Yeah...progress. I don't care much for it either but we've got to deal with it...Hence the need for progressive candidates. My little town is never going to be the sleepy little farming village it used to be. This country is never going back to what it once might have been.
City dwellers recognize the need because they live in the middle of it.
Rural voters find it much easier to hide their heads in the sand and pretend that progress will pass them by. Even as their farmlands are swallowed up by corporate industrial farms and everything else is paved over.
You can't go back. I don't look back and dream of how things used to be. I look to the future and dream of how things can be.
Good coffee, good weed, and time on my hands...
