That's very gratifying to see. I doubt that it will be front page news in the liberal press, though.

It scares me that 32% voted yes. :uhoh:

Who cares?




No, seriously. They don't care; they've made up their minds. We don't care, we've made up our minds. And we all--both sides--know that the voting is meaningless. We stacked the poll. Hands up, all those who voted? <raises hand> OK, now just the ones who watched the debate. <lowers hand> That's what I thought.

We didn't win anything. A number on a web page. A couple of bits. Some electrons, and phosphors on a screen.

The real contest is in the Senate. How many of us have participated in that one?

OK, I'll grant that since our side won the results don't matter, or at least won't be widely disseminated. But I guarantee that if the results had been reversed it would have been headline-making on all the usual outlets.

Oh, and for what it's worth, I watched the debate, and I'm in at least monthly letter or e-mail contact with both my senators, and my representative. I agree that that is far more important than ANY poll.

"We didn't win anything. A number on a web page. A couple of bits. Some electrons, and phosphors on a screen."

With all due respect, Flyboy, I think you're wrong. It is true that once word of these polls hits the internet, us gun nuts get to clicking and voting. More often than not, we win the polls because of that. Does that make them meaningless? Maybe, but it tells the gun-grabbers, if not the world, one very important thing: we are focused.

Many on this group and others live and breathe guns every day. By comparison, almost no gun-grabbers are that enthusiastic. Many will vote against guns if given the chance; a few may attend an anti-gun rally, and a few more may visit a web site or two, but for most that's it. An hour or two of gun-hating a month, and they're burned out on it.

As for electrons and phosphor, isn't a letter to the editor nothing more than a little ink on a scrap of paper? a speech nothing more than some hot air passing by some vocal cords? a vote nothing more than a punched hole?

We're lucky you can't shoot anti-guns at a range. Or drool over new anti-guns in an anti-gun rag. Or go to an anti-gun show and meet with other anti-gun owners. :D

I'm surprised the site posted numbers so unfavorable to the socialist parasite cause.
