    If only the Fed's would put half the effort in preventing illegal voting, we might just have a sound, legitimate electoral system. But as we have all witnessed over the last 4 years, the Feds only care about enforcing laws that meet with Obama and the progressive agenda.

    Yup because Bush was so anti illegal immigrants.

    Oh wait.

    Article is here.
    This is typical liberal racism by danarhea. Ignore the fact that the state has been asking the feds to help confirm who is and isn’t a citizen and act like you are outraged that these “white republicans” are trying to return to the days of Jim Crow.

    How pathetic it must be to see white boogieman republicans hiding around every corner just looking to enslave everyone else. What a joke.

    What does the word 'progressive' mean to you - backwards, evil, bad-ass?

    Amazing!

    During the last election, there were only 12 incidents of voter fraud. Five were prosecuted and all walked. (Senator Bernie Sanders)

    I live in Florida. Last election. Conservative Governor Scott began a drug test for those receiving welfare. The state paid more than $700,000 OF OUR TAX MONEY to put this in place. Less than 1% were tested positive. To save a buck, they'll spend a thousand. Is this what is referred to as truly a "straw man" argument?

    Maybe they should have these people on the bad list wear armbands with yellow stars or something.

    What? It's worked before.

    Florida has, hands down, the most corrupt political process of any state. Right before the 2000 election, for example, they decided to purge ex felons. They ran the initial search and found only a handful. But the Republican secretary of state wasn't satisfied, so she outsourced it to a group with instructions to find more. They came back with a few more, but still hardly any, so she told them to "expand their match parameters" to purge more and kept applying more and more pressure to them to give her more to exclude. She wasn't satisfied until they gave her around 100,000 people to remove from the voter registration database. To get that many they had to exclude people based only on a name match. So, if there was a "Jose Garcia" who committed a felony once, all 350 Jose Garcias were excluded. And, they didn't just stop there. They also excluded "similar" names like "George Garcia" or "Jose Garcon"... It's totally disgusting. They excluded huge numbers of legitimate voters, heavily concentrated in minority communities. And here they are trying to do it all over again. It's just Jim Crow all over again and they know exactly what they are doing.
    Total tax rates- People living in poverty: 16.2%. The median American: 27%. Working people who make over $140k/year: 31%. The top 1%: 30%. Super rich investors: around 15%. Help the democrats retake the house.

    Yea, thank us for putting G.W. in office. Absolutely sinful.

    You're referring to Katheryn Harris, then sec. of state. (At one point she was our back door neighbor.) As Jeb Bush as govenor, wonder how could this have happened?

    Actually, Democrats had a lot to do with putting Bush in office too. Remember the butterfly ballot, which was so confusing that thousands of voters, including hundreds of Jews, ended up voting for Buchanan, instead of Gore, as they intended? That butterfly ballot was created by a Democrat. Just sayin'.

    Ah, yes. Humming a few notes of "The Ballad of the Hanging Chad" as I ponder.

    As a non-partisan comment, what I haven't understood in the past two elections is why various counties haven't made sure their machines and etc. are voting-ready. Seems like this is a task you'd take care of for a November election now. But my bet is that there's going to be a demi-crisis somewhere because election officials aren't thinking about it.
