Jeffrey is right. Liberal policies have caused even more damage than this to Detroit going back more than 50 years. In the mid 1920s and on into the 1950s Detroit was the wealthiest city in the world. It had the highest per capita income, the highest percentage of home ownership, the highest per capita value of real estate, fabulous parks, museums, wonderful schools, fine public buildings and homes, a great theater district and more. By the mid 1950s its population had grown to 1.86 million and it had the largest department store in the world (Hudsons).
President Barack Obama travelled to Michigan this week and made his case for class war in defense of the welfare state.

We need to take more money from the rich, he said, or schools will not be able to afford books, students will not be able to afford college, and disabled children will not get health care.

"Our economic success has never come from the top down," said Obama. "It comes from the middle out.It comes from the bottom up."

Obama spoke these words a few miles from Detroit -- the reductio ad absurdum of his argument.

If America continues down...
