Not shocked though. When the next mid-terms come around, look for a massive house-cleaning to rid our nation of the scourge nick-named "tea party conservatism." It's days are numbered. Today is the beginning of the end of the old dusty trail for the teabaggers.

It's effect on all Florida voters is equal, whether it's minority dominated counties in the Southeast, or conservative rural counties in the center of the state.And what evidence do you have that Gov. Scott colluded with GOP leaders in other states to pursue this policy in an attempt to dis-enfranchise minority voters, other than supposition and innuendo? This reduced early-voting time period was implemented a while ago, not yesterday. The only way to extend the early voting would have been to start it sooner, which you can't do in hindsight. The early voting precincts have to be close so the voting machines can be moved to their regular precincts, so they had to close on Saturday for logistical purposes. I guess you never hear about the empty early-voting precincts 5 weeks ahead of time, huh? Well, that's what used to happen. Waste of resources.It's not wishing it to be garbage any more than it is wishing it to be a conspiracy on your's and hoyal's part.You cry voter suppression. What about voter fraud? Why exactly were those Philly monitors ejected? So possibly people ineligible to vote could sneak in, hmmmmmm?

That is, nowhere did it say that Gary Johnson was the Libertarian candidate, Jill Stein the Green party candidate, etc. Is it just me, or does that seem unfair? Let's say I knew that I wanted to vote for the Libertarian guy, but couldn't remember his/her name; I would be SOL. I'm sure there were some voters who just knew they wanted to vote for the Democratic candidate or the Republican candidate, and they got "assistance" on the ballot. That seems to me to discriminate against the 3rd party candidates.Was it like that on the ballot in the other states?

As someone who early voted in Florida, I can tell you the complaint about not enough time is ridiculous. We had polling places at almost all the local libraries. Open for 8 straight days, 7am to 7pm. I went on the 2nd day it was open, walked in, walked out 15 minutes. Easy as could be. The only people I know who voted early and had to sit in line were the slackers who waited until the afternoon of the very last day. As the article stated, there was no natural disaster, no extreme weather, nothing to prevent you from getting to the polls. If you procrastinated till the very end, thats your own fault. Yes, somebody take some personal responsibility!
