“Don’t New York my Florida”

“Don’t New York my Florida” is a saying that has been printed on many images. New York is a blue state (Democrat) and Florida is mostly a red state (Republican). The message is that people who move from New York to Florida shouldn’t take their political values with them.
“Don’t NY my Florida…” was posted on Twitter by Vincent on June 4, 2018. “Don’t New York my Florida” was posted on Twitter by Fishin Salty on June 5, 2018. “New t-shirt: ‘Don’t New York my Florida’” was posted on Twitter by ʕ •ᴥ•ʔ on November 21, 2018.
DON’T NEW YORK MY FLORIDA is the name of a website that sells these gift items.
“Don’t California my Texas” and “Don’t Canada my America/Florida/Texas” are similar slogans.

Don’t New York my Florida.
Broward and Palm Beach Counties have turned Blue from people who ran away from high taxes and the nanny state. But vote for people who want to give them high taxes and a nanny state.
Go back to NY and NJ !!!
(And stop telling me how you do it up north)

When they say don’t California my Texas or don’t New York my Florida, they are not talking about fellow patriots. Good luck.

You have heard of the “Don’t NY my Florida”. Too many libs migrating to Florida for the Republicans to handle. Need more Republicans down there.

The sad part is the “moving in ” states are being flooded with liberals and self proclaimed progressives trying to escape the hellholes their ideology and policies created
