    The funny thing about polls is the question as well as the person taking the poll is usually slanted
    elections are not

    Why would the will of the people clearly scream no new taxes and then 5 months later 80% say that want higher taxes?

    Caging (voter suppression) - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia


    1980sIn 1981 and 1986 the Republican National Committee (RNC) sent out letters to predominately African-American neighborhoods. When tens of thousands of them were returned undeliverable, the party successfully challenged the voters and had them deleted from voting rolls. Due to the violation of the Voting Rights Act, the RNC was taken to court. Its officials entered a consent decree which prohibited the party from engaging in anti-fraud initiatives that targeted minorities or conducting mail campaigns to "compile voter challenge lists."[




    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Florida_Central_Voter_File



    In June 2001, The U.S. Commission on Civil Rights released a report and statements[15][16] arguing that Florida was, on numerous counts, in violation of the Voting Rights Act of 1965 and recommending:

    On 1 count that "The U.S. Department of Justice should immediately initiate the litigation process against the governor, secretary of state, director of the Division of Elections, specific supervisors of elections, and other state and local officials responsible for the execution of election laws, practices, and procedures..."
    On 1 count that "The U.S. Department of Justice should initiate the litigation process against the governor..."
    On 1 count that "The U.S. Department of Justice should initiate the litigation process against the secretary of State..."
    On 12 counts that "The U.S. Department of Justice and the Civil Rights Division in the Office of the Florida Attorney General should initiate the litigation process against state election officials..."
    ...And so on, totaling 20 recommendations involving the phrase "should initiate the litigation process" or "should immediately initiate the litigation process"

    There comes a time when the word desperation comes to mind
    i mean no dis respect but really?
    By the way i am 6th generation Floridian
    and that mess in 2000 was your fault, not ours

    I refuse to re live an event that the very people who caused it said later it cost them the election

    The elections weren't about taxes. They were punishment of the Democrats for not cleaning up the Republicans mess fast enough.

    I think that Americans are finally starting to get it.

    Can you say, "Cut off nose to spite face"?

    if you had cancer issues as that man does as well as I do you would show some respect to the misery we have both faced in our lives
    You have no class but as a member of the Obama worshipers I expect nothing different. I am as we speak looking far a way to put you and your threads on ignore
    Sir, you have no class, I fell sorry for those who love and pray for you

    You're right, it was thoughtless.

    Here is a better one:

    One thing we know for sure, the Republican base gleefully applauded their leadership when they held millions of unemployed Americans hostage to force even more unnecessary tax breaks for millionaires and billionaires. The right wing is more mean and damaging than I could ever be.
