Liberal politics have transformed once-great cities in the Midwest and back east into dumps, and now the same thing is happening to three once-great west coast cities. From Michael Snyder at theeconomiccollapseblog.com:
Once upon a time, San Francisco, Los Angeles and Seattle were three of the most beautiful cities on the entire planet. I know that this is hard to imagine today, but there was a time when millions of people eagerly moved out to the west coast for a better quality of life. Sadly, the reverse is true today. Millions of people are moving away from our major cities on the west coast because of the hellholes that they have become. A former Seattle police officer that was recently interviewed by a reporter from KOMO News was very honest about the fact that he would never want to raise a family in Seattle because of the hellhole that it has become. Every night he saw the worst of Seattle firsthand, and he finally felt forced to quit because city officials would not allow him to effectively do his job. An explosion of homelessness in our major west coast cities has fueled a wave of crime, drugs and human degradation unlike anything we have seen before, and in many cases our law enforcement officials have their hands tied and are literally being prevented from cleaning up the streets.
Right now, more than half a million people are homeless in the United States. As the economy gets worse, that number will continue to rise.
Many homeless Americans are law-abiding citizens that have just had a tough break. Everyone gets knocked down in life at some point, and we need to do all that we can to help those law-abiding citizens get back on their feet.
