THE SAPIENT SPARROW: conservatism for commoners

"What has always made the State a hell on earth has been precisely that man has tried to make it his heaven."–Holderlin



If you stayed up until at least 11 p.m. last night, then you very possibly knew the outcome of the NJ Governor’s election before the POTUS did.  Reportedly, Mr. Obama did not watch the election returns last night, instead opting to watch an HBO special recounting his own victory in the Presidential contest of last year.  (Ahh, come on, that tidbit just begs for comments, doesn’t it?)

During his acceptance speech last night, Governor-elect Christie used the word “tomorrow” as a theme.  He assured us that his administration will immediately begin moving to organize, plan and prepare for its official installation, thus making the transition to governing as smooth as possible.  Responsible and proficient governing is indeed what I look forward to in New Jersey during the Christie tenure.  Therefore, my hope is that the Christie administration uses the next few months to create the strategies necessary to right the “Ship of State” that has been listing badly to port for more than a decade.  We need rapid, positive movement on jobs, taxes, energy (not the green kind), and economic growth.  In addition, I hope that our now Republican-led State will join an increasing number of other states to pass provisions to protect citizens against the negative effects of possible Federal health-care legislation, intervention and mandates.

The sparrows flocked together yesterday, made their voices heard and drove a hungry cat from our garden.  There are other prowling things out there.  Some much worse than a hungry cat.  None are very fond of sparrows, except as fodder.  Our work has only begun.  Mr. Christie articulated that well as he pointed to the tasks that would undertake “tomorrow”.  Now, “tomorrow” is “today”.  We will be watching, Mr. Christie, with high expectations.  Be what we believe you can be for New Jersey.  You may be our last hope.

Congratulations!  May God Bless you and yours.

    Considering that Obama’s campaigning for Corzine had all the energy of a rock band performing at the end of the tour in a way that screams ‘Going through the motions,’ perhaps he wanted to focus on something he considers to be more upbeat…like himself.

    Congrats Christie! Make this state a better place in which to live!
