I heard that some Broward mayor wants the tri-county area to be its own state. This seems like a good idea, group the worst part of Florida into its own state and let the rest of Florida be. Anyone else heard of this?

if southeast Florida seceded from the rest of the state the rest of Florida would be in deep doo doo economically. Go get Disney to pony up the state's Medicaid geriatric population outside of Miami's metro.

The best part of FL would be happy to get rid of all the rednecks and losers north of Palm Beach County.

I honestly don't think it's a bad idea. Tallahassee leeches from the bottom three counties without giving much in return. SE Florida is different from the rest of the state and has it's own issues. Unfortunately, it would probably mean higher taxes and probably a state income tax for the bottom three because of the way things are done down here...

This is so true, I remember when I went to school in Tally. It came out that the money collected on the 836 toll in Miami, was going towards funding the new roads being built in Tally at the time. Even know I liked driving on the new roads there. I just found it so unfair. The money collected in one county should stay in that county. The people paying should see that money used in their county, not given to another county. If Leon County or any other county needs new roads, then they need to use their own money, and if they don't have the money, then they need to find a way to get the money from their residents (raising taxes, we all know that northern florida has cheaper taxes), not take it from another county.

I wouldn't mind it. South Florida is a whole different ball game compared to the Cracker areas in North Florida.
