America’s top ten poorest cities

Author: Rory B. Bellows

What do they all have in common? All ten have either never elected a Republican or have not elected one in at least 20 years. Another big shocker, our very own Newark is on that list.

1) Detroit, MI (1st on the poverty rate list) hasn’t elected a Republican mayor since 1961;
2) Buffalo, NY (2nd) hasn’t elected one since 1954;
3) Cincinnati, OH (3rd)… …………………..since 1984;
4) Cleveland, OH (4th)… …………………..since 1989;
5) Miami, FL (5th) has never had a Republican Mayor;
6) St. Louis, MO (6th)…. ……………………since 1949;
7) El Paso, TX (7th) has never had a Republican Mayor;
8) Milwaukee, WI (8th)… ……………………since 1908;
9) Philadelphia, PA (9th)…………………….since 1952;
10) Newark, NJ (10th)… ……………………..since 1907.

More proof the Marxocrats and their policies are designed to make us all poor and miserable.

    This is a really great top ten list, it’s sad to see so man of these cities in the Midwest, and right now it doesn’t look like anything is getting better. Anyone can post their own to our site http://www.toptentopten.com/. The coolest feature is you can let other people vote on the rankings of your list.

    It’s not just republicans or democrats. All the politicians are corrupt.

    Detroit? Is that a big city? I need a little city.
    However, it is pretty good.

    yes all politicians are corrupt anonymous is right. world wide they all corrupt.

  6. 6 Mark Abell July 31, 2009 at 3:42 pm

    Why do cities succeed or fail?

    It is because of the attitudes of the PEOPLE that live there.

    PEOPLE build economies.

    Washington is “liberal” in some ways but it is a great place to start a business[1].

    Also, why did the aforementioned cities struggle? Because of free-trade policies championed by neo-liberal Republicans and Democrats. Free trade destroyed American manufacturing and thus those cities.

    However, I’ll admit the political leadership in those cities has been terrible in the last sixty years.

    Amazing to see so many Eastern Cities here.
    Miami was quite a surprise to me, and, especially… Detroit.

  8. 9 Pat September 4, 2009 at 2:28 pm

    You’ve got the causality backward. It’s not that Democratic leadership impoverishes a community. It’s that an impoverished community will not vote for Republicans who do not represent the interests of the poor.

  9. 11 Terry Higgins September 10, 2009 at 10:41 am

    Thank you but how can we get this published?

  10. 12 Rick September 10, 2009 at 10:34 pm

    Close.

    Democrats advertise and pander to the poor. The poor believe it and vote for them. They remain poor.

    Republicans do not pander to the poor in their campaigns. They try to promote business, jobs, competition for the best products and services (teacher’s unions do not like this part). Republicans do not get elected and the poor, … well continue to be poor.

    Get it?

    The first impression I get is that the majority of those cities have progessional sports teams. That seems messed up.

      What does that mean? Note to yourself! All of these top 10 poorest US cities have 3 things in common. Democratic Mayors and council members, corrupt and greedy unoins that ran well paying industrial powers out of town and high taxes. Sounds like the Obama economic plan. All of your poor democratic cities deserve what you have.

    You are a dumb ass all of these are big cities so they are not the ones struggling as bad as smaller ones like Rocky Mount,NC that have no Jobs what so ever. You need to check your connections because they are dead wrong.

      I think YOU need to go back to school and get a better education. Your spelling and grammar mistakes are horrendous and prove that you are one of the people I’m going to write about. You need to go back to school that way you can get a good job and EARN some money, instead of holding out your hand. You’re not going to get a good job when you can’t even spell!!!!! Why should I, a hard working American have to support someone else? I watch people pop babies out left and right to get more money from the government. I’ve seen people live in government funded housing driving Escalades. I’ve watch people like yourself who can’t even spell hold their hand out at the unemployment office (right next to a McDonalds that had a for hire sign in the window) so they can sit on the couch all day playing Xbox while I’m at work trying to earn a living. Obama is an enabler he has made it too easy for people to collect on other hard working American’s tax dollars. The majority of people who collect are lazy people who are more than capable of getting a job somewhere in this world. Ever see the movie Cinderella man? It took place during the Great Depression. Back then Americans had too much pride to bring themselves down to collect unemployment. They would starve so that their children could eat. Yes when all else fails by all means you should collect. When you see 28 year old single men collecting unemployment and sitting on the couch playing Xbox all day, well then there is something wrong with the system. Hopefully the next time you and all the other idiots on here make a post you will be intelligent enough to at least use spell check! Now excuse me I probably have to go teach your son or daughter how to be an American that has pride and not one that tells me “Mommy got a check from the government today we are going to go buy video games after school”, when the kid is failing every subject. Hopefully I can make a difference so that my students don’t grow up to write posts like this.

    Rich people own businesses. Businesses employ people. People need jobs. Republicans like people who own businesses. Democrats see business owners as rich people they can tax. When the Democrats tax the business owners they, not only, don’t expand their businesses, they very often close them. Those very same people who needed the jobs, but voted for the Democrats, (unintentionally) voted themselves out of a job.

    WAKE UP DEMOCRAT VOTERS. YOUR BEST CHANCE IN THIS SHORT LIFE IS WITH THE REPUBLICANS. WHILE THEY MAY HELP THE RICH GET RICHER (a very small percentage) THEY ALSO HELP THAT SAME GROUP CREATE JOBS. WHICH YOU NEED.

    The Democrats will promise to take care of all your needs (just above poverty level) and all you have to do in return is to let them orchestrate your life.

    As soon as I was completely potty trained I realized that I could handle my own business and learn to take care of myself.

    My recommendation is that you rip off those Democrat Diapers and learn how to take care of YOURSELF.

    • 26 Jesse Gossmann February 4, 2010 at 12:36 am

      You need to get real. This massive recession that our nation is in started on the republicans watch. You are the one that needs to wake up and get an education. Live at let live! I and most likely no other democrat here are trying to convert you. Face it your party lost the elections and are a minorety because your party screwed up big time. Your party has let the middle class sink to the point they are poor. Your party left turned the countys surplus into a deficit and here you come preaching out of desperation to try and convert people to your party. It’s funny that the republicans seem to think everyone forgot that last eight years and would like to hope everyone is as dumb as Sarah Palin and Joe the plumber. Maybe you are the same! LOL

      • 27 Anonymous March 26, 2010 at 9:35 am

        yes it was on the republicans watch but entirely caused by the democraps…get a clue.

      • 28 joanne July 28, 2010 at 9:44 am

        “This massive recession that our nation is in started on the republicans watch.” uh no. The economy was fine until the Democrats took control of Congress years before Bush left office.

        “Live at let live!” Indeed! So why is it the deomcrats keep passing bills to limit my freedoms?

        “dumb as Sarah Palin and Joe the plumber” – these people are not dumb. They are very intelligent Americans.

        I consider myself a Conservative, but not a republican. That being said, my political perspective leans heavily on the state of the economy.

        It’s simple economics 101. A poor man never signed your paycheck. The majority of businesses and jobs are small businesses. Every single time the government passes something as bloated as Obamacare with fines and penatlites, those small businesses get hurt. If they get hit with heavy fines and taxes, they need to compensate for it by raising the costs of their products and laying off employees. What does that do? It means people can’t afford to buy as much as they used to a) because the product costs more, and/or b) because they don’t have a job to buy consumer products with.

        So, let’s recap – Businesses employ people. If the businesses can’t run due to havy taxation and regulation, they increase costs of products, increase layoffs, which all hurts the economy. That decreases the overall amount of available jobs – more people on welfare, unemployment. Who pays unemployment? oh yeah – it’s the former employer and the tax payer. So the businesses get doubly screwed since their wealth is decreased in sales, decreased by busniness taxes/unemployment payments.

        We can go at this all day – it’s cyclical. You cannot keep raising taxes on “the wealthy” and expect to increase jobs, increase consumer spending, new houseing startups, etc – it just won’t work.

        Democrate = taxes, reguations, more opressive gov’t control and gov’t beuraucracies.

        THAT is my problem with this whole administration.
        Obama has spent more money in during his presidency to date than Bush spent in 8 years. In fact he reached that milestone a few months ago.

        Republicans aren’t the problem, it’s the overspending of COngress.

        WOW!!! Great reply Joanne. Unfortunately there are a lot of people in this country who think you should work harder so those on welfare will be more comfortable. It is clear the Obama adminstration is taking Bush’s “No Child Left Behind” and turning it into “No Child Left A Dime”. Obama seems to think that everyone ele deserves what I’ve worked so hard for. Well I’ve got news for him – the American dream is NOT a HANDOUT!! If you want socialism move to one of those failed countries that have tried it and see how you like it. Pretty soon we’ll all be shopping at the OBAMA-MART where everything is free because the guy behind you pays!! If Obama would only spend as much time fixing our economy as he does blaming Bush we might actually lower the unemployment rate a point or two. Oh… by the way… isn’t it wonderful that Osama and Obama both have friends that bombed the pentagon (Bill Ayers)…? Hopefully we’ve all learned something from our mistake!

      • 32 Anonymous September 16, 2011 at 11:56 am

        Jesee, you are triing to fool yourself about who is at fault.You and your Liberal friends have to stop blaming Bush for Obamas incompotant economic policies. Independant and many Democrats arent blaming Bush anymore but are starting to realize that its Obama and Liberal Democrats who are at fault. Since Obama was elected to office the Republicans have been winning a vast majority of all elections. In fact more than half of Dem. on Cap.Hill dont even vote or agree with Obama. His crazy economic policies are the best thing that happend to the Republican Party as reflected in his approval ratings of 42% and falling. LOOK IN THE MIRROR BEFORE YOU CALL SOMEONE DUMB

    • 33 Grumpus February 18, 2012 at 5:34 pm

      Really??? Do just a little research and see what the tax rate was on the richest in 1920-1930 right before the “Great Depression” then compare the tax rate of the richest prior to the “Great Recession”. Then look at when the country had the greatest prosperity, hint: right between the two financial breakdowns, and see what the tax rate was for the very richest. I do believe you will see that your point of view is way off base. You’ll find as most economists have found that it is demand that drives business. If you diminish the buying power of the middle and lower classes you diminish economic growth.

  18. 34 SABECA December 22, 2009 at 12:23 pm

    We all need to work together to solve the sad state of affairs we the people of the United States are in right now. WE need to get the people out of office who have forgotten who they are working for, and what they are their for. I myself don’t have a wall covered in sheep skins from universities, but I do have an over abundance of COMMON SENSE and it tells me we are a ship thats about to wreck if something isn’t done about the course we are on RIGHT NOW. Pay attention to what is going on around you, and what is being said! I don’t care if you are Republican or Democrat affiliation, GET YOUR HEAD OUT OF YOU A–, get involved, and address the problems at hand, ask questions, do some research, and when it is time to vote make your voice heard.
    I consider myself very patriotic, I fought in the Vietnam war, my Father fought in the WW 2, Grandfather fought in WW 1, and a Great Grandfather that fought in the American Revolution. I think this gives me the right to ask you as a fellow Americans to get off your butt and address the issues at hand, and stop worrying about your party affiliation!! When something is broke it needs fixed!!! It is time to fix things!!!! RLR.

    This country was founded on the freedom to make the best of one’s own life. Socialism has done nothing but destroy lives under the promise of utopia. It has happened again, and again, and again under different flags. Detroit is a perfect example of what happens when you throttle business with unions and keep voting for people who claim to be looking out for you. Wake up people. No one looks out for you but YOU. Democrats seize on the poor and uneducated into thinking that they will provide for them. How has it worked Blue America? Hows that going? The entire country will be a gray, decrepit, crime ridden shell like Detroit if we keep selling the idea that businesses are the enemy. Republicans, however imperfect, believe in what really works. The Democrats simply sell you a bill of goods that they can not deliver. They are snake oil salesman of the worst kind.

    • 36 Jesse Gossmann February 4, 2010 at 1:15 am

      WOW another brain washed freak. Tell me something StopTheDonkey….name one great and memorable thing a republican presdient has done for this county in the last 30 years. I will name 1 for you and leave you the rest. Ronald Reagan ended the cold war. Reagan has been the only decent and respectable president the republicans have had in half a century. So answer the question other than what I just mentioned please. Socialism has never existed in the USA and if you think it has maybe you should go live in North Korea, Libia or maybe Iran so you can learn what socialism really is. After all you don’t like the USA because it is socailist. You hope the USA fails because you don’t like the democracts. There’s something else I would like you to tell me. If the republican party is so confident in their ways then why is the GOP trying to all of a sudden transform themselves into the Tea Party which is Libritarian. I can certainely tell you this…they may not be happy with the democrats but they certainly do not consider themselves part of the GOP. Also why is it that the GOP is being paid by the US tax payer to sit on their ass and do nothing except say NO NO NO NO NO NO NO and I could go on and on. After all it takes a real educated person to say NO right? Another question….why is it that you think lowering taxes for big companies with big profits is so bad. Do you think for example that cutting taxes for a place like lets say Walmart is going to render more middle class citizens or what? How stupid could you be. Certainely giving banks bailout money did not make the bank hire more people. It just made the CEO’s bonus bigger. While Exxon gained record propfits there was not all of a sudden more jobs to be had. Eight whole years of this ideology was used and it put the counrty in the poor house. Not only that, it srewed the american citizen in all classes. Last question. If the republicans have all the answers then why are you talking about the democrats instead of offering solutions. If you think the GOP is offering solutions…what are they? I am sure many people here would like to hear your repsonce to these questions. Thank you.

      • 37 joanne July 28, 2010 at 10:09 am

        The GOP isn’t trying to morph into the Tea Party.

        I AM in the Tea Party and active. And it’s not Libertarian. It’s independent, republican, democrat, all races, all faiths – it IS a melting pot. What do we have in common? We are tired of the government’s politics as usual. We are tired of the overspending. We are tired of the redistribution of wealth – which IS SOCIALISM and it is beginning here. The GOP is saying NO NO NO becuase these ideas proposed by the Obama administration and the progressives in Congress are destroying our way of life very quickly.

        Bush kept this country safe and free from another terrorist attack sincs 9/11. Reagan did a HELL of a lot more than contribute to an end of the Cold War. And I am not even sure that was such a good idea. The Cold War kept us on our toes, kept us free. During the Cold War we spoke softly but carried a large stick. Now we yell and holler and carry a twig. Our borders are bleeding, soldiers are being slaughtered due to ridiculous catch and release programs – *frustration*.

        If you think the GOP is offering solutions…what are they? The GOP had offered a multitude of ideas about healthcare – they were flatly ignored every single one. They offered a TON of ideas in order to pass a bipartisan cap and trade – the dems turned down EVERY ONE OF THEM – the media just isn’t telling you about them – you have to start reading the actual sites for what’s going on in Congress and start watching CSpan and you’ll see what I am talking about. Eric Cantor recently set up a website where people can go to offer ideas, and vote on the MULTITUDE OF GOP IDEAS the GOP has on many bills – http://republicanwhip.house.gov/YouCut/

        Dude, wtf are you talking about here – While Exxon gained record propfits there was not all of a sudden more jobs to be had. ????

        Windfall profits I suspect – if you condider making 2 CENTS on the dollar a WINDFALL PROFIT I guess you’d be right – do the reaseach – that IS the case. And I’d like to know where you’re info came from that says Exxon didn’t hire anyone in your non-specified period of time???

        NO ONE IS HIRING becuase the GOVERNMENT is taxing and penalizing and spending so much, we just cannot sustain it. THAT is what’s going on here.

      • 38 Anonymous September 16, 2011 at 2:17 pm

        jesse, Why does the word PROFIT grind on your brain so much. Maybe Obama should close some loopholes for his cronnies at GE and have them pay some taxes instead of donating to Obama and other Liberal causes. But in you eyes all that matters is if a candidate has a D after their name, not the issues. That is so sad!

    IF THE AMERICAN TAX PAYER HAS TO LIVE WITHIN A BUDGET.
    WHY CAN’T WE AS AMERICANS EXPECT THE GOVERNMENT TO DO THE SAME.

    HE SAYS AND SAY WHAT HE WILL DO. I DONT CARE WHAT PARTY HE
    BELONGS TO – WE WANT AND NEED HONEST PEOPLE TO REPRESENT US AND
    WHAT THIS COUNTRY NEEDS. WE HAVE POLITICIANS WHO ARE OBLIGATED
    TO THOSE THAT HAVE GIVEN THEM THE MOST MONEY. HOW ABOUT SOMEONE
    WHO WILL ONLY ACCEPT DONATIONS OF JUST $1,000 AND NO MORE FROM

    “Mayors” have little to do with “local economics”. Poverty issues are created, or eliminated, by “national policies”.

    Mayors oversee utilities, trash pick-up, water supply, city ordinances, staffing of police depts, fire departments …. etc. Whether it’s your local mayor or Rudy Guliano (former mayor of NYC) …. they have little influence on overall economic conditions …. only the orderly operations of city munipal functions.

    At an initial glance … these are all heavy “manufacturing” cities … and it was national “Republican” policies that gave tax credits to wealthy corporations to ship jobs overseas.

    Thus this interesting bit of information (about “democratic mayors”) is useless, and irrelevant.

    People … please start reasoning, instead of participating in these stupid food fights!

    No wonder our country is in trouble, when the electorate has lost their ability for critical thinking … and jumps on the band wagons of irrational, ignorant, finger pointing and ridiculous conclusions.

    6. Anaheim, CA (Republican)

    7. Raleigh, N.C. (Democrat)

    8. Seattle, WA (Democrat)

    9. Washigton, D.C. (Democrat)

    10. Honolulu, Hawaii (Democrat)

    Apparently a lot of Republicans want to reinstate the Dubya era tax cuts and low regulation which led to a record breaking government deficit, and an horrific economic downturn, with millions of people losing jobs, losing houses, losing whole businesses, not to mention the economic reverberations felt around the world…. Does this qualify as “doing the same thing over and over and expecting different results”?

  25. 46 J.G.R.C. March 26, 2011 at 12:37 pm

    I find it quite ironic the way most of the replies are written.

    If you are a Republican, you tend to try to find a reason for the problem and then try to solve it.

    If you are a Democrat, your usual response is to be nasty and degrade what the republicans have said and offer no solution to the problems.

    Why are the Democrats so negative and defensive?

    I think both sides should work together to solve problems.

    In my 70 years I have never seen the parties so opposed to each other as they are now. Who cares right from wrong, just vote the party seems to be the new way.

    The Tea Party has started a movement to get back to the constitution and it constituiants are Dems, Repubs, Independents and other who believe in the constitution. Tell me why the news media is tying it only to the republicans? It is not a republican entity.

    Thanks for reading my post and comments

  26. 47 Dave Demro April 9, 2011 at 10:29 pm

    My wife is going to school for her phD and was researching on the internet when she came across an article. I told her how Washington DC (where I grew up) has had a Democrat mayor all of my life. She could not believe it though when I told her how our former mayor, Marion Barry (a black Democrat), was video taped by the FBI smoking crack cocaine, then went to prison, then was re-elected as mayor after getting out of prison. I think this pretty well sums up the mentality of the black community who, by the way, comprise the greater percentage of the population in the nation’s poorest cities. The reason the nation’s poorest cities are just that, is because their populations are comprised of people who do not want to work (therefore they contribute nothing to their city)and just make babies so they qualify for welfare and free housing, food, etc., which only drains the city financially as they get arrested and go to jail and prison. Everything they do only serves to take away from their society. So when the majority of a city’s population is taking, and never contributing, SURPRISE… your city goes broke!!! My sister worked for the department of social services in DC and I guarantee you this – all you need to do is work there to learn in a quick hurry how cities go broke. Anyone who wants to study the facts (numbers) will understand this, anyone who just wants to not use their brain for anything will just do what all Democrats do – use recist attacks and slander because they think this makes them sound intelligent.

    • 48 Anonymous September 16, 2011 at 2:56 pm

      BRAVO Dave, Couldnt say it better myself. Remember one thing, most Democrats vote for a candidate not because of issues but if a “D” is after their name. Who in their right mind would vote for former DC mayor and crack-head Marion Barry to a second term other than a Democrat.

  27. 49 Ernest Bennett October 23, 2011 at 11:33 pm

    Most large cities tend to have a high minorities population. Big cities also attract people from other countries (legal and illegal). Democrats tend to offer more in the way of welfare and other social services. People looking for a way to live (even at a lower standard), and hoping for a miracle will vote Democrat. People looking to make a living with a chance to have a better way of life (with hard work) tend to vote Republican. That’s just the way it is!

  28. 50 John Bryant February 11, 2012 at 6:15 pm

    The quote attributed to Lincoln in the “10 poorest cities” that started this string is a fake.

    William John Henry Boetcker (1873–1962) was an American religious leader and influential public speaker. An outspoken political conservative, Rev. Boetcker is perhaps best remembered for his authorship of a pamphlet entitled The Ten Cannots that emphasizes freedom and responsibility of the individual on himself. Originally published in 1916, it is often misattributed to Abraham Lincoln. The error apparently stems from a leaflet printed in 1942 by a conservative political organization called the Committee for Constitutional Government.

    The statistics used in the “10 poorest cities” that started this string are false.

    The 10 poorest cities in America are listed below.

    10. Laredo, TX
    9. Steubenville, Ohio-Weirton, W.Va.
    8. Jonesboro, Ark.
    7. Las Cruces, N.M.
    6. Cumberland, Md.
    5. Kingsport-Bristol, Tenn.-Bristol, Va.
    4. Albany, Ga.
    3. McAllen-Edinburg-Mission, Texas
    2. Pine Bluff, Ark.
    1. Brownsville-Harlingen, TX

    see also Forbes,

    Note that 3 of these cities are located in Texas where approximately 30% of the people are on food stamps. The Governor of Texas in his abortive run for the Republican Presidential nomination had the gall to portray himself as a “job creator”.

    How long can the ignorant continue to spread these lies?

    Enough said.
