Voters in American's rural counties voted for Mitt Romney by a 61-38 % margin...Too bad that group only represents one in seven voters and the urban areas disagreed.
US Agriculture Secretary Tom Vilsack says rural America is becoming less relevant....
Evidence of that, he says, is the inability to pass a farm bill.
The Secretary is likely correct.
We are out of step with much of American because rural Americans are more self-sufficient. That's a good thing, but it doesnt keep you from being not imporatant.
