VOTING IN FLORIDA IS NOW ILLEGAL FOR ALL DEMOCRATS
At least that is what Rick Scott and his GOP Bullies are trying to do.
I swear, I am living in a nightmare these days. The GOP/TP is doing everything in their power to make all that is good and just, ILLEGAL and pushing laws that will turn almost everyones life into a nightmarish BAD DREAM that we will never awake from. Havent these people, who care about no one or anything unless they determine it detrimental to their power and purse, HAVENT THEY DONE ENOUGH? Theyve at least done a sufficient amount of PHOOEY to make people realize that they (GOP/TP) dont give a rats ass about the inhabitants of our United States of America, unless such citizens are part of the corporate-hood or very rich.
Come on people, put your thinking caps on, the GOP/TP are out to destroy most of the 99% and its BLATANT. They dont even try to hide their efforts to sabotage, that which we hold dear, they dont have to. They have succeeded in indoctrinating their entire base, rendering them useless as protectors of theirs and our rights.
The Republican Party is the party of NO (voting NO on every bill that they perceive will make President Obama look good) but their sycophants, their followers are the posses of YES and cant wait for their next instruction to vote against their own best interests.
When will the nightmare end? I would wager to bet NEVER, not as long as they can govern and manage the ignorant who look up to them as if they were heroes. To say its a CRYING SHAME, is putting it more than mildly, its more like a crime that they get away with.
Please watch Rachel Maddow, once again, bring forth and expose the truth, like no other person, in the media or otherwise, can do. I wish everyone could tune in to the Rachel Maddow Show and learn exactly what these oppressors are up to, instead of listening to Right-wing conservative media or Internet blogs, which try to demonize her. They obviously fear her or they wouldnt try so hard to silence her voice of REALITY.

Florida has managed to give the presidency to the republicans more than once. No matter how popular President Obama is, HB 1355 could allow them to steal the election once again by disenfranchising thousands of voters.
Florida HB 1355 is a concerted attempt to suppress the vote for minorities, students and low-income voters during the 2012 election.
The Justice Department is opposing changes in Florida voting
procedures and says it wants a trial in the dispute, a move that
could impact the state's August primary elections.
Because the state of Florida has five counties (Collier, Hardee, Hendry, Hillsborough and Monroe) that require federal preclearance for any new elections laws impacting minorities, the U.S. Department of Justice was originally supposed to investigate some of the more controversial aspects of the law. Approval for these counties is mandated by Section 5 of the Voting Rights Act of 1965.
Department of Justice seeks trial on Floridas
voter suppression law
The restrictions challenged in the suit were enacted by Florida legislators in 2011 as part of H.B. 1355, a broad package of election law changes. They include extremely burdensome administrative requirements, unreasonably tight deadlines for submission of completed forms, and heavy penalties for even the slightest delay or mistake. These restrictions are so unnecessarily harsh that they forced the League of Women Voters and Rock the Vote, among other groups, to shut down voter registration programs in Florida even as voter registration rates have continued to decline in the state.
For over 72 years, League volunteers have faithfully and successfully helped to register eligible Florida voters, explained Deirdre Macnab, President of the League of Women Voters of Florida. Sadly, Floridas anti-voter law creates impassable roadblocks for our volunteers, who are simply trying to bring fellow citizens into our democratic process."
