Rick Santorum’s Ugly Appeal to Rural Voters – The Daily Beast. I’m not a big fan of the Daily Beast, but this is a nice analysis of why rural voters support conservative social agendas against their own economic self-interest. It certainly applies to some rural areas around Saskatoon. Rural residents in the last Federal election voted in favour of dismantling the Long Gun Registry at the expense of keeping the Canadian Wheat Board.
