The problem is one of density, more than anything. The denser the populace, the more likely to suffer from the view that they are not self sufficient and thus must vote for gov’t to take care of them. Places where help is hours away, those people don’t particularly care to have Uncle Sam’s helpful hands on their shoulder.
And when you have denser population, you have increased crime. Because… more people.
And the Denser the Population, the More Political Power is exerted on the State Level. Did you know Obama only won 11 Counties in Ohio out of 88 this past Election? But there were enough Votes packed in there to give him the State.
Which is why some people are saying that the Electoral College should have the Votes divided up by Congressional District, instead of the “Winner Take All” system. Just look at the 2000 Election. Bush vs Gore was all about Voter Distribution, not that LIE that “Bush Stole the Election!”
But anyway, Something has to Give, because there’s a whole Shit Load of people in this Country who are sick and tired of being told they have to Obey the Rules that Bloomberg and Cuomo and Feinstein want to Impose on Citizens WAY outside their Jurisdictions.
