I was purged from the rolls

I walked into the polling place along with my wife and handed the poll worker my card and they went through the rolls and told me that I wasn't in there, and thus was not allowed to vote. There was a person there working for the GOP who it turned out was a republican operative with a cell phone in there behind the table who said that he would try to help me, but he couldn't get through. I was so mad, I am a voter who had always voted for who I thought was the best candidate ( having voted for George H.W. Bush in 1988) but after that, I vowed to never again vote for a Republican candidate not even for dog catcher. I also made sure prior to every election that would never happen to me again. On a side note; I don't think it matters anymore who votes for who in Florida elections because they (GOP Ops) have the system so rigged that no Democrat has been able to win any statewide contests since. When we saw Rick Scott with a 22% approval rating win in a landslide in his last Governor's race, well that clinched it for me, I was SURE, I AM sure. The only chance a Dem has in Florida is if the Diebold machines are taken off line. If not, it'll continue until it is all republicans in state and national races.
