue while smaller towns and rural areas are red. There's a myriad of reasons proposed for that and none of them are really important. All it means though is that most cities being under democrat control is pretty much standard with the voting habits of large groups of people. The comparison is completely meaningless, partisan hacks don't want to admit it though, they would rather be blinded by ideology.

Yeah it's pitiful at best, especially since the correlations of such are clearly dubious. Either way sheepslayer wrote it well, I just find the youth in this country to very deluded and easily composed. I suppose if I start talking real LOUD and waving my BIG stick I may gain a following of idiots too. The blind leading the blind.

Although I absolutely agree with you, a political class system gets us no where, that was not the OPS intention.

I started this inquiry with only a gut feeling; but what I found appears to have borne-out my suspicions.
I still haven't had enough time to see if this holds true over longer periods of time, or even why it holds true at all. I will check to see if academics or peer-reviewed analyses have examined this phenomenon.

maybe you could also researech into the density of the free ... Øbama Phones in those cities...juristictions

a $2.5 Billion per year PERK, used to buy those voters (bought by democrats)
funny, back in the '60s a bus would pick up a bunch of us "street people' and for a pack of smokes that a street 'organizer' would give us... we would be whisjed off to a voting poll station


that .50 cent pack has INFLATED to a (estimated) $30 per month cell-phone plan with a freeby phone device ~likely with NSA racking & voice/text recording capabilities~ even for the LowInfo voters that are being targeted by & for the demoncrats
