Dutch, I see where you think Florida is run by a batch of idiots. I cannot argue with you based on your knowledge of your political leaders, BUT at least your state voted Democratically. On the other hand, my state (I am a transplant here as well) always has and will vote Republican. At least you have that one advantage. All my friends and my wife's friends are staunch Republicans. We get together with 2 other couples every weekend, rotating who hosts the gathering, and rarely
talk politics. I remember the last time we did. It was after I had my last pacemaker transplant, and my comments to the others involved how fortunate I was to have Obama Care, because no one else would insure me after I retired. What an argument that started, so as I said, we don't talk politics anymore. At least you can probably find some friends who are of the same persuasion politically as you are. I have lived here over 21 years and finished my working career here, so all the people I met here were either through my job, my daily experiences, and I even met my wife here. It just so happened that my politics were "no big deal" to me in those earlier years, and everyone I met just happened to be Republican. I sure am staying here because my wife's family is here and I just couldn't ask her to leave them. Most of the time it is not too bad, so I can deal with it.
Getting back to your thoughts on Florida being run by idiots, surely they are no worse than those running Mississippi. Look what Gov. Bryant is saying on the local news (no national exposure yet) about how his intent is to not follow ANY Federal laws that Obama gets through Congress, that make even one change in gun laws. How idiotic is that? I am no lawyer, but I would think that it approaches the crime of treason.
