Having the police just a few minutes away in the inner city is pretty awful too. Especially when they regularly kill people in your community for no reason, then never are charged with crimes or punished in any meaningful way.
And hey, if you don’t like it and make any noise, the police might just come and kill you too.
That’s literally just wrong. We have counter example after counter example. I’m pretty sure lots of rural hunters are very happy there’s things like bag limits and anti-pollution regulation so that there both are deer to hunt, and those deer have a normal number of heads and hooves.
Like, you can just think they don’t work, but I can use facts and evidence to fuck your feelings about regulation.
And again, their perception is just wrong. They have a narrow and dim worldview, because they live in isolation relative to the world and do not have a chance to experience the global culture they are irreversibly embedded within.
Their walmart chicken tendies don’t just magically appear in a truck on the way to the store, along with the TVs, computers and phones they use.
And their goods don’t just magically disappear when they sell their crops and livestock to those millions of people in global markets either. They think they’re self-sufficient but they’d be pretty fucked if the cities just disappeared. They rely on urban areas for commerce.
Just because republican commentators keep telling them dems hurt their feelings doesn’t make them sympathetic or have valid grievances.
