It is amazing what the socialist democratic local government has done to portland in only 2 years. The decline is extraordinary unlike anything I’ve ever seen. Its almost as if the mayor wheeler and the city council of very freaky and high school educated radical woman and poc actually wanted to destroy what was only a couple years ago the place to move to. Tent cities everywhere. drugs. crime. murder. skyrocketing property tax. Its unbelievable.

Stay away from Portland at all costs. The city is rapidly deteriorating and is well on its way to becoming Detroit 2.0. One of the first few times I’ve ever gone downtown I’ve immediately seen people shooting heroin (or something else). Rent prices are through the roof and so are home prices. The city has become the focal point for violent protests of all kinds and there are many homeless people who the government refuses to help. Along with the complete legalization of all drugs that Oregon passed last year, I think it’s safe to say Portland and Oregon as an extension has become something to avoid like the plague. If you live here you know full and well that it’s rare to have a week (or day) without the local news reporting a homicide.
