In reality, there are no Blues and Reds but only Purple.

This is all for show. They know nothing will come of it.

Look to AP (Assoiated Press) for all the government lies

all the time. I`ve watched them and the old UPI for many years and found they are nothing more than a mouthpiece for the puppet masters.

It is hard to imagine a more stupid or more dangerous way of making decisions than by putting those decisions in the hands of people that pay no price for being wrong.
