Skip to comments.Every New Jersey conservative should vote on October 16th and stay home on November 5th

Let the moderates and the democrats re-elect Christie.
What? All 2500 of them?
“What? All 2500 of them? “
There are that many?
Every patriotic American should vote in every election. I don’t care if liberals declare November 5 to be NJ abortion day and all go down to Planned Parenthood for the celebration, where they will all take RU-486 even if they’re not pregnant. Decent Americans have to stand for something and vote every time. If the NJ GOP runs a loser, we should still show up. Write in “Sarah Palin” if nothing else, to send a clear message that the problem is the big government leftist candidates selected and not an absence of conservatives.
Agree, It's just that "conservative" amd "NJ" are not usually associated with each other.
Fixed it for you.
Wednesday morning’s dose of defeatism? Aren’t there State representatives and Senators standing for election also? And local positions/judges on the ballot. Any state/local ballot issues?
I never stay home on election day and I live (The People’s Democratic Republic of Maryland) in a worse state, if you can believe it, than New Jersey.
That worked well for Scott Brown of MA.
“What? All 2500 of them?”
I’m sure there’s more than that. I’m in MA and conservatives staying home took out Scott Brown.
And they should do the same in MA rather than vote for another RINO.
Try dose of REALISM. GOA's Kongressional ratings give NJ's Kongressthieves two "A"s out of 12, five "F-" and one "D" out of twelve. Not what you'd call conservative.
I agree. I’m not voting on the 25th. Unless I decide to write somebody in.
“That worked well for Scott Brown of MA.”
Exactly. The worthless, backstabbing selfish politician is now out of office. I left his office blank on my ballot last November and will not be voting for Gomez on the 25th.
I believe Scott Brown took himself out.
By not being a Conservative.
He was a phony.
“I believe Scott Brown took himself out.”
Either way. It’s one less John McCain and Chuck Schumer minion.
Q. What do you call a New Jersey Conservative?
A. a Pennsylvanian
People who proudly give Senate seats back to ultra left wing democrats are idiots.
Haha. That’s a good one!
I don’t remember the last electronic voting machine I used allowing for a write-in.
I was being sarcastic.
Most here probably have no clue what they are, just vote for whoever their friend voted for.
I wasn’t. I’m not voting for a democrat who knew he couldn’t get the democrat nomination so he ran as a republican (a la Bloomberg). For what? To artificially swell Mitch McConnell’s caucus number? And only until he decides, like Specter, Jeffords, Crist, Chafee, Bloomberg, etc. that “the republican party has moved away from me.”
I’m done voting for these types. There’s no point.
is this another...”vote for obammey in the primary” ploy?...because being cute in politics doesn’t seem to be working for us....
No. I’m not suggesting it to be cute. I’m suggesting conservatives vote for a conservative in the republican primary on October 16th and withhold their vote from Chris Christie on November 5th.
Christie has clearly demonstrated that he is not a republican anymore. Why vote for him? Because he has an “r” next to his name?
Let him get reelected by his constituency, moderates and democrats. That’s all he cares about.
stay home on November 5th
Makes sense to me. We’ll sure show them won’t we? That’s what got us Obama and that’s why we’ve lost our country to the radical left. Keep staying home and watch the destruction. And those who stay home can be proud that they support only the purest of the pure. /s
The shoe is precisely on the other foot. The republican establishment, in cooperation with the democrat establishment, keep pushing these worthless moderate loser candidates on us and they they say “well, it’s our guy or nothing!” I’m done playing.
I saw that here in MA just in the last couple of months. There was an election for the head of the republican party. Scott Brown said to republicans of the state that if his person (crony) didn’t get elected, then he wouldn’t run for the special election. Well, he convinced enough dupes and his moderate was elected over a more conservative tea party type and THE NEXT DAY Scott Brown announced that he wasn’t running for the special election. So he got his moderate into a position of power and then said see ya!
Now when the primary was coming up, Mike Sullivan, the conservative, was leading in the polls and Gomez was in third, having contributed to Obama and sucked up to Deval Patrick in a letter. So to prevent a conservative from getting the nomination, the repulican party got all kinds of funding and endorsements for Gomez, led by Scott Brown’s crony. Where if a conservative was head of the party, they would not have supported an obvious democrat.
So now I’m supposed to just vote for Gomez because he’s the “r” on the ballot?? Not happening.
Establishment candidates love moderates and democrats so much, let them struggle to get their votes. They’ve been using consevatives for years to get themselves into office only to backstab and screw us over. The lesser of two evils game is a sham. If Gomez was 75% conservative, I would vote for him. But he’s 75% liberal. Good luck, pal!
Go ahead and flame me, but with all of Christie’s faults, he’s a damn sight better for the state than McGreevey, Corzine or Codey, and he’ll be a hell of a lot better than Buono. We’re not Alabama. We’ll never have a Tea Party conservative as Governor, it’s just not going to happen. So you can mock Jersey all you want, but we’re doing the best we can with what we have.
I’m not mocking Jersey. I live in Massachusetts, for God’s sake!! Christie was elected as a conservative and then turned moderate to liberal. Politicians move with the winds and to where the votes are. If conservatives just support whomever the republican party nominaates, then those votes will be taken for granted. The nominee or incumbent will then go after moderate or democrat votes.
But moderates and democrats like voting for democrats. That’s why they’re moderates and democrats. If conservative support is removed, it gets a lot harder for moderate republicans to be elected and they’ll have to move in a more conservative direction or be removed from office (by their very beloved moderates and democrats).
I want politicians to be more conservative. By just voting for whoever the “r” is, by having their reactionary republican votes secured, they’ll move to the left to get more votes and to get elected.
So I support withholding votes to put political pressure on politicians. Christie wants a blowout reelection. I’d prefer he’d get a closer one so he moves back to the right and less to Obama.
