Poll of rural Americans shows deep
cultural divide with urban centers

Washington Post, by Jose A. DelReal, Scott Clement

Original Article

Posted By:JoniTx, 6/17/2017 1:04:19 PM

The political divide between rural and urban America is more cultural than it is economic, rooted in rural residents’ deep misgivings about the nation’s rapidly changing demographics, their sense that Christianity is under siege and their perception that the federal government caters most to the needs of people in big cities, according to a wide-ranging poll that examines cultural attitudes across the United States. The Washington Post-Kaiser Family Foundation survey of nearly 1,700 Americans — including more than 1,000 adults living in rural areas and small towns — finds deep-seated kinship in rural America, coupled with a stark sense of

What was their first clue?

These facts are perfectly obvious to everyone, even without WAPO trumpeting a poll.

Interesting that nearly every question has to do with the Governments interaction in the business of America. I should say ´Interference´ in the business of America. The second item of note is that it is a poll by the Washington Post. Don´t know how the Kaiser Family Foundation got roped into appearing to support the WP!

The Business of America is actively being interfered with every day, all day long. From regulations to taxation to permitting to inspection, it is the reason for the dearth of jobs and new businesses in America.

This cultural divide as I see it is between those looking for the Government to take care of them and those who only want to be left alone to take care of themselves.

John Galt is still alive and well in America. There are few people of means who are now willing to fight the establishment to make a buck. Better to retreat to save one than to pith it away trying to comply with insane rules.

The Kaiser Family Foundation is just a "not-for-profit" ruse for a highly political organization that rakes in huge dollars tax-free while telling us all how to live. Not-for-profits MUST be ended. They are undermining the fabric of American culture at every level.

It is NOT "demographics" that people have a problem with; it is the lack of understanding of American values and disregard of the county´s governing documents and laws. The Marxists in the cities think they have a "right to healthcare," so they think they can make slaves of our offspring who we have struggled to educate into doctors and nurses. They think the have a "right" to eat well, so they want to make farmers slaves to the city folks so they don´t have to worry about where their food comes from while the perform their sick plays in the city park.And they expect our sons to defend their rights and to keep a bunch of terrorists from dropping them from their tall city buildings. We are to serve them while they hold us in contempt.

No, it is not demographics (read racism).

I´m really sorry I gave the WaPo the click.
The questions are biased to get the intended response.
Ask about social issues and some of the absolutely ridiculous mandates coming from the Department of Education for transgendered students. Or ask about the miserable education many kids get in public schools.
Ask about Obamacare.
Ask about foreign policy.
Ask about gun ownership.
Ask about terrorism.
Ask about entitlement reform and unfunded pensions.
Ask about fiscal responsibility.

I was born into a southern family with rural origins. I can shop and cook in a thrifty manner, make simple repairs and often choose to "make do," rather than run out and buy something I really don´t need. My parents and grandparents imparted their work ethic to my generation.

I am a college-educated woman who has lived and worked in rural and urban areas. My values will always be those of my forebears. Faith and self-reliance are so much a part of me that it seems almost like a genetic thing.

Most of my friends who were born and raised in big cities seem to think that cut up chickens and loaves of bread magically appear on supermarket shelves. They believe a home-cooked meal is something you buy premade and heat up.

I don´t think my friends would do well in a crisis or out-and-out catastrophe. I remember the people sitting on the bridge after Katrina hit and think a lot of city-dwellers would behave the same way. Just sit there and wait for help that probably will never come. The rural citizen will get up and start walking, thanking God for His mercy at having survived.

I don´t know what type of immigrant that guy from Roma was talking about but if he included the "illegal" immigrants. he doesn´t get my vote. I lived as an immigrant as did my wife and family and I don´t have a beef. Illegals got nothing to say about it, they are not entitled to be here. If they think they have it bad, ask them about how those who are illegal in their homeland are treated. otherwise, I don´t hear too many immigrant legally here complaining about their treatment as immigrants.

They always speak of so-called rapidly changing demographics as if they´re a ticking time bomb that will end American culture. They´re right, but they never mention that this was done deliberately. Since 1965 the political class has engineered US immigration and refugee laws for the main purpose of eradicating American culture and feelings of nationalism. Thus, no complaints about constant flood of cheap foreign labor. Targeting a culture for extinction is Lemkin´s definition of genocide.

I saw the rural-urban divide ´up close and personal´ while growing up in western Fairfax county, VA (about 30 miles or so west of DC) in the mid-´60´s to the mid-´70´s. The rural farming area I was born into was paved over. It is now wall-to-wall housing developments, office parks, shopping centers, and highways.
The largely conservative, self-sufficient farmers and ´country folks´ were driven out and replaced by hordes of ´urban people´ and last time I visited, a high percentage of foreigners.
Every landmark is gone. Every farm is gone. Every forest is gone. All the people I knew are gone. My home has been obliterated.

To the teacher in Roma: I live in a sea of brown and you are wrong. So sick of favoritism and every form asking if I identify as a Hispanic. Sick of minorities getting favoritism in job, grants, and opportunities. Christians are under attack.

In the 60s the fight was about equal rights. There is no just thing.

But, no one polled me.

Good point #10- It´s getting increasingly more difficult for those of us in rural America to just ignore the cities as we had been able to a great extent. But the hand of big government that feeds, houses and clothes so many 2nd through 4th world slums tries to FORCE its denizens on our rural areas. The do-gooders from Washington/Lansing are popping up ´mixed -residential apartment complexes all around us through building permit extortion. As soon as one opens, the sirens and flashers are busy around the clock. A person has to just consider moving even farther north.

President Trump “came out against bigotry, against racism, against hatred” after the deadly violence in Charlottesville, Va. -- but nothing he says will ever silence some of his critics, former House Speaker Newt Gingrich reacted. More than a dozen people were injured and one woman was killed amid clashes between white nationalists and counter-protesters at the Charlottesville rally on Saturday. Two police officers monitoring the situation via a helicopter were also killed when their aircraft crashed. As the events unfolded, President Donald Trump spoke out and condemned the violence on “many sides.” Those remarks led to an outcry that Trump

The Department of Justice has requested information on visitors to a website used to organize protests against President Trump, the Los Angeles-based Dreamhost said in a blog post published on Monday. Dreamhost, a web hosting provider, said that it has been working with the Department of Justice for several months on the request, which believes goes too far under the Constitution. DreamHost claimed that the complying with the request from the Justice Department would amount to handing over roughly 1.3 million visitor IP addresses to the government, in addition to contact information, email content and photos of thousands of visitors

North Korean leader Kim Jong Un has backed down on his threat to launch a missile attack on Guam. Pyongyang´s state media reported early Tuesday local time North Korea´s military won´t strike Guam, a U.S. island territory of 160,000 people in the western Pacific Ocean that hosts American military bases. But Kim could change his mind "if the Yankees persist in their extremely dangerous reckless actions." A strike on Guam would be a "most delightful historic moment," Kim said, that would "wring the windpipes of the Yankees and point daggers at their necks." The state media said Kim decided to

Environmental Protection Agency employees under the Obama administration earned emergency overtime pay without justification, in violation of agency policy. The inspector general for the agency released an audit last week finding "numerous instances of noncompliance" of the emergency overtime pay system for employees in Seattle, Wash. Employees must receive a waiver from biweekly pay caps if they are to receive extra pay for working during a natural disaster, or for conducting "mission-critical" work. The inspector general found just a fraction of employees in the final three years of the Obama administration who received overtime pay had requested a waiver. "For Region

BRIDGEWATER, N.J. — White House officials, under siege over President Trump’s reluctance to condemn white supremacists for the weekend’s bloody rallies in Charlottesville, Va., tried to clarify his comments on Sunday, as critics in both parties intensified demands that he adopt a stronger, more unifying message. A statement on Sunday — issued more than 36 hours after the protests began — condemned “white supremacists” for the violence that led to one death. It came in an email sent to reporters in the president’s traveling press pool, and was attributed to an unnamed representative. It was not attributed directly to Mr.

At one point even claiming he “enjoys” the support he gets from the bigots who were rallying in Virginia. “President Trump condemned the violence there on Saturday but he did not specifically speak to the white nationalism that was on display,” complained Anchor Willie Geist as he was
