Democrat run Cites lead the highest crime and murder rates

Dems vote with their emotions not their brains.

Why is it that every Democratic run city has the highest crime rates??


For example, Detroit, whose mayor has been indicted on felony charges, hasn't elected a Republican mayor since 1961. Buffalo has been even more stubborn. It started putting a Democrat in office back in 1954, and it hasn't stopped since.

Unfortunately, those two cities may be alone at the top of the poverty rate list, but they're not alone in their love for Democrats. Cincinnati, Ohio (third on the poverty rate list), hasn't had a Republican mayor since 1984. Cleveland, Ohio (fourth on the list), has been led by a Democrat since 1989. St. Louis, Missouri (sixth), hasn't had a Republican since 1949, Milwaukee, Wisconsin (eighth), since 1908, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania (ninth), since 1952 and Newark, New Jersey (10th), since 1907.

The only two cities in the top 10 that I didn't mention (Miami, Florida, and El Paso, Texas) haven't had Republicans in office either -- just Democrats, independents or nonpartisans.

Over the past 50 years, the eight cities listed above have had Republican leadership for a combined 36 years. The rest of the time -- a combined 364 years -- they've been led by Democrats.

Five of the 10 cities with the highest poverty rates (Detroit, Buffalo, St. Louis, Milwaukee, Philadelphia and Newark) have had a Democratic stranglehold since at least 1961: more than 45 years. Two of the cities (Milwaukee and Newark) have been electing Democrats since the first Model T rolled off the assembly line in 1908.

Two cities, 100 years, all Democrats.

If the definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting a different result, the asylums in those cities must be as full as the soup kitchens.

.....

We've talked a lot about "change" in this country recently, but there's a much more important catchphrase that we've neglected: "All politics is local." Maybe instead of focusing so much on who we put in charge of our country, we should focus more on who we put in charge of our cities.

Oh, and before I forget. The hateful politician who suggested that we should be "driving" or "leading" the poor out of poverty? It was Benjamin Franklin.

Good thing he never tried to run for mayor of Newark

    Oh it does matter, why would Democrat Mayors go out of their way to Hire Police from Republican Run Cities? Like Newark That Police Chief is from New York City was around when Rudy Giuliani started his Comp stat and if you look harder at other City’s run By Democrats’ you will find them actively trying to recruit top boss from Republican ran cities why would they do this if it didn’t matter, they could hire locally but they know for a fact that the Police Depts. Boss’s from Republican run City’s will get the job done.

    Democrats run on the idea of helping the poor and the minority...
    Most Democrats vote for Democrats because they think they will get taken care of by the Government and they depend on welfare and other handouts..................so many of their electected officials (Democrats) turn out to be criminals and take advantage of their position...cheating the people (government) out of millions and more!

    The majority of blacks are Democrat.

    A lot has to do with lack of Jobs, and the lies these people believe from their leaders. Democrats claim to help the little guy and even go so far as rolling out th red carpet to bring more into the inner cites from the 3rd world, but in reality they import poverty and crime. Then they claim that republicans take away Jobs by free trade, what a joke, there would be a whole lot more jobs if the Democrats stopped welcoming the ' free trade" of immigrants, and also stopped taxing small business, who in paper make a lot of money but after expenses and taxes can hardly afford to employ. want examples? Well, Obamas claim they will reduce taxes on the middle income people bu in reality the business in the community where these people live will be taxed more, under his plan, because they own more and bring in more money and can afford it, yes, but, these costs will just be passed on to the middle class in the form of higher prices, he is just playing a shell game. Its the lies, that keep people in poverty, a little a carrot like winning the lottery, the poor just keep electing somebody who Will promise to give them a chicken in their pot but these chicken plucker's have no concern for the community bequests businesses and employers, who are taxed have to pass these costs on to t...'

Why should those who work hard have to give their money to those who don't, how does this create jobs, no it creates a nanny state which contributes to more crime, and in the meantime, those who propose such laws, and over regulations are eating 25,0000 dollar plate dinners in Malibu to hear old Holley wood celebrities, say how hard the economy is,,, give USA a break.... vote republican!
