What makes you lean ‘Left’? What makes nearly all big cities ‘Left’?

Well, who else are they going to be voting for, the republicans want to take away democracy, ban abortion, and suppression of the vote? They want to make women 2nd class citizen and be able to dictate to them about healthcare.

If they make too many laws that suppress the vote, you will find the democrats the democrats will stand in long lines.

Like a poster said, Education. We are too smart to be led around for the republicans.
1. The poor and poorly educated are crammed together and given things for their votes.
2. The rich and liberally educated erroneously believe that giving people things helps them without detracting from society as a whole. Good intentions, but not realistic.
What are the primary issues that drive people to the Left…why are such driving forces so much more prevelant in urban metropolises?
I ask because thinking ‘Left‘ in America isn’t exactly the conventional ideolgy to adopt…right?
Your thoughts?
We are learning more each year.Most has to do with Public Education.
It is virtually run by leftist Teachers Union.Not that most teachers are
leftists but their Union heirarchy are.Like Oligarchs who run major
corporations and banks.Meaning it's a Top Down move.
More so each year.Now at fever pitch.
When you have most news being made and reported by a Mainstream Media virtually dominated by livid radicals with a mission { To control a narrartive } then this is
what one should expect.leftist talk and leftist thinking.A never ending stream of
Leftist conscience run amuck.

Thomas Jefferson had great disdain for large cities

Firstly, large cities spread a Pandemic at that time that killed 1 in 10 people, just like we saw New York City have the biggest numbers of people dying during our Pandemic. Considering this, cities are the least ideal places to be in a Pandemic for obvious reasons, and just a tender box waiting for the flame.

Secondly, Jefferson saw large cities as full of corruption which created an underclass that would eventually threaten the Republic at some point.

To his closest friend, James Madison, he wrote in 1787, the year of the American Constitution, “When we get piled upon one another in large cities, as in Europe, we shall become as corrupt as in Europe.”

From his disciplined reading of the Latin and Greek classics, Jefferson derived his belief that the ideal citizen of a republic was a modest family farmer living on the land, growing his own food, and providing his own shelter and clothing. Since this farmer depended on no other person or institution for his livelihood, he was truly free. His relations with the state were entirely voluntary rather than necessary. City dwellers, by contrast, could not grow their own food. By living away from the fecundity of nature, they were dependent on others for food, shelter, clothing and employment. This made them less free. But “those who labor in the earth,” Jefferson wrote, “are the chosen people of God.”

Jefferson believed that cities were breeding grounds not just for economic and political dependency, but that they generally attracted an urban underclass. An unemployed and perhaps unemployable urban proletariat was dangerous to peace and social stability.

“The mobs of great cities,” he wrote, “add just so much to the support of pure government, as sores do to the strength of the human body. It is the manners and spirit of a people which preserve a republic in vigor. A degeneracy in these is a canker which soon eats to the heart of its laws and constitution.”

He knew enough of European history, particularly of ancient Rome, to understand that urban mobs are susceptible to the blandishments of demagogues, who use what the French called the “canaille” (packs of urban “dogs”) to further their own despotic goals. In his only book, Notes on the State of Virginia, Jefferson wrote, “Dependance begets subservience and venality, suffocates the germ of virtue, and prepares fit tools for the designs of ambition.” Better that everyone find happiness on what Jefferson called “the republic of the farm.”

Jefferson believed that cities were unhealthy places. In the absence of modern sewage systems, people merely tossed the contents of their chamber pots (and often enough dead animals) into the gutters of the streets and waited for rain to carry it untreated down to the river. Garbage, mostly organic, was discarded out the back of the house. Pigs, dogs, and horses roamed the streets leaving their excrement behind. Colonial streets were narrow; urban crowding put people into close contact with each other. Modern notions of cleanliness and hygiene had not yet been formulated. There were no adequate storm drains to carry away standing water. Modern police forces did not exist. Nor did streetlamps except in a few privileged neighborhoods.

On the surface, it seems only logical that people in larger cities are more dependent on government for pretty much everything, which is why I think Europe has been so farther to the Left since everyone there lives in a major city.

All of the support for the DNC resides mostly in large cities, otherwise, it does not exist.
