    I don't care if we have DLS all year or standard all year, but just leave it at one or the other

    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...
    Florida wouldn't lose anything or any state for that matter. Right now we just changed to DST, it is exactly 1500 hrs for every state in the Eastern time Zone. Come fall, all other states would set their clocks back an hour to standard time, florida would not. So it would be 1400 hrs now for all the Eastern time zone states except florida which would stay at 1500hrs. Come spring time, spring forward and move your clocks forward an hour, the rest of the eastern time zone would set their clocks up an hous and now both Florida and the rest are back at 1500hrs. There is no losing two hours every years. The rest of the eastern time zone would fall back one hour in the fall putting them one hour behind florida. In the spring they would spring forward once again to come on the same time that Florida kept all year around.
    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.

    The notion one can set the sun rise every day to a Floridian at 6am is not only goofy it's ignorant and that is exactly what is being proposed here.

    So Florida is proposing they be the center of the solar system and time? Because that is the only possible way such an idea could work.. It would make Florida the center of time.

    you're wrong. It works for Arizona and Hawaii and certain counties in Indiana if Indiana hadn't changed their laws. It just mean for a half a year, Florida and the rest of the states in the Eastern time zone there would be exactly one hour time difference. For the remaining half of the year the time would be the same. It is no big thing. I would love to see Georgia stay on DST all year around. Perhaps if this becomes law in Florida, Georgia will follow. In fact I am about to write a letter to my state legislature suggesting Georgia stay on the same time all year around. As it is Florida to the south is on the same time, but Alabama to the west is on Central time. So there is an hours difference with Alabama anyway.

    Speaking from experience, it does makes airline scheduling for passengers a bit difficult. They never know what time to have someone pick them up at the airport...

    Fine if you want make believe times in certain states - whatever. You will be changing your clock everyday instead of twice a year to keep up with the rest of the world.

    You do realize if you do this the rest of the world will be on a precise schedule and Florida will see the rest of the worlds events and time in general change?

    Mr. Nick, Florida isn't going to add an hour every year at daylight savings time. It will add an hour only once, and (most) of the other states will be adding and subtracting an hour once per year. During DST, all areas in the eastern time zone following DST will have the same time as Florida; during standard time, when all other states will fall back one hour, Florida will retain its hour and be one hour ahead. That's it.
    The morality of abortion is not a religious belief, any more than the morality of slavery, apartheid, rape, larceny, murder or arson is a religious belief. These are norms of the natural law of mankind and can be legislated even in a completely religionless society.
