Florida Governor Ron DeSantis rejected the idea of imposing additional COVID lockdowns and slammed the concept of living in a “Faucian Dystopia.”
On Wednesday, DeSantis delivered a fiery speech to the American Legislative Exchange Council’s annual meeting in Utah.
“I think it’s very important that we say unequivocally no to lockdowns, no to school closures, no to restrictions, and no to mandates,” the Governor of Florida said.
“I think it’s very important that we say unequivocally: no to lockdowns, no to school closures, no to restrictions, and no mandates…Americans should be free to choose how they govern their affairs…not consigned to live in a Faucian dystopia.”
