1. You need not worry

ADM will be willing to step in and take your troubles off of your hands, and your farmers and ranchers can move to a city and sell insurance.

You are right about the small towns. Whenever I travel for pleasure, I take the back roads. All of the former vibrant county seats, at least in the Deep South, are closed for business. The days of the busy Saturday on the Courthouse square is gone. Walmart came in, just out of the city limits, and drove all the mom and pops out of business. Out of state business bought up farms and let many go back to woods. Once our main industry was growing food. Now our biggest employer is a Canadian owned business that grows pot......Our second largest business builds caskets; oh the irony.

In my own rural county seat, the Courthouse square is either occupied by county and city offices or the buildings are unoccupied and crumbling. It is the cost of "progress."
