"... Seems that the Bush-heads argue on one hand that they don't want Big Brother meadling in their affairs but since Bush took office all I see is more and more of just that... Next thing you know they'l be outlawing plaid shirts 'er sandals 'er........"
It seems to me that neither party can point that finger at the other. The unfortunate part is that upon review of the election turn out here and its comparison to the number of eligible voters I come to the conclusion that only minority interests are promoted. 50% of 60% is 30%, certainly not a majority by any standard. Well perhaps it is with-in some standard concocted by the party leaders. I have heard the term "Mandate" bantered about quite often in my time on the planet.
One last thought (random as it may be); The last time in our history I am aware of the reference to colors of States was made they were Blue and Gray (order chosen only due to alphabetical arrangement).
Enjoy the music and the day.
