Ron DeSantis

Who should the Republican candidate for president be in 2024?

I have a candidate in mind for Republican nominee for president in 2024. His name is Ron DeSantis, and he’s doing an amazing job as governor of purple-state Florida.  I thought it might be a good idea for us all to learn a little something about him. His policies are quite tough, but he has a more mature attitude than Trump.

He was in the news this week for these comments about Joe Biden:

“So I think the question is, we can either have a free society, or we can have a biomedical security state,” DeSantis said. “And I can tell you, Florida, we’re a free state, people are going to be free to choose, to make their own decisions about themselves, about their families, about their kid’s education, and about putting food on the table.”

“And Joe Biden suggests that if you don’t do lockdown policies, then you should quote, ‘get out of the way,’” DeSantis continued. “But let me tell you this, if you’re coming after the rights of parents in Florida, I’m standing in your way, I’m not going to let you get away with it.”

“If you’re trying to deny kids a proper in person education, I’m gonna stand in your way and I’m gonna stand up for the kids in Florida,” DeSantis continued. “If you’re trying to restrict people, impose mandates, if you’re trying to ruin their jobs and their livelihoods and their small business, if you are trying to lock people down, I am standing in your way and I’m standing for the people of Florida.”

“So why don’t you do your job? Why don’t you get this border secure?” DeSantis added. “And until you do that, I don’t want to hear a blip about COVID from you. Thank you.”

He was in the news for taking on the education bureaucrats, too:

Broward County Public Schools has changed its masking policy after Republican Florida Governor Ron DeSantis released an executive order giving parents the power to decide whether their children should wear masks at school.

[…]As The Daily Wire previously reported, “Florida Governor Ron DeSantis (R) signed an executive order late this week that allows parents to make the choice of whether they want to have their children wear masks in school, which comes in response to the Biden administration making new recommendations through the CDC about wearing masks in school.”

The executive order makes sure that local school boards “do not violate Floridians’ constitutional freedoms,” “do not violate parents’ right under Florida law to make health care decisions for their minor children,” and ensures that “children with disabilities or health conditions who would be harmed by certain protocols such as face masking requirements” are protected.

I don’t like words. I like actions.

Here’s Governor DeSantis’ biography:

Governor Ron DeSantis is the former U.S. Representative for Florida’s Sixth District.

A native Floridian with blue-collar roots, Ron worked his way through Yale University, where he graduated with honors and was the captain of the varsity baseball team. He also graduated with honors from Harvard Law School. While at Harvard, he earned a commission in the U.S. Navy as a JAG officer. During his active-duty service, he supported operations at the terrorist detention center at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba and deployed to Iraq as an adviser to a U.S. Navy SEAL commander in support of the SEAL mission in Fallujah, Ramadi and the rest of Al Anbar province.  His military decorations include the Bronze Star Medal for Meritorious Service and the Iraq Campaign Medal.

After active-duty service, Ron served as a federal prosecutor, where he targeted and convicted child predators.  He was first elected to Congress in 2012, where he fought for term limits, the No Budget/No Pay Act, and to cut taxes.  While serving in Congress, Ron refused his Congressional pension and health insurance plan because he is against special deals for politicians.  He also sponsored legislation to make it easier for the military to prosecute sexual assault and authored the bill to end the secret taxpayer-funded slush fund for members of Congress to make hush payoffs for sexual harassment.

Ron is married to Casey DeSantis, an Emmy Award winning television host. Together, they’re the proud parents of their daughters, Madison and Mamie, and their son, Mason.

Look for him in 2024. I really hope that conservative parents are making more like him.

  1. Unless the GOP fixes and corrects 2020, I am out of the political game because the majority of the GOP are NOT Patriots like Trump, DeSantis, and MTG but are just another arm of the Dimm Party. Therefore, voting GOP is now LITERALLY votting Dimm, except in a very few cases like DeSantis, MTG, Trump, etc.

    And the Dimms will merely continue to cheat if they are not held accountable and the rightful President is not returned to the White House. (Most of the election fraud audits are just GOP show for 2022 and 2024. There is no intention of righting the wrongs of 2020, which goes to show you where the GOP is on the concept of “justice.” They were in on the fix too, as has now been proven in AZ and GA and is about to be proven in the other battleground states that Trump won.)

    Therefore, it should be apparent that we are now in a banana republic of Marxism run by the monoparty of Dimms-RINOs. This monoparty MIGHT allow the election of another GOP person but never another Trump – whatever GOP is elected will be sold out to the Deep State and RINOs. If DeSantis IS elected, you can be certain that he had to compromise his principles in order to get into the club.

    That said, I do think that DeSantis missed a great opportunity to point out the hypocrisy of the most pro-abortion administration in history pretending to “care about lives” in their COVID squealing.

      1. Lolol! You’ve already lost – you just don’t know it yet.

        I’m quite certain I’ve “won” (rescued) more real lives from the murder mills than the Pro-Lie Movement has saved imaginary ones in their regulation of child murder, which has not saved a single life but has given them cause to pat themselves on the backs, receive millions in donations, and garner votes from the gullible. “Winning” in their minds is “only” 65 million dead, I suppose.

        As for the slight towards abolitionists, I’ll be happy to pass that on to Harriet Tubman, William Still, Frederick Douglass, William Wilberforce, and Thomas Garrett when I get to meet them. I’m sure it will be good for a laugh. They had such a “high” view of compromisers, including Lincoln at times.

  2. Floridians are split on losing a fantastic governor to who knows what kind of replacement. Long ago, the Who he ran against was a real train wreck.

  3. We Floridians are split on this…we hate to lose him, but he is probably more needed as President to push back the tide of Marxism!

  4. I am a little concerned that Desantis may be too good to be true, and is posturing himself to become president, after which he will show his true colors. My concern is based upon his actions after the Parkland high school shooting where he signed restrictive gun laws, most notably a red flag law. I don’t know if that is a result of him not being a strong supporter of 2A rights, or if he folded to public pressure, but neither reason sits well with me.
