The phrase "Purple America" challenges the
preconception that the United States is neatly divided between conservative
"red " states and liberal "blue" states. Likewise,
"Purple Country" aims to add nuance to the political jargon we so
often accept at face value. In this political lexicon, words are (defined) not
by their conventional definitions, but by articles, poems, political
memorabilia. Their meanings warp over time and depending on who they are said
and heard by. In these times of incomprehension, "Purple Country"
serves as a primer for the linguistic chasm that has divided a nation.
