Hey look, the left has appropriated the NPC meme
I think this demonstrates a pretty fundamental point that defines your average conservative voter. To clarify, your average conservative is, at best, a petit-bourgeois who does not actually benefit from any of the following policies (as enacted by the GOP): lowered taxation, reduced environmental protections, reduction of spending on social welfare/health programs, etc., etc..
In this case the meme is accurate. Despite the loosening of environmental restrictions your average MAGA NPC has not enjoyed base employment or better employment, which explains the anger. I would not call them NPCs myself. I would just call them angry, misguided, and ill-informed.
I do not fundamentally reject their humanity and only wish my California tax dollars, as redirected by the federal government, could actually be spent on their Medicaid programs. If only their GOP state governments would allow it instead of rejecting free money to be spent on their own citizens' healthcare.
These are people who, feeling failed by their government because they misguidedly vote GOP, justifiably believe that government can not help them. But that is a feature and not a bug of GOP governance and their desire to slowly revert to a feudal state.
The ultimate goal of the GOP is such and can be outlined in a few simple steps:
1) Reject the idea that collective effort, in the form of a government, can produce good results
2) Defund the government
3) Claim government has failed. Use free market rhetoric to further defund government by lessening taxes on the rich, businesses, etc.
4) Declare the recent round of tax cuts necessitates a further defunding of social programs
5) Repeat step 3
6) Repeat step 4
7) MAGA NPC's cheer as their rural hospitals are shut down
