Governor Ron DeSantis is admired by conservatives, and he has fought to make Florida a sanctuary for conservative beliefs.
One of these ideals relates to liberty.
DeSantis is a fiscal conservative, and his policies are yielding positive outcomes.
It is speculated that DeSantis is considering a run for the White House, and he is frequently the only candidate whose popularity rivals that of the front-runner, former President Donald Trump.
Conservatives recognize and value DeSantis’ no-nonsense approach to setting clear boundaries, according to polling data.
And this is shown in data comparing Florida to the other states in the United States.
Florida’s economic growth has remained stable throughout time.
In July, Florida’s unemployment rate reached a record low of 2.7%, which was 0.8% lower than the national unemployment rate in Biden’s America.
“U.S. GDP dropped for a second quarter in a row, which is the definition of a recession,” declared DeSantis in July after yet another dismal economic report.
He stated, “While the Biden Administration and its legacy media cheerleaders are trying to gaslight people about the economic slowdown, we have seen Biden’s poor economic stewardship and the negative impact it has had on families.”

According to a recent report, Florida ranks highly in terms of specific liberties.
The CATO Institute has released a new index comparing personal and economic liberties, and Florida ranks highly in certain categories.
Governor DeSantis is ecstatic for his state following the announcement of the index’s findings.
The report shows why Florida exceeds the remaining 49 states in a given category, citing the state’s lack of individual state income tax as the primary reason.
More on this story via The Republic Brief:
Florida’s state-level tax collections are more than 1.5 standard deviations below the national average, whereas its local tax collections are a little lower than average.
Florida’s fiscal decentralization does not offer a great deal of choice to homeowners, however, because the state has only about half an effective competing jurisdiction per 100 square miles.
Government consumption and debt are lower than average. Government employment is much below average, falling from 11.2 percent of private employment in 2010 to 8.3 percent in 2019. CONTINUE READING…
