West of the Atlantic. East of the ICW.
The city had been run almost entirely by democrats for 50 years. Even has a George Soros funded DA. The state has had democrat governors most of the time. Shouldn't it be utopia? Just from this morning's news.

It's obviously because of black people or Democrats.

There are no other possible reasons.

None.

we're doomed.

population replaced sports with politics a long time ago...and now we compete.

Competition is for losers.
Winners operate in the green field.

I'm hoping enlightened democrats like you can explain why a city run entirely by democrats for longer than you've been alive is such a violent place. Why are democrat politicians and policies failing so badly for the people of Philadelphia. How do you explain this?
You may be right that it has to do with Democrats being in charge and their policies being flawed, and I want to hear your argument.

So…..you made the claim, please explain the reasoning to us. Please cite some data that helps support your claim.
