It’s time to Reopen Florida

Floridians call for an end to DeSantis’ Shutdown

A growing number of responsible Floridians will join together to call for an end to the Gov. Ron DeSantis mandated damage to the Florida economy. The first of these events is in Orlando tomorrow seeking to let Orange County and lawmakers statewide know that the people have had enough and they want to go back to work. We expect more to follow as Americans come to realize the irresponsible “cure” is already worse than the “illness” for most.

In a recent open letter to DeSantis, Re-Open Florida: Orange County organizer Tara Hill wrote “Governor DeSantis, your constituents are emphatically compelling you to honor your oath to uphold The Constitution of the United States of America and re-open Florida so that we may not only preserve the lives of Floridians, but so we may preserve our right to liberty and the pursuit of happiness as well.”

The Libertarian Party of Florida, since it was founded in 1974, supports the free will of every person to make responsible choices for themselves and on behalf of those around them. If being responsible means social distancing and wearing masks and gloves to protect ourselves and others, we encourage it based on medical evidence. But personal security does not mean shutting down our economy. Summarily closing society: businesses, schools, free commerce, will produce damage to our society long after the medical concerns have been addressed. A growing number of businesses are permanently shuttering, their owners and employees joining the millions already left to fend for themselves in this dystopian landscape mandated by President Trump, DeSantis and most governors. Billions of illusionary dollars in “stimulus checks” will do nothing to replenish the damage done.

We encourage each of you to join together with your fellow freedom friends and let Orange County, Florida and the world know enough is enough. Let us be responsible again.

In Orlando, the rally will be in front of the Orange County Administration Building, 201 S Rosalind Ave, from 3:30 pm to 5 pm.
