True Colors…

Dear Editor,

Greetings. I am confused by the colors assigned to the major parties in the elections: blue for Democrats and red for Republicans. I have always thought the Democrats were the Reds, the Commie sympathizers. How did this get turned around?

But wait. Maybe the colors are prescient of the future. After all, we have a President who shuns our NATO allies and claims as his true friends “strong” dictators of Russia, North Korea and China. He trumpets, “The press is the enemy of the people,” a Stalinist proclamation for sure. So maybe the new face of the Party of Lincoln is actually in line with their being “Reds.”

Cheers,
