Get the Red Out!

I grew up in the 1950s, so to me the color red is particularly troubling. In my schools they taught me that there were the good guys—us—and the bad guys—the REDS. So, when the media divided the country, I was (and still am) very upset that they put me in a Red State.

Even after the end of the Cold War, the Red States to me are Viet Nam, China, North Korea, and . . . Virginia? Being called a Red State is a blot on the partially flawless image of the Old Dominion.

It’s time we did something about this! We need to make Virginia “True Blue”. It’s time to get the Red out.

Vote Democratic!
