So, it’s the night of nights where the political junkies like myself indulge in their version of the Superbowl awaiting the results of diving into their civic duty of voting. Today, I voted for the first time a Third party Candidate for such a major position for Governor. I figure a) Chris Christie is going to win anyways and b) it’s high time I voted for Third Party. The Third Party candidate in question was Libertarian Ken Kaplan. I mean, why not? Why not break the mould and vote for someone who has principle as opposed to someone without like Chris Christie and Barbara Buono. However, the rest I voted straight down Republican since I had no clue who, if there were any, the Third Party candidates were. I voted No on Question 2 which was the amending of the NJ state constitution to force businesses to pay minimum wage. So, I’m curious as to the destiny of this Public Question. I’m sure it’ll pass though. That’s how this state of New Jersey is.
In Virginia, the race for governor is between Cuccinelli and McAuliffe. That should be an interesting contest as well. At the time of this writing Cuccinelli is in the lead with 54.65% and McAuliffe with 37.17. It’s not over yet, though so it can swing drastically in favor of McAuliffe.
Middlesex County in New Jersey shows a tight race between Christie (5,589) and Buono (5,041). Buono is from Metuchen, which is in Middlesex County, and has represented the 18th District (East Brunswick, Edison, Helmetta, Metuchen, South Plainfield, South RIver and Spotswood) in the State Senate since 2002. Like with any election it could swing dramatically from one candidate to the other.
Back to Virginia, the precinct reporting are 20% with Cuccinelli still in the lead with 52.38% and McAuliffe with 39.97%. Quite amazing watching the numbers ebb and flow like a tide in a lake. Love it or hate it, it is fun to watch our system of government at play on Election Day.
DeBlasio is a joke, so to even waste time on this communist is worthless. That’s my reason for not even bothering with this Mad Hatter of a politician. I figure if you think that Bloomberg was bad with his attempt at Draconian Laws against soft drinks I don’t believe you’ve seen anything yet once this jackboot communist DeBlasio steps to the seat of power in NYC.
To those who voted in favor of minimum wage in New Jersey, when you see jobs leaving the state and/or the prices of commodities and other goods going up, blame yourselves because this is what happens when you go with emotion rather than logic. This is the legacy that minimum wage produces. Just mark this day on your calendar and remember, remember the 5th of November where Liberals and Socialists voted via their emotions and not logic.
In New Jersey there’s a lot of talk about this election being possibly historic with Christie theoretically getting about 50% or more of the votes. I doubt this will happen because he has simply pissed off a lot of people ranging from teachers unions to even the GOP. And with his backing down on gay marriage he’ll probably lose a lot of the Conservative vote despite him recently stating he’s a Conservative, not a moderate. I could be wrong, but I just don’t see it being a historical day.
The issue of secession is being toyed with by the more rural areas of Colorado with even a county wanting to join Wyoming due to the city Liberal elite and their heavy handed approach of governing in Colorado. This will be interesting despite the fact nothing will probably happen it’s simply the principle of the matter that will be important. Stating simply that people are so damn tired of the tyrannical zeal of the Liberals that they would rather become a separate entity altogether rather than deal with the crappy hand they were delivered.
Back in Virginia with 32% of the precincts reporting in Cuccinelli is at 51.05% and McAuliffe is at 41.57%. Pretty tight race, but still too hard to call yet.
CNN Just declared Christie the winner, no surprise there. Polls closed, bitches! Let’s see how this all goes!
The idea of Chris Christie running for President in 2016 just seems ludicrous and desperate in my opinion.
Associated Press is saying Chris Christie Crushes Barbara Buono. Funny, wonder if that was a jab at Christies girth. Like I’ve stated, not surprising that he won. Now I’m wondering by how much. Will it be historic or hype?
In other NJ election news, Sweeney looks like he’ll win again for State Senate with 1,954 votes, so far, over Niki Trunk who has 1,309 at this time.
With 45% of precincts reporting in in Virginia, it might be safe to say that Cuccinelli has Virginia in his grasp with 50.05% and McAuliffe at 42.62% of the votes.
Far, far away in a Land known as Virginia 56% precincts are reporting in with Cuccinelli down to 49.05% and McAuliffe up at 43.69%.
I guess for Christie to argue with public teachers during a campaign stop in Somers Point and still win just shows how much of a bunch of assholes us New Jerseyians are. “Hey, fuck it, he says some crazy shit and yells at people, but man he’s one of us!” Be an asshole and you too can be a Governor!
LIVE UPDATES on NJ.com are annoying at best with some counties not even showing up yet. I wish it was setup like they usually are for Presidential Elections.
Have to wonder how Christie won a die-hard Blue State when he’s been a bully towards teachers unions. Was it his rubbing elbows with Obama after Hurricane Sandy and snubbing of Romney? Or something else? Maybe the unaffiliated, who outnumber the Republicans and Democrats, are simply swinging Right? Who knows. Maybe we’ll see Christie unleash his girth like a Sumo Wrestler in the coming years.
Hey VA! With 68% of the precincts reporting, Cuccinelli 47.52% and McAuliffe 45.22%…damned dead heat. I think Cuccinelli will still win with a point ahead and no more.
Well, I’m bored of this. Goodnight and good luck, America!
