Slightly to the Right in New Jersey

Chris Christie, from nothing to 53 ways now to fix New Jersey!

Just when I thought it was safe, I found out Chris Christie has added another two ways to fix New Jersey.  This is amazing that a person who had NO ideas or plans just a few months ago, now has 53 ways.  I guess he is staying up nights thinking them up.  Of course this would explain his ducking opportunitiesto debate Steve Lonegan, he is just too tired!  Anyway, let’s take a look at the latest two ways that Chris Christie is going to fix New Jersey:

  • 52. I will increase the transparency required of candidates seeking office by making the State’s currently inadequate Personal Financial Disclosure Statements match the same heightened level of transparency as their federal counterpart, which will provide voters with a more detailed, comprehensive look at those on the ballot.  When I hear statements like this, I think I am listening to a socialist.  What does the PERSONAL financial information of a candidate have to be made public?  Certain things in this country should be kept a secret and  personal information is one of those items.  If a candidate wants to make their financial information public, that is their decision, but it should not be mandatory.  I cannot believe that any voter is going to choose a particular candidate by what he or she is worth.  Hopefully, they will make that decision after learning through debates and direct questioning the candidates positions on the issues.  This is not a way to fix New Jersey, this is a way to make it a more socialist state.  Of course, Christie makes this promise, but only the assembly and senate can make this a law. 
  • 53. I will allow voters the opportunity to access candidates’ Personal Financial Disclosure Statements online. Currently, these Statements can only be accessed in person, in Trenton. I’ve already proactively posted my Statement on this website to allow you the opportunity to view my financial background.   Again, why does Christie want to invade the privacy of a person?  Why does he think that a person should give up their rights, just because they want to run for public office?  If this is his position, it sure seems that he is more of a socialist than a republican.  It is one thing to know if a current elected official might have conflicts of interest regarding state business and their personal finances.  It is totally different for a person seeking office to have to disclose personal and private information.  Come on Chris, just because you don’t mind posting your private information, don’t think that others should have to give up their rights.  One other thing, he can’t make this happen, but would have to have the assembly and senate pass a law to make it a requirement. 

Well, those are the latest fixes from Christie.  I guess he now thinks that one has to give up their rights to privacy in order to run for public office.  What a sad day it will be in New Jersey if this ever comes to pass.  It seems that we are now seeing the true Chris Christie, liberal socialist, rather than a conservative republican!


Hey Chris, while you are pushing your socialist ideas don’t forget the number one item in New Jersey; “IT’S TAXES, STUPID”!

More Cupcakes then you would find at a Dunkin’ Donuts!

As part of the Christie campaign’s 30 Days of Good News Tour, it was announced that state Senator Joe Kyrillos will Chair the campaign’s State Leadership Team.  Kyrillos will chair a committee consisting of the entire House Republican congregation except Congressman Scott Garrett.  Other notables on the team include state Senators Kean, Beck and Baroni.  Other than Congressman LoBiondo, the only other South Jersey member is Atlantic County Executive Dennis Levinson. 

Someone once told me that a candidate is only as good as the group of people he surrounds himself with.  Well, it looks as if Christie is on his way to the diabetic ward.

The complete list of cupcakes follows: 

State Senator Joe Kyrillos, Congressman Rodney Frelinghuysen, Congressman Leonard Lance, Congressman Frank LoBiondo, Congressman Chris Smith, Former Congressman Mike Ferguson, State Senator Tom Kean, Jr., State Senator Bill Baroni, State Senator Jen Beck, State Senator Gerry Cardinale, State Senator Andrew Ciesla, Assembly Minority Leader Alex DeCroce, Assemblyman Jay Webber, Atlantic County Executive Dennis Levinson, and Bergen County Clerk Kathleen Donovan
