Last Ditch Effort For Rubio

florida poll

Florida is a last ditch effort for Rubio to win and stay in the race but it doesn’t look good for him. The RPOF has lost the republican voter. Early voting has started and exit polls that have been released shows Rubio may be the RPOF favorite but not the voter.

Let’s use some common sense on what you have seen from the candidates in this area of Northern Florida.

  • Personally, I have only seen Trump and Sanders campaign signs in the area. No Cruz, Rubio or Clinton anywhere. Which tells me, there is no major support for them.
  • Trump has made an appearance within a 100 mile of this area, that a voter could see him in person. Twice.
  • Trump has a local support group. That is active. Even though the local republican parties support Rubio, they have to stay silent. (their rules before a primary.)
  • Rubio did campaign in this area last year but it was a closed event with very poor advertisement and support. They couldn’t fill the building.
  • Local news agencies remember all of the request they sent Rubio to make a statement on issues that concern Florida and Rubio refuse to say anything. Now people are wondering why he get’s no press.
  • People have forgotten he is one of our Senator. Polling shows this.

Florida is projected to go to Trump by a very large margin. With the lack of Cruz campaigning in Florida and the lack of support for Rubio, we have to agree.

Florida Republicans Give Churches The Right To Discriminate

westboro24n-1-web

Florida House Bill 43 passed a vote by republicans in the house giving churches the right to discriminate (AGAINST) any marriage if they feel the marriage would violate their beliefs. Passed: 82/37 (3 republicans voted against it, Caldwell, Hager and Raschein. Representative Porter supported this law.)

The Bill reads:

An act relating to churches or religious organizations; creating s. 761.061, F.S.; providing that churches or religious organizations, related organizations, or certain individuals may not be required to solemnize any marriage or provide services, accommodations, facilities, goods, or privileges for related purposes if such action would violate a sincerely held religious belief; prohibiting certain legal actions, penalties, or governmental sanctions against such individuals or entities.

So what is the problem with it?
The U.S. supreme court has ruled that you cannot discriminate based on “race, color, religion, sex and national origin.” The State of Florida republican party feels, yes you can.

Another problem with the wording of the law is: “if such action would violate a sincerely held religious belief.” So a black couple could be refused marriage services in an all white church or vise versa. Maybe a Baptist couple wanted to marry in a Catholic church. How about a Jewish family that wanted to use a church chapel.

You do know that Westboro Baptist Church could protest a marriage and you couldn’t stop them with the passing of this law.

If the law passes it would mean that no recourse could be taken against the church or any of its affiliates for discrimination.

As of today, the senate hasn’t taken up the bill nor has the Governor signed it. But most likely any republican running for office will have to answer their actions to the voters.
