Flat state logic.

This is how bullies act. Pay attention. This knob is bucking to be L'Orange Fascist's #2 in 2024. Ruling through fear and intimidation worked--for a while--in 1930's Germany.

Hey all you Jews, Muslims and dark-skinned folk: you're next, and it will not be as subtle as Death Sentence and his ilk are acting now...

DeSantis has more faith in Trump's re-election than I do.

This is what fascism looks like.

""Governor DeSantis will continue fighting for Floridians' right to contract COVID and die and the Florida Department of Health will continue to enforce the law."

BTW, Leon County is probably a thorn in Death Santis's side because it is home to Tallahassee and the State Capital. I tried living in that racist hell hole years ago, no thank you! Yes they do have FSU which does help to mitigate the backward racist population but those folks aren't permanent residents, Tallahassee is still a deep south, racist city out of the 1950s. You couldn't pay me enough to live there.

While technically, Ron DeSantis could run as Trump's VP in 2024, it's likely that he won't. There's a little known clause in the 12th Amendment which requires that the electors have to actually vote for BOTH the President and the VP, but this clause says that a state's electors can only vote for a single individual from their particular state. So if DeSantis was to run as the VP and the ticket won by a small margin, Florida's electoral votes would only go to Trump and if the margin of victory was less than the number of Florida's electoral votes, the person getting the next highest number would be the VP. In other words, Trump could have a Democrat as his VP.

I think Trump is too old and even he knows it, I'd expect him to annoint his successor which will probably be Death Santis. Death may have little choice if he wants to cotiue i politics because it is certainly not a given that he could defeat Charlie Crist for Gov. Little remembered fact, that was why Pence got the VP slot in 2018, he was way behind in the polls for Gov. of Indiana so he need to fail upwards which he did.

Hey feds, if you're listening, take that $3.57 M out of other funds flowing to FL and send it directly to Leon County.
