Gov. DeSantis: Florida Is An Oasis Of Freedom
Gov. Ron DeSantis proclaimed Florida an “oasis of freedom” from coronavirus restrictions Friday as he kicked off the 2021 Conservative Political Action Conference in Orlando that saw violations of a local mandatory mask rule.
“We are an oasis of freedom in a nation that’s suffering in many parts of the country under the yoke of oppressive lockdowns,” DeSantis said.
“We see schools closed, businesses shuttered, and lives destroyed,” he said.
“And while so many governors over the last year had kept locking people down, Florida lifted people up,” DeSantis said to cheers.
He argued the state is stronger and residents are “happier” because of the strategy.
“Florida got it right and the lockdown states got it wrong,” DeSantis declared, repeating his message of personal liberty that has dominated since the viral pandemic began.
The governor is seeking to restore integrity to the election process by increasing transparency and oversight during ballot-counting, and increasing security for absentee ballots.
DeSantis indicated a new Republican Party is here to stay.
“We don’t spout hollow rhetoric. We take decisive action,” he said.
“We cannot, we will not go back to the days of the failed Republican establishment of yesteryear,” he said, prompting wild cheers from the crowd.DeSantis memorialized Rush Limbaugh.
“Rush showed that fighting the left requires strength and that conservatism devoid of backbone is doomed to fail,” he said.If you like the content we share please feel free to subscribe to our newsletter. This story was shared from The Tatum Report.
