    There is a discussion now about the election results, whether Republicans stayed home, and about "turnout."

    Let's do our own "unscientific" poll.

    You do NOT have to use your name, we will NOT beat you up no matter what you choose. Just be HONEST.

    And it may not mean ANYTHING no matter what we find, since by definition we are more informed than the "masses," so WE might have all voted, while OTHERS didn't....

    Let's see what we might find....

    And yeah, you have to be registered as one or the other to answer, I ran out of choices....

    I am thinking that here you won't see a lot of dem voting or admitting to it. Gun rights and dems are not exactly perfect together.

    Yeah, Sat, but I did that to be "fair," you know, in the "new" spirit of "bipartisanship." :cool:

    LIke THAT'S going to happen from the party who INVENTED "Vitriolic Obstructionism."

    But there are actually quite a few Dems who own guns however, but most of them simply don't "get it."

    I live in the land of Blago and Daley, but my vote didn't help. Now I'm looking at an AWB for Crook County and losing about 7 of my weapons to it. I'm not to happy about it! I just hope that I can hide them or sell them to people outside of Crook County(I have to live in it to work-Thank God it's only for about 4 years)

    Why do the dems have to be in power to be bipartisan? How come they were not bipartisan for the last 6 yrs? Bush tried to be bipartisan and look where it got us. The dems will never be bipartisan.
  6. A good point, Sat, and I fear you may be right. It could well be that the Dems will look at this as a mandate for liberal causes and time for revenge against those "mean, evil Republicans." I hope Polish is right about a possible bipartisan approach, but I won't hold my breath nor let my powder get damp. ;) It is only fair to point out though, that the Republicans have not been the paragons of cooperation, nor have they been a cohesive, well structured force in Congress. Internal bickering and scandal have largely prevented the progress that COULD have been made, especially over the last two years when they controlled both houses. I suspect that for the next two years Bush will be writing the first person Latin verb VETO (I forbid) across a lot of legislation.

    I guess we should thank the Good Lord they DO NOT HAVE THE NUMBERS to override a VETO...... :)

    I voted, just wish that the results had been different...:(
  12. I wish the polls weren't limited to four choices. I don't consider myself a democrat or republican. I did vote however. I voted for more republicans than democrats, but I voted for those I felt were best.

    Polish what happened to Sodrel? My wife is from out around Milan, I didn't think Sodrel even had any opposition, all the signs I saw out that way were for him.

    Some of the local talk shows were commenting that many of the demos that won ran as moderates to conservatives. If so I wonder how many of them will support Nancy Pelosi as speaker of the house?

    In S.W. Ohio our two local U.S. reps are as conservative as they come, and they both won by the narrowest of margins. Our newest U.S. senator is a uber liberal, and he replaces a moderate republican.

    I always find the question: "is the country going in the right direction" to be a loaded one. Just because one disaproves of the way the republicans govern dosn't mean we want to go in the direction the far left of the democrat party would take us. In the last election John Kerry often said "if you think the president is doing a bad job, fire him by voting him out". But the choice wasn't get rid of Bush and get some one better, it was get rid of Bush and get some one much worse.
