I mean, you say "all americans" but that seems kind of utopian.
We are not dealing with rational people. If you gave all Americans a mansion, a Bentley and 2billion dollars they would still be complaining about pizzagate, pedophiles and communism. You have people in this thread that have argued in the past that vaccines are part of a conspiracy by billgates to implant tracking chips into people. It is pretty hard to convince people with rational arguments and evidence when the thought processing unit is defective to begin with.
Maybe you or @Rancid did but my understanding is that the decline of rural America has been going on essentially uninterrupted since the late 20th century, regardless of who's in charge. It's unclear to me whether there would be so much whining about random stuff if the situation was different - I guess there would still be, but I still think it's fair to point this out.
This is also not something politicians could (or should) have stopped since there are good reasons for why it happened - but the transition could have arguably been managed better.
