Quote from: SGOS on January 01, 2021, 08:57:49 AMI've noticed a change in the way political candidates identify themselves on their signs. I don't know if I'm the only one who has noticed this or if I'm noticing something that's always been this way. It may be that in recent years I have lived in a different social environment. At one time, candidates announced their political affiliation. "Joe Blow, Republican for Congress". Republican signs were almost always red and Democrats used blue. Now where I live, Republicans have gone to using blue colors, and signs seldom give party affiliation for either party. Has anyone else noticed this?I find myself confronted with signs of guys I've never heard of, and I have no idea what party they are with.
