Why do Americans use the wrong colours for political parties?
I cannot figure this out. In almost every other Western country including Canada, blue represents the conservative position and red represents the liberal position. In fact, when we call someone a "red" we are usually associating them with communism or some variant.

Why do Americans use red for conservative and blue for liberal? It seems counterintuitive.

The media switched it for the Clintons, because they were so Marxist that the red color for the Rats made it really obvious.
