Last week, while I was working the polls, another volunteer noticed my outfit and commented that he was surprised to see a Democrat wearing cowboy boots and carrying an American flag, because " Democrats aren't patriotic." We must stop with this narrative. Democrats are patriotic, Republicans are patriotic. No one has a monopoly on what it means to be a patriot. Don't let them trick you into thinking you have to pick the blue team or the red team. We are all on the American team.
