A True Left-Winger
In the current political season, does it seem like the terms “liberal,” “left-wing,” and “socialist” have been getting a lot of exercise?
Has it left you wondering if those making such allegations know what a true “Leftist” is?
We ask a long time, unabashed, Virginia left-winger to give us his take.

Author of the new book of fiction Bloodroot Cantons: An Alternative Story of Virginia and the Blue Ridge (September, 2012) and of non-fiction The Scalawag Scholar’s Notes on Virginia(September, 2012).
