Christie’s Social Security reform hurts America, particularly minorities

Some are touting New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie’s proposal to take an ax to Social Security as an act of bold political leadership. Sorry, I see the opposite. America needs leadership to replace old dysfunctional baggage with new programs and ideas fitting for a free 21st-century country.

Bridging The Divide Between Left And Right

The liberals and moderates who make up the establishment core of the Republican Party should take notice. Your liberality, your moderation, will not protect you from the fangs of the left. They will tear you apart — when it suits their purpose — regardless of your support for their agenda.

Political means don’t achieve moral ends

Despite our obsession with political systems and processes, the quality of our lives ultimately flows from the behavior of individual human beings and not from any meticulously designed political system. The best any political system can do is to assure political freedom. But it cannot assure what individuals choose to do with their freedom and the values that will define their lives.

What Chris Christie and Ron Paul Have in Common

Former Republican Congressman Joe Scarborough thinks that what ails the GOP is not nominating leftist candidates like Chris Christie. Black Republican strategist, Raynard Jackson also wrote an article heralding Christie’s landslide win in a Blue State as the rubric for the GOP, while shaming Cuccinelli’s loss in Virginia as a sign that the party should turn away from conservative & Tea Party values that brought the party back from the dead in 2010.

Chris Christie is no presidential contender

If the last two presidential elections tell us anything, it’s that Republicans don’t succeed with candidates who lack clear vision and conviction consistent with the party’s conservative platform. Given this, I understand why Democrats think that New Jersey governor Chris Christie should be a leading contender for the 2016 Republican presidential nomination. But why would any Republican see a typical political operative like Christie as presidential material?

Was the GOP Chris Christie Win Actually a Loss?

Last night, “moderate” Chris Christie won in New Jersey, while conservative Ken Cuccinelli lost in Virginia. Strategically this has major implications for these professional Republican operatives who have already publicly declared war on their Party’s political base.

‘Gay’ Lawmaker to Christians: ‘We’ll Take Your Children’

Few people doubt that New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie hopes to become president in 2016. Unfortunately for him, he may have just signed away any chance of that. Last week, Christie signed A3371, a draconian piece of legislation that bars licensed therapists from helping children overcome unwanted same-sex attractions, behavior or identity even when – as is so often the case – those same-sex attractions arise from childhood sexual abuse by the likes of a Jerry Sandusky.
