    It wouldn't mesh with the rest of the US and world.. Eventually in Florida 4:30 pm to the rest in the eastern timezone would become 4:30 AM to Florida, then they would start losing calender days.

    I wish my state would keep DST year round. It would be good for me (the most important person I know) and good for business. If it's too dark, let school start an hour later, not so big of a deal.

    It would make absolutely no sense to do that... We would lose time.

    This proposed idea by this politician from Florida is so silly it actually works against it's actual intent.

    The sun can't always be in the middle of the sky at noon - the laws that be won't allow it to happen.

    This proposal is one of the dumbest things I have heard this week.

    Are you being serious? Excuse John Galt, the man of such industrial prowess the rest of us meager leeches must feed from him a la Ayn Rand, but are you being serious here? I can't imagine such a producer and self made man would be saying something so damn dumb.

    So let me break it down for you, the proposed law would simply mean Florida stayed on Eastern Standard Time year round. It would NOT mean that every Day Light Savings that Florida would jump ANOTHER hour forward. They are only going to spring forward ONCE.

    I mean are you serious? Seriously? I don't even.... Wow I can't believe this, am I really reading this? Holy **** man.

    It doesn't work that way...

    What Florida (or this idiot politician) wants is a definite time... He wants the sun to be in the same position of the sky every time on the same day. Such an idea is impossible.

    No he wants to move Florida permanently an hour ahead in March. That won't cause the sun to be in the same spot of the sky every time of every day and no one is saying it will. And it certainly won't in 12 years mean if I drive from Alabama to Florida that i'll go from 430PM to 0430AM and the sun will still be out. God damn I can't believe you wrote that.

    You are misinterpreting.

    I don't think this is something that should be done at the state level. It would be chaotic and problematic to have half of the states in the same time zone with different times. As far as the idea of implementing it at the national level; I'm unsure. I like having extra light at night, but I don't like the idea of it still being dark at 8am in the winter.
    I sure wish Georgia would do the same. I don't care which time they choose, just keep one all year around. Indiana had some counties that didn't change their time, but most did. Arizona and hawaii do not change times either.
    This Reform Party member thinks it is high past time that we start electing Americans to congress and the presidency who put America first and their political party further down the line. But for way too long we have been electing Republicans and Democrats who happen to be Americans instead of Americans who happen to be Republicans and Democrats.

    Are you seriously trying to assert this proposed idea will not change time in Florida??

    If that's the case then what the hell is the purpose of this proposed legislation??

    You don't know what the hell you're talking about.

    Florida would lose 2 hours every year (against time everywhere else but Florida)... In other words when it's 2pm in Atlanta it be noon in Florida, then every year it would just get progressively more off..

    If you don't understand this then fine...
