What causes states to turn blue and can we save them?

Curse of the Blue States

by Robert Zimmerman


There is a disturbing phenomenon occurring in America. Some states have actually turned blue.
 
The phenomenon exponentially mushroomed in November, 2016. Confused people began holding their breath and howling at the top of their lungs. This resulted in oxygen deprivation. I have concluded that states have turned blue as a result of cerebral hypoxia.
 
The only known cure is an infusion of red, oxygenated blood flowing to the brain. Normalcy and common sense will return.
