Life in Florida is all roses after the Super Bowl, no lockdown, and it’s business as usual. Florida is known as the Sunshine State, and for Floridians, life is on the up and up.
Business is running, as usual, schools have stayed open, and there seems to be a festive air.
People from around the country are leaving their homes to relocate to the Sunny State, and Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis spoke to “Fox and Friends” on Sunday ahead of the Super Bowl XL, explaining why. “You look around the country, they still are debating whether schools should be open,” he said. “We’ve had schools open the whole year.”
“They talk about whether businesses should be open. Every business in Florida has a right to operate,” he continued.
“As other states have tried to lock people down, we’ve tried to lift people up,” DeSantis told host Will Cain in Tampa before the start of the Super Bowl.
De Santis said Florida had “less COVID mortality per capita than the national average, 25 states or higher, so the lockdowns don’t work on their own, but they cause catastrophic damage to society.
According to data compiled by Johns Hopkins University, figures as of Sunday, Feb. 7, in Florida were nearly 1.8 million coronavirus cases and almost 27,600 deaths.
Mainstream media has criticized De Santis’s handling of the CCP Virus, and his response is, “They have a partisan agenda, and I think it was an election year. They did not want the president to carry Florida.”
Trump won Florida’s 29 electoral votes in the November election, defeating Joe Biden in the prized battleground state.
“They don’t care about the facts, in fact they will ignore facts that are inconvenient for their narrative and even concoct conspiracy theories,” he continued.
“But here’s the thing, people aren’t buying it because people vote with their feet and they are flooding into this state,” DeSantis added. “We have investment coming in, we have people buying homes like never before.”
According to DeSantis, one big motivation for families to move to Florida is sports, and the opportunity to make the grade into university.
“I have parents who have moved their kids to Florida because they didn’t want to miss football season, which they would have in some of these locked down states,” he said.
DeSantis pointed out that “people don’t buy” the “narratives that some of the corporate elite media try to sell.” “And this is a perfect example because if people bought their narrative, you’d have people leaving here to go to these states that are supposedly doing so well,” he continued.
Then, on Sunday night when the Tampa Bay Buccaneers won their first Super Bowl since 2002, and they became the first team to play and win a Super Bowl in their home stadium on Sunday night, positive vibes went up a notch.
Rob Gronkowski who came out of retirement to play for the home team, summed it up. “You know, it feels amazing. It feels tremendous. Unbelievable story,” Gronkowski said. “The first time a team going to the Super Bowl in its home town, that story is surreal.
“But the most important storyline is how everyone worked together. Everyone contributed. It’s just amazing. What a year it was playing with these guys. What a year. I can’t say that enough,” reported Fox News.
