Certainly a good day for the Republicans, even if there were a few surprises.
I often wonder about that 'red' and it makes me smile!
Obviously the US is as far to the right in world politics as the USSR and China were to the left, especially in the Cold War years. But most of Europe, and I suspect other nations around the world, always considered red to be the flagship color of Communists. In the UK for example, the Conservative party were considered right-wing and uses blue, (True Blue), and the Labour party were treated as left-wing, and chose Red, although in recent years that color has faded considerably and many die-hard Labour supporters bemoan the passing of their beloved left wing party. Of course, neither party anywhere approaches the anti-communist stance of US political parties.
So, that "Red" for the Republican party always surprises me.
Who was it who said, "Better dead than red"?
