When it comes to the warning signs of pursuing a socialist political agenda ... there is a glaring example which makes California's predicament look absolutely sunny.

I present to you what was once the city with the highest median income in America ... Detroit, Michigan:

- Unburied bodies piling up in the city mortuary, in June, the $21,000 annual county budget to bury Detroitís unclaimed bodies ran out.

- Detroit today has an unemployment rate of 28 per cent, higher even than the worst years of the Great Depression.

- The murder rate is soaring.

- The school system is in receivership.

- The city treasury is $300 million short of the funds needed to provide the most basic services such as rubbish collection.

- In its heyday it had 1.85 million people. Today, just over 900,000 remain. It was once Americaís fourth-largest city. Today, it ranks eleventh, and will continue to fall.

- Thousands of houses are abandoned, roofs ripped off, windows smashed.

- Block after block of shopping districts lie boarded up.

- Michiganís Central Station, designed by the same people who gave New York its Grand Central Station, was abandoned 20 years ago. One photographer who produced a series of images for Time magazine said that he often felt, as he moved around parts of Detroit, as though he was in a post-apocalyptic disaster.
