I wrote a column that mentioned homelessness and someone from a small town commented that it wasn't a big problem because in their town they had one homeless person and the local church took care of him.
I replied that L.A. County alone had about 60K homeless people. What was his plan for dealing with that? Of course, there was no reply because the size of the problem had never occurred to him.
Rural people think that a county with 10K people ought to have the same say in government as an urban county with 1M people, that government should be based on acreage instead of population.
If you tell them that land doesn't vote, only people vote, they think that's somehow unfair.
They have a very narrow view of the world and think that a few people who think like them should run things -- minority rule.
