A vote for Wyllie is a vote for Crist. Stay the course. You may not like Scott but his policies are friendlier to our cause than anything Crist will promote. Ol' Chuckie-boy has proven time and again he will say anything, strike any pose, stand on any soap box as long as it means getting elected.

Well said Diggin, At least you know where Gov. Scott stands. He is the better choice for the people who pay taxes!

Me Too, I think he's done a good job. I liked Charlie, but seems wishy washy and will say whatever to get votes!

As a state worker I can honestly say skeletor won't get my vote and I haven't met any other state,county ,or other municipality worker who's going to vote for him either.

This is not an attack on you nor a reflection of who you are as a person but you most likely will neither agree with or like what I'm about to say. One of the basic premises of the Left is Big Government but the reason goes beyond a belief that the public sector can do the job better than the private sector. In contrast, the Right is against Big Government because the belief is that the private sector can do the job better than the public sector. Sure, there are certain functions that must remain a part of government and there's no argument there. But, every single government worker gets their check from the people they vote into office. So, who do you think any and nearly all government workers are going to vote for? The guy promising fiscal responsibility and elimination of government waste or the guy who is going to hand out pensions and raises like it was ice cream cones? And to what detriment to the liberal politician? He achieves his party's goal and gets elected and really doesn't have to concern himself on how he plans to pay for all those ice cream cones. He'll just raise taxes.

Diggin, you almost got it. The left IS big government. The right is also big government, they just want to spend it differently

I've worked in both the private and the public. And if the jobs are taken from the public and given to the public or vice versa is really no concern to me but as a state worker one of the candidates was good for us and the other wasn't. What exactly has Scott done to help florida? Not really sure what you mean by handing out pensions either. As of now it takes 8 years of service to become vested in FRS.

Rick Scott has done a good job, in my opinion. He'll get my vote, again, and did in the primary. I would take him over my current president in a heartbeat. At least he can make decisions.

What has Scott done for Florida? How about the first budget surplus in 6 years in 2013 and reducing the outstanding state debt since 2011 when he took office? :scratch: I understand you will vote for who best serves you but you asked what he did for the STATE. Money talks, BS walks.

The very people I voted for thru me under the bus to a big lobby interest. They would do the same again. This does not mean I will not vote for my party, I will vote more informed this year. If Wyllie checks out I will vote for him, we will never have more choices if we don't try.

Crist is a lawyer and when he was governor he was a republican, then turned independent then turned democratic party, who knows what he will do if elected. Private sector always can outperform the public work force the list of jobs that used to be done by the government and now those services are provided by the private sector is growing heck just read the paper and today our government gave the contract to private companies to fly our astronauts to the space station. then at the other end we have the roads mowed by private companies where 30 years it was done by the state.

Now if we just shut down US Postal Service that would save us billions of dollars, they lost 2 billion in the last 3 months and 27 billion sense 2011. UPS or Fed X could do it cheaper and save us money

Heck got to be in the army for 20 years to be vested so what is the big deal about 8 years for state worker for retirement. Bloated outdate government is what we have state & fed's.

Crist just runs his mouth about what Scott has done stay's clear of his own record because most would not like that he supports same sex marriage well at least today until he changes his mind again like abortion, search the public record for his voting record and you see the real Crist.

Sorry for the rant but dang he supports Obama and that crap is never going to fly with me.........................................

I would never compare getting a pension in the army vs public sector. And that's bs about the private sector out performing the public. Because the same individuals can work in either the public or private. In the public sector it's not about production it's about maintaining and ensuring it works when needed. In the private it's about going as fast as you can go and still make it work so you can get a better profit. If my public job job gets privatized then I'll have to go work for them most likely for lower wages, crappy insurance and prob no retirement. Been there done that. I'm not a liberal nor a democrat but I'm gonna vote for the one that's best for florida and my family.

I will be vague not wanting to bring up another subject to debate. I worked with people, companies, and originations about keeping 20 year plus laws in place. These business laws do not have anything to do with the airboat community. If I come south and see you at a show or on the water I would be glad to tell you over a beer.

Scott trimmed the devil out of SFWMD which was overdue but then got scared by a bunch of enviro freek push back and slowed down trimming government from what I've seen and greened up a good bit.

Now if Scott can get a second term it may give him a chance to do more house cleaning.

Can't stand Crist due to his flip floppin". Actually thought he was a good official many years ago but no more.

And thus the origins of the phrase "Looks like a government job. Three people watching, two looking like they're ready to work and one actually doing something." The government is the very essence of inefficiency. Nobody tries because they know they'll never get fired. And don't even get me started about government unions.
