Too bad they were all 'stupid rednecks'.  Big grin

The Committee for the Study of the American Electorate estimated that 120.2 million people cast ballots Tuesday, a figure that translates into a 59.6 percent turnout rate. That's five percentage points higher and 15 million more voters than in 2000, the group says -- and the largest turnout since Richard M. Nixon faced Hubert H. Humphrey in the 1968 election.

Meanwhile, the other 100 million Americans that could've voted have strongly given the federal government NO mandate to tax them, wage useless wars, murder their own citizens, keep the borders porous, not continue to fund useless, meddling federal agencies, etc.
