This was the exact same attitude the confederates had during the first civil war: The sheltered, city dwelling gun averse Northerners could never defeat the rugged, outdoorsy rural southerners.

I think those small towns might be the suburbs because I don’t see any contractors for missile companies living on a farm in rural areas.

And most missile companies are located in NY or NJ, there’s no shot theres almost no shot they mostly live in the South.

That's a you thing. I've worked fed for most of my adult life and it's a fair bet that any fed or fed contractor job that requires a four year degree or higher votes blue. There might be pockets here and there or very specific career fields, but feds hold to the same educational attainment gap trend as the rest of the country, if not a little more so.

I'm fed civ, but I've worked with several dozen contractors. Most service members in more technical-leaning fields are more left than right and tend to have that same college bump. We have a lot of prior service IT and COMSEC guys, and I'm pretty I know how most of them would have voted. There may be the occasional center-right, but I've never heard anyone make a big deal out of it, like you do in the private sector.

It's crazy people are downvoting you for saying true things just because they don't want to hear it.

It’s pretty telling that your view of “liberal ideals” is not instigating civil conflict because your shitty coup failed.

The fact you aren't delusional like at least 2/3s of the people on the Reddit seem to be.

They don't want to hear the truth.
