    You are correct sir. Only the immediate resignation of Obama will do. Unlike many posters on many forums, I don't pretend to be unbiased. I never voted for Bush in either 2000 or 2004. But the vitriol from the left from Jan 2001 on for 8 years really pissed me off badly. I promised myself if Obama got elected I'd return the favor by bashing him over anything and everything I disagreed with him doing. We are simply giving the left what they gave the right for 8 years. Now the left doesn't like it? Maybe next time they won't do anything they don't want turned around on them....or not.

    Florida is openly violating federal law if it continues with this. The Voting Rights Act requires that procedures like this be pre-cleared by the Department of Justice or a court. Florida chose to go to the Department of Justice rather than a court, the DOJ refused to pre-clear it. If it thinks the DOJ is in error, it needs to take it to court. Just to do it anyways is a very serious breach of federal law.

    Certainly does show your capacity to think clearly and logically on matters of import

    No the problem is that with opinions like yours parroting the partisan political agenda and ignoring the fact that these names are NOT random in order to stir up the ignorant public into creating a well meaning outcry over perceived violations. These names are being flagged due to some voters being convicted, dying or lack of citizenship whether by intent, clerical error or other misfortune. This does not mean those flagged in error will, after due diligence, be denied their legal right to vote if they have one !
    The question is more important than the answer!

    Wanta bet on it? Florida has already shown a propensity to disenfranchise voters in past elections, why should it be expected to change for the next one?

    Your claims, as presented, are false.

    See, I called that out

    Will you provide proof to substantiate your claims? Me thinks not.

    My understanding is that there are over 2 million federal employees. Isn't there an agency somewhere which can figure out who is eligible to vote?

    It's been over 235 year now. Aren't the citizens getting a little impatient for the Feds to solve the problem?
    What problem?

    Other than a half dozen people or so countrywide over the past decade or two, can you provide any evidence of illegal voting?

    A little more accurate would be to say one side wants to game the system in one way and the other side wants to game the system the other way. Not that I expect you to understand.

    Republicans want to suppress turnout. Why? Because historically they win elections when less people vote. Democrats want people who shouldn't be allowed to vote to vote because the more people that vote, the better they do.

    I know the partisan hacks don't want to admit that their side is possibly trying to game the system, but they are. They just want to win, and they don't care how it happens. And their faithful minions will help them no matter what.

    No it doesn't, but all the party cares about is that the process will likely take more than 5 months. After which point, it won't matter because the election will be over.
