Calling out every Amendment on the FL ballot this November.

The most important thing in this election is to get everyone to vote no on everything.

Neither good intentions nor true desire for voter input placed the 11 state constitutional amendments on a crowded ballot headlined by a presidential election.

One clue: misleading and confusing language.

The overwhelmingly Republican Florida Legislature drafted them knowing that long lines at the polls are more likely to discourage working-class people from voting, among them women and minorities unable to take large chunks of time off.

In Miami-Dade, the ballot is 12 pages long; in Broward, eight pages front and back, except in Pembroke Pines where its nine.

1. We (Patrick Murphy campaign) have been pushing voting by mail.

2. I just studied the ballot and I concur: Vote for all the Democrats and "NO" to all the amendments.

What could be easier? I don't even have to write it down!
