    Your anecdote is hopeful enough, but there's just such an avalanche of bile out there.

      more their racist insanity is revealed the more people join us.

      The Republican's fed the racist, homophobic, and sexist at the trough for decades.

      Now the rest of the country is seeing all of them for what they are.

      It takes time but we ARE getting there.

        All our of our states have rural areas which do, but the southerly states have the larger cities...so I am thinking more northern than southern NE.

        If so, yes we ARE getting there...

          I live in southern Maine. Until the late seventies all of Maine was rural and much of the southern half still is. The state has a long tradition of hunting.

          My SO remembers teenagers walking down the street carrying their hunting rifles heading to friend's homes to go hunting and no one blinked an eye.
