The much demonized kulaks (a/k/a the top 5%, 2%, 0r 1% depending upon the speech) were the first to rise up against Obama.
Now the kulaks have been joined by the common peasantry, via NPR:
As Mitt Romney and President Obama get ready for their second debate, a new bipartisan survey shows a surge for Romney in a key voter group following their first debate Oct. 3.
The random cellphone and land line poll of 600 likely rural voters in nine battleground states Oct. 9-11 has Romney at 59 percent among the surveys respondents. Obamas support is now down to 37 percent among rural battleground voters, a plunge of 10 points from the actual rural vote in those states four years ago .
The nine battleground states of Colorado, Florida, Iowa, Nevada, New Hampshire, North Carolina, Ohio, Virginia and Wisconsin have a collective rural population of 13.6 million, according to the Census Bureau.
Its a boon to Romney, says pollster Anna Greenberg of Greenberg Quinlan Rosner Research, the Democratic partner in the survey. It will help him because, of course, he will lose urban areas by a similar margin. And the suburban areas are still pretty competitive.
The unreliable nature of the common peasantry was described in what has become known as The Great Speech About The Unreliable Nature of the Common Peasantry (video) given by Obama in the City of San Francisco in the early spring of 2008:
"You go into these small towns in Pennsylvania and, like a lot of small towns in the Midwest, the jobs have been gone now for 25 years and nothings replaced them. And they fell through the Clinton administration, and the Bush administration, and each successive administration has said that somehow these communities are gonna regenerate and they have not.
And its not surprising then they get bitter, they cling to guns or religion or antipathy toward people who arent like them or anti-immigrant sentiment or anti-trade sentiment as a way to explain their frustrations."
This is not the position Obama wants to be in, as he understands the strategy of encircling the cities.
At least there are no cracks in Obamas ditzy youthful Hollywood-type city dwelling base. Oh wait.
Too bad we have those urban areas full of takers.
The kulaks in old russia were the middle class and were targeted after the dictatorship had killed off the bigger producers and had to further gain control by killing off the kulaks. The analogy still applies and our would be dictators need to be swept from government and preferrably run out of the country.
I wonder if Iran, Hamas, Hezzbollah and al Qaeda know that by using weapons of mass destruction on our cities, they’ll be killing many people favorable to their side?
