Detroit…America’s Greece or Ancient Rome?

January 24, 2012 at 11:03 pm 0 comments

Does Detroit’s fate foretell the end of American democracy?

Run up spending and debt, raise taxes in the naming of balancing the budget, but then watch as deficits rise and your credit-rating falls anyway. That’s been the sad pattern in Europe, and now it’s hitting that mecca of tax-and-spend government known as Illinois. Though too few noticed, this month [...]
