School Lets Dems Register Students to Vote, But Not GOP
foxnews.com ^ | 10/8/12 | Todd Starnes

Florida Republicans are outraged after a school district allowed a pro-Obama organization to conduct student voter registration drives and deliver speeches to classes – but denied the Romney campaign similar opportunities.

Pasco County Schools confirmed to Fox News that volunteers from Organizing For America were given access to as many as a half dozen high school and middle school campuses.

Sounds like the socialists want a Civil War. We need to teach our children to QUESTION AUTHORITY AT SCHOOL. Our schools are the enemy and are to be treated as such.

I've been on various threads recently, saying that I think there will be funny business/fraud/ballot stuffing in November and that this will allow Obama to eke out a win. A lot of freepers think I'm crazy.

This particular situation in Florida is but a mild taste of what is going on.

Democratic recruits. THE IGNORANT and MISINFORMED. I hear they poll 60% plus in elementary school.

I’m scared about this too. Esp. since I saw the Chavez “won” re-election in Venezuela.

No doubt in my mind this will happen in the places that they can count on being able to do this in.

The question is, will voter registration forms where the party affiliation box for "Republican" is checked, ever make it to the dept of elections?

The went to register students in 6 different middle schools and high schools. I doubt very few students were eligible to register because of their age, most especially in the middle school, unless they were a democrat. Still this was entirely wrong and the principal is responsible.

How long until the rats insist kindergarten kids should “not be disenfranchised”.

Especially since it sounds like the final votes in Venezuela were cast by
tanks.

The other part of my fear is that Obama really does want to destroy the country. Blantantly, obviously, unquestionably stealing the election would have one of two effects:

1) GOP would silently acquiesce and Obama gets his second 4 years.
2) There is a hot civil war and citizens rise up to fight the coup.

I believe Obama would be quite pleased with either situation, and I do not think there is a third option that woudl result from Obama blatantly stealing the election. You see, he doesn't really need 4 more years to destroy us -- a bloody civil war would do the job real quick.

“.. a lot of freepers think I’m crazy”.

I don’t think you’re crazy at all. Nothing surprises me anymore with the Dems.. and I mean nothing. In fact, it crossed my mind that O didn’t even try hard at the debate because he knows it is in the bag. I truly do not trust the purity of this election whatsoever. IMHO..

Not a surprise to me at all. When I was in college, I was in an English class one day when the doors suddenly swung open and in stormed representatives from New York Public Interest Research Group (a liberal political action group). Class was interrupted by their speech encouraging us to join their organization, and voter registration forms were handed out to all. The professor made no move to stop this, she was fine with her class being interrupted by them and fully allowed it.

Getting middle schoolers to vote? No ID required.

People wonder why we homeschool.

You are simply a defeatist loser that is always cowering like some little girl that a big scary monster went “boo” to.

“They are going do this and they are going to do that and we’re all going to die...”. How utterly pathetic.

WE ARE GOING TO “DO” TO THEM THIS ELECTION. THEY HAD BETTER BE VERY AFRAID OF WHAT WE, THE VERY PISSED, VERY ANGRY, VERY DETERMINED, QUIET MAJORITY IS GOING TO DO TO THEM.

I just called members of the school board down there. Actually got to speak directly to one of them. Apparently there was some misrepresentation on the part of the group that came in to register the students. A speech was given that was supposed to be nonpartisan but surprise, surprise, it apparently wasn’t. Law enforcement is now involved in the investigation.

I think voter registration should be limited to the secretary of state office and they shouldn’t have to ask.

We have too many stupid people voting now.

Just remember that this is part of the wonderful public education (indoctrination) system that the Democrats love throwing money at with NO expectations that kids will actually learn something . . . . . . . . . . . at least something useful, NOT liberal brainwashing!

The political divide in this country, driven by the left, is reaching levels that make the prospect of reconciliation betwen the left and the right very difficult if not impossible. While it would ultimately make things much better, I believe that we are heading for a time when there exists in this world a United States of Conservative America and a United States of Liberal America with a border that separates the two.

The political divide that exists is directly the result of corrupt, power-mad politicians who seek power and wealth at ANY cost - even if that means fracturing this country.

I think people should show up in person, with ID, at City Hall or the County Registrar to register to vote. That they should do this for EVERY election, no voting rolls that last till long after you are dead.

Your hypotheticals are not mutually exclusive.

I suppose we could also end up in a Bush/Gore type situation, it seems there are ways to get to a tie in the electoral college.

I think if Romney can just maintain the edge he gained in the debate he’ll prevail by a convincing enough margin. Oh yeah, and all his lukewarm supporters on the right, who already know/knew all about him, have to turn out.

Even setting aside all the good, extreme right arguments about Obama (that he’s a commie/closet commie; that he’s a secret muslim/muslim sypathizer; that he hates/want to take down several notches America and white people) ALL of which I believe (in one variant or another of those I posted) - he’s been a very poor president.

He hasn’t helped the economy enough, his foreign policy has lost Egypt and led to the murder of our Ambassador to Libya and several others, no one can really doubt that Al Queda, et al are emboldened by him.

And further, he’s out of ideas. He’s got 3 ideas left: raise taxes on “the rich”, invest in “green energy”, hire more teachers/cops/firemen.

Mitt Romney DESERVES to win this election. He MIGHT be awful too (although I can’t believe he’d be worse than Obama Part Deux); but if he is he’ll get the gate in 4 years.

I think his showing at the debate is sufficient for the swinging middle to give him a shot. If we “partisans” show up too I think he makes it across the finish line.

And then, come what may, at least we’ll be rid of Barry and Michelle. And Valerie. And Eric.

Save the outrage, find a crime to charge the stupid school officials with and have them arrested. Failing that, organize msitins in front of their homes.

Pasco is in the critical I-4 coridor that cuts FL in half.

Obama is doing the “new voter” strategy.

Where is the injuction for parity?

This is a no brainer.

outrage means nothing.

then again for the first time ever I have seen a judicial FL SC retention ad. That just screams vote NO on all judges.

Leftists don’t worry about ever being shamed, because they have no moral and ethical principles that would cause them to be shamed.

Here in Michigan, our SOS went through all the voter registrations and purged thousands of dead and ineligible voters. She probably didn’t get them all but the feds wouldn’t help a bit.
