Lost in the election conversation is a discussion of what liberalism does to the quality of life for the regular Joe and Jane trying to live in these decaying cities.The stores that locals depend on disappear. One would think it would be possible for city dwellers to connect the dots and think about changing the governance of their cities. But no, they continue to vote headlong into continued democrat leadership that only brings them more pain and suffering.
We are focused on the upcoming presidential race. But is is the thousands of other choices for candidates that we have when we get to the polls. State and Local candidates. The candidates that will really effect our living on a day to day basis. Whether it is the local school boards, council men and women, mayors – these are the people that will wind up controlling planning and zoning, Judges who will decide what to do with our criminals.
Not to be forgotten often are the “questions” on the ballots. One only needs to look at States such as California to have a look at what “proposition” questions have done to their fair State.
There can be no better example in what progressivism does to a city than San Fransisco:
The effects of allowing chaos to prevail in liberal run cities across America might not be obvious to liberals now, but when their cities empty out completely, it’s going to become crystal clear.
Such is the case in San Francisco, where the city’s new normal of shoplifting and chaos has driven another Walgreens pharmacy out of the city.
The move to close the Walgreens at Van Ness and Eddy came after “months of seeing its shelves repeatedly cleaned out by brazen shoplifters”, according to the SF Chronicle. The location served “many older people” who lived in the area.
One customer told the paper: “All of us knew it was coming. Whenever we go in there, they always have problems with shoplifters.”
When the Chronicle went to visit the store, they noticed “aisle after aisle of near empty shelves” and said that beauty products seemed to be a favored target. While the Chronicle was in the store, a man with a mask on walked in, emptied two shelves into a bag and walked out the door.

Other than that all is well in the swamp.
