“Red Dawn” come true

It was the oddest thing. The other night my husband and I were watching the movie “Red Dawn” (you know, the cult classic that makes grown men run around shouting “Wolverines!”). It’s a movie about the Russians invading the United States. I had never thought about it before, but, probably because I grew up during the Cold War and experienced nightmares of Russian tanks in the backyard and had heard of the threats of Nikita Krushchev to annihilate the West with nuclear weapons, it now occurred to me: Could this really come to pass?

Donald Trump states that he admires Vladimir Putin (former KGB). Wow. I don’t know about you, but the thought of admiring someone like that does not bode well with me. I value living free. Please, people, in all good conscience, do not vote for Donald Trump.
