In a Republic, actually
'The administration of Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis, America’s premier “anti-woke warrior,” seems to have set its sights on a new target: color displays on Florida’s bridges. As part of DeSantis’ “Freedom Summer” initiative, the state’s transportation secretary, Jared W. Perdue, announced earlier this month that bridges in the state will have no choice but to be illuminated in red, white and blue from Memorial Day through Labor Day.

The Ringling Causeway Bridge over Sarasota Bay usually lights up in rainbow colors for a week in June, and also marks other causes during the summer, such as orange for National Gun Awareness Month and yellow for Women’s Equality Day.

Florida’s Department of Transportation, which has purview over the state’s bridges, issued the order mandating the strict color display after the chair of the Manatee County Commission objected to changing the lights to honor Pride Month and Gun Violence Awareness Day, the Tampa Bay Times reported.'


Florida has become North Korea – a bizarre, authoritarian Stalinist state.

Don’t say climate change


On Thursday, we reported … that the government of Florida was beginning to roll back really important climate-change legislation and really important climate-change language.”


MacLaughin condemned DeSantis’s position on the matter, saying that it came “in spite of the fact that the state of Florida over the last couple of years has seen record heat, record flooding, record rain, record insurance rates, and the corals are dying all around the state”.

I don't see the problem with lighting the bridge with the red-white-blue patriotic colors. ... :dunno:
I don’t see a problem with allowing the bridges the freedom of choice to illuminate themselves in whatever way they wish. Give them more freedom and autonomy the way a small government should not less.
