Steven Crowder reports on the economic situation in Detroit. (Video below)
“They’ve been promised the world, but have been left with this.”
The same “progressive” policies that have destroyed Detroit are going to destroy the rest of America. One must wonder if the policy makers truly believed that their socialist ideas for Detroit would actually work. Whatever the case may be, this is the end result — a perfect example of what not to do.
As Crowder points out in the video below, the people of Detroit and Michigan (and now the rest of the USA) willingly give up their liberty for increased government intervention and entitlements for education, health care and training programs.
The following quote, attributed to Benjamin Franklin comes to mind:
“They who can give up essential liberty to obtain a little temporary safety, deserve neither liberty nor safety.”
Those who give up essential liberties not only do not deserve liberty or safety, they are almost guaranteed to have neither. Detroit, in its current state, will be a paradise compared to what this country will look like in a decade.

Hat tip to Rick Blaine, who alerted us to Steven Crowder’s new video and commented that Detroit now looks similar to the set from the SHTF movie Children of Men, if not worse.
