Ann Arbor, MI. has long been the Citadel of Mid-Western Liberalism being a college town and all.<quoted text>Exactly, Detroit & the Detroit area is where the New Left got is start too with this New Modern Liberalism and the UAW was a supporter of the SDS and the direction this New Modern Liberalism was taking and is the reason why the Detriot area(Southeast Michigan) is in the shape it is in economically.
Port Huron Statement
Over the last decade, I don't think there has been a month's passing that doesn't include news reports of rapes, robberies, break-ins and murders in Ann Arbor.
There is definitely a connection between Liberal policies and sinking quality of life.
