Florida GOP wants to use Drones against Floridians
The sponsor, Florida Senator Joe Negron, who is a Stuart Republican, told a Senate committee on Wednesday he would vote against his own bill if such an amendment is added. Sen. Negron said that “such an amendment would have let King George use drones against the Boston Tea Party if the unmanned aircraft had existed in the 18th century”. He also added that it defeats the purpose of instituting such a ban in the first place.
The purpose of the Negron Drone Ban is to limit the ability of the Local, State, and Federal Governments from using drones against Floridians as a way to illegally spy on them, target them for assassination, or suppress a future revolt of Floridians against the government should the government become tyrannical.
The Community Affairs Committee unanimously approved the bill (SB 92) although several Republican and Democrat members urged Negron to consider loosening its restrictions and allowing the police to use Drones for crowd control, and suppressing civil unrest which would include open revolution. The bill would ban the use of drones for law and code enforcement with three major exceptions including terrorism. It also would allow drone use authorized by search warrants and in cases of imminent danger such as a missing child.
We would like to tip our hats to Senator Negron, apparently he is one of the last remaining true conservative Republicans, and he should consider leaving the sinking ship that is the GOP and join either the Libertarian Party or Constitution Party. The Conservative Wing of the Republican Party is quickly going the way of the old Southern Wing of the Democrat Party, and just like the Southern Democrats, the Conservative Republicans will one day wake up and finally see that their party has been infiltrated and taken over by a steady stream of socialist moderates.
The only true conservative political parties in Florida are the Libertarians and the Constitutionalists and both would love to have some conservatives join them.
