That is VERY dangerous! As that might get the worst of all choices elected. I remember reading an article about that happening someplace where folks were voting against a candidate and they voted for who had no chance for winning and guess who won......

Gun control makes a good issue to quickly eliminate certain candidates.

Re: Get out and Vote.

I was at my polling place at 7:30 this morning. I don't think I've ever been in that place after 8am.

Re: Get out and Vote.

Just got back from voting... and on my way back I passed 2 brand new Nissan GTR's getting off the freeway.


Also, for those of you voting, I URGE you to vote no on 94-97. It just gives more money and power to money hungry tribes like Morongo, who I work for. Ugh.

No, but it's pretty easy to figure. Those candidates who support green groups will be unsupportive of recreationists. Unfortunately, the green groups are very well recognized and extremely well funded, and have a lot of political clout. During the Clinton years we lost a lot of trails. Many people don't like Bush, but he was good for recreationists and filled many administrative positions with people who were not against us. If Hilliary gets in we're going to have some bad years as far as our sport goes..........worse than it already is.
