    i thought only "yes" votes mattered for this sort of petition. It's like when you propose a new law, you get a bunch of signatures, right?

    Lol... Impeachment means to put him on trial, not to get him out of office. So they would impeach him, he would be found not guilty of the charges and those people would be stuck with their heads up their asses... End of story.

    Yes, all that matters to them is the 'yes' votes. It would be funny though to see how many more 'no' votes they would get than 'yes'.

    I guess they can't impeach him. He was never elected.

    Bush is not the first president to win the electoral vote and not the popular, and it wasn't like it wasn't close. I take offense when people say he wasn't elected, that demeans anyone who voted for him. He won, Gore lost, simple as that. Florida was a fiasco, a desperate attempt by Gore's campaign. The fact is, the vote was close. And because a couple of counties in Florida did not or could not follow instructions we had a national circus. It's sad when now people talk about putting pictures of candidates on ballots for people who can't read or figure out which side of the ballot to punch out.


    Three times in American history the Electoral College has elected a president who did not win the popular vote.

    In 1824, John Quincy Adams, son of President John Adams, became president despite receiving fewer popular and electoral votes than Andrew Jackson, who finished first but failed to win a majority of either vote. Adams, after striking a deal with the third-place candidate, was elected president by Congress as required by the Constitution when no candidate wins an electoral vote majority. In 1828, Jackson defeated Adams handily.

    In 1876, Rutherford B. Hayes lost the popular vote to Samuel Tilden by 247,000 votes, but won the Electoral College by one vote, 185 to 184. Hayes, who served one term, was derided by critics as "His Fraudulency" and "Rutherfraud."

    In 1888, President Grover Cleveland won the popular vote by 90,000 votes but lost the Electoral College vote 233-168 to Benjamin Harrison. Four years later, Cleveland ousted Harrison from office, winning both the popular and electoral votes by a wide margin.

    Isn´t it time to see that your system was built for an age long lost? It may have worked then, but it certainly does not work now.
