1. Please pick another color
Orange is too much associated with Ian Paisley for some of us.

2. Why Ian Paisley...
...call me naive, but what does Ian Paisley have to do with the color Orange?

3. Check out Irish history
http://www.geocities.com/Athens/Atrium/1678/Orange.htm

The start of a bio of Paisley is at http://www.bookrags.com/biography/ian-k-paisley / It'll get you a vague idea of who he is even if you don't buy the whole thing.

He's repeatedly told the Orangemen of Ulster that if Catholics are given any rights at all, they'll burn all the Protestant churches and steal everything Protestants own, and that's one of his milder statements.

Bush adores him, of course.

4. Shock&AwePoliticsvs.theOrangePassionPeople
I think that your idea is brilliant!

I thought I'd share my Jan. 6 protest story about what the color orange looked like for me on that dark day in Washington. I carpooled down with a complete stranger, connected by online activism, who is active in totally different causes than mine. What we shared in common were the values that you listed in the Orange Party Platform. This could be a way of reframing ourselves as a peoples movement that could attract real patriots from every party.

Shock&AwePoliticsvs.theOrangePassionPeople

I posted these comments on DemocraticUnderground.com
DU) after returning from DC for the Capital protest.
DU is where I crawled to after the election and it's been a very
interesting place to explore. I guess it's finally time to accept
what we were unable to change -- but, it was an awesome day
for us in DC -- attempting to breathe the last hope of life
into the dinosaur that has become of our democratic process.

DU posts:

The Bushies used the same style of attack (shock and awe) on
us in this election as they have in every other democracy that
they've disrupted.

'We the people' have been abused and it's hard for a lot of
people to admit it. But, the awesome power that I experienced
outside the capital at RedefeatBush rally was orange passion,
it helped to brighten the dark skies over Washington. I'm so
glad I made it.

Mounds of evidence. Now in the Congressional Record. More
is sure to come. It's only t a matter of time before the brilliant,
thoughtful and creative people out here in these amazing
'Internets' weave sounds and images together into a
symphony that will help a critical mass accept our truths and
celebrate our heroes.

The day ended with a song by Steve Earle ... "The Revolution
starts ... Now!"

Here's my earlier post with more details:

Yes, It was chilly today at the Capital, but not uncomfortably
so. The crowd was smaller than I'd hoped, but it was glowing
with passion. The color orange was everywere!

I just really enjoyed being up close and personal with the
characters that have had their work grace the threads of DU
since I entered here after Nov. 3. It's a beginning of a new
movement that can only grow as the amazing people who
worked so hard to document the fraud and who DID
stand up today make history. They will need the support by
the thousands and thousands of us to sustain them and raise awareness.

More challengers would have been great today, but one is all we needed.
It's a beginning.

Everyone who contributed to the combined effort should be a proud orange!
I

6. Thanks for that, but I guess...
...the orange name, is not so good because of the connotations with the Irish situation. Why have we adopted the orange color in the fraud movement?
