Slightly to the Right in New Jersey

Conservative comments on New Jersey

New Jersey number one again!

An article in the Wall Street on Monday discussed property tax rates.  In the article, was a small chart that listed the states with the highest property taxes as a share of income.  Guess which state was number one?  Give up?  Well, once again the State of New Jersey leads the nation!  With a median property tax of $6,082.00, taxes as a percentage of income are 7.1%!  Now get this, the next state on the list is New Hampshire at 6.0% ($4,390.00 median property tax).  Well, the good people of New Hampshire are almost in revolution state over this, even though they do not have any income tax, sales tax, and their total tax burden on a state level rates them as the fifth lowest in the country.  Heck, if they are mad in New Hampshire over their property taxes, the citizens of New Jersey should be ballistic at their property tax load!  It’s about time that the citizens of New Jersey start to get out the torches, get the tar nice and hot, load up on plenty of feathers and show these tax and spend idiots that we will not take it any more!

For all the idiots at every level of government in New Jersey, “IT’S TAXES, STUPID!”

Lonegan for Governor

On December 1st, I had the privilege of being present when Steve Lonegan announced his candidacy for governor of New Jersey on the Republican ticket.  Steve is well known in the state for being a Reagan Republican of the highest degree.  He has never changed on his platform of minimum government and lower tax rates to insure that the citizens of New Jersey have the highest living standards possible.

Although I agree with Steve on the matter of less government and lower taxes, I do feel that one more item has to be included in his platform to insure that all of the citizens of New Jersey will benefit from his future term as governor of this state.  This last platform item which would complete a triad of issues, is namely crime and it’s effect on the urban areas of this state.  The inner cities of New Jersey are at a critical state in terms of crime and it’s impact on the residents of these areas. 

Ronald Reagan, in 1980 ran on the premise of smaller government, lower taxes and national defense.  His wisdom to confront the communists, while trying to reduce government spending and programs should serve as a blueprint for any conservative running for office in this day and age.  Steve Lonegan would be wise to look at the situation that is present in our inner cities, namely the influx of criminal gangs and the terrorist effect that they have on these areas.  He should pledge to, on day one of his administration, to declare these gangs terrorist organizations and treat them as we would treat Al-Qaeda, Hamas, Hezbollah or any of the other foreign terrorist scum that currently breed in this world.  These domestic terrorists should be arrested under the Patriot  Act and interned at a base like Fort Dix.  We cannot let any of the citizens of New Jersey be terrorized any place in New Jersey.  If we want to see New Jersey flourish again, we must make sure that our cities are positioned to share in the results.  By attacking and destroying this cancer known as gangs that vision can be insured.

Steve Lonegan has my total backing to be the next governor of what will again be the great State of New Jersey.  But until then, for all of the idiots in Trenton, “IT’S TAXES, STUPID!”
