Government Motors Is Alive And Detroit Is Dead

The fundamental transformation of Detroit is complete, as socialism’s theme park succumbs to government run amok, a reminder that government isn’t the solution to our problems but their cause.

Detroit’s response to a declining business climate was more taxes, fewer city services and bloated pensions for workers in the only growth area — government.

In the face of government incompetence, it was the people of Detroit who went on strike. More than a million people moved out.

Detroit is the rotten fruit of uncontested progressive socialism. In 1960, Detroit had the highest per capita income in the U.S.; today, it’s the poorest of our large cities.
