over the years, i've noticed in general that the most liberal cities in the country (new york, boston, san fran) are for the most part self sufficient and anyone could live in those cities without a car. i've also noticed the most conservative cities in the country (dallas, southern cites, etc) have some of the worst sprawl problems anywhere. i'm also aware of when these cities were established, but there was a theme that the more liberal cities (as in the makeup of the city in general) had more public transport options than the more conservative cities in general. because i also know many conservatives say that using more cars and suburb access means more freedom to choose a lifestyle, while the carless say they need more ways to get around than a car, and i would argue that more liberals would go carless. (yes, i'm making some generalizations here, doing to make a point, i know there are exceptions) valid theory?
