I rated this "funny" because, well, I couldn't choose.But urban people actually know what's good for rural people better than they do.
On the one hand, this is true. A LOT of people, especially when voting Republican, are voting directly against their own best interest.
On the other hand, intellectual leftist elites saying this and being horribly paternal about it, is exactly why those rural voters vote the way they do.
On the gripping hand, the white rural community simply isn't anywhere close to a majority, and that they have a pretty much 50% say in how your country is run ins ridiculous.
