The Important Stuff Floridians Need


The Important Stuff Floridians Need to Amend Their Constitution For

Apparently the legislature in Florida doesn't DO anything--which, as legislatures go is not all that bad. As a result every issue that comes up needs a constitutional amendment. We had ten on the ballot this morning. Some of them seemed legitimate, constitutional concerns--death penalty rulings, among other things. However, the one that really just about knocked me flat when I got the sample ballot and again when voting this morning was the amendment to prevent the inhumane confinement of pigs during pregnancy. Isn't this something the legislature could do or decide? We need a constitutional amendment for this? I never fail to be stunned by politics and political games.

On the plus side--I was able to vote against retaining two of the idiotic Supreme Court Judges who foisted off on the American Public the travesty of a political decision disguised as a legal ruling in 2000. I don't suppose it will do any good, as most people won't remember that far back, but it was a brief moment of triumph for me.

Get out and Vote! And vote as pro-life as you can. I know in some states it's nearly impossible, but there's almost always a lesser of two evils, and we should do what we can to keep diminishing the evil.
