1. I am hoping that nation will form on a remote island.

They can all relocate and form their own "perfect union". Maybe cameras can be installed so we can watch a real life version of 'Lord of the Flies'.

I would suggest the government can make the situation a 'pay for view' live, remote broadcast. It would be both a teaching tool and some pretty lively entertainment. Unfortunately, I think it would turn out far worse than Jonestown and nobody needs to see that.

I'd predict that within weeks they will start looking for reasons to turn against each other because they have a pathological need to feel superior to others. Blonds will separate off from the brunettes and brunettes from the red heads. Then those groups will segment into eye color, or height, or weight. Before long, tribal warfare will begin.

Deities help anyone who develops a physical weakness. They might be in danger of a cull.

3. I think that Trumpism will increase to a peak in about 2035.

Then, they will drift into socialism, as sea level rise devours their roads, highways, houses, commercial structures, and businesses.

5. Submerged continental shelves are the most productive parts of the ocean biologically.

A few meters of sea rise would make much of Florida far more productive.

6. If it happens....

We could annex the peninsula and let it float off into the Atlantic Ocean. If pence isnít there when we do it, Ivan Th Terrible Desantas could just become Frumpys permanent VP.

Some of us are long time DU members. Many of us are fighting the good fight every day.

16. I'm in west Central FL

Red, red, red. But we've lived here so long we remember when it was all Southern Democrat.

Still, we have a very active Democratic party here - and a large Democratic Women's Club, which I helped to found in 2017.

My husband and I both work in this county. It's disappointing that posters on this board seem to think that "red" states are all red and "blue" states are all blue.

18. Wow, you MISSED the whole cliffhanger in FL? Of course, in the end

Trump won, 51.2% to 47.9%, but for a long time no one knew how it was going to turn out.

Almost all Hispanic groups are solidly conservative overall, so in the end increased Hispanic turnout tipped it. Understanding that for the most part Hispanic conservatives are as antagonistic to undocumented immigrants as any others, and as antagonistic to Democrats.

Literally.

17. I don't trust that video.




Florida starts at 1:52 and is completely gone at 1:58, yet Andros Island and the rest of The Bahamas are unaffected. Maybe that's why comments are turned off for that video.

14. Born and raised there. Left.

It will become as toxic and hated to progressives as NY and CA are to RWNJs.

I know it's swampy (literally and politically), but there is a natural beauty about it. It does have its charms with the beaches.

But those DAMN Republicans voters. The politics in that state are insufferable and Tallahaasse has its foot on the neck of the main metro areas where there's the most resistance.
