Well if Detroit would dump the corrupt, incompetent democratic party and elect a different slate of politicians to run city hall, things in Detroit could start to improve in a slow but steady way. Now that the state of Michigan has total control over Detroit's finances along with the finances of the cities of Flint and Saginaw. You would think that urban residents in these three Michigan cities would take the hint and realize that the democrats monopoly control of city hall has to end. But the stupid fools keep voting the democratic party line come election day. The exact same sad, sickening situation has been playing out in most other older northern cities like St Louis, Milwaukee, Toledo, Cleveland, Buffalo, Newark, and Baltimore. Come election day in these and most other northern locales, the damn fool voters blindly vote the democratic party line and it is the same old shit for the next four years. Go figure.
