Eden Hill Journal

Comments, dreams, stories, and rantings from a middle-aged native of Maine living on a shoestring and a prayer in the woods of Maine. My portion of the family farm is to be known as Eden Hill Farm just because I want to call it that and because that's the closest thing to the truth that I could come up with. If you enjoy what I write, email me or make a comment. If you enjoy Eden Hill, come visit.

Numbers

The 2006 "midterm" election is now over. Democrats are celebrating while Republicans bone-up on bipartisan politics, something they had hoped they'd never again need to do. But behind the scenes, the numbers tell quite a different story.
Republican:
In 2000, 17.96% of America's 281 million population voted for George Bush. The percent rose to 21.39% by 2004 when total Bush votes rose from the 2000 figure of 50.46 million to the 2004 figure of 62 million.
This year, 24 million voted Republican representing only 8% of the country's 300 million population.
Democrat:
In 2000, 18.15% of America's 281 million population voted for Al Gore. The percent rose to 20.35% by 2004 when total Kerry votes rose from Gore's 2000 figure of 51 million to the 2004 Kerry figure of 59 million.
This year, 32 million voted Democratic representing only 10.67% of the country's 300 million population.
With only 19% of the population voting, anybody who assumes anything from this election is simply delusional.
