    Conservatives need to take back patriotic blue from the socialists reds!

    This was interesting

    Since democrats have come out of the “socialist/communist closet” they need to be identified by their true color, RED! I’m old enough to remember the Cold War and the term “better dead than red”. I have chaffed at being labeled “red”. Maybe it’s rearranging deck chairs on the titanic, but I think it makes a difference from a psyops (I know nothing about, just a gut feeling.) perspective.

    Republican should be Red, White and Blue. Democrat should be Pink.

    Interesting chart. Looks like we’ve been on the RED train for a while. Hell, it’s already hard enough to get Americans to see the difference between the parties at all...

    Many Americans can't tell red from blue or Communists from Capitalists or which party is most like communists and believes in collective rights, and which party is more like normal Americans who still believe that individual rights are more important than collective rights or rights that are turned into privileges by a powerful central government and re-distributed to those who are considered the most deserving according to who they vote for.

    And it doesn't help that so many Americans believe what they're told by the media and that the media is in the tank for the Bolshevik collectivists.

    Conservatives should take back caring about the debt , family values, character, and being strong vs. america's enemies.

    There was a time when everyone knew me as conservative. Hopefully, after the election - things will get back to normal.

    It's the MSM who decides what color represents which party.......so, given the traditional meaning of red=communist, it leaves one to consider the reasons why the switch to blue was done for Ds.....(or progressivism, if you will) For them, it makes sense, because their philosophical makeup includes such things as........"identity politics".....ie: The appearance of being "red", is what they wish to avoid!

    In exercises, the military has traditionally identified “blue” as friendlies and “red” as “enemy”. It makes sense that the MSM settled on these color assignments. It isn’t going to change easily.

    It’s your socialist/communist view of America I object to. Get rid of the socialist/communist and America will be prosperous and great again.
