Florida cracks down on Big Tech censorship

Hooray for Governor Ron DeSantis.  Florida is joining Poland in taking strong action against censorship by leftwing Big Tech companies like Facebook, Twitter, and Google.  Governor DeSantis outlined the measures that Floria will take to protect the free speech of its citizens:
- allow citizens to sue Big Tech companies if they are victims of censorship
- mandatory opt-outs for users on Big Tech's content filters
- allow state AG to sue Big Tech for censorship under Unfair Business Practices Act
- disclosure requirements under election law for Big Tech that favors certain candidates
- daily fines for deliberate prioritization or suppression of political candidates or causes
- $100,000 per day fines for suspension of a candidate for public office from a platform
Governor deSantis is presenting this legislative package to Florida's Republican controlled General Assembly.
Poland's government has put forward a legislative package that would create a special court that could order a Big Tech company to restore censored speech of Polish citizens that does not violate Polish law, and if the Big Tech company does not obey the order to restore the speech, then it would be fined a million euros per day per occurrence.
