    ELECTION 2004: God's country Christians' support for Bush illustrates moral counterattack Gayle White - Staff Sunday, November 7, 2004 A maroon Ford Explorer making its way down I-85 Wednesday morning provided a rolling summary of the previous day's presidential election: A Christian fish symbol on the bumper, an American flag on the fender and, in the back window, an oval W '04 sticker. God, country and George W. Bush. Wednesday-morning quarterbacks poring over exit polls seemed surprised to find that "moral values" drove many people to vote for Bush, even if they were concerned about the economy and worried about...

    George Bush owes his triumph to the conservative values of small town America. America’s moral majority is made up, not of zealots, but ordinary folk who care. Welcome to the heart and soul of America. A sign greets visitors outside a truck stop with a resounding: "Let freedom reign." There is one white, wooden evangelical church and lots of Bush-Cheney posters along the roadside. The message on the way out is: "Support our troops." This is Crittenden, Kentucky, a Bible-belt hamlet where the sale of alcohol is banned. Yet it is not completely stuck in a prohibition era time-warp. People...
  • Bush Country 2004: U.S. Map of the Bush Vote by Counties

    11/07/2004 12:25:02 PM PST · by StJacques · 98 replies · 5,390+ views
    Well I've done a search of the posts here at FreeRepublic to see if this has been posted already and I found nothing, so I want to put it up for everyone to see. Take a look at the map of the U.S. showing which counties returned a majority for Bush this past Tuesday: I think this puts a real exclamation point on the Bush victory. There is more to the Bush margin than votes alone, not that the 51% - 48% split is insignificant by any means. There is also geography. What does this map show? It looks to...

    A cowboy was herding his cattle in a remote pasture when suddenly a brand new BMW advanced out of a dust cloud towards him. The driver, a young man in an YSL suit, Fendi shoes, Bulgari sunglasses & an Armani tie leans out the window and asks the cowboy, "If I tell you exactly how many cows and calves you have in your herd, will you give me a calf?" The cowboy looks at the man, then looks at his peacefully grazing herd and calmly answers, "Sure, Why not?" The yuppie parks his car, whips out his Dell notebook computer,...

    WHY did Bush win? My first experience of the American hinterland was more than 30 years ago, on a long, lazy car drive: down from Germanic Cincinnati in Ohio; across the Blue Ridge Mountains in West Virginia, where the radio stations play wall-to-wall country music; southwards through the Carolinas, where the red earth sticks to the magnolia blossoms; then northwards again along the bleak Atlantic coast where the Wright Brothers first took to the air. It was a revelation: no New York skyscrapers, no urban sophistication, and my then American girlfriend had to slip a ring on her left hand...

  • Moby: Split America into "Northeastistan," "Pacificstan" and "Redstateistan"

    11/04/2004 3:55:13 PM PST · by veronica · 183 replies · 3,972+ views
    Democratic party supporter Moby wants to split America into three nations, following George W. Bush's Nov. 2 victory over Sen. John Kerry in the presidential election. The disappointed dance star concedes President Bush received the majority of votes nationwide, after claiming vast swathes of middle America and the Deep South -- but argues California and New York should be granted independence from Bush's administration, because they voted overwhelmingly in favor of Kerry. "America is essentially a right-wing Republican country. We might resist this fact, but it is a fact. It's not a fact in Manhattan. It's not a fact in...

    My history books said the south lost the Civil War, but apparently that was just a battle. The south lost the battle of 1861-1865, but now are winning the war. Excuse the map, I could not find one that had all the states colored in.

  • NRO: Deep Bush States Report Dramatic Increase in Voter Turnout

    ONSENSUS OF THE EARLY VOTING REPORTS [11/02 10:42 AM] Here is one prediction I am willing to make based on the reports of long lines, big turnout, etc.: Bush will win a higher percentage of the vote in the deep-red states than he did in 2000. Of course, this won't help him get to 270 electoral votes. But it sounds like it might help him a bit in the psychologically-useful popular vote. There are just too many reports of longer-than-ever-before lines in very red states. Maybe, like in the case of Oklahoma, it may be Senate races. Maybe, like in...
  • New Arizona poll: Bush 50 Kerry 45

    A new poll by Rasmussen Reports gives President Bush a 50 percent to 45 percent lead over Democratic Sen. John Kerry in Arizona. That mirrors an Arizona State University poll this week that also had Bush up by five points over Kerry. Recent surveys have shown Bush leading in Arizona by between five and 11 points. Bush carried Arizona by six percentage points over Al Gore in the 2000 presidential election. Rasmussen also released new polls on Wednesday showing Bush with narrow leads over Kerry in Nevada and New Mexico. The Southwest has become a top battleground in the Kerry-Bush...
