I'm a liberal, and I'm a young professional type who is amongst a growing number who plans to stay and reinvent Scranton. To me "liberalism" is indicative of vitality. Just look at how prosperous all of our nation's most liberal cities are---San Francisco, New York City, Boston, etc.

I would say it will be a long time. The infrastruture is really bad and the price sof land is bad as is transportation. The areas that have warmer climates and the ones with reasonable land are alot of land are the growing areas of the country. lookat the budget problem california has and that is not good at all for the future; as it means poor likely hood of much infrastructure improvements in the near future.Liberal means anti-business and high taxes; a poor indicator of expansion in the world market now days.

So what? I lived in Seattle, Minneapolis, London and Glasgow. ALl these cities are liberal, expensive, and are thriving. Seattle also has 50,000 Boeing Union Employees. That city is a healthy mix of Union and Non-Union. London and the UK are much more liberal with higher taxes and nationalized healthcare and their economy is is growing. The pound is almost 2/1 to the dollar.

That's OK, you make higher wages, there's no free lunch. As conservatives constantly tell us.

Republican? Yes. Conservative? Nope. Republican and Conservative spoken in the same breath these days is an oxymoron.
