    The Iraqi Elections
    How many US citizens would turn out to vote if they had a good chance of getting killed for doing it? Not only did 90% of the Iraqi’s vote, they had their finger dyed for everyone to see. Our forefathers had the guts to stand up, how many of us still have it?? We can’t seem get much more than 50% if the weather is good. :( Compliancy or just don't give a hoot??

    You have to give them credit for having the courage to vote.:thumbup:

    Shows that when people are given the opportunity to be free they will take many chances.

    I remember being there for the 05 elections. People started waiting in line the day before for thier chance to vote. It was one of my best days over there.

    I make it a point to vote in every single election both national, state, and local. It is a right to many of us take for granted. The Iraqi people should be commended for their courage.

    people in the USA dont appreciate what they have... and havent for a good while... The same that whine and moan about what the government does, dont do anything about it (not that it will matter THAT much, but an impact can definately be made)
