Pop Culture League Challenge: Red State/Blue State

     Red State, Blue State; One State, Two State... A Thought provoking prompt from

     Election day draws nigh, and the conflicting sides spew hate at each other, and slander the two candidates. We have two sides, divided by hot-button issues, such as guns and right to choose. And each candidate hits those issues over and over, while the real problems, like health care for all Americans, are ignored

    The story we are told is that the reds are rash, ignorant, "deplorable" and love guns and red meat. They think people should be able to take care of themselves and if they can't... the hell with 'em.

     The story we are told is that the blues are effete, interfering intellectuals, and they will tax you to death, take your guns and kill babies. They want to be in your business 24/7 and tell you how you are living your life wrong.

     Don't believe it. Both of these stories are true, and both are false. People are always too complex to put into little caricature boxes like that.

     People need to stop letting demagogues push their hot buttons and acting as a herd. We need to choose based on who will be the best for all Americans, the ones who have been here forever, the ones here now, the ones who come to our shores tomorrow with the promise of freedom in their hearts.
After all...Freedom is the right of all sentient beings!

When all is said and all is done... our Red Vs, Blue is as silly as this one.

If you cut the strings, step outside of the play, you will see that red and blue are the same. We are all just people- afraid, courageous, overwhelmed, coping... our differences are tiny, and emphasizing those differences makes us tiny.
Be great.
