Wouldn’t it be amazing to be governed by someone worthy of the word leader?
As it is, we are treated like sheep by those who have not the slightest inclination that they report to We the People and not the other way around.

Florida Governor Ron DeSantis delivered a statement about the future of Florida today while visiting Cape Coral on the Southwest coast.
During his remarks the governor highlighted his support for parent’s rights, taking the position that parents should be the ones making decisions for their children on masks, schools and vaccines, not government.
Governor DeSantis promised Florida residents there will be no lock downs, no mandates, no restrictions and no school closures.
Additionally, the governor urged all local communities to follow common sense science and said he will soon issue an order allowing parents or guardians to choose whether their child wears a mask in schools.
“As of today, very few [school districts] are requiring it. Nevertheless, we have a lot of push from the CDC and others to make every single person, kids and staff have to wear masks all day,” DeSantis said during the event. “That would be a huge mistake.”
.The Florida Education Association (FEA), the largest teacher union in the state, said they will fight the Florida governor on all measures.
The teachers union is considering not going back to work with in-person teaching, and has vowed not to give up control of the (k-12) children to the parents. [Nice of them]
“Governor DeSantis continues to think that Tallahassee knows best what all Floridians need,” FEA President Andrew Spar said in a statement.
“We reject that kind of thinking” Spar continued.
“Instead, we ask Governor DeSantis to allow all Florida’s citizens to have a voice by empowering the elected leaders of cities, counties and school districts to make health and safety decisions locally based on their unique needs and circumstances,”
Spar said. Emphasizing how the union feels they have more power in the blue and leftist urban areas and they have vowed to fight any conservative effort in the state to undermine the teachers financial interests and control over Florida students.
