  1. Missouri USA. “From LA to Washington DC.” This is NOT a country wide problem, just in the Democrat run cities/states! Gun violence, drug use, homelessness, COVID infections are noticeably WORSE in Democrat run cities/states. Conservative cities/states have far lower incidence of these problems.
