WASHINGTON, DC, Jan 27 — Americans continue to relocate to Florida in record numbers. The sun and fun of the sunshine state has a lot to do with it but don’t discount the attraction of the state’s governor, Ron DeSantis. He’s just as popular across the country as he is in his own state. Governor DeSantis was the pick for the Association of Mature American Citizens’ 2022 Man of the Year for the majority of the voters of its 2.4 million members, according to AMAC’s CEO Rebecca Weber.
“Once again they showed their preference for leaders who stand up for America’s Constitutional ideals,” Weber said. “He is a huge proponent of election integrity. He signed legislation into law in 2022 that establishes an Office of Election Crimes and Security within the Florida Department of State. He is a dedicated proponent of ID requirements for absentee vote-by-mail ballots. He signed a sweeping voting bill establishing a new election police force and created harsher penalties for ballot harvesting and instituted deterrences to non-citizen voting.”
One Man-of-the-Year voter said “DeSantis is no-nonsense. He is a doer. He has been on offense every single day taking actions to push back and make substantive changes to move Florida back towards the ideals this country was founded on. Easy #1 choice.” Another voter said he “chose DeSantis because he has all around been a great representative of conservatism on many fronts.”
Other AMAC members who participated in the voting said they liked the way he handles issues such as the bill he supported that targets the teaching of Critical Race Theory (CRT) in Florida’s public K-12 schools and CRT instruction in the workplace. The bill passed the legislature and was signed into law by Governor Ron DeSantis in 2022. Others cited his parental rights legislation and the way he dealt with the Walt Disney Company’s “woke” policies, which wound up getting the company’s head of corporate affairs fired. As one participant in the poll put it, “I admire DeSantis because he stands up to all the woke idiot companies and the backwards way of thinking! He’s a man with a backbone who does the right thing for the people.”

I’m a Georgian but absolutely love what DeSantis is doing in Florida. He would make a fantastic president!
Give me a low grade break! You must be desperate making Ronny man of the year! Sure he is an okay Governor but he is a publicity hound! Lack of humility and that should disqualify Ronny! I am quitting AMAC and Will Not Renew My Membership! AMAC is Another Leftist Outfit!
It appears that many have never looked into the background of DiSantis. He will be exposed if he decides ti run for Pres. Let him stay in Fl. where some think he can do no wrong. Wrong. He has but no one looks into his doings. BYW I would never want to live in Fl.
Sounds like we wouldn’t want you to!
Too bad he’s allowing piglosi to move to his state. That will be a downfall in and of itself. She’ll turn Florida into California in a few years
Florida is a free state under the governorship of DeSantis. Ms. Pelosi may be shunned by freedom lovers. Perhaps she’ll actually repent of her many sins and receive forgiveness. Wouldn’t that be something?
I thought Donald Trump was a great president. He is a very smart businessman which is what this country needs to be run efficiently. He stood strong with all the harassment that he took while in office. Somehow, I think he was robbed of a second term. I think his biggest problem is, he tells it like it is and many people didn’t like it. He wasn’t one of the “Good Ole Boys” and didn’t fit in with many of the politicians that supposedly runs this country.
I believe that Joe Biden didn’t win the election, Donald Trump lost it. People would have voted for Mickey Mouse if he ran-anyone but Donald Trump. My fear is, if we have a repeat of the same matchup, a repeat is going to happen again. Many will vote for Biden again looking for a handout, especially the illegals.
I’m thinking, the ideal ticket would be a Trump/DeSantis one. Which one who would be President or Vice President really doesn’t matter to me as long as they win. We need to get our country back!
From most accounts, DeSantis is an excellent choice to be the Repub’s next runner for POTUS. Would love Trump with him as Veep candidate to back him up. I am a bit concerned that the rigors of POTUS might be a bit too strenuous for Trump altho I like his action, especially in his first term. I still believe Trump was grossly and unjustly harassed in his term.as POTUS.
Trump would never run as 2nd person, & can you imagine his thoughts at MarLago a couple of months ago when Kanye West said he was going to run for POTUS & asked Trump if he would be his VP? Would love to have seen the look on Trump’s face.
I LOVE THE MAN, HOWEVER, I URGE ALL SAINTS AND PATRIOTS TO PREPARE FOR THE WORSE
THINGS ARE ONLY GOING TO GET WORSE; we are near or already in the time of Tribulation , as described in the Holy Bible’s books of: Revelation, Mathew 24, Mark 13, Luke 21, Daniel, Isaiah, etc.
We are seeing: MASSIVE DECEPTION, unchecked amounts of blasphemy, self-loving perverts allowed to murder babies, perverts indoctrinating little children, perverts drawing little children into their godless obscenities, treasonous and depraved men running the world, perverts dividing and conquering by race-bating, most world leaders in the process of ushering in the NWO( i.e. the last kingdom of man under the Beast ), lawlessness, the depraved and perverted legally protected, illegal aliens used to destabilize nations, laws enacted to aid the ungodly and to terrorize the righteous, perverts ransacking our nation, our civil rights vanishing, wars and rumors of wars, famines, pestilences, earthquakes, fires, volcanic eruptions, signs in the sky, the persecution of Christians; including anyone with a conservative-view, a mass-exodus of false-Christians from the church(good-riddance!), and all of the usual world problems happening in greater number and magnitude than ever before.
GOD CREATED ONE-RACE, THE HUMAN RACE, OUR RIGHTEOUS GOD CREATES BEAUTIFUL FLOWERS OF DIFFERENT SHAPES AND COLORS –SO HAS HE DONE WITH HIS CHILDREN –SATAN HAS PERVERTED THIS BY INCLUDING SODOMITES, RACE-BAITERS, AND EVERY OTHER UNGODLY PERVERSION THAT WE ARE SEEING THESE DAYS; AND UNGODLY PEOPLE PROMOTE HIS PERVERTED WILL.
We are also witnessing the rise of the kingdom of the Antichrist(NWO); he will pretend to be the savior of the world, however, after 3 and 1/2 years of rule, he will unleash all hell upon the Earth. His kingdom will consist of a: One world religion, One world government, and One world monetary system; all of these have been predicted within the Holy Bible, thousands of years ago.
=== TURN TO JESUS CHRIST FOR THE FORGIVENESS OF SINS AND SALVATION OF YOUR SOULS, AND FOR STRENGTH FOR THE COMING PERSECUTION! ===
WE ARE IN THE TRIBULATION! [Peace has been taken from the Earth.]
Revelation 6:4 “And there went out another horse that was red: and power was given to him that sat thereon to TAKE PEACE FROM THE EARTH, and that they should kill one another: and there was given unto him a great sword.” –just look at the world, there is violence, and deception everywhere!
PRE-TRIBULATION ZEALOTS WILL SAY THAT IT HAS NOT STARTED, AND WILL KEEP SAYING SO EVEN WHEN THE BEAST SETS HIS THRONE IN THE TEMPLE!
My goodness. What kind of a frightening world are you living in? Time to close the book, pet the dog, and go out into nature.
You left out take the meds to combat the delusions part. The above rant is an extreme example of what we were talking about the other day in terms of irrational behavior or
mental bias. Such fanaticism exists to a degree in all religions. In most cases, it is limited to a very, very small minority. In others, like fundamental Islam, it is much more mainstream.
As I replied to Ann S, I don’t think God’s plan, to those who believe, includes living in such fear. What a waste of life! Tribulation! Persecution! Deception! When the obsession gets to the point where satan, the antichrist, and other phantom demons are forefront on their minds, it is time to visit the doctor. She and WTWalker are standing on that fine line between sentience and delusion. Or they’ve been taking to heart some of the garbage heard on late-night radio.
You said what most people don’t see. Like the reply from Kim.
You haven’t done any research Kim of what is going on in the world. One day it will become clear to you and you will be so scared that you will follow the satanists because they will promise you safety.
Get informed you will agree what Walker said has been going on for the last 14 years ever since the dems came into power in 2008, and has only gotten worse under Brandon, why? Because they openly are telling you what they are going to do, to get control over you.
I agree with you on one point, Ann S: biden’s party’s wish to take control of our lives. The “evil” left have been active for over 100 years, by the way, not just since 2008.
As far as your arrogant assertion that I “haven’t done any research“, nonsense. I know very well what’s going on in the world, but choose to live a life that celebrates nature, beauty, knowledge, and the good in people. The rest I’ll deal with as it comes along. And, no, I don’t fear satan or the antichrist, or the challenges I’ve faced in life.
I’m not religious, but I do believe your God would like to see you released from being held captive by such demons of thought. I pity you.
“You have rights antecedent to all earthly governments;rights that cannot be repealed or restrained by human laws;rights derived from the Great Legislator of the Universe.” John Adams, Second President of the United States.
I will be in heaven with my father during the 7 year tribulation. What you are seeing now is the Lord’s wrath on his people for not obeying his commandments. Look what he had done to Israel for not obeying his commandments and questioning his will for them
Every politician has secrets. Name one who doesn’t. Some are just better at hiding their secrets, and those are the ones I don’t trust. I like DeSantis because he keeps his word to the people he was elected to serve. Most politicians these days seldom remember that they are elected to serve anyone but themselves, and their party. More than a few of them want to take down our constitution and bill of rights. One of the reasons I disliked Hiliary, apart from her liberal views, was her saying that we just had to get used to losing our rights. Our founding leaders gave us those rights at the expense of life in some cases, and fortune in most cases. Everyone in the USA should know the rights that our constitution gives them, and value them as being unique and amazing in the political world. We are protected from political abuses, and should reject all attempts to remove, circumvent, and violate our constitution and the rights it gives us.
Trump made promises that he kept
Seriously people can we stop throwing around the word Nazi? It’s a word that all of you obviously have zero understanding of or you wouldn’t use it so freely. Learn your history of who and what those animals were and what they did to their own people before you throw it around so freely! @amac needs to remove those comments.
Ann, if you’ll notice, it’s usually Mike that throws the term “Nazi” around. You can just ignore him.
Sorry, I meant LauraG.
Donny as Presidentg and Ron as VP for 4 years, Ron as President for the next 8!!!!
Sounds like a winner to me
In the recent poll here, I voted for Musk as “Man Of The Year”. Sure DeSantis is turning to be a great Governor, but that’s just ONE state. But, on a national basis even worldwide you can’t discount Musk for putting his life and wallet on the line to preserve conservative speech by freeing up Twitter.
A well deserved recognition of Ron DeSantis’ accomplishments and approaches to governing the state of Florida. I give the man credit for what he’s done. Those accomplishments stand on their own. He represents a solid, well grounded approach to governing in a pro-Constitutional way.
I liked President Trump also. However, he never seemed to learn when to stop making sharp comments about his foes. Not that I disagreed or was offended by his comments. I thought worst about the worthless scumbags he rightly attacked. However, our Communist mainstream news media would concentrate only his comments and refused to promote the good he was doing for the country. And, of course, the American sheeple ate it all up. Now, we have a braindead idiot in the White House, who is mindlessly destroying our country and its economy, along with the ignorant morons he has appointed, and our Commie news media are really happy.
President Trump was great. He got it done. But too many”sensitive” people in our country put personality over policy. So they “hate” Trump. I say, Grow up and get over it.
So agree! System made me put a negative :(
I agree as well. Wouldn’t let me turn your negative to a positive . This happens frequently on here. I will tap up to 20 times then move on. Sometimes it tells me that I already voted when I haven’t. Must be run by same people operating dominion voting machines
Trump was a bully to many people & POTUS should never treat American citizens like that in public. Narcissism traits maybe. He made his own enemies & seemed to enjoy this tough guy role.
After reading a bunch of these comments all I can say is people are falling right into the hands of those who wish to divide the GOP voters. The mechanism is in full steam ahead pitting Trump and Desantis backers against one another. I can tell just by some of the comments that the Internet propaganda and conspiracy terrorist are doing their job well. Be careful what you read out there in cyberspace! ????????
Don’t know where those question marks came from, but I didn’t type them.
Maybe rested your right hand on the ?????? key..
The one time when all Republicans/Conservatives should not be divided is on Election Day in November 2024. If any of you stay home that day because your candidate wasn’t chosen in the primary, the blame is on you if biden wins again. Can you live with that? Can we bear another 4 years of this lunacy?! For the sake of this country’s prosperity–and yours–WE MUST VOTE!!
I’ve voted in every election for as long as I can remember. Until the voting system gets fixed in this country they will continue to select the people that they want in office
Will the election deniers vote or will they stay home ? in 2024
That crown on DeSantis’ head fell off and crashed to the floor when he started pushing for a constitutional convention. That is currently the greatest threat to our constitutional form of government. Go to jbs.org for more information. Yes, I know, Trump crashed to the floor also when he started bragging about his jab again. Oh, what a tangled web we weave…….
Please explain how using a portion that is written into our Constitution can be a threat to itself. This is not an amendment, this is a safety valve built into the Constitution for the states and the people to prevent the federal governmental over reach and usurping the states authorized powers.
Yes like term limits
Chuck needs to read the Constitution. It allows for a Convention of States and while he’s at it, study how a Convention of States really works.
I wouldn’t have believed that AMAC would censor our comment votes, AARP would maybe, but AMAC? I tried voting a “+” for your comment, HocasPocas, but it said I’d already voted and yet it shows “0” still. What’s going on AMAC??!! Did the same for others I tried voting for. It’ll let me put it in for some, but not others. And by the way, the founding fathers put in Article V for the states to call a convention for exactly the reason of what’s happening today – To try to put a stop to an out of control federal government. I’m not sure why Chuck fears a Convention of States. There’s a long and arduous process before any changes to the constitution takes place, not the least of which 38 states need to ratify any amendments put forth by the convention. Why wouldn’t Chuck want the people to be able to decide if something needs to be added to the constitution if the majority want it?
It’s a Convention of States. I’m not sure where you get your news but you’re either not reading correctly or you’re watching the left news stations
It’s just Mike, HocasPocas. For some reason he’s obsessed with the word “Nazi” but I doubt that he even understands what that means.
In addition to the conservative policies Gov. Ron DeSantis has been fighting for, I also appreciate his civil demeanor. He doesn’t call people names, he answers questions fully and factually, and he has convinced huge numbers of non-conservatives to vote for him and for other Republicans throughout the state. He carries less baggage.
As much as I admired President Trump for the business-friendly American-centric platform he delivered, he turned off too many voters, including R’s. If DeSantis runs in the primary, I’ll vote for him and donate to his campaign. If he doesn’t, we’ll see who else comes forward. I think America is ready for the next generation to step up.
Whoever the R candidate will be, every one of us must vote for him or her. No sitting out the 2024 election or 3rd party voting just because your first choice didn’t make it to the ballot. That’s how we lose elections.
As long as they are not RINO’s. We have enough of those in power already
It pains me to say that if it is a RINO chosen in the primaries, I will vote for him. But I don’t think that will happen. Still better than any D in the White House.
Gmama is right. Trump / DeSantis would be unbeatable by any measure. But can you just hear the splashing sounds from tidal waves of tears from the left about the ticket being too white. If both are running against each other, I am going with Trump. BTW, I love the name calling. Donalds for VP.
You mean that they would be deemed white, racist trash because they are two white men?
De Santis continues to fight and win against COVID tyranny, school and college indoctrination, and against giant international corporations like Disney. He is the only Governor with the cojones to fire a Soros backed prosecutor for failure to fulfill his constitutional duties to uphold the law. Unlike Trump he has no blind spots in his supporting cast (i.e. especially Sessions and Barr) and has hired an outstanding Attorney General and has one of the best state Surgeon General’s in the country; who fought against the CDC mask mandates and helped expose the COVID lies. Also, unlike Trump, he speaks forcibly but clearly and articulately without wandering off track and unnecessary and childish name calling. And don’t call me an anti Trump RINO because I voted for him twice but simply know that he is too divisive to ever win again. On the other hand, De Santis got the most decisive Republican victory in the mid-terms in the country and changed one of the most “diverse” states from a purple state to a solid red state by 20 points. De Santis has both a military and legal background so he has the expertise to fight and not get fooled in either arena. He has proved he can win independents and even Democrats and Trump never will and he has done so without compromise. Clearly, De Santis is the future of the Republican Party.
I, too, voted for Trump twice. But after seeing the decisive wins across Florida and listening to him speak, I hope DeSantis will run for president. Trump was an effective president, and most Americans recognized the differences he made in the economy, foreign policy, and among the minorities. He stood defiantly against the unfounded onslaught from congressional adversaries, the FBI/DOJ, the media, and the courts while accomplishing much for the country.
With the questionable results in the 2020 elections and a high
