When it comes to politics, you either know your information or you don’t. You’d be surprised at the amount of people who don’t really know much. Here’s the first little lesson in politics. Each political party can be identified by a symbol. This symbol will pretty much set each political party apart. If you know the symbol, you’ll know what each political party stands for.
So the main concern for newbie’s is identifying political party symbols.
First, it’s important to know which symbol is what color. For liberal political views, the color is blue, red is for the conservative and white for third party or independent. Green represents the American political symbol.
To fully understand the political viewpoint, try and remember how the image on the symbol is facing. Is the symbol left-facing? That would mean it stands for liberalism. Right-facing means conservatism and if the symbol represents centrism and liberalism it will be right dab in the center.
Take a look at the symbol for the American Independent Party; it will have an image of an eagle. In the eagle’s left talons you’ll notice some arrows. The eagle will also be over a rose and it will have a banner saying it’s political party right at the bottom of the eagle.
For the Democratic Party, the symbol is a blue donkey facing left. While the donkey itself is blue, the head isn’t. It’s red.
The symbol for the Republican Party is an elephant facing right. The bottom half of the elephant will be red and the top half is blue. In the blue area you will also notice three stars.
If you see a symbol with a bald eagle against the American flag, that’s the Constitution Party.
Lastly is the Green Party. The symbol for this group is a green sunflower. You’ll notice that there’s an image of Earth on there as well and it has the sunflower’s leaves wrapped around it, protecting it.
