Small towns don't forget so easily. They see their representatives in person day to day and talk to each other about the town's news and gossip for a long time. Longer news cycle, fewer distractions.

Which is why government ought to stay small and local. Greater accountability and more direct representation. When your vote is one of millions, it means dick. When your vote is one of a thousand, and you can sway ten people, you're 1% of the vote.

Which is exactly why government got big, so we would be lost in the millions.

You have real accountability in small towns. People inherently know you and where you live. You could get your ass kicked for being a dick. Fuck over the people and they're ate your doorstep, they are everywhere you go.

I'd bet those people regret the fuck out of that political move.
