What Right Wing Voter Intimidation?
Over the past year Voter Fraud has become an important issue in Florida. Governor Rick Scott has spearheaded the issue by creating new Voter ID laws to curb illegal voting. But the fear remains that it may be too little too late. Florida gun owners are uniting to bring a new law to the table called Protect the Polls. The logic behind Protect the Polls is simple. If you are a legal gun owner in the state of Florida and you suspect someone on Election Day is committing voter fraud you can shoot him or her with your licensed weapon and not be charged with a crime. Precedents have already been set allowing these rights, like the important Stand Your Ground law, and in this case, there is more at stake than just one person’s life; this is for the life of this great country.
Never mind that voter fraud is rarer than rare and that ID wouldn’t stop it. Now the extremists want to be judge, jury, and executioner. They’ll stop at nothing to scare away voters that may “look like” they’re foreigners. People who advocate things like this need to have their heads examined and their carry license taken away.
