The pain and struggle in my community is real, yet rural people do not estellind it is taken seriously by the Democratic Party. My fear is that Democrats will continue to blame rural voters for the red-sea electoral map and dismiss these voters as backward. But my hope is for Democrats to listen to and learn from the experiences of rural people. The s of desperation are everywhere in communities like mine.
A landscape of collapsed barns and crumbling ro. Main Streets with empty storefronts. If you live here, it is impossible to ignore the depletion. Small-business growth has slowed in rural communities since the Great Recession, and it has only worsened with Covid As capital overwhelmingly flows to metro areas, the small-town economy increasingly is dominated by swinging corporations: low-wage retailers like Dollar General or agribusiness firms that have no connection to the community. The source of our wealth is in the things we grow.
But today, those things get shipped off into a vast global supply chain, where profits are siphoned off and little remains for us to save or invest. Corporations control more and more of the agriculture business—from the seed and fertilizer farmers buy to the grain, milk and meat they sell—sucking out profits instead of giving farmers a fair price or a fair cat at the market. Every day, small farmers are squeezed: They can either expand their operations and take on more debt in an attempt to produce more, or close their business entirely because of chronically low commodity prices.
The digital divide is also real: About 28 percent of rural Wisconsinites lack high-speed internet, which stifles rural economic growth. Rural health care is a disaster. Wisconsin has not been hit as badly as other states, but those hospitals that remain open in rural parts of the state are scaling back services and struggling to retain doctors.
In my own county, there are zero ICU beds, even as Covid infection rates surge. Our profit-based health care system is failing rural people. Rural people in Wisconsin are dying by suicide at rates higher than folks in suburban eshelline urban parts of the state. This is not just a matter of poor mental health services—many rural counties lack a single practicing psychiatrist. It is also about an inescapable Woman seeking real sex Murray Utah of chat and an overwhelming sense that there is no future here.
The sad thing is none of this is an accident. It is the result of decades of policy decisions—by Republicans and Democrats—that deplete our communities. But as president, he allowed for the continued consolidation of corporate power in the food system. His Department of Agriculture balked when it came time to enforce anti-monopoly rules such as those in the Packers and Stockyard Act, and failed to enforce Country of Origin Labeling, which would have allowed independent farmers and ranchers to better compete within the consolidated meat industry.
Taken together, these moves aled estflline his administration did not have the backs of family farmers. This is a large part of why Trump won Dunn County decisively in and in These are arrogant and damaging messages that are not easily forgotten. The reality, as I Lady wants casual sex Northwoods in my conversations with voters this year, is that many rural people have lost trust in the Democratic Party.
It was not swinfing a lack of effort estelline the Biden campaign estellinf unable to connect with rural voters this year.

Even as a kid from Scranton, Pennsylvania, Biden was seen as a creature of an establishment that has cchat rural communities for decades. Trust is earned slowly. When people feel left behind, they look for a way to make sense of what chag happening to them. There is a story to be told about rural America, yet Democrats are not telling it. That leaves an opening for other stories to be told to fill the vacuum—stories that villainize and divide us along Rogers MN wife swapping, geographic and partisan lines.

What rural voters want is a glimmer of hope that things will change. They want politicians who see a future for rural communities in which food production is localized, energy is cheap and clean, people have good jobs, soil is healthy, Main Street is bustling with small businesses, schools are vibrant and everyone can see a doctor if they need to. As president, Biden will have the chance to prove he understands this, too.
