Florida governor Charlie Crist must be commended for cleaning up the mess left by his predecessor in the voting mess.
His signing of a new bill banning touchscreen voting machines for those with a paper trail is especially forthright.
"There is no greater testament to our nation's democracy than the people's ability to choose their leaders," Crist said in a statement after signing the bill. "When Floridians cast ballots in an election at any level -- local, state or federal -- they can leave the polling place knowing that their vote has been counted and recorded and can be verified," he stated.
If you have never lived in a country where a military coup has taken away your right to vote, you cannot understand the benefit of voting.
Props to you, Governor Crist.
