Here we go again… the primaries are far from finalized and now the Republican Candidates for the Presidency is up for grabs. The Republican Party don’t have an incumbent in office. Since President Donald J. Trump lost in the 2020 elections. Now the GOP is gearing up and familiar faces wants to get upgraded.
This time around it’s former Representative of the 6th District of Florida and incumbent Governor Ron DeSantis. He launched his Candidacy yesterday and starting his “press run” for it. While he did so with the “international tour” and tried to be convincing abroad. Because visiting Israel and Japan wasn’t to export Floridian grapefruits or bell peppers.
There is already speculation that DeSantis wants to detach Trump. By announcing his campaign, he wants to get on national stage and takeover the party. Alas, there is where the trouble lay…
Trump has a chokehold over the GOP and parts of base is a Cult45. Therefore, the ones challenging him will be doubted, questioned, and meet massive backlash. Even if Trump is indicted, investigated and has several pending cases against. As much as he is also sanctioned business-wise or in his personal space. Sooner or later all the enterprises he has run will fall flat. That’s what DeSantis must bank on and that at one point, the wheel of justice rolls in his favour. This is the only thing that can topple Trump within the ranks of the GOP.
The ones’ believing DeSantis is a better suited man for Presidency is wrong. He acts more polished but is a reckless and fascist politician. A real populist who seeks his base and feeds it gold. That’s what DeSantis does, and he don’t mind hurting minorities or anyone else. If he gets political capital by doing so.
DeSantis is such a vile person that he even targets the Disney Corporation and losses huge corporate investment in his state. That’s all for political gains and hope that the GOP base will back him in a primary. Because that is all he got. There will be little to no “bipartisan” support or lots of independent voters stepping up for DeSantis. His track-record and choices as governor in Florida is really telling.
Another Jeb Bush, another Florida Governor wanting the highest office. A man who thinks his ready. Yes, Jeb came from a family of politicians and DeSantis doesn’t, but he comes in with similar baggage still. There is little charisma or oozing of confidence as DeSantis stumbles along the way.
DeSantis needs to pray for a miracle or a detrimental judgement against Trump. In such a fashion that its not feasible for him to be front-runner anymore. We have seen that the E. Carrol case isn’t enough. So, there sadly must be more juice and more fire to bring Donald down.
I’m just sad that this is all the GOP got. They are maybe fielding Nikki Haley, but she isn’t any good either. There are just a lot of nonsense and people who does whatever it takes to get power. These are admirable people or people to look up too. Unless you want minorities to suffer and wants government to micromanage your love-life. Because that is what the likes of DeSantis does.
I cannot see any good in this man. His time in office as Governor of Florida is a statement of what he could do in the White House. It would take the Republic back in time and could easily be worse than the years under Trump. Therefore, I wonder if the GOP even has viable or honest candidates anymore.
When people like DeSantis steps up to the plate and prepares himself for journey into the unknown. Peace.
