Asheville is its own quirky, outdoorsy, hippy-dippy, new-agey sort of American Blue Town. You see, Blue is not only about party affiliation, although most blue people lean Democratic. Blue is a state of mind: creative, free-thinking, liberal, rejecting dogma, open to difference and new ideas, affirming love, rejecting hate.
Blue is also a state of community: diverse, welcoming, compassionate, cooperative and progressive, with a commitment to education, arts, science and reason. By this standard, Asheville definitely ranks as blue.
Celebrate and encourage the blue character of Asheville with a bumper sticker, buttons, refrigerator magnet, shirt or poster. Spread the word, and you'll find all sorts of blue-minded people coming out of the nooks and crannies.
