The governor of Florida, Ron DeSantis, proposed the idea that federal government departments should be dispersed around the country, rather than centralized in the nation’s capital.
The Problem and the Solutions
According to the New York Post, DeSantis was quoted as saying too much authority has gathered in Washington, DC. This led to the creation of a detached state apparatus that reigns over us and enforces its will on us.
Despite the fact there is a laundry list of things that need to be done in order to re-constitutionalize the government, distributing federal agencies to various regions of the country could be one way to mitigate the detrimental impacts of an excessive concentration of power.
What an AWESOME idea 🇺🇸👏https://t.co/XI8bcCsNlg

Florida Republican Senator Rick Scott, who held the governorship of the state before Ron DeSantis, noted he is in agreement with this statement.
In a tweet, Scott acknowledged that DeSantis was correct and stated he had made the same suggestion in his Rescue America plan. The Republican elite in DC wants to defend the status quo, but if we want to rescue our nation, we need to be for big, daring ideas.
Ron is right. I proposed the same in my Rescue America plan.
The Republican establishment in Washington wants to protect the status quo, but we need to be for big, bold ideas if we want to save our country. https://t.co/IgXbAr3urp

In spite of the fact he has not disclosed any intentions to run for president, DeSantis is widely regarded as a candidate who may do so in the future.
That’s given the fact that he was successful in reelection as governor of the Sunshine State in the election that took place in 2022.
Nikki Haley, the former United States Ambassador to the United Nations, and Donald Trump, a former president of the United States, both already declared their candidacies for the presidency.
In the following months, there is the possibility that other Republicans will enter the campaign.
During an interview on “Fox & Friends,” the host asked DeSantis about his timeframe for deciding to choose whether or not to run for president.
In response, DeSantis mentioned he will soon have a new book published and the upcoming legislative session in Florida is quickly approaching. DeSantis stated once that obstacle was overcome, the decision-making process could begin.
The publication of “The Courage to Be Free: Florida’s Blueprint for America’s Revival,” written by DeSantis, is set for the 28th of February.
According to the Washington Post, DeSantis was quoted as saying that practically every significant institution in the country is working toward the goal of imposing a “progressive” agenda on society.
The state of Florida works hard to preserve the rights of its residents and ensure they are not forced to comply with any agenda that is imposed on them.
Trump has been launching attacks against DeSantis, labeling him as “RINO,” that’s an abbreviation that stands for “Republican in name only,” and referring to him as “DeSanctimonious.”
