Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis has a new pledge for his plans for the federal government if he were to become president and they are grand, indeed. He wants to get rid of some of the unconstitutional departments that conservatives have targeted for decades.

DeSantis has been struggling to get attention in this current election cycle, though he has picked up several key endorsements, has had success at fundraising, and seems to be the second-most favorite candidate for the GOP nomination — though often quite a bit behind Donald Trump.

This new pledge, though, should cause many conservatives to give him a thumbs up.

“I’m going to use those agencies to push back against woke ideology and against the leftism that we see creeping into all institutions of American life,” DeSantis said.

Per Breitbart News:

After DeSantis said he would “bring major accountability to the DOJ, to the FBI, IRS.” Host Martha MacCallum asked, “Are you in favor of eliminating any agencies? I know conservatives in the past have talked about closing the Department of Education. Would you do that?”

DeSantis answered, “So, we would do Education, we would do Commerce, we’d do Energy, and we would do IRS. And so, if Congress will work with me on doing that, we’ll be able to reduce the size and scope of government.”

He continued, “But what I’m also going to do, Martha, is be prepared if Congress won’t go that far, I’m going to use those agencies to push back against woke ideology and against the leftism that we see creeping into all institutions of American life. So, for example, with the Department of Education, we reverse all the transgender sports stuff, women’s sports should be protected. We reverse policies trying to inject the curriculum into our schools. That will all be gone. We will make sure we have an accreditation system for higher ed., which is not trying to foment more things like DEI and CRT. So, we’ll be prepared to do both. Either way, it’ll be a win for conservatives.”

OK. This is all good stuff.

But, it’s easier said than done, for sure.
