Do your stats include illegal aliens and fraud (such as multiple voting)? (just curious)

Grrr Ah yes, those folks are often called the MAJORITY of "We the People of the United States of America".

Aren't you forgetting the not yet born US generations currently being taxed and tyrannized without representation?

Get YOUR government out of MY pocket, off MY back, out of MY life, and stop threatening ME and MINE for disobedience of THEIR laws (so called ), and I gladly stop complaining.

Until that time comes, I'm paying PLENTY for the RIGHT to complain.

GRRRRR!

I'm confused. What are you trying to say? 3.7 million people "decided the outcome", and the population is 305.6 million. Now what?

64.1% of the people voted. I still don't get it. Are you claiming that it's illegitimate because 35.9% of the people don't vote? I don't see how that logic follows....

What is 64.1% of 305.6+ million? If the votes that DECIDED had merely switched to the other side, how would the election have turned out?

The remainder of the votes merely cancel each other out or are superfluous to the outcome.<IMHO> It's ALL just a numbers game and racket. :p :rolleyes:

Actually aprrox. 48% of eligible voters did vote. Kids and felons can't vote. But since black voting was at record highs and white voting was much less than 2004 more people voting would have given the election to McCain.

Still just a MINORITY when compared to those "governed" ( so called ) without consent. How presumptuous of them? :p

Let's ONLY tax and regulate the voters. ;)

"The system is corrupt, beyond redemption, and is not worthy of my support!"

Plus the fact that we had these two people foisted on us as candidates by the establishment. I frankly couldn't care less if we got dumb or dumber elected.
