Happy Labor Day, Florida Voters! Let the last lap start … by gimleteye

Labor Day is the traditional start to the last leg of the campaign season in election years, and no election year has been as important to Florida voters as this one. 2014 is the year that Florida voters will have a chance to weigh in on the crony capitalism that is the singular feature of the Gov. Rick Scott administration.

To weigh in, voters will first have to wade through a tide of Scott millions slung against the Democratic challenger Charlie Crist. Cartoonist Bill Day put it bluntly:

Big Sugar is a proxy for the crony capitalism that controls Tallahassee today. 

In the Miami Herald, Marc Caputo asks the next question: "Why are Democrats so often their own worst enemies in Florida?" and points out the low voter turnout that propelled Scott past Alex Sink four years ago.

As a campaigner, Sink was a sleep-walker. In contrast, Charlie Crist was born to run. And as a Democratic governor, there is no one more experienced with the extremists that dominate his former party than Crist.

That's why this Labor Day, resolve to ramp up your own effort to get friends and family and friends of friends and their families to understand what is at stake this November.

Don't forget too this election is for the control of the US Senate. It's time for the American electorate to weigh in on the extremists.

Why vote between 2 known liars? Florida, we are fortunate enough not to
be stuck picking one liar or the other this time. We actually have an
alternative. Take advantage of the opportunity. Adrian Wyllie deserves
my vote. He is a honest average Floridian just as you and I , that is
willing to stand up and do something for the interest of all of us here
in Florida. The other candidates both Republican and Democrat are owned
and controlled by special interest, like puppets and will lie to your
face to gain your vote, then continue the same old agenda that we
complain about year after year. Time to get off this merry-go-round,
election after election, thinking it will be any different. Take a
stand, vote for the candidate that loves this state and is willing to
take time out of his life, effort and money to SERVE the people of
Florida and stop voting for these ‘paid for’ career politicians that are
only out for money and fame and have zero interest in us Floridians.
Even if it’s just for honesty alone, vote for Adrian Wyllie instead of
the other two (Scott/Crist) which are proven liars. The choice is yours
and yours alone, if you want the same old corruption and slap in the
face, go ahead and vote for one of the two puppets (Scott/Crist) OR do
what is right for our (yours and your children’s) future and vote for
Adrian Wyllie. Support him by donating to his campaign, spreading the
word and contribute to the super brochure program which I think is very
powerful. Visit his website today..

I wanted to vote for Nan Rich, but knew she couldn't beat Rick Scott. This is not about who we want for governor, its about who we want to beat. By voting for Wyllie, you are giving away a vote against Scott. By doing that, our beautiful Florida will continue being used by the Koch Bros. as their own personal toilet. Indian River and the St. Lucie Waterway have become killing grounds for its wildlife while farmers pour their toxins directly into our waters. Scott is quickly trying to restore the tax dollars to our education system that he stole the first year that he bought/won the last election. Please don't waste your vote. Don't forget what happened when people "wasted" their vote when "W" was elected. Your vote does count. We need to get rid of Rick Scott!!!

Rick Scott and Charlie Crist need to quit stealing Adrian Wyllie's votes.
