You’re like a broken record

What is your response to crime in places like Oklahoma City, OK and Miami, Florida. Both cities with higher crime rates than NYC and both cities run by Republicans in Republican ran states. Cult line devotion to a political party is so Communistic

The response is that we don’t live in Oklahoma or Florida. The city was much, much better under Giuliani’s Republican rule. Cherry-picking a few cities in red states doesn’t change the fact that virtually EVERY blue city that has been run by Democrats for decades is a disaster. So, if we’re going to cherry-pick, let’s talk about Chicago, Detroit, Newark, Oakland, Philadelphia, etc. Chicago has had a Democrat mayor for over 100 years. At an average of 50 shootings a weekend, you have a bigger chance of being shot in Chicago than you do in an actual war zone. The Democrat platform for cities has been proven to be an absolute disaster and it will only get worse from here.

Miami is so much more dangerous than New York … That’s why everybody is leaving New York and moving to Miami… Please remind me: How many hedge fund guys have relocated their firms from New York to Miami im the past few years?
