    I love the concept of restoring Detroit, but what EXACTLY makes this effort different from all the other attempts over the past fifty (or more) years?? It’s becoming as boring as hearing “Restore the Roar” from the Lions for so many years! As soon as it seems something good is happening, bam – we elect another Kilpatrick, or a Conyers, or some other Democrat that just wants to rip the city. Although it is good to think positive, we also have to live in the REAL world. It will take a PROLONGED positive change and the only prolonged thing in Detroit has been crime. Sorry, but the experience of living around Detroit for sixty five years, having to driving through the riots to my job, seeing Kilpatric and others like him getting a second term to do further ripping of the city, and seeing all the blight. Detroiters need a change of morals and attitude before anything will get better. It’s about voting for the right people, we can’t vote for those supporting immorality like abortion, sodomy, casinos, fornication, legalizing drugs, strip clubs, and all the rest. These same people are in church on Sunday singing and crying Jesus and then go to the voting booth and put immoral idiots like Obama into office. If you want help from God then Detroit needs to ACT, and VOTE according to God’s commandments, sin IS crime to God. I wish the pastors and the “promise keepers” a lot of good wishes and prayers with this project, I just can’t see them changing the liberal, sinful mindset now ingrained into them, even many “religious” pastors support this immoral mindset and try to justify it by saying these evil politicians “help the poor”. No one is more “poor” than those with a “poor” soul. Build up riches for Heaven not for earth. Any society that lived by God’s laws always flourished, and every society that went against God failed. And we have failed because we sacrifice morality for aid. The Democratic party is the new “god” for those who want aid. Stop sin and you stop crime, live God’s way and you will flourish.
