Small Town Values

"Small Town Values" is the title of a good article by Devilstower posted today at Daily Kos. The writer explores the perspectives of folks from smaller towns and explores what "small town values" are or might be perceived to be, for both good and ill.

The concluding paragraphs:
Hard as it is for some on both sides of the divide to believe, small town people are exactly as smart, dumb, good, bad, close-minded and curious as those who live in the cities. Small town values are American values, but no more American than "New York City Values" or "San Francisco Values." In fact, their values are the same values.

The only reason to think otherwise is a GOP that's become utterly dependent on spreading the poison of divisiveness and bigotry as their only means to survive.
