With everything else that's wrong with the Democratic field of candidates I am supposed to choose from, add to that my choice and no other Democrat's choice from Florida will apparently be tallied in the over all delegate count used in choosing this year's nominee. It seems that the DNC has more say over my Constitutional right to vote and have my vote count than anything else. Apparently my state can only hold it's primary whenever the DNC says it can. And January 29th isn't good enough for the DNC. Of course that's not fair or right to voter citizens and how can this even be legal? The silence from the Establishment Media and Politic is deafening on this blatant disenfranchisement of the power of voting Florida citizens. So I will just ask one more simple question, "What's up with that?"

There is a Constitutional amendment on this ballot too, so I will go vote. The amendment is about property tax relief. While I agree that property taxes are too high, I will not vote for this amendment as I believe that the short falls will be made up else where and will impact people who do not own property in Florida, like me. The property taxes are for the services that protect and benefit the owned property and it's owners, like Police, Fire, Schools and what have you. It's simple, the people that own the property should carry the weight of of paying for the services that benefit and protect them. Plus, this amendment will be a wind fall for the huge tourist attraction Corporations that already exploit the land and people in Florida. The attractions are also famous for their low wage service jobs and having the state fill the holes in benefits for these people.

I'm voting such as it is but in the meantime, I sure would like to see some action on having my vote be counted in the Primary. At least as much as Florida votes are ever really counted. Which isn't much if history is a guide. The DNC must be over stepping their authority in being able to nullify the Florida vote count and delegates selected. Still the Establishment silence is deafening. The same thing is happening to Michigan voters as well. It won't surprise me to see someone besides Hillary Clinton win in Michigan. Though it appears that she will carry Florida.

It seems like a flimsy reason to invalidate votes and delegates just because they were cast and chosen on a day that doesn't please the DNC. But as of now that's the way it will be.
