Why Do They Hate Democracy?

 [via LG&M]
An estimated 200,000 votes were not cast in Florida due to absurdly long wait times.

Even if the estimate is off by a factor of ten, that's 20,000 people who were effectively disenfranchised for no discernible or defensible reason, due at least in part to the Republican state government. But remember, the Republicans love freedom and America, and the Democrats are the Fascist America-haters.

That said, the worst county, per the article, is majority-Republican. Of course, I don't actually care, I just want people to be able to vote easily, regardless of party. Why we do not have a National holiday for voting is incomprehensible to me.
