When you see cities like Seattle, Detroit, Baltimore, or San Francisco, and how much they’re falling apart, how can you not conclude that liberal (or socialist) policies don’t work.

In each case, you have rampant homelessness, crime, poor, drugs, and a serious lack of standards or expectations upon the citizenry.

But also, in each case, those cities have been run entirely by Democrats, liberals, socialists… whichever label you prefer.

How can anyone conclude that conservatives or Republicans would be to blame. They haven’t been anywhere near those places for years.

Doing the same thing over and over and expecting a different result actually IS NOT the definition of insanity. But it is stupid.

Is this it? Is this the conclusion? Are our citizens just catastrophically ignorant? If so, it seems trying to get them to vote the other way isn’t the next step.

It seems like the conservative campaign could almost be a gambler’s “what have you got to lose?” But I think it wouldn’t work because the people voting for progressives think this is just the way it’s going to be, and at least you won’t have those hateful racist bigots around.

This is the price we pay for the inept marketing of conservatism. I just hope it’s not too late.
