35. Don't leave. Just think of all the Intelligent Red-staters

When I was in college, back in 1970, I met a guy from Georgia and he was very progressive in his thinking. Being from MAss. I was amazed that a young person could grow up in a state like Georgia and still have liberal thoughts.

I just read a post (see link below) by someone from a red state who talked about how it was to be a liberal and be surrounded by conservatives, racists, whatever you want t call them. It really made me thing that we need to start to support these people because they stand with us under very dangerous circumstances (against their neighbors and relatives) while we sit in Blue and see that our votes actually elect liberals and keep this country from fallling into a very dark place where wealth is power and the ruling class is prejudiced against everyone else and there is no American Dream to work toward.

Hey Red State DUers. A message for y'all.

I think we need to think of a way to send these people reminders in our posts that show we are thinking of them and are glad they are on our team.
