This story probably won't surprise any one but it's still funny to see it in print. 2 of the worst s--tholes in the US are being labeled as the most liberal. Don't that beat all?

Detroit found to be most liberal U.S. city

Aug. 11, 2005 at 7:39AM

Detroit is the most liberal U.S. city while Provo, Utah, is the most conservative, a study of voting patterns indicates.

The list was compiled by the Bay Area Center for Voting Research in California through an examination of voting in 237 U.S. cities with populations of more than 100,000.

"Detroit and Provo epitomize America's political, economic and racial polarization," BACVR Director Jason Alderman said in a release Thursday. "As the most conservative city in America, Provo is overwhelmingly white and solidly middle class. This is in stark contrast to Detroit, which is impoverished, black and the most liberal."

Gary, Ind., was found to be the second-most liberal followed by Berkeley, Calif.; Washington; and Oakland, Calif. The group that did the ranking is based in Berkeley, not far from Oakland.

Texas, home to President George Bush, has three of the five most conservative cities, as determined by BACVR, including Lubbock and Abilene in the Nos. 2 and 3 spots and Plano in the fifth spot. Hialeah, Fla., was ranked fourth.

BACVR offered no detailed breakdown of its methodology.

Not too surprising. A lot of poor people vote for whoever promises the most handouts, which is almost always a Democrat.

Just for the record, Indiana is a RED state.

I don't know about all those Gary Chicago-wanna-bee gang-banger pot-crack-heroin-smokin F&*^ing pukes... (Oh, sorry, I meant to say liberal) But the rest of the state is nice.

What they fail to state is that Provo Utah is a college town. A mormon college town. Mormons vote overwhelmingly republican. Also, most of the students in Provo come from families with ties back to mormon pioneers. Mormon pioneers were predominately white europeans. The only color you'll see in provo, besides the international students, are Hispanic and Polynesian. My family consists of both. In my ward at Church, there are only three or four other couples who aren't caucasian by definition. Most of the students here come from middle class families. That's because unless you are on a scholarship you'd generally need the financial support of a middle class family to go to college.

Correlation does not equal causality. Being middle class and white does not make provo Conservative so much as the fact that it's filled with Mormon College students who traditionally are very conservative.

The real problem here is it seems that the ghetto culture, the culture of ignorance, victimhood, and entitlement, that is perpetuated in certain black communities like Detroit is actually the result of liberalism. It isn't the color of ones skin, their financial standing, or the ghetto they live in that makes them liberal, I think it's the other way around. The liberal mentality of a complete absence of personal responsibility and moral restraint creates the drug addicted, poverty stricken, filthy ghettos which are overrun with gangs made of kids from fatherless homes and teenage mothers. In addition, the liberal desire to abdicate personal responsibility from others by throwing excuses and other people's money at problems further prevents people in these conditions from getting out by keeping them dependent and expecting handouts.

Provo is also lousy with old people. Most old people(in Utah anyway) are conservative.
I would not be suprised if Provo led the country in marrige rates, birth rates and death rates.

Detroit is more liberal than Boston? Than Newark? Than SAN FRANCISCO (or Berkeley)??? Geez.

D-town is messed up but I didn't think it was that messed up... I'm close to calling BS on it in fact.

Reverend Al Sharpton: 2004 Democratic National Convention Address

Mr. President, as I close, Mr. President, I heard you say Friday that you had questions for voters, particularly African-American voters. And you aksed [asked] the question: Did the Democratic Party take us for granted? Well, I have raised questions. But let me answer your question.

You said the Republican Party was the party of Lincoln and Frederick Douglass. It is true that Mr. Lincoln signed the Emancipation Proclamation, after which there was a commitment to give 40 acres and a mule.

That's where the argument, to this day, of reparations starts. We never got the 40 acres. We went all the way to Herbert Hoover, and we never got the 40 acres.

We didn't get the mule. So we decided we'd ride this donkey as far as it would take us.

What about the upper-class white neighborhoods? They're libreal. We have an ultra-liberal city nearby that is filled with wealthy white people that only drive foreign cars. Seriously, drive down the city streets and all you see are volvos, bmw's, mercedes, etc and the domestic cars are so few and far between. And then you pass signs that say "Bush is a criminal".

Detoilet is actually the phonetic translation of Detroit in Mandarin Chinese.

Whilst Detroit is the most liberal city in that most (almost all) of the inhabitants are liberal, the most dangerous liberal policies and the most "militant" liberals are from LA.

No, the Californian city. LA and San Fran are where most of the "militant" libs come from.

Back in the 1860's/1870's we were givinga way Western land like crazy. Nothing stopped the freed slaves...the actual living victims of that practice, not some distant relative 4 generations removed...from benefiting by getting a land claim and homesteading like the rest of the folks that were doing that sort of thing at the time.Come to think of it, I hear theres still free land up in Alaska even today, but you have to settle there. So Al and his buddies shouldn't have a problem with hopping on a plane and claiming their 40 acres.

Provo is also on the FBI's statistics as one of the (or, possible, the number one) safest cities of its size in the country. Too lazy to look up the stats, but if Provo and Detroit are the standard bearers, it's not real hard to tell which side are the good guys.

Also, while I lived there I recall a newspaper article that said that Provo was, population-wise, the youngest city in the country. I believe its average age is under 19. Besides the college kids there were just a ridiculous number of babies driving down the average. Apparently Mormons tend to vote conservative, commit no crimes, and reproduce a LOT.
