I would love to see South Florida become it's own state.

It's ashame that North Florida controls everything about South Florida, and they care LEAST about the area.

Yet they SUCK all the money from South florida in order to maintain the state as a whole.

The people up north simply don't appreciate it, they envy it, and they suck the money out of them.

That is really unfair and I think South Florida would be better off without North Florida redneck politics.

Please, yes.

Let south florida be it's own state, that way we can avoid being grouped together with the rednecks and huge geratric populations further north...oh and the theme parks too.

South florida has it's own american/caribbean/south american vibe that is truly unique in the entire nation. People from all over the world wanna be here, we have the best beaches, the bluest/warmest water, an almost true tropical destination to live.

Dade, broward, Palm Beach, STAND UP!!

Wow ! South Florida people really think a lot of themselves.
Orange county and Hillsborough counties' median ages are younger than palm beach, broward and dade's.
It seems like every time I goto to South Fl I see just as many rednecks as any place in west central Fl. Your beaches definatley aren't nicer. You do have blue water, west coast has emerald water, but I don't think one is any clearer than he other.
I know South Florida people think they are "the big city", but I don't think people from he big northeast cities would be all that impressed.

Here is some of our gross west coast water

What's with all the blatant racist slurs? Racism (oddly enough, mostly against Anglo whites) is why I pulled my business out of Miami.

Exactly, the new Mississippi.
