What
do the top ten cities

Detroit, MI  (1st
on the poverty rate list)
hasn’t elected
a Republican mayor since
1961.


Buffalo, NY  (2nd) hasn’t elected
a Republican mayor since 1954.


Cincinnati ,  OH  (3rd)
hasn’t elected a
Republican mayor since 1984.

Republican mayor since 1989.

Miami, FL (5th) has never had

a Republican mayor.

————————————–

“You cannot help the poor by destroying the rich.

You cannot strengthen the weak by weakening the strong.

You cannot bring about prosperity by discouraging thrift.

You cannot lift the wage earner up by pulling the wage payer down.

You cannot further the brotherhood of man

by inciting class hatred.

You cannot build character and courage by taking away people’s initiative and
independence.

You cannot help people permanently

by
doing for them, what they could and should do for themselves.”


Abraham Lincoln
