Politics: Are these 5 reasons true on why Detroit fell to Liberalism? If not what are they?

1.) Unions crippled the auto industry

2.) White citizens were demonized until they left

3.) Out-of-control crime helped drive much of the black middle class out of the city

4.) Reckless government spending bankrupted the city

5.) The government is completely incompetent

    Yes, all true

    also, the perpetual election of Democrat leaders ensured their demise

    Detroit was pillaged by its own politicians, notably Democrats, who took the money and left the city to rot.

    the companies left in large part due to nafta...

    that was pretty much the only reason...

    then all that was left were poor people with no jobs, which turn to crime... and a city gov. with no real tax base, which of course will go bankrupt...

    Nurse a demographic of the underclass on three generations of resentment politics that imbues them with the notion that they are not responsible for any negative outcome in their lives and you get Detroit.

    It isn't "liberalism" it is textbook leftist resentment politics.

    Liberalism didn't have a damn thing to do with it, and I am not a fan or defender of liberalism in any of its forms, including classical liberalsim.

    It's really pathetic that cons can't come up with anything better than this sort of nonsense.
