Because of that reality, Detroiters who do move to the suburbs as you suggest - voting with their feet - are almost always voting themselves a TAX INCREASE in doing so. One can get a three bedroom home in Detroit for under $10,000.00. There are some available for as little as $2,500.00 and that is an intact home. Just cross the line into Dearborn or Southfield and you will expect to many many times that for the same size home. Because you are now paying five to ten times as much for the home, even if your tax rate is half of that in the city, you still end up paying a great deal more in taxes due to the home value differences.

    You are right that people did vote with their feet by leaving Detroit. However, it had precious little to do with liberalism or taxation since they normally moved to Wayne County suburbs where the people in charge were also Democrats and the taxes ended up even more than they were paying.
    It seems that people are willing to pay more in taxes, as well as uproot their families, if it means they can remove themselves from incompetent and corrupt liberal mismanagement. That would probably hold ture for any educated person, unless they are part of the corruption.

    Yeah - that is why they move to other communities with Democratic leadership and representation also.

    But many are moving to 'right to work' states which are more free from the Union/Democratic mutual corruption association. I feel this mess will continue until there are greater State rights where they will be competing with each other to attract the best people. Right now, in many areas, there is little incentive to work hard, develop a trade, and improve your life and that of your family. The food stamp environment has made sure of that.

    What 'reality' would that be?

    Perhaps a few are. There are most always a few people who do most things - even if they are the exceptions to the rule.

    But look at this statistic about Michigan - and that is what we are talking about. In 1950, there were 4.5 million people living in southeastern Michigan with 1.8 million of them living in Detroit. Today there are 720,000 people living in Detroit.... while the same number as 60 years ago - 4.5 million live in southeastern Michigan.

    The migration has simply been from the city to the suburbs.

    Breaking News: Death By Falling is expected to hit all time lows in Detroit as the same judge has declared gravity to be unconstitutional.

    You don't know either, huh? Maybe you should ask a close family member.
