Planning on moving from California to Texas or vice versa? Be sure to learn this handy guide that will help you communicate with the locals little bit better:
You have probably heard the saying, “Insanity is doing the same thing again and again and expecting a different outcome each time.”
This phrase could pretty much sum up the mindset of the American Liberal or Progressive because the same failed policies are implemented everywhere they go.
For example, look at the disasters that Chicago has become after the Democratic Party has had a monopoly on running the city for decades.
Massive amounts of poverty and an out of control homicide rate.
In fact, Chicago is a city with roughly 2.8 million residents and the city closed 2016 with a total of 762 homicides.
New York City, has a population of around 8.6 million and finished 2016 with 335 homicides.
In other words, Chicago has a third the population of New York City and more than twice the number of homicides.
Why the difference?
The answer is simple. During the 1990’s, Republican Rudy Giuliani was elected as the Mayor of New York City and he enacted two major policy changes for the city that was seemingly unable to get a handle on its growing crime epidemic.
Giuliani beefed up the police force, adding more police onto the streets, and he enacted a policy called “Broken Windows.”
The idea behind “Broken Windows” was to crack down on the smaller crimes (littering, loitering, public drunkenness) and to focus on areas where crime is likely to occurs (areas with a lot of broken windows).
The philosophy was that when the city enforced minor crime violations, criminals would be less likely to try to get away with major crimes.
The result was a steady decrease in crime, in New York City, across the board.
Political pundits will go back and forth about why the “Broken Windows” policies, initiated by a Republican, worked, but the point is that they did.
Yet the Democrats that are running Chicago will likely never give the theory an opportunity to make a difference in the city.
Even worse, the population of Chicago will likely continue to elect Democrats to run the city, ensuring that their misery and suffering continues for generations to come.
As we stated, in the beginning, “Insanity is doing the same thing again and again and expecting a different outcome each time.”
