    think about the Republican plan to starve millions of people while they are growing an excess of food.

    The problem with political jokes is they get elected.

      4 quadrants.

      Dems who want food stamps and subsidies (rural)
      Dems who only want food stamps (urban)
      Repubs who only want subsidies (rural)
      Repubs who want nothing (nutters)

      now go make a working coalition out of that.

        rural/urban divide on some of these issues, then then Repubs who want nothing (nutters) could be isolated.

        Just a thought.

        I've been thinking alot about rural/urban divides lately on a number of different issues (food, guns, health care, security).

        The damn suburbs always seem to get in the way, though.

        I would think even Republican farmers would want those millions of people on food stamps to continue to be able to eat.

        Of course Republicans do tend to vote against their own interests. So, maybe not.
