Luis Miguel is hardcore.

New York Post:

A Republican Florida state House candidate who wants to legalize shooting federal agents said Friday that he has been banned from Twitter after posting his platform on the social network.

Republican Luis Miguel told Florida Politics on Friday that he received a message from Twitter informing him of his permanent suspension.

Under my plan, all Floridians will be able to shoot FBI, IRS, ATF, and all other federal troops on sight,” Miguel wrote in his tweet, which was screencapped by Miami-based filmmaker Billy Corben. “Let freedom ring.”

Miguel told Florida Politics that he stands by his statement, saying that such violence is justified because the IRS has been “weaponized by dissident forces.”

Miguel is running in an open primary in Florida’s recently redrawn 20th district, a predominately Republican area nestled between Gainesville and St. Augustine. He will square off against incumbent Rep. Bobby Payne of Palatka in the Aug. 23 primary.

I wonder if a state could really legalize shooting federal agents if they trespass on private property?

I’m not a Constitutional scholar, but just based on what I know, I think it would be legal.

The problem is that states rely so much on federal funding. But what a governor could try to do is divert all federal taxes if federal funding was cut. They could tell people in the state that paying federal income tax is illegal, and that all taxes are now being diverted to the state government.

If DeSantis was the real deal, he would be moving to make Florida an autonomous republic instead of looking toward the White House. Governors have a lot more power than presidents.
