The Villages makes list of boring places tied at #7
Why are there more republicans voting in Florida?
Because the Villages is about 97% retired Northerners with nothing else to do, so they vote as they have always voted in their northern state, republican.
While knowing nothing or next to nothing about our state government and most do not even care, it’s a day out of boredom.
Do any of them care if the rest of the state is stuck with business as usual, No, why should they, this does not affect their money or boring life?
From this perspective, Florida sounds downright exciting.
Of course, we know better. We know that there’s a whole lot more to the state, which includes retirement communities, suburbs, and certainly doesn’t look like Miami Beach.
In short, there’s a lot of boring going on here.
