In a democracy, public office servants are elected by vote of The People, but not anymore in Florida, and in many other states in the nation. I believe that this fosters unaccountability in our public servants, and is another important factor in the present corruption of our government. In a great number of cases, public offices go unchallenged, so public servants get elected without a single vote for or against them. Some examples include:
*63% (12/19) of State Attorneys were elected without a vote.
*68% (13/19) of Public Defenders were elected without a vote.
*45% (18/40) of State Senators about to be elected without a vote.
*68% (13/19) of Circuit Judges in Miami-Dade county, and up to 100% in other counties were elected without a vote.
Add to this undemocratic practice, the rampant violation from lawyers of the checks and balances demanded by the founders of our Constitution, and we have a recipe for disaster: http://www.votefamily.us/the-root-cause/
