    What will be repealed 1st, Obamacare or Florida Stand Your Ground

    National boycotts are now being encouraged for products critical to the Florida economy. Disney theme parks both in Florida and California, all orange juices of all brands even if other states are affected and a list of national retail stores. It's not well known but Florida is also the nation's top cattle producer, even ahead of Texas so beef and dairy prices could be going down too, although it might not since many people aren't aware of Florida's huge cattle industry.

    As they say, money talks. If the Florida economy is brought to its knees, they might be forced to repeal stand your ground even though the current governor says he won't. What do you think, will stand your ground be repealed before Obamacare? Sorry, with all the talk of repealing Obamacare when I hear repeal even in the context of stand your ground, Obamacare comes to mind. I personally think I would be funny to see Obamacare not repealed but stand your ground repealed.

    I also think this whole matter hurts Jeb Bush's chances in 2016. He was the Florida governor who signed it into law.

    Neither. Most likely both will be modified, but their overall spirit will remain. That is to say, the trend towards healthcare for all will continue, and the principles of self-defense will continue. The specifics will be modified as many times as are necessary to get it right.

    Obamacare won't be repealed. Another health care reform might be passed, but it will probably be as cumbersome and expensive as Obamacare ever was, and we'll continue to have the most expensive health care on the planet.

    Stand your ground laws may eventually be repealed, but the furor over Travon Martin will have long ago died down before it is. Stand your ground actually had nothing to do with the Martin case anyway. Was Zimmerman supposed to try to run off while his head was being pounded into the concrete?

    I do not think it is a good thing to have your economy based on orange juice.

    wow that's pretty far out there. tourism is a huge part of florida's economy as well

    Its lack of a confiscatory income tax is why millionaires from all over the nation retire there I don't think they have a death tax either. Lots of wealthy retirees bring billions to that state.

    Lots of normal people retire there and a lot of Canadian retirees go to Florida for the winter because it's warm being the main thing then come back to Canada for the summer. It was also a joke but seriously how much of Florida's economy relies on fruit?

    Neither universal health care, nor stand your ground laws are going anywhere.
    I love the NSA. It's like having a secret fan-base you will never see, but they're there, watching everything you write and it makes me feel all warm and fuzzy inside knowing that I may be some person's only form of unconstitutional entertainment one night.

    Niether will be repealed.

    Florida appears to be somewhat a pro-2nd amendment state and pro-self defense. Anti-2nd amendment trash and anti-self defense trash will be ignored.

    Republicans are never going to repeal Obama-care. These talks of repealing it and DOA repeals are nothing more than pillow talk the republicans use to con suckers into voting for them. Just like the Democrats passing the Brady Bill got a lot of republicans elected, but they did not repeal it when Bush had the political capital.
    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    Cicero Marcus Tullius
