What´s the Matter With Florida?
Atlantic, by Ta-Nehisi Coates

Original Article

Posted By:Pluperfect, 11/18/2012 5:56:41 AM

Allen West is challenging the vote count for his congressional seat. I think I see why: The elections office has admitted making mistakes in counting the ballots, saying that there was an error in feeding memory cards from voting machines through the vote-counting system. At a press conference earlier this week, the office´s supervisor, Gertrude Walker, said workers had acted in "haste" to get results out to the public on election night and that "mistakes were made." The Florida Secretary of State´s office said it was "concerned" about the situation

Mistakes? Doubtful, it sounds more like planned voter fraud. Will there be an investigation? Of course not, they are getting the desired results.

Mistakes were made, likely voter fraud, yet a judge has denied a recount? What kind of country are we living in? Is this how the Fraud got elected, also? If there were legitimacy in this election, Romney would be in the WH.

Florida has been ground zero for voter fraud since sore/loserman tried to steal that state.

Next came Ohio where kerry/edwards thought to recount to victory.

Since then the vote stealing has been refined so that we have the fraudulent re-election of the maoist.

Keep in mind that the fifteen states that had voter I.D. requirements had O losing.

FTA: "...Gertrude Walker, said workers had acted in "haste" to get results out to the public on election night and that "mistakes were made."

Wow, mom was right, "Haste makes waste." You´d think the integrity of the vote is more important than handing the news media the information they are chomping at the bit to receive. Calling elections has become a game to the networks. Why can´t we wait until the all the votes are counted? This whole system is a joke and will remain so until every state is required to have voter ID.

The problem with this article is that it does not explain the "mistakes" and the discussions after the article center around the best method to combat fraud.

In St. Lucie the number of votes cast far exceeded the registered voters, yet no one thought to throw the yellow flag?

The problem is on the LOCAL level. Those votes should never have been reported until every precinct was recounted. I don´t know the voting method down there, but I would hope they have a paper trail to actually perform the recount.

It is hard to win elections when you are competing against people who are Moral Relativists. Democrats have no morals; they believe the ends justifies the means and the "ends" is to win the election and the "means" is to cheat, lie and defraud the system. Their ideology tells them it´s ok to be criminal if you get the desired results.
When corruption takes over, everyone loses.

They should not let this one go--

They have not done their due dilligence on this one, and when you have more votes than voters something in rotten in the state of Florida.

Perhaps there were thousands and thousands of provisional ballots filed which were counted and should not have been until residence issues were settled.... but something stinks!

I am very thankful Allen West is not backing down in this obvious voter fraud case in Florida. I think this will be a good test case to see if voter fraud can still actually be addressed in this country. I think more and more people are coming to realize that Obama won the 2012 election due to massive voter fraud in important districts. I also think we should get rid of all computer voting machines. They are too easy to tinker with and there is no paper trail. I have read that paper ballots are the most secure way to count votes. Millions of votes for Romney could have simply gone "poof" into some kind of digital trash bin and no one would be the wiser. We need to seriously address voter fraud NOW. The Democrats plan for it years in advance and the rest of us are always caught flat-footed when it happens again and again.

The most benign answer as to what is wrong with Florida voting is the lazy bureaucrats and the careless handling of ballots. And, what more can you say for the box of ballots that is always found after the fact. Keep in mind that most all the bureaucrats that run the voting offices are Democrats.

I take some exception to the term ´Florida´. We in Polk County have no problems. You go to the poll, show picture ID and voter registration and it´s verified in the ledger.
We use a paper ballot that leaves a trail if necessary. There are no horrible lines and waiting for hours. But then we aren´t controlled by democrats intent on stealing the election.

as for #21, The volunteers for True The Vote found discrepancies, but it is up to the Clerk of Elections to follow through, ie: had one from Rhode Island arrested for double voting but then Holder brought suit against voter ID and the clerks wussyed out and quit processing the discrepancies.
And by the way the court descion everyone is talking about that prohibits Republicans from monitoring elections, does NOT apply to True The Vote. We will go ahead with this.

Now I see the truth: REGISTRATIONS don´t matter. Fake ballots do.

Why isn´t the Obama administration willing to finance the customs plaza for the new international bridge over the Detroit River between Detroit and Windsor, Ontario? That´s a question raised by this article in the Wall Street Journal. As the Journal notes, the government of Canada has agreed to pay, as part of a public-private partnership, about $3.65 billion for building the bridge, including a $550 million link with Interstate 75 in Detroit. The new bridge would provide an alternative for the privately owned Ambassador Bridge, which was opened in 1929. Yet the Obama administration isn´t ponying up $250 million to build

It’s getting tiresome. President Obama and Secretary of State Kerry are carrying on as if they have everything under control, every crisis has abated, and no one should be overly concerned.

Russian military drills near neighboring Finland have provoked concern that northern Europe may be the next focus of Moscow´s seemingly renewed appetite for redrawing its borders. Troops and jet fighters from all four military regions of Russia were deployed Sunday about 150 miles east of the Finnish border, according to the English-language newspaper Finnbay. The Russian defense ministry said in a statement that the exercises were pre-planned and that more than 50 fighter pilots took part.

If you read Russian news and follow Internet debates, you´d think that Russia was on the verge of civil war if you didn´t know better. Like in other civil wars, the front line runs between colleagues, friends and even family members. The division is over the annexation of Crimea and attitudes toward Ukraine. "Old friends break off relations, children have stopped talking to their parents, and I´ve even heard about divorces. It is insane," the prominent psychologist Lyudmila Petranovskaya wrote on her LiveJournal blog. President Vladimir Putin set the aggressive tone of the debate in his Crimea speech two weeks ago

Drinking Earl Grey tea could help guard against heart disease, it has emerged, after a study found that bergamot extract--a key ingredient in the hot drink--is just as effective as statins at controlling cholesterol. Scientists believe bergamot, a fragrant Mediterranean citrus fruit which gives Earl Grey tea its distinctive flavour, can significantly lower cholesterol.
