If US Gov more concern about their people in Detroit than to send US troops to all over the world , i believe Detroit can be fixed.
Imagine how much money they spend for Irak ,Afghan and all other place in this world.

I am sorry, I am not constructive at all as of now. So simply, burn it to the ground, it seems to be fun to fight the fire and burning it. It may regenerate or not, who cares anyway... I can't see it from Manhattan, it doesn't exists. More seriously what do you understand by "fix", free crack?

Detroit is failing because the industries there are failing. Historically, that has meant auto. How do you fix it? You need to bring jobs to the city. How do you bring jobs? You need to have a city safe for business and citizens. It's kind of a paradox that it takes resources to make a city safe, but the less safe a city is, the less resources it has as business and residents flee.

What will it take? Massive investment in the city. Whether you want that to be government or private is one question. I favor the private side. Property prices are so cheap because things are so bad, you're starting to see people willing to risk the investment to build a business or buy a house, because the upside outweighs the little loss, so the private side is starting to do its part a little. But beyond the market correcting itself, you need the city to get it together on its end too.

Cut taxes to zero. Require everyone to open carry when not on there own property. Shut down the police department. Let nature take its course from there.

But beyond the market correcting itself, you need the city to get it together on its end too.

Good points. But the city is barely getting trickling tax money from the population due to the massive poverty, rampart unemployment, high crime thing. Houses can be had for as little as $500 in a lot of parts in Detroit. The thing is these houses have been gutted by looters beyond repair--plumbing, electrical, everything utility related is basically destroyed by these guys desperate to make a buck for their next crack fix.

So even if you did invest $500 to buy a house there, you'd still need to spend thousands to demolish the house (because it's not within city code), flatten the land and then rebuild another house. Then once you build the nicest house in the neighborhood your property would still be worth very little because you are still in a bad neighborhood and you will be targeted for home invasions most likely. It's not cost effective for any investor to do that.

There was news about a businessman a while back who planned on buying like 10 or 12 city blocks of houses but when he couldn't get the government to pay for the demolition he backed out.

I don't know about that. I know the democrats and the unions had a free ride for their ultimate Utopia for the past 50 years. It was called Detroit. We can all see the result. It is basic History 101.

Ditto. Democrats promise everyone free money, free welfare, free hospital, free this and free that. People elect them out of personal greed. They wreck the country. The people are impoverished. Republicans are elected on the idea of people working for a living. Big business gets greedy and won't share the money with their workers. The people are impoverished. Democrats promise everyone free money...

Meanwhile, the wealthy few who understand the cycle quietly rake it in, keeping the people virtually as their slaves.

Rand Paul's economic freedom zone legislation will certainly get the ball rolling in the right direction while showcasing the free market at work and then putting a stake in the heart of liberal progressivism as the benefits of the former are unveiled. http://www.paul.senate.gov/files/documents/EconomicFreedomZones.pdf

Nobody equated the GOP with Utopia. 

Can you name one city controlled by Republicans for 50 years that is as big a shithole as Detroit? 

No, you can't.  So please take your asinine strawman and shove it.

People would much rather live in Orange County than Detroit.  And it's not just because of the weather, as demonstrated by deep red Idaho and Montana's relative prosperity and much higher quality of life.

You need to grow up and face the indisputable fact that the Democrat Oligarch's Free Shit Army has occupied Detroit and completely ruined it.
