Pick a time - either standard or daylight savings - and keep it all year. Avoid the twice-yearly time change adjustment.

I think it should be year-round. Total darkness by 4PM is depressing, and it lasts near 4 for several weeks each winter.

I live in Arizona and we don't have a time change. So I think it would be better if no one had them, as it makes it confusing to when calling others who do have time changes. Especially between us and Nevada and California!

Up to each state to decide. I live in AZ and do not change times. Not changing time is an economic one works for us. Just remember it is a state rights issue and not for the central to decide.

I see no purpose in it anymore. Arizona and Hawaii don’t seem to have any issues.

No, make it permanent. It gives families more daylight time in winter.
Commuters more daylight to get from work.
More time to be outside!

The chickens and the cows get up the same time everyday. Farmers and Rancher get up at the same time everyday to do their work. They don't need to change the alarm clocks for any daylight savings changes. Get on real time and keep it there. Our kids don't know what real time is anymore. Mother Nature doesn't change her time either.

The time change is not healthy. Keep daylight savings time all year. It's so much better to have more sunlight later in the day.

Rather than changing our clocks, businesses could opt to have Summer hours, which would accomplish the same thing. If encouraged nationally, it's likely most states would adopt such a plan. But mandates would be inappropriate, and ultimately the decisions should be made by the Governor's and the business owners rather than by the federal government.
I like daylight savings time, but to continue it year round would have children at the bus stop in pitch dark, where they would be vulnerable to all sorts of bad acts.. I would prefer to have adults driving home from work in the dark rather than having that darkness in the am.
