Suburbia

The next culture war will not be about issues like gay marriage or abortion, but about something more fundamental: how Americans choose to live. In the crosshairs now will not be just recalcitrant Christians or crazed billionaire racists, but the vast majority of Americans who either live in suburban-style housing or aspire to do so in the future. Roughly four in five home buyers prefer a single-family home, but much of the political class increasingly wants them to live differently.

Theoretically, the suburbs should be the dominant politically force in America. Some 44 million Americans live in the core cities of America’s 51 major metropolitan areas, while nearly 122 million Americans live in the suburbs. In other words, nearly three-quarters of metropolitan Americans live in suburbs.

Yet it has been decided, mostly by self-described progressives, that suburban living is too unecological, not mention too uncool, and even too white for their future America. Density is their new holy grail, for both the world and the U.S. Across the country efforts are now being mounted—through HUD, the EPA, and scores of local agencies—to impede suburban home-building, or to raise its cost. Notably in coastal California, but other places, too, suburban housing is increasingly relegated to the affluent.

That's because the key progressives behind this are elitist totalitarians. They ****ing suck and want to control every aspect of our lives. TOSIAR. Some of these folks need to be hung for trying to destroy the American Dream.

Makes sense. Big government gets more control all the time thanks to the gullible, ignorant electorate being led by the biased and corrupt media. The same Americans voting for these clowns will be the ones whining the loudest when they begin to be displaced, and are too stupid to realize that they were the ones facilitating it.

The Progressives already live in the densely-populated areas. You're the one who will receive the eviction notice!

Larry: Green acres is the place to be
Farm living is the life for me
Land spreading out, so far and wide
Keep Manhattan, just give me that countryside.

Hillary Clinton: D.C. is where I'd rather stay
I get allergic smelling hay
I just adore a White House view
Larry, I love you, but give me Pennsylvania Avenue.

Larry: The Chores!

Hillary: The Stores!

Larry: Fresh Air!

Hillary: Lafayette Square!

Hillary: You are my wife!

Larry: Goodbye rural life!

Larry and Hillary: Green Acres, we're not there!

Agenda 21 is all about centralizing population for maximum efficiency and changing suburbs and rural areas back to wilderness with limited access to humans.
