If you favor rising local, state and personal taxes or enacting an eventual state income tax, you are not likely to vote for Gov. Rick Scott. If you are in favor of throwing money at education or the perpetual expansion of welfare and assistance programs, Gov. Scott is surely not your man.
The extremists of the Democratic Party and media are experts at applying Saul Alinsky's principles to discredit, distort and destroy anyone or anything that does not embrace their philosophy. They constantly chant the virtues of diversity -- "their" concept of diversity -- but when it comes to the discussion of truly diverse ideas they have a severe apoplectic reaction.
Gov. Scott will not receive credit for much, if anything, according to those whose philosophy he is out of line with. In other words, "he didn't accomplish that!" Or, "what does it matter anyway!" rantings you've heard before.
When Scott became governor, the unemployment level was at 11 percent. It is now running at 6 percent. He rejected federal "make busy money" for the bullet train, a "well known loser."
Scott reduced the deficit from $5.2 billion to $3.6 billion. So far the governor reduced property and business taxes, and eliminated over 2,000 state regulations to attract businesses to Florida. He helped create over 400,000 jobs so far.
Governor Scott's work is ongoing in these and many other programs that elitist progressives despise.
We learned on a national level that when a divisive and devious ideologue is elected instead of someone who understands business, who supports the Constitution and the free enterprise system on which this country was built and the freedom of opportunity it provides, the very soul of the country is put at risk.
Considering Charlie Crist, who changed his political affiliation three times, is like opening a box of chocolates.
