No one should be surprised by the defeat of measure 27, and 23 for that matter. Money = Votes

But Fight For The Living. Keep Up The Struggle!!!

with a 30% turnout nationwide, we are in abysmal trouble. it's horrendous...this particular election so importnat and hardly anyone showed up....the entire election results should be discounted as less than 50% of the People voted...that ain't democracy.

WHY YOU WILL ALWAYS LOSE 06.Nov.2002 13:10

.

Because you're stupid. You give turnout figures that are lower than the number you get when you add together the votes in the various races.

If you can't even add, what does that say about the rest of your thinking?
