Your Vote Counts (if in God you trust)

Without much investigation I found out that more americans voted for Taylor Hicks in the 2006 American Idol final than they did for any president.. Read here.

Hicks got 63 (some sources claim 66) million votes in one night when he won the 2006 AI.

Bush got (including cheating) 62 million votes when he won (read rigged) the 2004 elections.

This is scary.

In 2005 over 500 million people voted in the AI series! 500 million votes!

From what I could read up on us swedes vote for schlager music contests a lot too. So yeah, this voting on music stuff is an international phenomenon. But I´ll bring up how much I dislike swedish schalger music another time.

On a tangent: Check out this song by Toby Keith "Put a Boot Up Your Ass"
Forward to 2:05 for the boot in my ass part.
I´m all for supporting the troops.
I just wish they wouldn´t have to go. Or that Bush´s family and relatives were there fighting for their oil instead.

How anyone can win an american presidential election with only 62 million votes in a country that has 300 million inhabitants is scary in itself. Especially when 78 million eligible stayed at home on election day.

To top it off Fox News (not the best news source, but in a weird way I want to believe this story) claims that 35% of americans think their American Idol vote is just as important as the one on the presidential election... oh god..

This upcoming election will be interesting to follow..
I was 90% sure Bush couldn´t win in 2004, but he did and I´m 99% sure McCain can´t win this year.
Cause if he does there will be more killing going on, that´s a guarantee.
Not to mention an ever more elitist society.

So any good news..? Well yeah. In 2004 59 million americans voted against Bush. I have my fingers crossed that those people and many more with them will vote on Obama this year.

Now back to the pool, and then the computer, and then packing, and then driving to LA, and then driving to Mammoth to board, and then.. who knows?

Today, I went to the beach with my children. I found a sea shell and gave it to
my 4 year old daughter and said "You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear." She put the shell to her ear and screamed.
There was a hermit crab inside and it pinched her ear.

She never wants to go back! LoL I know this is totally off topic but I had to tell someone!
