I see it as 2 problems:

1. Fear and ignorance goes hand-in-hand with low population density (in any part of the world). Nixon decided to make the GOP the official party of that fear and ignorance, and it has stayed that way since. This will go away as the population increases.

2. Slavery created a culture of evil that has been passed down in the former slave states since the antebellum days. It's like a disease that gets passed from each generation to the next. It can be either eradicated through education or incubated through the teaching of lies. This is where the real fight is. Progress versus the last vestiges of the Civil War.

Great comments. There is also a lot of talk about how this is the last gasp of the Nixon Souther Strategy and Reagan Democrat demographics and the GOP knows time and changing values and demographics are working against the current GOP tribalism and thus are going all out to win. If they fail they will either change or die out as a viable national party.

re: #1 Charleston Chew

BS on low population density. The reason for the dislike of outsiders in lower density areas is more often due to the fact that they are populated by people who don't want to live in high density areas. Some people prefer to have lots of space and few neighbors, and it is not a sign of "fear and ignorance" to want such thing. Not everyone enjoys human interaction to the same extent.

Agree on slavery and its legacy, but, Falcon's right, a lot of us love nature, doesn't mean we are bigots!
