WHy is it?

Why is it that the places in this country with the most social problems including violence, drug and alcohol addiction, crime rates, broken homes tend to be democratic and somehow think they know best how to run the country. I am referring to the inner cities in most states

  • I don't think they say they know best, but those places have such a broken society that the leaders are desperate to try anything new that might help make things better.

  • But if there way of thinking and choices result in that type of environment then why should the country go more with that philosophy as a way to be?

  • Have compassion for those less fortunate, regardless of how they got there. No baby was ever born saying I'm gonna be a crack head and live in the inner cities with crime, there are losers who live in the McMansion republican areas too, but their choice of drugs are the Mamas who pop the pills, their crimes are money laundering, see what I'm saying. Those poorer areas vote demo because it's the demos that help them out most. Being a looser isn't party related.

  • Why is it parents refuse to discipline their kids and let them run with gangs or dont keep track of them? Why are parents allowed to give up on their own kids? I seriously doubt your democrats and crime statistic's. It is the poor people in general who dont teach morals or values to their kids and who encourage them to be lazy and rob people instead of working hard to get ahead, like the majority of us do.

  • Because those people want the government to take care of them, and thats what democrats believe in. If they didn't they wouldn't be in that position!

  • This is so sad, I can not believe people equate good morals and income.
