UPDATE 6/23/22: De Santis leads Trump in a poll this week. The really good news to be drawn is that De Santis would almost certainly enjoy the unanimous support of those backing Trump…PLUS those who could never bring themselves to vote for The Orange Outrage. Sounds like a whopping majority to these ears…and advantage De Santis.
UPDATE 6/17/22: Who is Ron to object when today’s most promising African-American emigre throws his support behind him for POTUS? Equally nice to hear Elon cast his vote for new Conservative Congresswoman star Mayra Flores.
UPDATE 5/19/22: De Santis is looking like the man we’re looking for to carry on from where Trump was stopped.
UPDATE 5/3/22: De Santis is looking better by the week. Here is a fighter for everything Trump contributed to the MAGA restoration.
UPDATE 4/29/22: De Santis is winning and winning some more and then some. Although Trump has provided MAGA’s wake-up call, it might be wiser to go with this fresh & fearless young leader. Among his outstanding gifts is an unerring instinct to go for broad essentials while masterfully handling sticky details. Already he’s leading the charge against the newly hatched nightmare known as the Government Disinformation Board. Trump has declared the war; De Santis appears to be the one capable of handling the next phase.
UPDATE 4/20/22: Intra-familial trouble ahead? A rift between Trump & De Santis? A collision of titans? One pundit puts his money on De Santis.
UPDATE 3/19/22: For all of Trump’s proven virtues, De Santis is emerging as perhaps the better, wiser choice for 2024. Whichever of the two puts BrandonWorld to permanent flight is perfectly acceptable in these quarters.
UPDATE 3/5/22: Republicans have Ron De Santis and others acting out the principles and policies that promote the best for people’s lives. The Democrats’ pickings are substantially slimmer, Tulsi Gabbard being exceptional in the Donkey ranks. Perhaps she remains positioned as a Democrat on the hunch that there are still many in that camp retaining a modicum of common sense but severely hampered by the ignorant terror of ever pulling the lever for a Republican.
UPDATE 2/25/22: A letter to Ron De Santis from one outraged but hopeful American speaks for millions of others.
UPDATE 2/2/22: De Santis runs Florida like one of the free United States while simultaneously addressing Washington’s overreach into all American lives, specifically this week about the Covideers pushing bad medicine. Yikes! Yikes!
UPDATE 1/17/22: The sane Australian media laments the absence of a DeSantis figure there as a possible way out of a future even grimmer than their present. And sane America revels in the presence of a DeSantis should Trump not run. Hope springs eternal, based on hard realism and a willingness to fight for what’s true and life-enhancing.
UPDATE 12/12/21: DeSantis is looking better by the week. Transporting illegals to both Biden and Obama’s literal doorsteps in Delaware and Martha’s Vineyard! Think they and their neighbors will mind?
What a perfect plan to expose the phony Luvvies for the NIMBY (Not In My Back Yard) hypocrites they are, the perfectly legal and rationally persuasive path to ending the illegal invasion orchestrated by the Democrats. As Thomas Lifson observes, DeSantis has Trump’s guts and drive without the sharp edges. Is it 2024 yet?
UPDATE 12/11/21: It’s heartening that the return of MAGA in 2024 is looking more and more possible, if not with Trump himself at the helm, then a fellow Floridian and proven winner as an excellent alternative.
UPDATE 12/3/21: Nice to get better acquainted with Florida’s First Lady Casey DeSantis. The Governor is looking more Presidential by the day, and she looks like she would be equally at home in the White House. Wishing her all the best in her personal fight to regain full health and in fighting for the country.
UPDATE 11/20/21: Looking more and more like the man for The Job as he demonstrates a willingness to fight back and win, equal to Trump. And for those otherwise commonsensical voters who took leave of their senses in 2020 and spurned Trump, there will be no reason now to be put off by personality.
UPDATE 11/11/21: Undoubtedly the breast cancer diagnosis of DeSantis’ wife Casey will affect his political future. One can only hope for her sake and for the political promise he holds for conservatives that her recovery is swift and complete.
UPDATE 11/11/21: Not only a proven leader but a skilled politician as well as he complements his actions with a clear statement of his philosophy. “My job is to protect your individual freedom, not corporate freedom.”
For freedom lovers, the ideal scenario would be four more years of Trump’s scorched earth style to lay permanent waste to the the uncontrolled control freaks of the Brandon regime, begin rebuilding again from the damaged foundations, making way for the luxury of the younger, calmer DeSantis style. The balanced presence of decent Democrats led by Tulsi Gabbard would be the healthy, unifying factor for all Americans.
UPDATE 11/5/21: Further endearing him to the MAGA base, DeSantis referred to the PINO Mafia as “the Brandon administration.” How better to maintain one’s decorum in referencing this nightmare without coming off as anything less than refined?
UPDATE 10/17/21: The only believable campaign promise worth listening to is that backed up by action, not hot air. DeSantis’ Columbus Day proclamation and attendant stance on the whole Cancel Culture surrounding it justifiably brings him one step closer to the Presidency within the next 7 years.
UPDATE 9/24/21: DeSantis is now not merely politicking but living and breathing the role of an American leader. He appears to be the one willing and able to help us reclaim our basic freedoms and way of life.
UPDATE 9/12/21: As our cultural and political war escalates, DeSantis continues to hold firm on a platform of liberty. Still our best hope if we have really entered a post-Trump era.
UPDATE 8/11/21: DeSantis, yes! His “doesn’t care” attitude is a healthy part of his republican (lower case) values: freedom of the individual as is only possible through free speech (and the rest of the Bill of Rights), free markets, small government, low taxes…..Trump has been and remains a blast of fresh energy and inspiration, but maybe we don’t have time to wait until 2028 for the younger DeSantis to take the reins.
UPDATE 7/17/21: DeSantis: better than ever, and getting better still. Not only cutting taxes and relaxing regulation for business but expanding the idea and practice of charter schools, fighting Big Tech censorship…among many other policies for an American future totally informed by the concept of freedom tempered by responsibility. Using Florida as his energized idea lab, he is laying out an unbeatable argument for, at the very least, a Vice-President DeSantis in 2024 and a President DeSantis in 2028.
UPDATE 6/24/21: His record during Covid was exemplary and his recent solid stances on education, restoring patriotism to our schools, make DeSantis MAGA’s future after Trump. His role can be either a strong backup for Trump or, better for the long term, the purveyor of the next step in restoring/re-establishing America’s proven possibilities to all Americans. Whichever, DeSantis is a blessing and reason for realistic hope.
UPDATE 6/17/21:Will Trump head the ticket with DeSantis his running mate? Or will it be DeSantis’ ticket? Both are happy prospects.
6/9/21: Judging by a very young crowd’s response to his appearance at the largest concert gathering in the country since the lockdowns, Ron DeSantis is a MAGA-star!
UPDATE 5/24/21: Based on his eminently sane approach to Covid hysteria, Florida Governor Ron DeSantis continues his rise as the model conservative candidate for 2024 if POTUSDJT decides to step aside. Protect the vulnerable, let healthy life go on. Sounds like America, does it not?
Admittedly, freedom as fundamental is anathema to a certain U.S. political Party (and its blind sheepish following) that functions entirely on perpetual fear and conflict to control the masses. How else to effect “fundamental transformation” without the chaos that has suddenly arisen on all fronts since the illegitimate installation of the Hologram Puppet and his Masters?
ORIGINAL POST 4/17/21: As the governor of Florida putting Americans and their liberties before all else during the CoronaCraze, Ron DeSantis stood alone and currently stands alone as the most likely candidate to return us to the MAGA track in 2024. Naturally, he has become a prime target of censorship and political destruction.
