As other politicians point in any direction searching for the cause of America’s problems, Ron DeSantis points to the family and fatherlessness as the main issue. “If you look at all the different problems society could deal with, a huge number of them are rooted in kids growing up without having a father in the home,” DeSantis said. “Part of it is sending a message. Men, meet your responsibilities. You have a responsibility,” the governor added.
