    How?
    The television host would be telling you who the color represents, as well as any internet or newspaper source would also be telling you whom the colors represented.
    Like they probably did when Republicans were Blue and Democrats were Red.
    Was there any confusion noted when they switched previously?

    So like I said; Only idiots would be confused by a color over a persons name or party designation.
    You can be against it all you want. But really, only an idiot would be confused by a change.

    I'd think that, in the interests of maintaining the attention of an already apathetic, ignorant and vacillating electorate, you'd leave things as they are. They're barely cognizant as it is; why jeopardise whatever tenuous grasp you already have of a base hardly noted for its capacity to adapt on a dime?

    You mean "you already have"?

    They did it before and there was no problem. The electorate apparently was able to adapt just fine.
    Leaving it like it is, is polarizing.
    We do not need that.

    Polarity is a given, and defined by circumstance and inertia, not the pretty colours.

    Do you not see what is underlined?

    As we are already polarized we do not need more separating us. Is that such a hard concept to understand?
    It was done previously and there were no problems.

    Explain it.

    You could have just said you don't comprehend the factors resultant of polarity, instead of opting for a level of sarcasm you're ill-equipped to pursue. Polarity will always be an intrinsic feature of the political landscape.

    Now explain exactly how a Con is more likely to embrace the welfare state, or a Lib the death penalty, based on a colour code. How might a revolution be discouraged by changing up the colours of flags or ribbons? You appear to have stumbled on a secret you could market to the intelligence community. lulz

    I have no need to explain the self explainable, especially to one who can not comprehend that which was asked and is ill-equipped to pursue.

    ANd we don't need more of it.
    So again; Mr. noticeably ill-equipped to pursue, what is it you do not understand about that concept?

    You are way over your head here implying what wasn't said. It is a further source of division that we do not need.
    And there were no problems with it switching before, so there should be no problem now - that is, except for totally polarized folks like yourself.

    Right. Well, cheers for reminding me precisely why I stopped bothering.

    Have a nice day, Excon. Soundly thrashed, I now flee from the insuperable. I know when I'm outclassed.

    Your verbosity doesn't save you.

    So you have a nice day as well.

    No party should have a claim to a color.
    Those aren't issues of free speech. Those parties are free to try to identify with whatever color they want. The news media is free to co-ordinate the parties in whatever color they want too. The government shouldn't get involved in infringing on free speech for something so trivial.
