Why the closed county conventions?

Author: Rory B. Bellows

I never understood why the establishment in New Jersey is still the establishment? Sure there are talented, hard working Republicans who count as party establishment, but what have they done? The GOP establishment has presided over 7 years of electoral disaster in our state and now they are trying to rig the GOP Gubernatorial Primary by forcing Chris Christie down our throats. Maybe Chris Christie is the goods. He very well might be the cure for all that ails New Jersey and the down trodden state GOP. But we don’t know that right now. And we’ll never know it because he is being gifted the nomination by attempts by the party to submarine any competition. We don’t know what he stands for. We don’t know how he will hold up under the daily grind of a campaign. He hasn’t run for office in quite some time and he has lost more elections than he has won.

Chris Christie would benefit from a competitive primary. I don’t think anyone would argue that Chairman Obama was a stronger candidate for the general election last November by virtue of having to go head to head with the Clintons over the course of a seemingly endless primary campaign. Competition is good. It’s good for business, the deserving are rewarded and the undeserving are punished, and it will be good for the New Jersey Republican Party.

    The Star Ledger’s endorsement of Chris Daggett is great news. I wish the republicans would stop the Bush/Rove Fear mongering. There is obviously a consensus that a vote for Daggett is not a vote for Corzine, except among those who use mass psychological terror to promote their own agendas.

    Daggett is the only viable candidate and there are many of this who are voting for him because we know he can win and is the only candidate who can change this state. The Star Ledger’s endorsement echoes and re-affirms that Daggett is a viable candidate and can win.

    Facts are facts and I don’t know how you can ignore them.

    Furthermore, Daggett is now polling at 18% and there even rumors on that NYC Mayor Micheal Bloomberg will endorse Daggett. If Still think Daggett Can’t win then read this to find out why your wrong. 11 Years ago Jesse Ventura was polling in the low teens, much lower than Daggett just three weeks before the election and he won.

    I say no to Chris Christie because

    The Chris Christie mafia connections.
    Christie’s multiple multi-million dollar bribe scandals.
    Illegal campaign finance by Christie and Corzine.
    Voting for the lesser of two evils is still a vote for evil.
    The Chris Christie style of justice..

    I can go on and on about both Chris Christie and Jon Corzine. The skyrocketing cost of living, the Exodus of jobs, residents, business and income from the state, corrupt politicians from my local municipality, to the county court house, to Trenton all the way to Washington.

    That’s why I refuse to vote Corzine or Christie. I am Voting Chris Daggett and so should you

    Only voter’s have the power to change the government. We must refuse to be held captive to the broken two-party system that has brought a plaque of scandal and corruption into our government by fear of voting for a third party. Its time to send a message to politicians in NJ and all across the country. Its time to end politics as usual.

    Even if your not from NJ you can still cyber volunteer.
