Florida Governor is DONE with Dr. Fauci and the rest of Joe Biden's administration when it comes to COVID restrictions and lockdowns. He declared on Wednesday that Florida will NEVER "live in a Faucian dystopia."
“I think it’s very important that we say unequivocally no to lockdowns, no to school closures, no to restrictions and no to mandates,” DeSantis declared while speaking to the American Legislative Exchange Council (ALEC).
“Floridians are free to choose — and all Americans should be free to choose — how they govern their affairs, how they take care of themselves and our families, and they should not be consigned to live — regardless of which state in the union — consigned to live in a Faucian dystopia in which we’re governed by the whims of bureaucratic authorities who care little for our freedom, little for our aspirations and little for our happiness,” he continued. “No more. We can’t let it happen going forward.”
Two days later, DeSantis followed up by announcing an executive order that would ban Florida public schools from requiring children to wear masks and clarifying that power over such decisions is reserved for parents.
DeSantis has garnered high marks from conservatives over the past year for his handling of COVID-19, which was defined by resisting the lockdowns of other states and focusing on the protection of Florida’s elderly population, leading even the left-wing Associated Press to eventually admit that California’s far more restrictive policies didn’t save more lives than Florida’s targeted approach, and Democrats to try to explain away the state’s COVID statistics by falsely accusing the DeSantis administration of manipulating the numbers.
Throughout the pandemic, DeSantis has defended the rights and choices of Floridians from lockdown advocates, including standing against school closings, vaccine passports, mask mandates, and local lockdowns; pardoning Floridians who have violated local restrictions, suing the Biden administration over its ban on the cruise ship industry, and quickly embracing hydroxychloroquine.
That, combined with his proactive conservative record as governor, has made DeSantis a top contender for the GOP’s 2024 presidential nomination in the minds of many conservatives.
DeSantis is the GOAT. He truly makes me want to move back to Florida just so he can be my governor.
