Blue Dots in a Red Sea (Ep. 9)
Red States Need a Blue Sister City or Two
So you already live in a Blue city. What can you do to help those who don’t?
Become sister cities!
Reach out to each other. Share ideas on how to win. How to run the right candidates. Raise money for them in Idaho or West Virginia. Hold potlucks over Zoom. Get in the car and go visit them. At election time make calls and send postcards for their candidates. You can help turn a red area blue!
This act of solidarity is a sure fire way to unite the majority of us and create the world we want to live in. And it’s fun. Meet your new friends in Tuscaloosa!

** In order to have a troll-free, hate-free comments section — and because if there’s one thing I know about my crazy haters, they would rather spend an eternity in hell with Marjorie Taylor Greene than send me $5 if forced to become a paid subscriber — my Comments section here on my Substack is limited to paid subscribers. But, not to worry — anyone can send me their comments, opinions and thoughts by writing to me at email@example.com. I read every one of them, though obviously I can’t respond to all. And every few weeks or so I share them publicly here on Substack and on my podcast so that your voice is heard by the multitudes in this wonderful community of readers and listeners. The solution here is not optimal but it has worked and my Comments section has become a great meeting place for people wanting to discuss the ideas and issues I raise here. There is debate and disagreement, but it is refreshing to have it done with respect and civility, unfettered by the stench of bigotry and Q-anon insanity.
