Checking the news over lunch I see that the legislature of Illinois is trying to figure out how to fire Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel. This is in response to protests calling for his resignation. This comes only a week after the firing of Chicago Police Superintendent Garry McCarthy for covering up criminal activity by the CPD.
Chicago is not the only city that has suffered recently.
NYC Mayor Bill de Blasio has set NYC back more than 20 years, bringing back the homeless, crime, and squeegee men.
Baltimore is besieged by a record crime wave.
The major common characteristic of each of these cities is that they are Democrat strongholds, run by Democrats, some for 50 years or more.
We are watching in real time the failure of Liberal policies. It’s like watching the slow collapse of the Soviet Union.
What amazes me is that these local failures don’t stick to national candidates. From what I can tell Hillary and Bernie want to do at the federal level everything that the mayors of these cities did locally. Hillary is Emanuel. Sanders is de Blasio. The Democrat presidential candidates need to be made to own the failure of Democrat cities.
