Some interesting answers seems to be a pretty even split of urban and rural supporters. How do you guys feel about the fact that mega cities are going to continue to grow in size and influence in the coming decades and the fact that the vast majority of the human population will be living in cities as opposed to rural ares?


I think the larger cities shouldn't be allowed to vote in state elections, so I think that they should make the larger cities into city-states so they stop annoying the rest of the people.


How would that work

Easy.

It would be that a major city would also be like a state, City limit, or metro limit, would be like a state lines.


I feel as if that would't be necessary or makes things too complex

Growing up in Southern California, I would have picked urban any day. I loved being close to everything and being around lots of people was almost a necessity to me.
But I'm not currently living in a rural part of Colorado, and I'm surprised at how much I love it here. The night sky is absolutely gorgeous here, and I have the Hundred Acre Woods (it's actually called that) back up right into my backyard. I also think waking up to birds rather than traffic is a nice change for me. The commute I'm not the biggest fan of. It takes me at least 15 minutes til I can get to town. But that's honestly the only downside for me.

When I moved here we were a small town. There were about 5-6 houses on our blocks. Now here we are years later and that same block has at least 18-20 houses. The sandpits the kids all played in are now condo developments. Small little dirt roads have been extended, paved over with tons of new houses added. Our small little town has been having successive votes by the town politicians to push us becoming a full-fledged "city". I miss the way it was. I'm a still country boy at heart.

*whince* ouch! That was pun-ishing!

Honestly, that's part of the plan for the not to distant future though. It's just not the same here. They opened sooooo many new plazas, strip malls, etc that here we are years later most of them have never rented or they've had businesses in them that went belly up fast. The worst part is, with every screw-up the town board makes, our property taxes climb a pretty good amount. Things are getting way out of hand.
