News Desk: Florida Becomes Voting Disaster 12 Years After 2000

WHAT’S IT going to take for our Congress and this country to make voting the right it’s meant to be? It’s unfathomable that Governor Rick Scott and other Republicans are getting away with what’s going on, which includes trying to stop people from casting a vote.

From the Miami Herald :

What began Sunday morning as an attempt by the Miami-Dade elections department to let more people early vote devolved into chaos and confusion only days before the nation decides its next president.

Call it the debacle in Doral.

[...] Early voting the Sunday before Election Day used to be allowed. But it was eliminated by the GOP-controlled state Legislature and Republican Gov. Rick Scott last year after Barack Obama used early voting to help him win Florida in 2008 – and therefore the presidency.

    What’s disgusting is the laziness of the American people and their abdication to their own citizenship to continue to allow this to happen without a riot.

    The right has shown(with the mob threatening the people counting ‘chads” last election in Fl.) that they are perfectly ready and willing to send their Brown Shirts out to bust up any political activity they don’t like. However they get to do this with the police quietly standing by. If the LEFT tried this at the VERY least they could expect a face full of pepper spray and being dragged off to jail.

    No one bothered to correct the many problems involved with voting uncovered in the 2000, 2004, and 2008 elections. What could possibly go wrong in 2012?
