    There are an estimated 52 million households that own multiple firearms here in the U.S. and most of us vote.

    Quigs and I were talking the other day when he brought up the fact that 58% of the population of the US voted in the Nov 4 election, and out of that 58% that voted, 58% of those voters voted for McCain and Palin.

    I think we need to go back to the popular vote election like it used to be and do away with the electoral college.

    [ditto] I agree. The "Electoral College" was bought by the Liberals this time around - they sold themselves CHEAP.

    Obama won the popular vote 53% to 46% for McCain. Obama had 66,882,230 votes compared to McCain's 58,343,671 votes. In the popular vote Obama still wins hands down. What we really need to do is find a viable candidate.

    The electoral college is embedded in the Constitution. Bad idea to get rid of it. Really bad. We should maintain the republic rather than go toward a "one man, one vote" democracy setup that would permit one vote majorities to deprive the losing side (that may well consist of kids that can't vote) of rights.
