I've never disliked a place before. So I have zero preference on this.

Miami or El Paso if the illegal immigration is not put under control, then the illegals will technically not be in America anymore. After that, San Francisco (not including Silicon Valley). I'm not a fan of New York with its rude attitudes, unfriendly people invading the South, its liberalism, etc but NYC is economically critical and while the South is rising again the West is economically becoming dominant NY is still important. most of the money in Miami comes from foreign countires anyway and most of the banks there are based in Latin America like Mexico, Brazil, Argentina, etc. El Paso is also overrun with illegal Mexicans and drug runners.

San Francisco itself is a nice tourist attraction but if I had to choose a second city to kick out after Miami they would be it Frisco with the gay movement, liberalism, hippies, anti-Americanism, etc. However Silicon Valley has to stay because of the immense economic impact and contributions to the nation and the world.

Prob. Detriot, just not sure the city can make a comeback, GM would be a loss, but we'd still have Ford and Chrysler

Yeah b/c it must be really "American" to want to kick out a city b/c you don't like their politics or the type of people there. Your stereotyping and ignorance here is beyond nauseating and very anti-American.

Well the politics determinate who becomes the President of the ENTIRE United States so getting rid of some liberals will make America a better place, and preventing Obama from being elected again.

Plus ILLEGAL immigrants are not Americans are they? Both San Francisco and South Florida probably will vote Democrat, and probably will support people who are sympthetic to illegal immigrants and that will negatively impact the entire country. I wonder if San Francisco was not included if California would still even be a blue state. There are many Republicans and conservatives in Southern California, including MANY in San Diego where you are, Palm Springs and Orange County. I've heard its because of the illegal immigration and anchor babies that are changing the politics of California.
