Florida Governor Wants ‘Special Police Force’ to Monitor Elections
In a move voting rights advocates fear would be used to “intimidate voters” if it became law, Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis announced a plan to establish a - first of its kind in the US - “special police force” called the “Office of Election Crimes and Security,” to oversee elections within the state of Florida. This special force would be stationed at unspecified “field offices throughout the state” and act on tips from “government officials or any other person.”
Wait, Trump’s “Mini-Me” wants to do what? That said, I do get where Gov. DeSantis is coming from on this. After all, in those 2020 elections, too many “eligible” voters were able to cast votes for Democrats, and Republicans vow “not to let that s**t happen again.” Why, how can it be considered a “fair” election, if Democrats are allowed to vote too? And, let’s not forget all those pesky minorities, who also insist on voting.
Besides, what’s the big deal? Gov. DeSantis doesn’t have a problem with people voting. Why, just as long as you’re a “retired, elderly, white person” - you should be good to go. Look, I realize some folks are gonna criticize this move, but you have to realize that all Gov. DeSantis is really trying to do - is simply make sure people vote “correctly.” Is that too much to ask? And, if you vote incorrectly, it isn’t like someone’s gonna kill you. They’ll just send you off to a special “Reeducation Camp” somewhere in the Everglades, to teach you how to vote “right.”
And, there’s a good reason for that. Why, allow those “libtards” to vote, and the next thing you know, they’ll not only be voting for some Democrat, they’ll also be marrying someone of the same sex, collecting welfare payments, and aborting unborn fetuses - all right there in the voting booth! Of course, some may ask “why create a task force to address a problem that doesn’t even exist?” Well, the way Gov. DeSantis sees it, Florida has a big problem - and it’s called “voting.” What’s next for Florida you ask? Why, how about a state-sanctioned religion?

I do not see a problem, no one should be able to vote anyway. Why would anyone want to do that? It is more than evident that if we want the country to degrade into the shit hole these people should be able to do whatever they want, after all they are the smartest people on the planet.
#DeathSantis like any good member of the new #GQP Party KNOWS they can't win elections on policy, so all they have left is voter suppression and a change in election laws.
“Again and again, at every opportunity he [James McGill Buchanan] had, he told his allies that no “mere changing of the political guard will suffice,” that “the problems of our times require attention to the rules rather than the rulers.” And that meant that real change would come “only by Constitutional law.” The project must aim toward the practical “removal of the sacrosanct status assigned to majority rule.”"
