What’s the Matter with Rural America?

*Editor’s Note* – In the Wall Street Journal article linked to in Jim Beers piece, reference is made to the possibility that there are actually efforts underway by wealthy businessmen to open factories in traditionally “Red” states in order to deliberately change the demographics and political posturing within those states rendering them “Blue.” While this specific attempt at changing political control and power may be a new and/or different concept, the same end game has been tried often.

We all know about the blatant attempt by political hacks to change the boundaries of voting precincts in order to alter voting results. We also hear the whining about the Electoral College when one side loses an election even though they may have won the popular vote.

It appears that now, another round of “it ain’t fair” is cropping up that every state, regardless of population, gets two seats in the Senate. There are always cries to change the rules when they were not advantageous to cause a victory within the false paradigm of political decisionmaking.

When Barrack Obama was running for president, while nobody was interested in vetting the man and his many faces, I was able in my work to find a similar attempt he made at changing the Court system by stuffing articles in law school Law Reviews. It was believed this effort would influence judges, struggling to find court case precedence and forced to resort to published law review articles in rendering decisions.

It might be worth spending some time looking at all this stuff as another means of understanding the corrupt and rigged government system we are forced to be slaves to.

By James Beers:

The Left’s latest item on their growing list of things (the Supreme Court, ICE, Innocent until proven guilty, gun rights, white males, law enforcement, et al) to either eliminate or neuter is the US Senate per Mr. Willick’s shrewd description.

His historic citation of the middle 19th century encouraging modern opponents of the existence of the US Senate into moving to spots like North Dakota and other such sparsely-settled and so-called over-represented rural enclaves to make them vote as the Left dictates, while having a smidgeon of sense, should cause all Rural Americans to take both note and action.

One need looks no further than the current rural rapine effects of those two modern-day sacred Acts of the urban environmental religion; the Endangered Species Act and the Wilderness Act.  Note the grizzly bears attacking and killing humans and livestock; note the wolves decimating the big game and domestic dog populations; note the “catastrophic” fires that have become routine and destructive beyond belief where logging, grazing and resource management are no more; note the loss of jobs, local taxes, families and communities where residents no more control their surroundings than Poles under German or Soviet occupiers.

These outrages were all perpetrated by a federal government catering to urban fantasies constrained by only one thing, a US Senate where the state balance of 2 per state and special powers like ratifying appointees and Treaties occasionally provided a modest protection to Rural Americans.  Think of what it will be like when dissembled by the Left – and vote.
