    You don't think that the Green Party would be happy if we officiously changed it to the Mauve Party?

    How about instead of eliminating colors, lets eliminate parties

    Or if a third party wanted to identify itself with red or blue then we have an issue.

    No party should have a claim to a color.


    Green is an ideology.
    That ideology can still be represented by a different color.



    Like Mauve, eh?

    How about if we officiously change the Green Party to the Mauve Party, are you down with that idea?

    Damn, messed this one up.
    No poll options.

    Speak your mind.


    I do not believe any party should have a permanent claim on a color.

    So I would be more than fine with forcing a switch.


    I'm totally down with the idea.

    Congress should pass a law requiring this since it's not busy doing anything else.

    It could be enforced by the Federal Election Commission.

    Make them guys do something to earn their big salaries.

    No purpose whatsoever, we are just doing it because we can.

    Not everything has to have a purpose.

    What's the purpose of neckties?

    Neither the Dems or Repubs have officially adopted any color. Had they and another wanted to identify itself with such color, that would be an issue of free speech.

    And while it is a 1st Amendment issue for the media, there is no reason to allow the media to cause or continue such polarization.
    They should voluntarily bring it back to alternating.

    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.



    That sounds like a good reason to change it.
