“The American people will never knowingly adopt Socialism. But under the name of ‘liberalism’ they will adopt every fragment of the Socialist program, until one day America will be a Socialist nation, without knowing how it happened.”

Socialist Party presidential candidate Norman Thomas

Detroit goes dark

Rampant political corruption, labor-union greed, liberalism, and utter incompetence have turned America's 5th largest city into a pitiful shell of a city with only 60% of the population of 10 years ago. Entire Detroit neighborhoods have been totally abandoned, even by crack dealers and gangs.

In an effort to cut infrastructure and public service costs, the city will be cutting power to half of the 88,000 street light in the city's outlying areas. This is to coax the few remaining residents to concentrate toward the urban areas where police, fire, and ambulance service can afford to go. Certainly as darkness takes over the city each night, so will the criminal elements. I guess those folks who live in the darkness are on their own when the gangs kick in their doors.

This is the inevitable culmination of urban liberalism.....poverty, disrepair, crime, decrepitude, hopelessness, and despair.....in short, Detroit. As long as democrats are in charge of Detroit, don't look for much improvement....or street lights.

A REAL post-apocalypse scenario. We've read the books, seen the movies, now we have the real deal. The only difference is it was supposed to be caused by a nuclear war not liberalism. Maybe all the nuclear war scenarios were just a metaphor?

Nuclear holocaust or liberalism....the end results are similar.

One might say that liberalism is worse than nuclear holocaust because your will to survive as an individual remains intact in nuclear war, whereas liberalism rots your mind from the inside until you are little more than a democrat-voting zombie....or am I overstating it?

I think the show "The Walking Dead" picks up were Detroit left off. I cannot watch the show. I think it is one of the worst shows on TV. The storyline is cliche, the acting abysmal, and the fact that UGA fans seem to love the show turn me off big time.
