Who we elect as President doesn't have any impact on your life?
And if Ron DeSantis wants to be the next President, he needs to get his inspiration somewhere other than Donald Trump.He needs to channel the spirit of Ronald Reagan. ...Reagan won because he so clearly believed in America’s promise - and because he’d lived it, and he’d run a state that embodied it.It’s easy to forget now, but California used to be a place that people wanted to live, where taxes were reasonable and a middle-class salary could buy you a house - not on the beach, sure, but a few miles inland.California wasn’t paradise, the air was dirty and the traffic nasty and Los Angeles almost completely segregated, but the schools were decent and the economy good and it worked.—California isn’t California anymore.Florida is.And as much as anyone, DeSantis is the reason why.Three years ago, DeSantis bet his and his state’s future on his response to Covid. He did something Reagan never had the chance to do, never needed to do, he bet against government interference and for individual freedom in a visceral, personal way.You didn’t have to wear a mask in Florida if you didn’t want to. You didn’t have to stay in your house. You could choose to keep your kids home or send them to school, to keep your business open or closed. DeSantis bet against lockdowns and masks and vaccine mandates.He bet on the Constitution and the rights it promises.And he won. In the simplest, most profound way. Despite the left’s shrieking, the bodies didn’t pile up like cordwood. Three years later, the age-adjusted Covid death tolls in Florida are basically indistinguishable from other big states.Americans noticed. And they voted with their feet. California has lost 700,000 people in the last three years. More stunningly, New York City has lost almost 500,000, more than 5 percent of its residents - and a lot of them moved to Florida. (By the way, this migration shows exactly how much anyone really cares about climate change. Florida is barely above sea level and ground zero for hurricanes, but people can’t go there fast enough.)This is the record Ron DeSantis should own.During an unprecedented crisis, he stood against medical authoritarianism and government overreach (and the media) and for freedom. He believes in the Constitution and personal choice. ...But DeSantis cannot possibly win by being whiner and more self-pitying than Donald Trump, Trump has the monopoly there, and why would he want to, anyway? Why even try to be President if all you see is the American sun setting in the west, escaping to China? ...DeSantis believed in freedom enough to stand up for it in 2020 against the paper tiger that was Covid, just as Reagan stood up to the Soviet Union 40 years before. Why not stand for freedom again?Win or lose, that’s a fight worth having.
This is the record Ron DeSantis should own.
In a non-paywalled article yesterday, the New York Times ran a whiny but encouraging story headlined, “Disney District, Now Under DeSantis’s Control, Ends Its D.E.I. Programs.”Disney used to fully manage the controversial Reedy Creek district acting as its own county government. But last year, after Disney officially opposed Florida’s ban on sex education in grades K-3, arguing that very young children should learn about all the minute details of atypical and historically-abhorrent sexual practices, Florida’s legislature revoked the media giant’s long-standing sweetheart political deal, allowing the Governor to appoint a new slate of directors.Unsurprisingly, the New York Times undersold the headline. In fact, according to the press release issued by the new district governors, the DEI program will be “abolished,” along with the odious practice of using race to award contracts...Calling Disney’s DEI rules for the district “un-American,” new District Administrator Glenton Gilzean explained in the official statement that, “Our district will no longer participate in any attempt to divide us by race or advance the notion that we are not created equal.”
What he did was listen to prisoner complaints, reported them to his superiors, to have whatever the prisoners complained about intensified.
when Newsome or Whitmer or some other Democrat cleans our clocks again.
That will only happen if there is another vote steal.
In spite of being NWO front, whether inadvertently, unwillingly, or not, DeSantis did save a lot of lives by going contrarian on Covid Fraud.My neighbors rent for a month at a time at The Villages and romp around Florida once or twice a year, and they said the difference between heyday intensity of Covid fraud in California and Florida was night and day. They said it was if Covid didn't exist in Florida.
Who believes this? People who believe that DeSantis is a sEcREt globalist or something?
The Russian Army is a threat. It couldn't reasonably advance to Kiev in weeks, much less days, hasn't advanced, and has been on the defensive for a year now. If this is is how the Russian Army performs against a Client State on the periphery of Europe, one of the poorest and disunified European countries if not THE most, then we can really cut back on NATO commitments.
They are sitting in their position, killing Ukrainian soldiers. I don't expect them to advance nor retreat EXCEPT when they have difficulty killing Ukrainian soldiers.
The Russian army originally began a rapid operation to capture Kiev by a combined light inf/airborne and mech attack.
We will never return to the Ryan-Bonehead-Hasert do-nothing but tax cuts and wars GOP. I'd rather the democrats win and accelerate the pain. We had 25 years of GOP Establishment Congresses, broken only by a couple of very short Dem breaks. Yet here we have Trannies in Schools, the Dept of Ed still exists, we have a woke military, and for most of the past decade or so the GOP has rolled over for big government every time.
SAYS WHO?Our government that lied us into Iraq, Afghanistan, Libya, and Syria?
AmericanKulak says The Russian army originally began a rapid operation to capture Kiev by a combined light inf/airborne and mech attack.SAYS WHO?
Politics is downstream of culture and Trump is on the wrong end on virtually every major cultural issue right now and/or beholden to his liberal donors. Not to mention Trump's continued idiotic statements about COVID.
DeSantis wrecked himself by taking money from the Bushies, who are anti-MAGA and pro-Globaloney.
You live in Florida - right? Do you really think all of the political fights and legislative ACCOMPLISHMENTS DeSantis has won is all some big head-fake to go back to being a squish Rhino if he gets elected?
Tired of losing. Other than Trump's supreme court picks (which is huge), most of Trump's accomplishments were overturned within the first month of Biden's presidency because Trump had no patience, skills or coalition to win long term gains legislatively.
Go look up the 115th Congress and the nothing they got done. Senate, House, President - Republicans had all 3. That was deliberate.
SAYS WHO?Our government that lied us into Iraq, Afghanistan, Libya, and Syria?SAYS ME.The rest of what you say has literally nothing to do with my point, which is Russia is covering up for it's failure in the first weeks of the invasion.
I like DeSantis as governor. I was very happy with him UNTIL he refused to wait his turn AND took Bushite Wimp GOP money.
Wait his turn? Trump is not an incumbent and he is making Leftist arguments against DeSantis' successful Conservative record. When Trump is not shitting on other successful Conservative Governors who are not kissing his feet, he is giving his political enemies more ammunition for lawfare due to his lack of impulse control.
Poor Trump. The "leader" of our party couldn't even whip his own party into shape.
Because the stupid compulsively lying Neocons shithead traitor retards says "Russia is losing" that ALONE tells you the are not losing.
Personally, I think Bush money is better than Disney or Anhaeuser Bush money.
I didn't say the Russians were losing. I said their initial action was very likely a miscarry, and the claims to the contrary that it was just a fient to Kiev is RUSSIAN propaganda
That the US Deep State lies but the Syrian, Hezbollah, Russia, etc. government tells the truth most of the time and doesn't cover up failures is not accurate either.
I'm pointing out Russia isn't fucking up. Things can ALWAYS go better, but what's going is good enough.
You don't have to listen to anybody other than the Neocons. They ALWAYS lie. Whatever they claim, the opposite is true. They claim it will be a short war, it will be years. They claim they are wining, they are losing. They claim that so-and-so is Hitler, they are Hitler. They are the fucking 4th Reich.
Russia has many issues militarily. They aren't losing, but they aren't the endless Echelons of the Cold War, either.
We are beyond neocons now. The whole establishment, and the Democrat party, and the same Democrats who back their favorite South American or MENA terror group, are all on board with Ukraine.
