Color me ignorant, I just don't remember this, but here's the story.

Hooey.

They dismiss the explanation as nonsense (because the Limeys say it so :roll: ) but the Democrats knew very well that red is the color historically associated with communism, and in their closet they are proud of their lineage.

During the Reagan campaign the MSM boldly put up the graphic proclaiming the affiliation, and then attempted to change the equation because they suddenly recognized that they had stupidly exposed the Democrats for whom they truly are.

:idea:
Government office attracts the power-mad, yet it's people who just want to be left alone to live life on their own terms who are considered dangerous.

No wonder I have trouble remembering which 'color' is what party; during my formative years it wasn't 'settled'.

Well, the distinction between the two have always been a bit muddy, so don't feel too bad.
Remember that RED has a very hot kelvin temp, and BLUE is icy cold.

Blue is also the color most associated with sadness.
