Wesley Adams commented on A Thought to Our Official Color 2017-03-24 13:29:16 -0400The colors of Modern Whig Party, like previous Whig parties, are buff and blue, going as far back as the Whig Party of Great Britain. Patriots during the American Revolution also referred to themselves as “Whigs”. General Washington choose buff & blue for the Continental Army uniforms, in part, due to this Whig connection.
Many modern maps of historical electoral college results use a shade of buff for the Whigs, while using blue for the Democratic Party, red for the Republican Party, yellow of the Libertarian Party, green for (surprisingly) the Green Party. White on an electoral map means that the election results for state or district have not been called yet.
Also, keep in mind that red GOP states/blue Democratic states is an artifact of the 2000 election. The colors were assigned not by the parties, but by the news services. Prior to 2000, the colors alternated each election cycle between the Dems & GOP. It has only been in the past 17 years that the colors have been fixed. Internationally, most “conservative” parties use a “tory” blue will the “liberal” parties use red.
It looks like Maine is going to adopt Question 5: Ranked Choice Voting Do you want to allow voters to rank their choices of candidates in elections for U.S. Senate, Congress, Governor, State Senate, and State Representative, and to have ballots counted at the state level in multiple rounds in which last-place candidates are eliminated until a candidate wins by majority?
I support passage of the American Anti-Corruption Act -- model legislation designed as a standard for action to blunt the corrupting effect of political contributions at the the local, state and federal level.
I believe lobbying and ethics laws must be reformed; political fundraising must be transparent and donors must be publicly disclosed; and a system of citizen-funded elections must be installed.
I endorse all efforts to reverse the Supreme Court's decisions in the Citizens United and McCutcheon cases, and pledge to do all I can as a citizen to return control of my government to the hands of The People.
