Recommendations for Amendments to the Florida Constitution - Election Nov 4, 2014

Florida Constitutional Amendments 2014

NO Vote on 2014 Florida State Constitutional Amendments

Amendment #1 Vote NO
Water and Land Conservation
This is a government land-grab and bureaucratic (union) jobs initiative. This amendment mandates that certain collected fees be dedicated to purchase and management even more state owned lands. Instead of allowing the legislature to use these fees to lower other taxes or at their discretion these funds estimated at $648 MILLION to $1.268 BILLION each fiscal year MUST buy land and provide more government jobs to maintain that land (often off-limits to the general public). Vote NO

Amendment #2 Vote NO
Use of Marijuana
Under the guise of “medical use” this initiative creates loopholes that will eventually make marijuana sale and use equal to the access of alcohol in Florida communities. Just follow the money and you see that personal injury attorneys are supporting and funding this as a way to increase lawsuits against those driving or working while “impaired” and causing injury to innocent victims. Vote NO

Amendment #3
Vote Yes
Appointment of Certain Judicial Vacancies

This is a politically charged initiative gives more power to an outgoing Governor to make judicial appointments at the expense of an incoming Governor. However, while this language is intended to clarify the Constitution, it is certainly not clearly written.
A Yes Vote favours appointments by the outgoing Republican Governor.

Florida Ballot Retention of Judges Conservative Republican Recommendation

For conservative recommendation of judges, district court of appeals, most on our conservative recommended list were nominated by Republican governors. Those with a No recommendation, were mostly nominated by Democrat governors. Florida is among the majority of states that use the merit-retention process. In Florida, that process calls for Judicial Nominating Commissions to recommend candidates for appointment by the governor. All new justices go up for a retention vote in the first general election after their appointment. Justices, like appellate court judges, then serve six-year terms before again facing a retention vote. In a ballot retention vote, justices and judges are subject to a yes or no choice by voters on whether they should be retained. Most are retained with high retention rates. Florida's process has resulted in courts that have a mix of conservatives, liberals and moderates, men and women, and members of racial and ethnic minorities. The merit-retention system provides political accountability and a substantial and beneficial degree of judicial independence.

Florida 2014 Judge retention elections November 4

As featured in JP Election Brief: 2012 Retention Elections on November 4, 2014

In Florida, judicial retention elections for Supreme Court justices and appellate court judges are held once every six years. This year, three Supreme Court justices and 15 appellate court judges face retention.

The Supreme Court race is proving to be especially contentious, as various conservative groups and other individuals have been fighting against the retention of Justices Barbara Pariente, Fred Lewis and Peggy Quince. The organization, Restore Justice 2012, is trying to oust these justices on the grounds of inappropriate judicial activism--pointing to a 2010 healthcare ruling and a 2006 death penalty ruling. In addition, the Southeastern Legal Foundation was arguing a lawsuit that accused the justices' of illegally using court employees to file their election paperwork.

Tea Party Battle in Florida

In Florida, Mica, a 10-term moderate John Mica congressman who wields considerable Capitol Hill clout as the chairman of the House Transportation and Infrastructure Committee, is locked in a nasty member-versus-member race against Rep. Sandy Adams, a tea party freshman backed by 2008 GOP vice presidential nominee Sarah Palin.

Vote for Tea Party Conservatives In Florida Election

Tea Party candidates continue to win in Florida. Orlando Mayor Buddy Dyer, a Democrat, has dubbed it "one of those contests for the heart and soul of the Republican Party." Sandy Adams says the big-spending ways of longtime lawmakers and Washington insiders like Mica have fueled the nation's soaring debt, a charge that echoes the deep divisions in the GOP. The two tangled over spending for pet projects and who's more conservative. For decades, some of the most conservative Republicans steered federal dollars to their home districts to boost local economies as well as their own political stock. More recently, anti-establishment conservatives, including tea partiers, have scored election wins by taking sharp aim at excessive spending by Washington's establishment players. Mica and Adams landed in the same central Florida district due to redistricting. The winner is likely to win in November in the Republican-leaning district.

Florida Race Senate and Congress - Conservative Candidates

Rep. Connie Mack IV is heavily favored to win the Republican Senate primary and take on Democratic incumbent Bill Nelson in November. Mack faces former Rep. Dave Weldon, who is seen as lacking the name recognition and campaign cash to effectively reach voters statewide.

Florida Information That Every Congressman Should Know

Florida is a state of the United States. It is located in the Southeastern United States, bordering Alabama to the northwest and Georgia to the north. In 1845 it was the 27th state admitted to the United States. The History of Florida can be traced back to when the first Native Americans began to inhabit the peninsula as early as 14,000 years ago. Recorded history begins with the arrival of Europeans to Florida, beginning with the Spanish explorer Juan Ponce de León, who explored the area in 1513. Lista de los Diez Mandamientos , Spanish Ten Commandments in the Bible Diez Mandamientos

Since that time Florida has had a long history of immigration, including French and Spanish settlement during the 16th century, as well as immigration from new Native American groups. Florida was under colonial rule by Spain and Great Britain during the 18th and 19th centuries before becoming a territory of the United States in 1822. Two decades later, in 1845, Florida was admitted to the union as America's 27th U.S. state.

Conservative Political Bumper Stickers

Political bumper stickers send the message. History of bumper stickers reflects two new technologies ­ self-adhesive paper and Day - Glo paint and combined them into a novelty item perfectly adapted for America’s highways. By the 1960 presidential election, cheap political bumper stickers were everywhere, rivaling buttons as a favorite way for voters to declare their intentions. Bumper Stickers cheap Gilman, who now runs the family print shop, said that national elections create a frenzy in the bumper-sticker business. As soon as the conventions are over, we’re kind of on pins and needles waiting to see if it’s going to lead to some big orders, he said. Gilman has his eye on the Senate battle in Massachusetts. An election that’s a real squeaker is best for a political bumper-sticker man. bumper stickers political

Florida's nickname, the "Sunshine State" due to its generally warm climate, has fostered developments and migrations throughout the state's history, and particularly in the 20th and 21st centuries that have created a diverse population and an urbanized economy. As of 2008, the United States Census Bureau estimates that the state population was 18,328,340, ranking Florida as the fourth most populous state in the U.S. Political conservative bumper stickers dominate the stae.
