Didn't your rural relatives have different attitudes from your attitudes in 2014?
(The reason I chose 2014 instead of 2015, is that Trump made a lot of speeches in 2015.)
Both the rural people and the urban people have believed for many years that the other group is clueless. If you were able to travel back in time to 2014 and listen invisibly to your rural relatives, they probably would have talked about how misinformed you are (in their estimation).
The problem that America has is that a large percentage of Americans on both sides of every issue view the other side as living in a fantasy world.
And Trump and his spokespeople didn't start this problem. They have exacerbated it. They have fed the flames, but they did not light the fire.
Urban people believe that places like Colorado and Wyoming and other rural areas should be politically disenfranchised because very few people live there. But just as those people who live in Colorado and Wyoming have no idea of the problems which you encounter on a daily basis due to living in an urban area, you are equally clueless as to what it is like to live 365 days a year in an isolated area of sparse population.
It was this attitude which led to the American Revolution of 1776. I realize that sounds strange but hear me out.
Thirty years before the revolution, those who lived in the 13 colonies viewed themselves as British citizens. Part of the great British Empire which spanned the globe. They were patriotic in their attitudes towards the King of the empire
But like Wyoming and Colorado, there were fewer people living in the colonies than those who lived in England, Scotland, Wales, etc. The majority of British citizens lived in the British Isles and they elected people to parliament. Because there were more of them and because they were more educated, more cultured, more civilized and more aristocratic than the misinformed and clueless colonists, they naturally passed laws that were better laws than if the colonists had passed laws.
The result was the Revolution of 1776.
We need less arrogance, less snobbishness and more attempts to find subjects on which there is agreement.
