Slightly to the Right in New Jersey

Conservative comments on New Jersey

A True Judas, Mike Halfacre

Mayor Mike Halfacre of Fair Haven, NJ, a small piss ant community in Monmouth County, today came out and endorsed Chris “Cupcake” Christie for the Republican nominationfor governor.  This in spite of his claim to be a Steve Lonegan supporter.  His excuse is that Steve is not “electable”.  Most likely this change of position has more to do with his rumored run for the US House of Representatives in 2010, than any true belief that the Cupcake is deserving of the nomination.  The following is my response to Halfacre’s endorsement statement:

 

Mike Halfacre, paraphrasing a line made famous by Lloyd Bentsen, “I knew Ronald Reagan, and sir, Chris Christie is no Ronald Reagan”.  Ronald Reagan was a man of principle, which you have proven, in this statement to be devoid of.  Conservatives might disagree on execution, but never do they compromise on principle.

 

Let’s set a few facts straight, the Republican Party in New Jerseyis infested with RINOs.  One only has to look at the past three republican governors of this state to see what the leadership of the party considers “worthy” candidates.  But, when the first time in forty (40) year the party could have tried to elect a true conservative, we saw exactly how the leadership of the party responded in 2001.  Rather than closing around and devoting all possible resources to insuring the election of Bret D. Schundler, the leadership chooses to take their ball and go home.  What an outstanding example of “rallying the party”.

 

Chris Christie’s positions in 1994 very much have to be considered in determining if he is worthy of being the candidate for governor, of the Republican Party.  What should we judge his character on sir?  His history of be a candidate in this state is in the time period of 1994 in which case his party affiliation was one of convenience not principle. Judging him based on his past history, instead of trying to compare him to Ronald Reagan, a comparison to New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg would be more appropriate.

 

A fair amount of your endorsement statement covers the “positions” that Chris Christie has taken on the issues.  The common word on all of the issues is promise.  Sir, my I ask a question, where is the word accomplished? Except for his accomplishments in the area of corruption, he does not have any accomplishments in the areas you mention.

 

In the one area that he has accomplishments, corruption, he is a very qualified prosecutor, but sir, how does this qualify him for governor?  Unless he plans to directly control the Office of the Attorney General of the state, it does not really matter. As far as crime fighting, since he was a federal prosecutor, we have to evaluate his enforcement of the laws at a federal level.  Let’s start with illegal immigration.  Christie had one of the poorest records on prosecution of illegal immigrants; between 2002 and 2007, Mr. Christie’s office caught and deported all of 13 illegal immigrants.  This record can only be called abysmal.  In a state where it has been conservatively estimated that 500,000 illegal immigrants reside (6% of the current population of the state), he could only find 13?   In a state were we have cities declaring that they are “sanctuary” cities.     

 

How about his record on the civil rights?  How about his record on the first amendment?  How about defending citizens who are peacefully protesting their governments’ proposals as the constitution of this great country guarantees?  I think you know where I am heading with this, so I will go no further except to say Christie’s silence spoke volumes on the subject.

 

One thing that a person can never have enough of sir is principles.  Once one starts to compromise on them, one will always find it very easy to just say; “Just this one time”.  Soon this attitude becomes, “we had to do it this way”.  Finally we wind up with the classic, “it was all we could do”.  No, this is why one can never steer from the true path of ones convictions.  The argument that “it is the reality of winning elections” is not just lame, but shows how the Republican Party is not raising to the challenge of this election in the belief it can offer the citizens a better government, but lowering itself to the level of the opposition in the hopes it can at least meet the mediocrity of the Democratic Party.  What a sorry excuse for favoring one candidate over another.

 

Steve Lonegan has been the only voice in the New Jersey Republican Party that has over the last eight years maintained the high principles of conservative reason that Ronald Reagan and Barry Goldwater held so dear.  He never compromised on those principles in his many confrontations with those politicians who wished to impose their “ideals” on the citizens of this state.  It was also very convenient for most of the elected leadership of the Republican Party in the state to coattail themselves to his leadership.  His victories against the current governor of this state reflect the fact that people will back him.  This is obviously a fact that both you and leadership of the party have either overlooked or are afraid of.  The old, “damn he was right, and we were wrong”!

 

In conclusion, winning with Chris Christie will not be winning; it will be nothing more than another compromise.  As far as you being a “Lonegan Shill”, don’t worry about it, we won’t pin that label on you anymore, promise.  Of course, in reflection, the name Judas does have a nice ring.
