Recommendations for Constitutional Amendments to the Florida Ballot - Election Nov, 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 flavours appointments by the outgoing Governor,

Tea Party vs. Establishment Battle in Florida

In Florida, Mica, a 10-term moderate John Mica congressman with liberal leanings, 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.
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.

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.

Tea Party activists are taking on a number of moderate silent Republican congressman.

Florida Democrat Candidates for Senate

Senator Bill Nelson Incumbent Bill Nelson, should win the Democrat nomination, but after the primary, the race will be competitive for liberal Democrat. For more potential candidates, see News Article below. The election will be quite heated for Senator Bill Nelson and other Democrat congressman. Bill Nelson (D)
Florida’s Senate race is currently a dead heat between incumbent Sen. Bill Nelson, D-Fla., and challenger Rep. Connie Mack, R-Fla. A new Quinnipiac University Swing State poll shows Bill Nelson with 41 percent and Connie Mack with 40 percent.

Florida US Senator

Bill Nelson (D) - Next Election in 2018
The U.S. Senate race between Bill Nelson and Connie Mack remains a dead heat with 17 percent of the voters still undecided, an unusually large number, said Peter Brown, assistant director of the Quinnipiac University Polling Institute.

Florida Senate Race 2014 Election News

A Crowded GOP primary to replace Bill Nelson: Outgoing Sen. George LeMieux, 41, of Broward County, appointed by Gov. Charlie Crist last year to fill the unexpired term of Mel Martinez, is aggressively testing the waters to take on Nelson. Crist's former chief of staff and campaign manager has drawn generally strong reviews in Washington from party activists but is untested as a fundraiser and he would have to overcome doubts about his conservative bona fides because of his close association with Crist. "If there was someone who could do the job as good as me or better, then I might feel relieved to be able to go home and spend more time with my kids," said LeMieux, who offered former Gov. Jeb Bush as the only example of someone for whom he would happily step aside.

State Senate President Mike Haridopolos, R-Merritt Island, has all but announced his candidacy. He is not well known statewide, but his legislative position will enable him to raise considerable money and elevate his profile. "I was conservative before conservative was cool,'' said Haridopolos, a 40-year-old university lecturer and consultant who may be the nominal frontrunner. "I've been a consistent conservative my entire career and made a career converting the Florida Senate from a liberal-to-moderate place, where liberals and trial lawyers and tax advocates won, to a place that is unquestionably fiscally conservative now." Haridopolos has been firing salvos against Nelson for months. In July, he sent Nelson a letter seeking answers to what he deemed pressing questions about Florida's future. Six days later, with no response, Haridopolos issued a news release using his Senate office letterhead. "It is important that Floridians know what Sen. Nelson plans to do in the coming months as our state's senior senator to make up for the inaction they have seen," it read.

U.S. Rep. Connie Mack, R-Fort Myers, has taken a similarly aggressive posture against Nelson. Just before Election Day, his campaign issued an unusual fundraising appeal that lacked any reference that Mack was on the ballot for the U.S. House. Instead it cast Nelson as a liberal "professional politician."

Florida Race For Senate Election 2014 FL Race November

Mack, 43, followed up with another attack on Nelson and President Barack Obama after the November unemployment numbers were released. Thanks to sharing the name of his father, the former Florida senator, the younger Connie Mack IV already enjoys the kind of statewide name recognition most other contenders lack. That may give him more time than others to decide whether it's worth risking a safe congressional seat. "I haven't made any decision to run. I haven't made any decisions not to run,'' said Mack, who is married to U.S. Rep. Mary Bono of California. "Some of my very good friends around the state have called and encouraged me to run. But this is a decision I'll have to make on my own time, and I don't feel the time is now."

Former state House Majority Leader Hasner, 40, is talking to key Republican leaders across the state and country and expects to make a decision after the holidays. Hasner, one of the first prominent elected Republicans to publicly criticize Gov. Crist, is little known in much of the state but is well connected and can raise money across the country from Jewish Republican operatives. He is married to a savvy campaign strategist, Jillian Hasner, who most recently managed Meg Whitman's gubernatorial campaign in California.

U.S. Rep. Vern Buchanan, R-Sarasota, has long been viewed as a future Senate candidate but lately sounds more focused on his new post as the only Floridian on the influential House Ways and Means Committee. A multimillionaire who can self-fund a campaign, Buchanan, 59, has the luxury of waiting until late in the political season to decide his future.

Plant City Republican Mike McCalister declared his candidacy Dec. 6 in the Villages. The retired Army colonel was a late entry in the race for governor this year and took a surprising 10 percent of the vote in the GOP primary, which helped Rick Scott defeat Bill McCollum.

Florida Information That Our US Senator Should Know

Civil War and Reconstruction

Florida provided an estimated 15,000 troops and significant amounts of supplies—including salt, beef, pork, and cotton—to the Confederacy, but more than 2,000 Floridians, both African American and white, joined the Union army. Confederate and foreign merchant ships slipped through the Union navy blockade along the coast, bringing in needed supplies from overseas ports. Tallahassee was the only southern capital east of the Mississippi River to avoid capture during the war, spared by southern victories at Olustee (1864) and Natural Bridge (1865). Ultimately, the South was defeated, and federal troops occupied Tallahassee on May 10, 1865.

Before the Civil War, Florida had been well on its way to becoming another of the southern cotton states. Afterward, the lives of many residents changed. The ports of Jacksonville and Pensacola again flourished due to the demand for lumber and forest products to rebuild the nation's cities. Those who had been slaves were declared free. Plantation owners tried to regain prewar levels of production by hiring former slaves to raise and pick cotton. However, such programs did not work well, and much of the land came under cultivation by tenant farmers and sharecroppers, both negro and white.

Hand Fans and Political Hand Signs

But throughout history, hand fans and hand signs have served a multitude of purposes. Ancient Egyptian paintings depict them being used to "fan the flames" in the hearth. Samurai used partial or all-metal versions, such as the guns and tests, as both offensive and defensive weapons.

Cheap Hand signs have long served as status symbols, fashion accessories, advertising pieces, and commemorates. They've even (purportedly) been used as a means of communication between the sexes, as when a Victorian-era young lady would touch her right sign with a closed fan to supposedly sign query, "When may I see you?" or draw it through the hand to signal "I hate you!" Hand Signs cheap Most printed hand fans can be categorized as either non-folding or folding. The "fixed" or "flat" variety originated first and was often composed of such materials as feathers, woven plant materials, stretched skins or fabrics. Fixed cheap custom printed hand fans, which often resemble ping-pong paddles, are still produced cheap today. Now usually made of paper, cardboard, or plastic, fixed fans for the hand are inexpensive to manufacture, and their flat surfaces make them ideal advertising or souvenir pieces. Vintage and antique specimens bearing images of animals, famous persons or locations, companies, etc., are all avidly sought after by custom collectors. custom hand fans printed cheap

Beginning in 1868, the federal government instituted a congressional program of "reconstruction" in Florida and the other southern states. During this period, Republican officeholders tried to enact sweeping changes, many of which were aimed at power for the carpet baggers, and electing RINO Republican US Senators At the time of the 1876 presidential election, federal troops still occupied Florida. The state's Republican government and recently enfranchised Negroes voters helped to put Rutherford B. Hayes in the White House, and elect liberal Republican US senators.
