In the last three days, I have had two calls from President Obama and another from Bill Clinton. I feel so lucky to live in NJ. Can they do something about my property taxes?
Seriously, in case you have been under a rock for the last 3 months there is a nasty battle for governor going on in New Jersey and based on the calls Another Delco Guy is getting, the Dems are running scared. We're registered Independents here, so if the Dems are calling us to come out, then they think we might be on the fence.
Since it's traditionally the Independent vote that gets anyone elected in a New Jersey statewide race, this means something.
It means the Dems are afraid that Jon Corzine and his special interest pals are going down tomorrow to Chris Christie and his corrupt machine politics brethren.
You don't need to read between the lines there, I don't like either of these guys. Jon Crozine inherited a mess and he's managed to make it worse. It;s been gridlock in Trenton, but gridlock is better than where this administration has us headed. There is no GM bailout coming for NJ, so it's time to cut the public employees benefit programs and get spending under control by consolidating services and the state workforce.
Chris Christie? Please. A classic republican insider who has no clue who to govern. It's about power and jobs to this guy and he's going to be part of the problem, not part of the solution. Troubling to me as well is his "Do as I say, not as I do" approach to law enforcement and taxes. Yeah - those ads worked for me.
Chris Daggett? Well, I don't know if he's a republican in sheep's clothing or not. I'm troubled by his recent conversion to the Independent faith, but he's the guy with an actual plan. I have heard the "you're throwing your vote away" argument, but it just doesn't apply here. Daggett is the best candidate with the best experience and ideas. Voting Daggett is not wasting your vote. It's sending a message to Trenton that it's time to change the way business is done in this state ans that the guy to do it is Chris Daggett.
Get out and vote tomorrow. And vote for Chris Daggett.
