Last week, a twitter user by the name of @LakotaMan1 suggested Florida could be rebooted by giving it back to Seminole Nation.

Florida has been in the news a great deal over the last few weeks, for such issues as: eliminating black congressional districts; rejecting certain math books; stripping Disney of its special jurisdictional status; and prohibiting instruction to young children on gender identity. 

Florida is also about to enter another hurricane season, and is dealing with a number of climate and environmental issues, including the mass die-off of manatees; a harmful Big Sugar industry; and red tide

Nearly 31,000 people have liked the tweet so far.

@Thisisjulie66: I was born and raised in Florida and I would be thrilled to see that take place.
