    It should surprise no one. Leftist governance has resulted in massive problems in these, as well as other cities. Crime. Homelessness. Lack of public services. Massive debt.

    How did they get that way?

    San Francisco has not had a Republican mayor since 1964, the height of Motown music in one of the other cities we are discussing. For the past fifty-plus years, San Francisco has been led by a procession of Democrats.

    Chicago's last Republican mayor finished his term in 1931, almost a century ago, followed by a string of Democrat mayors up to the present time. At a national level, Chicago is currently represented by Democrat senators Dick Durbin and Tammy Duckworth.

    Detroit's last Republican mayor finished his term in 1962, around the time the Supremes were singing "Where Did Our Love Go?" Now they would be singing, "Where did our city go?" Since the early 1960s, Detroit has had a succession of Democrat mayors, including Coleman Young and their famous hip-hop mayor Kwame Kilpatrick, now serving a long prison term. Michigan, similar to Illinois and California, has two Democrat U.S. senators.

    San Francisco is not in a state of chaos. The other two cities were abandoned by capitalists and began the downturn immediately. But hell blame democrats it makes it someone elses fault and you have no guilt.

    Agreed. Everybody's cities are littered with heroin needles and bums defecating in the streets. It's the new normal.

    I think they blame democrats because it was the democratic administrations that drove the capitalist out. Cause and effect at work.

    Institutionalized racism through section 8 housing is your culprit. And it's been going on for decades, "on purpose". It's the perfect con game. Vilify the victims of institutionalized prisons without borders, then lock up the affected into the prison industrialized complex for profit, and you keep the blacks where you want them. This scheme has been going on ever since section 8 housing began.

    Democrats understand what the problem is. Republicans started the program in 1974. Stop blaming Democrats for a Republican policy made possible to keep blacks in segregated housing units. Blacks didn't have a say so, or an opportunity to branch out away from the institutionalized predicament of Section 8. America's Shame: How U.S. Housing Policy Is Failing the Country's Poor

    And it's been going on ever since.
