    This is considered "South Florida,"  The "I-4 Corridor"  which is actually a more progressive part of the state - Hillsborough County.

      in a sea of deep red.  They have done everything to germander my city so that we will never see anything but a Republican elected to the House.  My current Rep. is tea bagger, Steve Southerland.  It is like my vote never counts.

      I agree that Florida has become more regressive over the years.  A guy like Bob Graham could never be elected to statewide office today.

      Florida's new voting laws now prevent third party voter registrations by making the submission criteria so onerous that the League of Women Voters refuses to conduct third registration drives in Florida.  NY may be corrupt, but it is not third world.  Florida is rapidly leading the race to the bottom to become a banana republic, starting with our education system.

        Or perhaps the climate?

      all the "low lifes" are moving north to my county.  I'm about fed up with it.  What was a really quiet, nice, friendly community has been ruined mostly because of the housing debacle.  We now have a lot of rentals owned by people OUT of the county that will rent to the first person to come along that has money.  I have that problem with the house on my left.  The one on the right is great and we have been fighting together over the house on my left.  We're trying to find a way to hold the owners responsible for the actions of their renters.  Of course most of them only stay about 6 mos.  Right now they have in my opinion the worst of the worst that have lived there.  I've even had child protected services call me about the 15 yr. boy.  UGH

      •  PS we don't seem to have much of a segregation.. (0+ / 0-)

        issue though.  We have several mixed couples and there seems to be no problem with that.  I've talked to one of the couples about it, I know the gal because we go to the same doctor.  Of course on the other hand it was predominently white when I moved in, it's now becoming more diverse thank god.
