Not necessarily. Regardless of what you think of Donald Trump, he has opened up the Republican Party to a wide variety of people who wouldn't have voted Republican if someone like Mitt Romney or Jeb! was at the top of the ticket. Record turnout for Republicans from minority groups and all. The issue I see isn't there's only two parties nationwide, it's that in deep red or blue areas, there's only one party. If there was actual competition from the Republicans, Los Angeles and San Francisco would get cleaned up and perhaps something might actually get done about all the murders and crime in places like Chicago and Baltimore.

I did not vote for him the first time because I did not believe he would run to the right. I guess there were millions of us who now voted for him this time. This is why they had to cheat more and put in 100,000 votes because of our side setting records. I personally know 6 people who voted for him for the first time this year. If you saw the press conference yesterday, you will see he probably won. It is mind blowing what the democrats did to "win" the election. Also what those voting machines can do and how easy it is to switch votes. Heck they already turned over several local elections because those machines flipped voted. It is a sickness that the left has to cheat to win because their ideas are that bad.

Voted or run. That's what I liked about him, he wasn't the average Republican. He broke the mold, and there are gonna be more Republicans like him in the future.

Exactly. You had Kim Klacik running in Baltimore, which even though she didn’t win, was only the first wave of what’s to come. Lara Trump is considering a run in 2022 for a Senate seat in North Carolina. I can only imagine the challengers that will pop up the next few years especially if Mr. Badakathcare is inaugurated.

St. Louis, Detroit, Flint, Milwaukee, Houston, Albuquerque, Phoenix, Tucson, San Bernardino, Los Angeles, San Francisco, Oakland, Anchorage, Washington DC, Atlanta, Indianapolis, Wichita, Baton Rouge, New Orleans, Kansas City, Newark, Buffalo, Cincinnati, Cleveland, Philadelphia, Memphis, and Nashville are all more dangerous than Fresno or Jacksonville and all have Democrat mayors and most have Democrat City Councils as well.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_United_States_cities_by_crime_rate

Out of the top 50 most dangerous cities in America, only Corpus Christi, Tulsa, Lubbock, and Stockton CA are run by Republicans for a total of 4 cities. Syracuse NY has an independent mayor, but the City Council is all Democrat, so they go in the Democrat column. I wasn't able to verify which party controls Pompano Beach FL, Modesto CA, Vallejo CA, North Charleston SC, or Odessa TX for a total of 5 cities. That leaves 41 Democrat-run confirmed cities or 82% of the list.

https://www.cbsnews.com/pictures/the-most-dangerous-cities-in-america/
And browsing Wikipedia

82% of the 50 most dangerous cities are run by Democrats. 82%

Let that sink in...

"Most big cities in the United States are run by Democrats. Big cities also have a lot of crime. Any big city run by Republicans will also have a lot of crime, I guarantee it."

Fair argument. Some cities like Detroit and Flint are so screwed up that nothing is going to fix them short of state or federal intervention. However, I will say Rudy Giuliani did a pretty good job with New York City before and during his mayoral reign.

"And you'll notice that a lot of those cities in the top 50 list may be run by Democrats, but they're in states run by conservatives. So if you can accuse Democrats of not doing anything to quell the crime rate, I can say the same thing about the Republicans at the state level."

That makes about as much sense as blaming Trump for the lockdowns pushed by the state governors like Whitmer, Cuomo, and Newsom. If I have an issue with how my city is being run, I bring it to my alderman or the mayor, not my state legislator or the governor. Every issue has to be addressed at the proper level of government and trying to pin an issue affecting only your city on the state is ridiculous.

Oh I agree Giuliani did some controversial things to get there, like Stop and Frisk, which I think does violate the Fourth Amendment. So as far as I'm concerned, any criticism of Giuliani on that front is utterly warrented. However, it was Michael Bloomberg who cranked it up to 11 targeting minority communities, which is where the major trouble with Stop and Frisk was happening.

Sure, you could ask the governor to intervene. However, that doesn't fix the long term issue of incompetent/feckless/corrupt local government officials, hence why dealing with things on the local level is the better option. And that's assuming your governor does, or even can intervene. If your politicians aren't fighting for you, then vote them out.

I don't think there's any denying NYC was one of the safest big cities around. Whether you want to attribute that to crime rates falling in general, Rudy Giuliani going after the mob, Stop and Frisk, or even Donald Trump building more real estate to lure in the rich, New York is definitely an anomaly to the trope of the crime ridden big city. Chicago is an altogether different beast. Walk into the wrong neighborhood and you may just be risking your life. Chicago PD even had a black site, Homan Square, where you would just "disappear", no lawyer no anything. Plus with the rise of the work from home jobs over the past year, there's very little reason to live in the big city and put up with high taxes, high crime, high rents, and the lockdowns being put in place when they can move to the countryside or a small town and keep all that money for themselves. Between a "low growth" Republican city and Chicago, I'm picking the Republican city every time.

As for the Top 50 most dangerous cities, simply put: it's obvious things aren't working out too well for them. The vast majority of them are run by Democrats and in plenty of cases have been run by Democrats for generations. And yeah, there are Republican cities that have made that list. Regardless of party, they should all be voted out so we the people have a shot at getting leaders who actually have our best interests at heart. There needs to be some actual competition in politics if we want to change things because where there's a monopoly, we all lose.

Big cities would have been big cities regardless of whoever was in charge. NYC? It's a port on the Atlantic and has historically been the quickest way to access the Great Lakes from the ocean via the Erie Canal. Chicago? It's the quickest route to portage between the Great Lakes and the Mississippi River watershed. New Orleans? At the mouth of the Mississippi River. St. Louis? It's where the Missouri flows into the Mississippi. Detroit? Right in between two Great Lakes. Los Angeles, San Francisco, Seattle, Vancouver? All major ports on the Pacific Ocean. All of these cities grew due to their geographical location, not because one party or the other was running things. You can see this trend worldwide. London is near where the Thames flows into the sea, Paris is at the confluence of the Seine and Marne Rivers, Copenhagen is situated on a major chokepoint, the Danish Straits, Buenos Aires is where the Parana and Uruguay Rivers flow into the Rio De La Plata, etc..

NYC was THE safest big city in America, not sure the rank now, though crime has gone up throughout the US 2020

That has nothing to do with the Mafia, which has been largely neutered by the FBI as well as NYPD. Meanwhile everything from Albanian Mafia to Chinese Triads to the Russian mob, etc, have been rising to fill that niche.

Giuliani's Prosecutor days ran from 1983 - 89, he was Mayor from 1994 -2001, just in time to take credit for a decline in crime that begin in 1991, during his predecessor David Dinkin's [R.I.P.] term and continued for the TWO decades since Rudy's been out of office.
Don't get me wrong, getting them pesky squiggee cleaners off the Bowery sure made a dent by allowing windshields en route to Chinatown to be less polished by dirt, but otherwise, alls he did was what he has always done - lie like he does now

As you can see by both graphs, the trend also occurred throughout the USA, no Giuliani at the helm.

Stop and Frisk violated people's rights and unfairly targeted a larger number of minorities who incidentally had a lesser number of guns found on them than on the less often searched whites. If anything, it inflamed tensions, and we saw some of the result of that this year.

Not sure what impact Trump Tower made, but no. His West Side Rail Yards project is sure to be finally built by the next century or two.

Bloomberg was the one behind pushing for develops in Brooklyn and whatnot, gentrifyling neighborhoods at the expense of locals who kept the faith during the bad old days.
But alas, an influx of Trust Fund hipsters take no credit for declining rates in crime.

No one's questioning how cities rise, these existed long before Homo Sapiens Democratii and Homo Sapiens Repulblicanensis - two subspecies discovered by renowned Anthropologist, Donald J Trump - walked the Earth.
Recent scientific studies indicate that when Pataki was Governor in 1995 - 2006, which overlaps with Giuliani's rule, there was NOT a switch of the entire population from the Homo Sapiens D to Homo S R, nor back after those two left office.

AKA This trite silly speciating Red vs Blue State claptrap is a fiction. People claim Trump is not a racist yet has turned political affiliation into something that confers actual genetic traits governing culture, mores, and deviancy.

It's basic math, cities have more people, more money, more rich, more poor, more inequity, more disease, more crime, more everything except National Forests within their territory.

With those numbers rising in proportion to population, cities have bigger crime figures. But when ranked according to per 100,000, a different number arises, that goes for Chicago, which ranks far lower than many might think, including East St Louis in Illionois, which has something like FOUR times the violent crime.

This is not a result of what stupid letter in parenthesis a Mayor has next to his name, but is a result of poverty and lack of oppurtunity. Chicago's crime rate was down by 33%.

Damn tablet blacked out and lost the damn shit I typed yet again.

Here's an interesting [albeit rather one-sided] discussion had on a meme a couple of years ago. While I get the sneaking suspicion my math is no better than Modda's, the numbers do seem to add up and tell an interesting story about life in a safe and comfy small town which, sadly, has yet to meet the decline, at least in NYC levels:

[{sorry, had to post that unfinished lest my tablet black out and lose it again}]

Why the decline in crime in New York City?

🔘 Strict gun restirction laws going back a century.

🔘 Assigning individual social workers to individual street gangs starting in the 1960s to help steer the culture into a less violent direction (hence the reference in the Orphan's scene in The Warriors)

🔘 A slowing then reduction of the urban decay that plagued post-WWII New York.

🔘 Community policing - providing incentives for police to live in the areas they work, getting them to walk the beat and interact with locals in a freindly manner instead of just having them patrol in cars looking to make arrests.

🔘 No-questions-asked gun buy backs.
They started having them here again the other week.

It has nothing to do with party affiliation, as switches throughout the three decades at the city and state level has witnessed.

And bottom line is, if that really WAS the cause, why hasn't anyone taken note and voted accordingly, or at least borrow this secret recipe which is what, btw?

Progress is a luxury of the more affluent. Those in areas where dead end ecomomies are the norm retreat to fantasies of an idealized past - and thus they become Conservatives.
Of course Republicans aren't the cause of said poverty, they're just the ones who tell the folks the lie they need to hear, and one day, on a day a century and a half has yet to bring, maybe those dreams will come true. Just not right now nor anytime sooner than never.

In the meantime, those thinking more of the future because they can afford to, have no need for such fictions, and so vote for whom they want to, and Democrats, being more difuse and less myopic in vision, stances, and policies, tend to thus have more appeal.
