How many Americans are jealous that they don’t have a governor like Ron DeSantis leading their state?

You can bet there’re MILLIONS who live in Blue-led states that would trade their whole government for DeSantis in heartbeat…

But as a Floridian, I say to you guys, “no chance!”

FreedomWire is lucky enough to be headquartered in the Sunshine State and I can assure you, my colleagues all feel the same way.

Ron DeSantis (or “Ronny D,” as we call him) has done an INCREDIBLE job as the governor of our state.

Unlike many other governors, Ronny D has kept his word, and stuck with the timeframes he gave for pandemic lockdowns…which means that Florida has been open a lot longer than most other states.

The funny thing is, while Florida is one of the biggest and most densely populated states (third only behind California and Texas), when it comes to COVID numbers, Florida is closer to the bottom of the list in deaths per capita.

That’s because DeSantis LISTENED to his experts, and Floridians were both happier and healthier for it.

Other states haven’t been as lucky.

Michigan, California, New York, Pennsylvania, and more have been locked down longer and under more stringent supervision than many other states, and the citizens who have lost their livelihoods and way of life are getting sick of it…

That’s why they’re pulling up stakes and finding greener pastures in Red states like Florida, Texas, and Arizona.

Welcome To Florida, But…

As a Floridian, I say “Welcome! Enjoy your new home…but…”

There’s always a “but,” right?

“Enjoy your new home… but don’t vote for the same Liberal BS here as you did in the state you fled. Don’t ‘New York’ our Florida.”

This is a sentiment held by every Floridian that loves their state…and our governor is echoing those same thoughts.

After signing an anti-rioting bill into law last week, DeSantis made a few statements that those coming from Blue states should heed.

In a speech discussing the new rioting laws, specifically the lack of respect for law enforcement officers in many Blue states, DeSantis said, “Hey, if you’re in Portland, you think you can come down to Florida and do this? Stay out of our state. We don’t want you coming down here causing problems.”

By the way, the VAST majority of Floridians agree with Big Ron.

“And if anyone does cause these problems, if you try to burn something down, if you try to harm anybody – but particularly a police officer – during one of these violent assemblies, there will be consequences,” he warned. “They will be swift, they will be severe, and they will be such that people that see that happen will know that that’s not something we want to do going forward.”

Watch the statement here:

If I could insert an audible slow clap into this article, I would…

But that technology isn’t at our disposal right now.

DeSantis cares about Florida’s law enforcement officers because he knows they’re the key to keeping Floridians safe.

So, while many Democrat-led cities and states are talking about (and worse, following through on) defunding their police departments, Ron DeSantis rewarding Florida cops with bonuses for a job well done.

He said, “Supporting our law enforcement and first responders has been a top priority for my administration, and it has never been more important than over the last year. As a state, we are grateful for their continued service to our communities. This one-time bonus is a small token of appreciation, but we can never go far enough to express our gratitude for their selflessness.”

He’s absolutely right.

Florida is becoming a TOP relocation destination—so much so that it’s gained another seat in Congress—and Ronny D plans to keep that way.

Thanks, Ron, for being a man of honor and courage.

You’ve helped Florida do more than just survive the pandemic. We’ve thrived, and a lot of that success comes down to your leadership.

Oh…

And thank God Andrew Gillum lost. What a nightmare we’d be enduring right now under that guy.
