Subject: Red people , blue people , whats the difference ?

In my near 50 years one thing that has always been crystal clear is that , Red people are republican , Blue people are democrats . The red or mostly red with white and blue elephant represents the GOP . The blue or mostly blue with red and white donkey , ass , mule , whatever you prefer to call it represented democrats . These are two set in stone facts so when election times came candidates from either party would use either the symbol or color of their respective parties so voters would see their campaign signs and know what party to associate them with . Many voters who aren’t that informed and use these symbols and colors to guide them to a specific party in casting votes by association with a name . Politicians know this and that is another reason why they still use these colors and symbols to this day.

Party Line Prejudices in Chatham County, NC

Subject: Party Line Prejudices

Well, I am glad to know someone caught me in the act. I am now prejudiced, uncompassionate, Hispanophobic, and, by inference, close-minded.

Pardon me if I recount social history of Chatham County. I moved here fifty years ago and have seen too many changes to list. I have absorbed viewpoints with which I once disagreed, educated myself on the major movements of society, seen politics alter our lives, and have become friends with political foes of decades past.
