Time - if one becomes permanent would you want daylight or standard time? Poll [View all]

Hope that makes sense. Many folks are squawking about the twice a year changes in our time. Some states are actually moving to do something - Florida for instance is looking to go to permanent daylight time.

So if someday we decide to quit changing the clock, would you want the permanent time to be daylight or standard? One or the other, no alternatives. Tell us why if you want.

As for me I am for standard time forever.
