    I'm not entirely sure how the OP means it but up until recently networks switched colors each Presidential election. The idea was one color might seem more attractive then the other and give one party an advantage. I think we've only identified Republicans as red, Democrats blue since the 2000 election.

    No major party in the USA is anything like the Red Communists.

    Wrong!

    The US Communist Party is certainly similar.

    The U.S. Communist Party could not by any stretch of imagination be called a major party.

    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.
    Red and blue were assigned by the TV news media when reporting on Presidential elections using a map of the US. Initially the GOP was blue and the democrats were red.

    IMHO, no. But I do think the runner up in Presidential elections needs to be the VP as was the case originally and allowed to have 2 or 3 cabinet picks. Under my proposal the VP may not run for POTUS until the President is out of office or in his second term. This country is way too polarized. We need to work together starting at the top.
    Having opinions all over the map is a good sign of a person capable of autonomous thinking. Felix -2011

    How about just changing the imbeciles elected to public office every 4 years instead of colors. After being in office for longer than 4 years, the only color they see is the color of money.

    That's all true. Historically they switched frequently, although Democrats were more often identified as red and Republicans blue until 2000. Still, I don't think this is at all a good reason to federally mandate it.
    There should be Instant Runoff Voting

    If you expect people to be rational, you aren't being rational.
