The emblem of the Democrats, the bucking donkey signifying a defiant working class, is 147 years old. No one today associates the donkey with either hard work or liberation.
The broom, the rooster and the tiger have also been emblems of Democrats. The broom is a homie symbol of yester year, now replaced by the foreign Dyson and the hard-to-symbolize Swiffer, both trademarked.
Today, 98% of Americans don’t remember the import of the rooster, if they can even tell one from a chicken. The tiger is an endangered animal that can also be a man eater. So, nope, nope, nope, and nope to those four emblems.
It is time for something new, something different, recognizable, exciting, and resonating with only positive vibes.
What do you think ? Propose a new symbol, design, color, or whatever. Use your abundant creativities.

Politicians enriching themselves, even if coincidental, is not the change even most Trump voters intended.
