Florida -- It's Democracy Stupid



More than 30,000 Florida felons who should not be allowed to vote remain registered to cast ballots in the upcoming presidential election, an investigation has found. Of the felons who registered with a party, Democrats outnumber Republicans more than 2-to-1 in the key swing state, according to the South Florida Sun-Sentinel, which conducted the investigation. Since there was less than 600 votes separating the winner and loser quite recently in Florida you would think 30,000 (the majority of which are democrats which goes without saying since they're felons) felons that should not have the right to vote in Florida would be a big issue. And since the early voting has already begun many of this 30,000 have already voted.



Can we say.....

I would have liked to have seen the government send in a boatload of agents and shut that damn ACORN organization down permanently.

When it comes to voting rules, we need to turn America into a police state. If someone gets caught with voter fraud, we should remove two layers of their skin and dump them into a vat of salted vinegar.

The voter fraud thing could be a real problem is the election is close and there are issues in some key states. Suppose it went to the Supreme Court and they gave the election to McCain. I sure wouldn't want to live in a city then, even if my fire insurance was paid up in advance.

If Obama wins, I have no doubt it will be due to fraud.

Hey, have you guys heard about the dead goldfish that is registered in Illinois?

No word on whether the deceased fish will vote for Obama, but judging by who signed Princess Nudelman up, I'd say it's a strong possibility.

There is speculation that Bush won bigger in Florida in 2000 than we think if the felon vote were taken out.

As a matter of form, papa, I'd like to point out that ACORN has not been accused of voter fraud.

In fact they have not been accused of any crime. It is true that registrants turned in invalid registrations and election commissions rejected them but that is all part of the normal cycle.

There have been intentional acts and in a couple cases it was ACORN itself that brought the matter to the attention of registrars.

This issue went nowhere. Pitch till you win (and that's 2016 at best)

Ducky -- Open your eyes!!! Right here in Missouri alone we had 8 people from ACORN that were charged and pled guilty.

They'll move mountains to let felons vote but they managed to disenfranchise many in the military every election.
