    Why are they always taking so long, Toro? Everyone else and in much heavier populated states than Florida have been done for days now.

    The states needs to get their voting system together and they'd best do it fast.

    If people cannot vote because the government makes it impossible for them to do so, they are also under no obligation to recognize that government's right to rule.

    No, I am not kidding.


    A social contract is a social contract.

    When governments break their contract the people are free to respond in kind.

    Florida has been so obnoxious all along in this election with their voter suppression. They need to get that vote count done. If it was in Romney's favor, it would have been completed.

    I was watching CNN on election night and saw the electoral map turn Florida blue a couple of times, then they kept switching it back to yellow after the commercial break, but the commentator was very sharp with the touch-screen interactive graphics showing each county by the numbers, making the case for a clear path to blue majority. Because it's Florida, I'm not surprised there is still a delay, but I think they are pretty confident Obama won Florida. I am thankful we are not waiting on Florida for the final results, and that 270 votes were achieved without them!

    We need federal standardized voting rules, devices, regulations etc... This patchwork of some states taking it more seriously than others is a problem easily remedied.

    Rick Scott did everything he could think of to keep people from voting. But sadly, with the changing demographics in Florida, this may have been the last chance for the GOP to carry Florida in a Presidential election. That is chilling...

    Everyone should write that governor and tell him what a jerk he is. I mean the whole US.
