What do you think, Blue Jersey? – promoted by Rosi
There is no question our political parties have failed us. They perpetuate policies in place that have continued to result in the highest property taxes in the nation, no foreseeable increases in the job market for the average worker, and an escalation of health and insurance costs.
It is no wonder that citizen anger has fueled the Tea Party movement, which boasts support from citizens across the state. The current “republican-favored” Tea Party holds three principles: 1) the constitution is to be strictly interpreted as the blueprint for good government; 2) in a free society, actions should have consequences; and 3) the bureaucracy is too big to succeed.
All of us can agree with any one of the components. After all, our U.S. Constitution was formed, “in Order to form a more perfect Union,” not to maintain the “status quo.” As Thomas Jefferson once noted, “Institutions must advance to keep pace with the time.” In this sense, many agree there is a need to constantly reevaluate our challenges, but we often disagree on the how.
