His business common sense, along with his 'family and children first' agenda, has already made a substantial positive impact in Florida that is being felt throughout our great country.

FLORIDA CHOSE FREEDOM OVER FAUCISM.

Here is a list of a few of Ron DeSantis' more recent accomplishments as Governor or Florida: 

Big Tech: Taking aim at social media giants, the Legislature approved penalties if elected officials are banned from Twitter, Facebook or other platforms. The fines range from $100,000 to $250,000 per day for statewide candidates and up to $25,000 per day for other candidates.

"Anti-rioting" law: The Legislature imposed harsher penalties for already illegal acts committed during a riot. State officials would be able to overturn police budget cuts made by local leaders. Critics worry a "mob intimidation" statute could lead to the arrest of peaceful protesters caught up in a riot.

Elections: Florida passed a scaled-back election bill that doesn't go as far as Georgia in restricting mail voting. Voters will have to request mail ballots every year instead of every two years, after the 2022 election. It also includes new regulations on drop boxes, requiring they be monitored in person. The proposal specifies that a person can possess only the ballots of close relatives and no more than two nonrelatives, an effort to crack down on what has been called "ballot harvesting."

Vaccine passports: Lawmakers added DeSantis' executive order banning vaccine passports into law.

Governor DeSantis' mission to rebalance the scales toward equal opportunity, freedom and justice for all continues as he announces a bill to ban "Critical Race Theory" in all schools.

 "Amendment Banning Critical Race Theory in Schools Officially Adopted After Push from DeSantis"

"The Florida Board of Education approved a new rule on Thursday supported by Republican Gov. Ron DeSantis that effectively bans critical race theory in K-12 public education.

"The woke class wants to teach kids to hate each other, rather than teaching them how to read, but we will not let them bring nonsense ideology into Florida's schools," DeSantis said in a news release on Thursday.

"As the Governor of Florida, I love this state, and I love my country. I find it unthinkable that there are other people in positions of leadership in the federal government who believe that we should teach kids to hate our country. We will not stand for it here in Florida.

"I'm proud that we are taking action today to ensure our state continues to have the greatest educational system in the nation," DeSantis added.

"His full remarks were delivered to the Florida Board of Education prior to its vote.

According to the new rule, "Instruction on the required topics must be factual and objective, and may not suppress or distort significant historical events, such as the Holocaust, and may not define American history as something other than the creation of a new nation based largely on universal principles stated in the Declaration of Independence."
