The reddening or decrease in frequency of light from distant galaxies due to the Doppler effect, indicating that they are moving away from us. The red shift can also take place via expansion of empty space, as in the expanding universe. The opposite of blue shift.
Most galaxies are red shifted, this tells us that our universe is expanding.

n. The political change of the United States in favor of conservatism, specifically relating to the 2004 election, with the re-election of George Bush, and the loss of John Kerry, the great gains for Republicans in the House and Senate, and the voting to ammend the constitutions of 11 states outlawing gay marriage.

Not saying it is good or bad, in fact, for me, Red Shift is a mixed blessing (damn my centrist view).

(this makes reference to the red states being pro-GOP, and the Blue, pro-Dems)

See Blue Shift
The Reagan era was a period of red shift.
