It would be nice to say the least if the gay community in the south (Florida) stopped being so apathetic and voted in EVERY election ESP state.

Most from my experience do not even vote and those that do it seems it is only for presidential elections.

By not voting you only enable those like Rick Scott to get elected .

Sadly, I must agree. I have friends who retired an moved to Fla. They live in a condo area which they claim is 80% gay. And I would believe it based on the parties they throw when I go to visit. Most who are willing to discuss politics, which is few, have told me they don't bother to vote. They are all well-heeled and think only of their comfort, their investments, their parties, and their cruises. I used to visit twice a year, but now I only visit about once every two years, and then only for a couple of days. Having been away from them for some time, I see them more clearly now as selfish, self-absorbed old people, waiting to die. I can't say that about all GLBTs in Fla., but if these whom I do know are any indication, I'll stay in MO.

You ever here the "joke" -

How can you break up a gay party in Florida?

Ask them if they want to register to vote.

I would guess 30 out of 100 vote once every 4 yrs and 10 out of 100 in state elections if that many.
I no longer give a damn about the gay community in this state as just the most non political bunch I can think of.
I have my own "circle" of friends who I talk politics with but no longer bother chatting politics at parties,etc with adults who complain but refuse to vote.

The ONLY mostly Dem group in this state which is not apathetic ,self defeating and realizes what voting in EVERY election is all about is the Jewish American vote whether "Yankee" or native Floridian..

May one thousand drag queens tie gold lame scarves around their throats and choke them to death.

What a bunch of lousy hypocites!
