Since living in Florida, my standard footwear is flip flops. In summer without socks and as a fashion faux pas: socks in winter (mind you: just around the house). Flip flops got its name from flopping back and forth against the soles of one's feet when one walks. Some candidates are flip flops on their policies and ideas
There was a 2006 robocall message from a gubernatorial candidate which said: "I’m pro-life, I opposed amnesty for illegal immigrants, I support traditional marriage, and I have never supported a new tax or big spending program. I support a constitutional amendment to protect traditional marriage, and I oppose adoption by gay couples, and I work to ensure the right to display the Ten Commandments in public places."
Today this message would sound racist, homophobic, etc. This candidate is now running again for Governor of Florida but has flip flopped not only on policies but also on party affiliation (Republican to Democrat).
Most voters like a candidate that "sticks to his guns" and does not flip-flop with the changing political winds. Indecisive people make poor leaders. We have a good Governor Ron DeSantis who has been decisive on many major issues that have affected Florida from the pandemic (keeping businesses and schools open), election integrity, parental rights, the environment, and keeping Florida a productive state. DeSantis' fiscal policies has enabled Florida to have a $20 billion budget surplus.
