The State of Florida has new voting laws in place this year, and a few people have already been caught violating them a year before the 2012 elections. Apparently certain parts of our society down here in Florida are incapable of reading and understanding the new laws,( including a teacher) which are laid out in easy-to-read detail here. One other question we might ask, is that if a person can not read the above-linked voting law, how in the world can they ever research the candidates and actually know whom to vote for today? When people have to be herded to register to vote like blind sheep, what does that say about their ability to cast informed and educated votes? This is how unqualified politicians end up getting elected over other, sometimes better candidates, in our electoral system today. Uninformed voters are being manipulated by misinformation and soundbites on TV instead of actually voting for the candidate that will serve their constituents the best. The false rhetoric being spread about Florida’s new voter law suppressing certain groups of voters is a perfect example of voters being manipulated by misinformation. This is also how we get career politicians that constantly trample our constitutional rights and the rule of law while being reelected over and over. Senator Bill Nelson is one of those types of politicians, and Connie Mack is going to see about changing that situation in the Florida U.S. Senate race in 2012.
Much to the dismay of the media and certain political operatives down here in Florida, the new voting laws do not in fact, suppress anyone’s opportunity to vote, as Senator Bill Nelson (D-Fl) is contending. The new laws were created to eliminate Acorn-style vote fraud and nothing more. The law changes the rules for voter registrations in that people who want to register hundreds or thousands of new voters,( such as this teacher does) must register with the supervisor of elections beforehand, and update them on their activities on a daily basis. This will prevent people from registering 10,000 new voters and holding them until the last minute, which in turn floods the system to the point where the state election employees can not make sure all of the newly registered voters are legit. One teacher did just that in a previous Florida election, and held voter registrations some 6 months in a locker before turning them in. That practice will no longer be tolerated here in Florida.
The media here in Florida are also shamelessly giving Democrats a huge voice in falsely claiming that this new law will somehow suppress certain voter’s rights. The Democrats, being led by Sen. Nelson, even want the Department of Justice to interfere with the new voting laws. Florida and national Democrats are using the usual plethora of supposed victims in Seniors, youth and now even saying that the law somehow discriminates against the gay community! When people do a Google search on the new Florida voting law right now, they are inundated with false claims that the new law will somehow suppress voters of certain groups in a whopping 49 of the top 50 pages that come up in your browser window. Tell me that isn’t being manipulated there. Common sense lets folks read the above-linked law and see that bunch of bunk as the propaganda campaign by Democrats that it truly represents.
Of course the 99% Liberal media machines here in Florida now want to paint the supposed teacher who broke the new election laws as a victim of some grand Republican vote-suppressing conspiracy. The only thing she is a victim of here, is her own stupidity in not researching the new law before signing up school students to vote. This also explains how Obama captured a huge portion of the youth vote in 2008. Dem-activist teachers have been filling their student’s heads with misinformation while corralling them to vote, such as this teacher has been doing when whining about the new voting laws in Florida. According to Democrats and their media puppets here in Florida, there was/is no proof of widespread vote fraud in Florida, and therefore no need for any laws to prevent it. Oh really?
The 2008 election year alone proves otherwise, and CDN believes in publishing the facts, not repeating the D.A.M. talking points loaded with misinformation and flat out lies. At ballotpedia we see the harsh reality of the need to protect the integrity of Florida’s voting system in the number of proven voter fraud cases in 2008 alone: Pay attention folks, as you will not see this information being published by The St. Pete Times, Tampa Tribune or any other mainly Liberal-controlled media puppet organizations down here in Florida:
Nov 02, 2008 2000 people found in one Indiana county also in Florida in which The Journal Gazette compared the list of 222,000 active registered voters in Allen County with the list of more than 12 million registered voters in Florida and found that 2,172 registrations have the same first and last names, middle names or initials and the same birth dates and are listed as active, eligible voters in both places
Nov 01, 2008 Mentally-handicapped citizens illegally registered to vote in Florida in which In South Florida, a Collier woman states that her two mentally handicapped adult children have been registered to vote in an illegal act. Since her children (Michael, 19, and Jennifer, 32) are not able to read and write, or even tell you where they live, they did not register to vote by themselves, nor would they be competent to vote. Both of Griselle Gonzalez’ children live in the same adult group home in Broward County. According to a spokesman for the group home, the home registers its residents, however most of them will not vote. For those who require authorization from a guardian, written consent is obtained before registration can occur. Griselle Gonzales is the guardian of both of her children and denies ever giving authorization. She said “I don’t think they should be allowed to vote. I mean, especially not because I don’t want them to have the right to be a citizen, but because I don’t want somebody to chose for them.”
Oct 31, 2008 More dead people voting in Florida in which we see Chanel Nine News discovered 1,636 registered voters in Central Florida are dead. Although most of these people never show up to vote, a few of them did in the 2006 election. Marjorie Branch died in 2004, yet voted in the 2006 election.
Oct 29, 2008 Florida rolls contain dead people, felons, duplicates: With balloting well under way in the 2008 general election, the Sun Sentinel found more than 65,000 ineligible and duplicate voters on Florida’s registration rolls. These included at least 600 dead people, 32,000 voters registered more than once and more than 33,000 convicted felons who by law, should not be allowed to cast ballots.
And just this week, the FBI arrested 8 people in Florida for absentee ballot fraud as RedState.com reported here.
Looking at all of the above evidence, I believe it is safe to state that any politicians/political activists/media puppets in Florida that say we do not have a vote fraud problem ( in order to bash the new vote law) are simply spreading misinformation, or in denial of reality, take your pick.
The new Florida voting laws that are in effect as of September, 2011 are not hidden or inaccessible as many claim they are, and can be accessed right here for all to read: New 2011 Florida Voting Laws. They are NOT as many people are claiming, designed to suppress certain voting groups. Read the law.
Again, the new Florida voting law is in fact, designed to cut out Acorn-style voter fraud which has been proven to have corrupted our electoral process throughout America, that resulting in the Acorn group being defunded by the United States Congress in late 2009. At the core of a true Democracy is the integrity of our electoral system, and this law takes the necessary steps to protect our right to hold fair elections. The only people objecting to the new Florida voting laws are simply the ones whom have gotten elected using illegal practices and shady get out the vote – voter registration drives to get into or remain in office. Instead of supporting a law designed to prevent the rampant vote fraud witnessed above that happened in Florida in 2008, they in fact want the DOJ to nullify the law. That right there should tell Floridians all they need to know about how desperate Democrats are proving to be as we head into the 2012 elections. Senator Bill Nelson can be seen in the above-linked article repeating the lie that the new law will somehow suppress certain groups of voters no less than 10 times without ever explaining just how he comes to that conclusion. No proof to back it up, just empty rhetoric and misinformation that flies in the face of the truth about the new voter laws in Florida: They are designed to prevent the rampant 2008 Acorn-style vote fraud, and protect the integrity of our electoral system, and nothing more.
Footnote: A 3 Judge federal court panel refused to speed up rendering a decision that involves the necessary preclearance needed for 4 disputed parts of the new law, yet the judges agreed the case should be expedited, just not as fast as the state had proposed. That decision means those sections at issue will not apply for the primary in five Tampa Bay-area and southwest Florida counties that are covered by the preclearance requirement. They are Collier, Hardee, Hendry, Hillsborough and Monroe.
Regardless of the rhetoric, Floridians still have until the new Jan. 31st GOP Primary election date to register and get ready to vote. Then we have a complete year to comply with the new law and register to vote. If you are not competent enough to get registered to vote properly in the time-frame of a full year, maybe you shouldn’t be voting at all. Get registered to vote ahead of time, make any changes in address or your political party today, and all of these falsehoods being told by Bill Nelson and the media puppets down here in Florida about the new Florida elections law are proven to be a bunch of bunk, period. You can make those changes right from home here. It is easy to register yourself to vote in Florida and/or change your voter information. Florida voters, especially high school students, do not need political activist teachers to register them to vote. Students? The next time a teacher in Florida tries to register you to vote, tell them you are fully capable of doing it yourself. After all, it is your gerneration who will be straddled with the massive amounts of debt these politicians have heaped upon you for the past two decades. Right now as it stands, future generations of Americans now owe $15 trillion dollars of debt. Become more than just a puppet-voter doing what a teacher or other political activist tells you, and become an informed voter while you still have the chance. It is your future and freedom from a too big, too powerful government that hangs in the balance here.
2012 just can’t get here fast enough!
