Chris Christie Rocks Again!!

The Democrat-controlled New Jersey legislature is very fond of raising taxes. So much so they have 115 tax increases over the past 8 years.

That was fine when Jon Corzine was in charge. But there's a new sheriff in town.

Gov. Chris Christie took over a state that was in serious financial trouble, thanks to years of Democrat spending. Christie is a no-nonsense, all common sense conservative. He is plainspoken and has made it known that he intends to reign in out-of-control spending.

Someone should have explained that to the New Jersey legislature in very simple, remedial terms. They passed A-10, called the "millionaire tax," which would raise taxes on successful businesses and individuals. Typical liberal wealth redistribution.

When A-10 arrived on Gov. Christie's desk, not only did he veto it, he sent a message back to the legislature saying he would not repeat the failed, irresponsible, unsustainable fiscal policies of the past.

Bravo Gov. Christie! Keep it up and you might see the White House from the Oval Office some day.

Why is it that you are so strictly against wealth redistribution? I am happy to pay my taxes so that people who have virtually nothing can study, can use public health care etc. That is just and will foster the unity of the nation. Government that does not support it's citizens and allows gap between the rich and the poor to widen is an unjust one and will eventually collide and face revolution someway or another.

To Anthon: You asked why I am against wealth redistribution. Well, it's very simple. Wealth redistribution is nothing more than legalized theft. If money or property belongs to you, and you obtained it legally, no one should have the right to take it from you. Period. How would you like it if I saw you on the street and forcibly took $100 from you to give to someone else who was too lazy to work? It's a completely different story when it's your money being taken. Don't be so eager to give other people's money away.
