                A characteristic that certainly cannot be under-emphasized.

                      So who picked the color schemes for the parties? The liberal media? I say that as someone who doesn't really believe that much of media is 'liberal'.

                      But anybody who picks red as the GOP's color has got to want to see the party go down in flames.

                          I always kind of thought the GOP somehow got away with one by getting red - I mean, would you rather have a red Ferrari or a blue one? Red is the color of flash and pizzazz and speed - nobody wants the blues.

                          ('course, a Cornell fan MIGHT be biased...)
                          If you don't change the world today, how can it be any better tomorrow?

                            It's actually quite new -- last 20 years or so. Before that, the networks chose the color on their electoral maps on election night and there was no standard. Eventually it became customary for the incumbent party to be red and the challenger blue. Then it became stuck the way it is now (perhaps when the GOP was incumbent for three straight elections?). It would have been better if the Dems were red, IMHO.

                              I had always wondered why hot chocolate was not considered a "hot drink". I've done some consulting for a software company in Provo, UT and the founders and about half of the workers are LDS. Instead of coffee pots they have hot chocolate machines in the common areas. It was a big deal when they had an open bar at dinner for the first time at the yearly user conference.

It's us stopping them from ramming their every whim down our throats. And that appalls them.
                                Actually, I don't hate government. I just hate politics. And politicians. Not the people themselves, just the actions they feel compelled to take to participate in politics. I'm just sick and tired of the endless parade of bribe offers in exchange for my vote.
                                That community is already in the process of dissolution where each man begins to eye his neighbor as a possible enemy, where non-conformity with the accepted creed, political as well as religious, is a mark of disaffection; where denunciation, without specification or backing, takes the place of evidence; where orthodoxy chokes freedom of dissent; where faith in the eventual supremacy of reason has become so timid that we dare not enter our convictions in the open lists, to win or lose.
