The words democrat, democracy or democratic appear nowhere in the constitution (article 4 section 4 does state that "congress shall guarantee each state a republican form of government" 2 separation of church and state is not anywhere in the constitution”
“Florida is the 3rd largest state. Florida has the highest credit rating of all the states. Florida has one of the top ten economies in the world. Florida has jobs. (thanks to Yankees that spend their money here) P.S. In the grand jury hearing as to foul play in the medicare scam Scott's name was never even mentioned, so don't bring it up. Nuff said Scott will get my vote”

“Your post is wrong from the first word to the last. You don't even have Florida's size ranking correct. It's the fourth largest state (in area) and in population and is ranked eighth in density of population. The rest of your post is so ridiculously wrong that it merits nothing more than a laugh.”

“lots of people i know will no longer travel to Florida after all the STYG shootings. I suspect tourism will fall off this year. Europeans i suspect will be extremely apprehensive about traveling to a place so riddled with gun violence”

“Facts. The scourge of Teapubs. No, Florida does not have one of the top 10 economies in the world - and is also behind California and New York. Florida's unemployment rate is 30th in the country. Florida is 19th in poverty. Florida has had a significant increase in child poverty (for comparison, New England states have had a decrease). The list goes on in the failings of Florida. Whatever you do, don't let facts and reality get in the way of your blind ideology.”

“Here is a better idea. Grow a pair and stop saying if somebody says "boo" they needed to be shot. Don't pick fights you can't handle. Stop trying to be the big guy when you don't have the guts to back it up.”
“I have a good friend that I served in the military with 45 yrs ago. He has had a little dog for the last 8 yrs and it was really his closest companion. last Friday a pittbull came into his yard and killed his little dog. I know many of you will defend the pitt but this dog needs to die with prejudice. I would be willing to do the honors”

“Roger, I'm sorry about your friends little dog, but you can't judge a whole breed by the actions of one dog. I had a foal that was maimed by a German Shepherd dog, I was bitten in the face by a beagle, A cocker spaniel killed my daughter's pet rabbits. I'm not demanding any of those breeds be banned.
Pit bulls are just dogs. There's nothing mystical or magical about them. If their owners are irresponsible and allow them to roam free they get into trouble, but so do GSDs, beagles and cocker spaniels.”

“Fact #1 Gore wanted to only have a recount of Dade, Broward Palm Beach and Volusia.counties.SCOTUS ,ruled in the case of Bush V Gore (docket #00-949) ruled that that would violate the 14th amendment by not counting all Fla. counties.
Fact # 2Katherine Harris by Fla. law (section7 #102.112) mandates that the vote count has to be must be filed by 5:00p.m. on the 7th day following the election. so Jeb Bush had nothing to do with the election.
Fact # 3 I don't watch or listen to Fox
Fact # 4 Gore lost . get over it.
Fact # 5 Nixon had more of the pop vote than Kennedy”
“4) Not a single disallowed ballot was examined by the conservative state judge who ate up several recount days-a judge who was feuding with the Democratic-controlled state Supreme Court.
Not least of all, (5) a majority of the U.S. Supreme Court-one of whose members had shouted out at an Election Night party, on hearing CBS' Dan Rather call Florida for Gore, " 'This is terrible,' " and of which two other members had close relatives working for Bush-maintained that the principle of equal protection, a principle not previously of interest to them in voting matters, required that state procedures be interrupted and that the recount be stopped.
Meanwhile, (6) enough military absentee ballots arrived after Election Day to affect the outcome, those numbers swelling in the course of the week after Election Day, from 446 on Monday, Nov. 13, to a total of 3,733 by Friday, Nov. 17.”

“Kennedy won the popular vote by just over 100k votes gore won by about 500K. From article by Jake tapper in the Chicago Tribune dated in April 2001 (I’ll try to link)
On the basis of exit polls conducted by a single organization, the TV networks prematurely called Florida for Bush, led by the network whose chief vote-tabulating analyst, John Ellis, is the cousin of Bush and his brother, Florida Gov. Jeb Bush, creating a presumption lasting for weeks that Bush was the victor.
(2) A legally mandated recount in Miami-Dade County was cut short in part under the pressure of a stormy demonstration led by Republican operatives, including acts of physical violence directed against Democrats.
(3) Several county recounts were disallowed by Florida Secretary of State Katherine Harris, a former co-chair of the Bush campaign who, while in office, proved wholly inattentive to technical obstacles placed in the way of would-be voters, many of whom were (surprise!) black, and who hired a Republican-controlled firm to purge felons from the state's voter rolls-a lawful move that resulted in a number of non-felons being mistakenly purged and given no chance to correct the error.”
