Well, our poll has come to a close, and we have a definate winner, with 56% of the vote you guys picked JC Watts as Mitt Romney's running mate.
Some notable quotes from Congressman Watts:
"The government taxes you when you bring home a paycheck. It taxes you when you make a phone call. It taxes you when you turn on a light. It taxes you when you sell a stock. It taxes you when you fill your car with gas. It taxes you when you ride a plane. It taxes you when you get married. Then it taxes you when you die. This is taxual insanity and it must end."
"My father taught that the only helping hand you're ever going to be able to rely on is the one at the end of your sleeve."
"They've turned race and poverty into an industry. They say Republican policies have hurt poor people. Point to them. Look at the major cities where you have black leadership. You have black mayors, black city officials. But you often have the highest crime rate, the highest unemployment. Maybe it's time we look at different [policies] for dealing with old problems."
"I`ve said it publicly many times, and will say it once again: I am the NRA. I am proud of the principles you are fighting for."
"But I am convinced that we can prevail. If we do our best, our best will suffice. The strength of America is not our guns or Hollywood or government - the strength of America is our people - you, me, us, other Americans, our hopes, dreams ambitions, our ideas and most important our goodness."
