The Desire for Freedom is Seen in Florida’s Tourism Numbers


President Biden pretends to know what Americans want. If you look at all that he’s done since getting into office, he believes that Americans want open borders, high crime rates, and the desire to go into a polling place and vote without having to show an ID.

The Biden administration doesn’t have a clue as to what people want – and it’s seen in Biden and Harris’ polling numbers.

Americans want freedom. They want the ability to go into a place without having to show proof of vaccination. They want to walk through a room without a mask smothering their nose and mouth. And they want to kick back in the sun and sand without a Democrat trying to suffocate them with some ridiculous mandate.

One of the best places to enjoy that kind of freedom in the U.S. is in Florida. Governor Ron DeSantis has worked hard to make sure people have their freedoms – even if it means going toe to toe with Joe Biden.

It’s obvious that people want freedom, too. Just look at the domestic tourism numbers that Florida has been experiencing over the past year. More people are traveling there than to any other state. And there are plenty of liberals from other states who have been caught enjoying a mask-free date there, too, including the hypocritical Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez herself.

DeSantis proudly announced that there were 117.7 million domestic visitors in 2021, the most the state has ever seen. It was a way of proving what people really wanted, even when politicians and liberal media criticized the state for the approach to the COVID pandemic.

There was a focus on liberty over mandates and rules. DeSantis took a red approach – and blue states were furious.

Quarter four of 2021 saw 30.9 million visitors than 2019 – a seven percent increase.

It has led the Tourism Bureau to take this kind of information and run with it. A slogan of “Vacation to Freedom” is being used, which also shows off some of the new statistics.

All of the data backs up what DeSantis has been saying for nearly a year. People are visiting Florida because they want to enjoy some freedom. Beyond AOC being spotted for a visit, there have also been plenty of other Democrats showing their maskless faces for sunshine including Representative Eric Swalwell, CNN’s Don Lemon, and Michigan Governor Gretchen Whitmer.

There were more Republicans registered in the state than Democrats by the end of the year, too. It makes sense – and DeSantis explained that “The lockdowns turned them into Republicans because they say, ‘I cannot fathom,’ people say, ‘I was a Democrat because of education, and I’m in California and they’re locking my kids out of school. I come to Florida, they [are] in school, people are free, people are happy.’ So I think this whole process has caused some people to reevaluate some of their prior commitments.”

Even though Biden thinks he knows what Americans want, the reality is that only DeSantis has been able to actually give people what they want. The never-ending mandates and restrictions are only causing Americans to realize that they don’t want anything to do with liberal leadership – and they’re using Florida as their “escape hatch” to experience what real freedom sounds like.

It’s no wonder that Ron DeSantis is being considered as “America’s governor.” If he runs for president in 2024, he could end up getting a record-breaking number of votes because, well, freedom.
