I would actually argue that this is an antiquated way of looking at things. I would be more interested to know which cities leaned more toward statism and which generally leaned away.
The one and only time I met Ron Paul was in his office in DC in 2007. I had long admired him and I had come to pitch Dr. Paul on becoming a client of mine. I was a fledgling stock broker and I thought I might be able to interest him in some gold stocks.
What’s funny is that as soon as I walked through the door of his office and he and I sat down I forgot all about doing business and we just talked politics and strategy for about 20-25 minutes.

Harry Reid, always good for a Senate floor soundbite. In this one he explains that politics is a game controlled by billionaires but that the Dems don’t have any billionaire sponsors.
As your mom (hopefully) said, “Cheaters never win.”
They do however get rich sometimes. And for some that’s all that counts.
As we’ve said before, the last thing this country needs is another Clinton or Bush in the White House.
Urban politics is a nasty game. The taxi business can be a nasty business. Where the 2 come together there seems to be a synergistic effect. The below article is a case in point.
