Let me state for the record that these "projections" are about as valid as the National Weather Service guessing how many hurricanes there will be in a given year. The truth is that they don't know, they are just guessing and hope they are right.
Regardless, it is VERY important that EVERYONE get out and vote and be heard in this election. Weither or not the electoral college votes the 'right' way or not is nothing we can control at this date. All we can do is let our vote be counted and pray that God blesses this country in the future.
I will be arranging a carpool to the election site in my area. If you live in the 77447 zip code, please call me to arrange a ride. I only have room for 6 more people.
** to my fellow ARers, make room in your cars and use your gas for a really good purpose. Join me in helping people get to voting booths who otherwise wouldn't make it.
