Rural, Blue Collar, Poorly Educated Vs Urban, Suburban, White Collar, Well Educated: The 19th Century Vs. The 21st Century

After the British vote to leave the European Union, and the support that Donald Trump has gained in the United States, one thing is very clear!

We are in the midst of a revolt of the rural, blue collar, poorly educated against the urban, suburban, white collar, well educated who promote modernization and tolerance on the issue of immigration and race.

It was urban Londoners against the rural parts of England who voted to exit Europe, as it is the major urban centers and surrounding suburbs of America against the hinterland of Appalachia, the rural South, the Great Plains and the Mountain West, who love Donald Trump.

It is really nostalgia for the 19th century against the modernization of the 21st century, and a desire to isolate oneself from outside influences and nations.

The effort must be made to prevent the narrow mindedness of what happened in the United Kingdom from spreading, like a disease, to the United States in this year’s election.

All progressives must unite around Hillary Clinton and help to shape her progressive agenda, assuredly more than under her husband, Bill Clinton, in the 1990s!

    It sounds to me like they are trying to go back to the nationalism of the 1930’s.

    It’s also about age – older voters vs. younger voters.

    Pragmatic – Those Tea Partiers also want to go back to State’s Rights.

    Just read that the Secessionist faction in Texas is calling for the Governor to put a secession referendum on the ballot…
    Leave it to Texas…or in this case just Leave, Texas!

    Texas is such an embarrassment politically, but then my state, Florida, competes quite well lol
