Oh yeah, about the rural Ohio part. Where the only things that matter are (a) that you know the right people and (b) you're gonna keep things just the way they are -- stagnant and passed by by anything resembling progress or economic development. Unless said development is "We done gots us a new dollar store!!!!!" which is a "positive" because with the lack of development, that shit is all that a lot of people can afford. Well, that and meth.
Yeah and when they need more funds they don't even need to ask the voters for a tax increase. The county auditor can just send out his goons to discover a concrete patio that likely existed longer than I have on this earth and raise my property taxes 50%. In the private sector people go to jail for this kind of shit.
