Under Trump the top 10% is paying little to no taxes at all while the working class is paying the freight to run the country.

I haven't turned to crime. I know people that I went to high school with who have turned to crime and drugs. One person I went to high school with is in prison for murder. I know a guy who got busted for burglary. I have a few classmates who got into drugs.

And all of the filthy streets with human feces, horrible poverty, jacked up housing costs b/c of anti-growth policy, etc.

Conservatives can't solve every problem like crime and failure in schools but we don't add to problems by supporting open borders and sanctuary cities. republican party has also tougher on crime party and supports vouchers to allow parents to send their kids to other schools, which Democrats oppose.

If you go downtown in Greenville, Huntsville, etc , the streets are not filthy like San Fran and LA. rats are not running around.

it's a fact that California has become less safe and more expensive and more filthy since Republicans were able to win the governorship and pick up the state in presidential elections.

the high crime areas with low ranked schools in the south overwhelmingly vote Democrat.

Yeah, I like Tennessee, especially part of the area around Chattanooga, part of the area around Nashville (Franklin, Brentwood, Leiper's Fork), and part of the area around Knoxville (although CD member expatCA, until recently, lived in that area and he has posted that the air quality can take a toll if you actually live there).

My point is this. Someone brought up that California was better when it was ran by Republicans. I answered by saying that it depends. If you lived in San Diego or Silicon Valley, of course. If you lived in East L.A., South Central L.A., parts of Oakland, southeast San Francisco (Bayview-Hunters Point), or Compton, life was often not nice. Drugs, poverty, violence, blight in those areas.

And I brought up Alabama to drive the point further home. Alabama is a Republican-led state. It ranks near the bottom in terms of education. It has one of the highest murder rates in the USA. It has one of the highest poverty rates in the USA. And while some suburbs in the Birmingham area are nice, Birmingham proper is in rough shape. A murder rate of 52 murders per 100,000. A city which has been declining in population since the 1960s. Alabama is a Republican state, but it has alot of places that are in bad shape. Birmingham, Fairfield, Bessemer, Pritchard, Anniston, Selma. And then Alabama also has the Black Belt region. One of the poorest areas in the country.
Noted. Although some of those areas of California have also been bad under Democrat 'rule'.

You must not live in California because they are not meeting any of those obligations. Bottom in infrastructure, education, affordability, housing. High in government inefficiency, waste, corruption, homeless, poor, illegals.

Texas, a disgrace to our country - can't even walk into a Wad-Mart there in safety.

Murder and gun violence rate 3X higher than New England. A disgrace I tell you.

Trump even thinks the places he lives are a disgrace. Even been to W. Palm Beach? NYC?

Basically, he's anti-American. He thinks we all are a disgrace...except Putin of course.

In Tennessee, Nashville is my favorite.

Many areas in California have been in bad shape under Republican or Democratic rule. Party doesn't seem to matter.

says supporters of Omar who dismissed 9-11 as no big deal and said America is no better than Al Queda. Ya'll get mad if Trump and conservatives suggest she go back to her home country if she thinks America is the devil.

liberals love athletes kneeling during the national athem which Trump criticizes because he hates America. lol

so patriotic.

you are doing Soviet style propaganda here, saying the opposite of the truth is the truth.
