  •  You go, Daddy! And maybe if rural areas got more (0+ / 0-)

    of what they're entitled to as citizens, they'd be less likely to lose population AND less likely to be anti-government and vote GOP!

    I grew up across the river from Sacramento in a suburb, and at the edge of Yolo County farmland. I count myself very lucky that I could grow up appreciating the virtues and problems of all three levels of population and density. Drive down the River Road and stop at a place like Isleton if you want to see a tiny town! Many of my (very progressive Democrat) parents' friends were conservative but thoughtful farmers etc who may have voted Republican but were sensible folks. I wish you the best of luck with educating your legislature to give small towns the same breaks they give the big ones.
