I posted my Capitalism vs. Communism : See The Difference post on Breitbart.com and a number of people mentioned now the photos of Germany in the 1980s and early 1990s reminded them of Detroit. Detroit has consistently supported the Democratic Party in local and national elections since about 1922. Just go to Flickr and search for “Detroit Decay” for plenty of examples of this.
So — here’s a depressing game. Half of these pictures are Detroit. Half are communist East Germany. You decide which is which.
