In case you're wondering, we already have places in the USA where we've fully implemented all the "great ideas" Progressives are trying to force on the entire country. These ideas include, anti-business, pro-union, high tax and regulation Nanny state gone wild. In the heartland we have Detroit, once the epicenter of American commerce and the symbol of US entrepreneurship. The vehicles they manufactured were the envy of the world and easily accessible to almost every American. Detroit is now a dead, bankrupt city brought low by the UAW and one Party Democrat rule for generations. In the East we have Newark, another one-Party run city, the second unsafest city in the county, (take a guess which is the first). The city is in financial trouble and instead of telling the unions to take a hit on their coffer draining pension, the city will cut CURRENT police force. Can you imagine anything more boneheaded and dangerous and suicidal? The state of CA is de facto bankrupt and they just refused to postpone business killing Prop 23. They have committed economic suicide and will ask the rest of the country to bail them out. When will even Democrats realize their ideas suck?
