Florida Democrats, Cuba and Haiti: Different standards

Once again Florida’s Democrats find themselves so fearful of the term “socialism” that they are pandering when they discuss policy. Maybe it’s because of the oxygen media in the state gives this term despite feigning sympathy with the mis-characterization (Ron DeSantis, whose ideology is one of Statist authoritarianism is hardly ever characterized as anything but […]

TFS + – Cuba, not Covid dominating Florida politics?

Incredibly as Florida records a disproportionate number of new Covid cases in the state compared to other states, has an Attorney General who contracted COVID and prepares to send kids back to school without masks, Cuba is a more pressing issue for the state politicians. Florida has produced almost 30,000 new COVID cases in the […]

Fried’s financial disclosure snafu- it is a big deal if you are looking at a broader picture

Financial disclosure forms, a legacy of the progressive good government Florida of yesteryear are sometimes very difficult to navigate. However, large errors like the one Agriculture Commissioner Nikki Fried previously made and amended right before she jumped into the Governor’s race, give fodder to political opponents even if they are largely innocuous mistakes. My opinion […]

Biden’s Florida Latino problem is real. Here are 7 reasons why

A slew of polling in the last week has indicated Joe Biden has a real problem with Latino voters in Florida. These polls came as a shock to many political observers but as my Twitter feed indicates (if you go back a bit), I had detected the softness of Biden’s support among Latino’s before any […]

I-95 corridor north of Jupiter could be key for Democrats in 2020

After the 2014 elections a narrative was churned out that Democrats could have won the statewide election by focusing on the I-10 corridor. I countered on these pages claiming the I-75 corridor was more important, something I continue to believe as Democratic fortunes in statewide races have continued to underwhelm. However, little or no time […]

In 2020, the GOP holds the slightest of edges in Florida

The common narrative among activists and those who are hopeful that Democrats will win Florida in 2020 is that President Trump is so unpopular and demographic shifts will deliver the state to the Democratic Presidential nominee. But the problem is Trump isn’t as unpopular in the state as many Democrats think (particularly among those most […]

Florida Democrats and Venezuela – subconsciously backing American imperialism in Latin America?

I was out of the country for several weeks so I only observed from a far much of the sprint Florida Democrats took in the last month toward a neoliberal/neoconservative position on Venezuela and Nicolas Maduro. Donald Trump’s Presidents Day “pep rally” at FIU which was built around the case for American intervention of some […]

Florida Democratic consultancy class is to blame for electoral failures.

Florida’s Democratic Party elite are exceptionally good at winning primaries and controlling the internal narrative yet exceptionally bad at winning general elections and understanding the electorate .  When you predict the first election accurately over the “experts”,you pat yourself on the back knowing that you were able to accurately predict the election and beat those […]

Florida Democrats – Participation medals and every person for themselves

WRITERS NOTE: WHEN I REFER TO “FLORIDA DEMOCRATS” OR “DEMOCRATS IN FLORIDA,” OR “THE PARTY” IN THIS ARTICLE I AM NOT REFERRING TO THE FLORIDA DEMOCRATIC PARTY, WHICH AS A STANDALONE ENTITY IS NOT ITSELF THE OVERRIDING PROBLEM IN THIS STATE. I REFER TO A GROUP OF ELITES, MANY OF WHOM DO NOT HAVE ANY […]

Another Florida Democratic disaster. Wave doesn’t reach Florida. (UPDATED and EDITED)

Florida Democrats have once again struck out in a big way. For the third straight cycle the Democrats have been embarrassed in Florida.  But what made this cycle worse is it seemingly came against the tide nationally, which favored the Democrats heavily. Like 1998 and 2006, good national years for the Democrats were not replicated […]
