Nanny state pandemic policies are failing in this blue state much to the dismay of its leaders

Blue state citizens have been forced to jump through hoops to make their leftist leaders happy for the past two years.

Unfortunately, they have nothing to show for their efforts.

And nanny state pandemic policies are failing in this blue state much to the dismay of its leaders.

Fewer people are dying from COVID-19 today in some states where leftists have been blasting Governors for their “irresponsible” approach.

The most striking example is the contrast between California and Florida.

Both sunny states boast large populations and strong Governors with completely opposite approaches to handling the pandemic.

California’s Governor Gavin Newsom leans as far to the Left as Florida’s Governor Ron DeSantis embraces the Right.

While Newsom is busy making sure elementary school students are forced to get the COVID-19 vaccinations, DeSantis is forcing schools to make sure having students wear masks is completely up to parental discretion.

So, is everyone dropping off like flies in Florida, as the corporate-controlled media and control freak leftists would like you to believe?

Well, not exactly.

In fact, while California has a death rate of 0.14 per 100,000 people, Florida’s is about half that at 0.07, according to Becker’s Hospital Review.

That number alone seems like an endorsement of Florida’s laissez-faire approach, but we also need to consider risk levels.

It seemed likely from the outset that Florida would have an outsized death toll due to its popularity as a retirement destination.

After all, retirees have been fleeing from California for decades to cash in on their high home values and spend their final years in a relatively low cost of living area.

Yet, somehow, Floridians are faring much better than their counterparts in California.

And, thanks to the fact that central planners haven’t yet managed to fully control the lives of every single American, we can still pick and choose where we live – and, in theory, our leaders can learn from their mistakes compared to the success of other states.

As Steven Greenhut wrote in a recent opinion piece, “After watching the states apply different COVID-19 restrictions, we should all come away with a better understanding of why our nation’s Founding Fathers believed in federalism, where states are the laboratories of democracy that can try regulatory approaches that conform to local attitudes and conditions.”

Of course, that only works as long as our leaders want us to live healthy lives as free as possible.

The jury is still out on exactly what leftist Governors like Newsom are trying to accomplish.
