The same folks who brag about Florida's population growth today will be the ones using it as an excuse for Florida's many problems tomorrow.

You just described Texas to a T

I was thinking of moving there (Florida) to get away from it here (Texas) too

Florida is the only state on this site where many of the locals hate their own state.. every other state on CD you post the slightest criticism and you bashed by every homer in sight. I applaud some of you Florida natives for not being homers but at the same time stick up for your state if you like it. Have some pride in being from Florida. Florida is a great state and it has a lot of offer the USA. People move to Florida from all over the world for a reason, its a great place to live.

Lol you are so right people always make the same lame statements I mean this could be said for anywhere even in places like D.C where on their forum they are saying with it being so expensive even making 100,000 a year is not enough.

I agree I be looking at the Ohio forum I just chuckle sometimes. I don't try to be a homer all the time and take the good with the bad.

Midwest people tried to get me banned from his site for posting construction criticism of their hometowns. I love every US state, I like some states more than others but every state and city has some value. Ups and downs to every place. Florida is a great state. Lot of people seem to hate it but some people love, it seems to be a really polarizing place.
