Slightly to the Right in New Jersey

Conservative comments on New Jersey

Card Check elections in New Jersey

Over the past two months, the republican county committees have been holding what they call “county conventions” in order to determine a candidate for governor.   Right now, Chris Christie has been “winning” these elections, in such a manner that one would believe he was the only one running.  Now, we all know that Steve Lonegan is also campaigning for the republican party nomination, but in spite of the fact that he has been running point, on conservative issues, in the state of New Jersey for years, he has not registered but a few votes to be the standard bearer for the party.  One has to ask why?  Well, I finally figured out what is going on, and it is called “CARD CHECK”.

If anyone still remembers the presidential election, one of the items that was a hot ticket item was union card check elections.  This process is one were the voting is open, not secret.  How a person votes would be known to everyone, so persons who might not be voting in the “right way” could be “persuaded” by others.  Of course this process would go against all of the principles that have allowed every person in this country to express their  wants without being open for criticism and ridicule. 

Last night, I spoke to a local republican leader.  During that conversation, he mentioned that the state leadership had questioned him about how he was going to vote in the county convention.  He said that he was not going to tell them that.  He said that was his decision to be made when the time came to cast his vote.  His vote forever would remain secret and he would not be conherced by anyone.  Of course this did not sit well with the state leader and this person was informed that this decision would not be looked on favorably by the other “leaders”.

Card Check elections are wrong at every level and in every situation.  For the Republican leadership  in New Jersey to be running  elections in this manner is not just plain wrong, it is another example of the liberal attitude that permeates the party.  It is about time we took out the trash and returned the Republican party to the conservative roots that have served it so well.
