    Well said. It's pretty easy to bash a place when you're 3500 miles away from it.

    Big "What if" if Andrew Gillum beat DeSantis back in 2018. He certainly was a "rising star".

    DeSantis became immensely popular in the state and strengthened Florida as a GOP stronghold, while Gillum OD's on meth and was found naked in a motel room with hookers.

    Yes I read the article, the irony is not lost on me. I find it more than amusing that this state Senator is attempting to 'cancel' any party that previously supported slavery, while simultaneously being affiliated with the party that supports banning the teaching of slavery in his state. You're twisting in the wind attempting to provide cover for this FAMS.

    To get at DeSantis, she's encouraging people leaving negative reviews on Amazon for his book......

    Yeah I am not convinced she is the right person to lead the Dems, in fact I would go out on a limb and say she is flat out almost certainly the wrong person. The party needs new leadership down there, I live in Oregon, not anywhere near close enough, and I am white, so pretty much exactly the wrong person you want to be making these decisions... but it seems pretty obvious even from here. The only thing she has going for her is that she is a woman, but unfortunately she is old, and white, so yeah almost certainly the wrong person to lead the party down there.

    What does you being white have anything to do about being the wrong kind of person making decisions on who can lead the democratic party in Florida?

    Why does it matter she's a woman? Or that her being white is a bad thing. Or that her being "old" is a bad thing (she's 45 years old by the way).

    I visited Florida when I was about 9 years old when my uncle and aunt lived in Key West.....it was cool in the early 60s and probably still is but that has nothing to do with the new Florida and the anti civil rights govt that is entrenced there....I was in Nicaragua when it was nice too...today...not so nice.

    Who cares, just go to the tourist areas, pretend its Mexico. Like I would give a fuck for any of the cookie cutter suburban hell that's out there in Florida. I'd imagine most of the state is trailer trash and swamp hicks, just go to the parts that aren't.

    They did have great beaches and warm water, you really can't swim much in the Pacific Ocean in California, its way too cold/polluted.

    Because the Democratic party is becoming younger, and more diverse. If I want to go into politics in Florida, I would have to register as a Republican, which I am not. Look at what happened with Joe Crowley and AOC, he was an old white dude who held that seat for like 30 years, and was beat by a young woman of color. Pretty much was a microcosm of the current state of the Democratic zeitgeist.

    I care where I invest my expendable income....I've never been a 'tourist" in my travels..whatever floats your boat bro...you're welcome to it. I know lots of warm places to swim without going to Florida..I'd fly to Phuket long before I'd go to Florida

    No intention of driving 3000 miles with or without Lucia.
