    In among the most liberal and democratic category are the four seriously distressed, financially troubled cities of Baltimore, Buffalo, Chicago, and Detroit. Thanks to 50+ years of democratic monolithic rule, these four older northern cities are in serious trouble. It isn't just racial and ethnic tensions that brought these four cities down. It is the longtime rule of the corrupt, incompetent democrats with their tax and spend policies, pandering to both crooked organized labor and the unmotivated urban poor along with all their costly silver bullet redevelopment projects that have ruined these four cities and almost all other older northern cities both over and under 250,000 in population.

    i noticed the city of Colorado Springs is very very conservative and on the chart about where it should be. This town is the head quarters for more than a few right wing groups and has some military facilities.

    Buffalo NY is liberal, good for them.

    Buffalo is getting a bit too liberal along with Baltimore, Chicago, and Detroit. The donkey dorks have turned large areas of these four cities either into urban renewal disaster areas or glorified holding tanks for the unmotivated urban poor. It is time to kick the democrats out of city hall.
