Corzine Predictions

Jon Corzine is currently leading Doug Forrester by eight points, the most recent polls show.

However, it's time for Republicans to decide what issues Doug Forrester is going to win on, because property taxes alone aren't putting their candidate anywhere near victory. What issue could sway New Jersey moderates to the conservative side?

Really? The ledger reported that the margin was 44 - 38 + or - 4. Additionally, a marrist poll link has them even.

It depends on the poll, and if you include the likely voters or all voters. Unfortunately, there's no way to exclude the people who stay home on election day because it might rain and something halfway decent is bound to come on TV. These people piss me off.

I agree with Sharon on this one -- those who can't be bothered to vote every time there's an election should be taken out and spanked, in the public square. They should also be forbidden from showing up at public meetings to complain about anything.

Good idea Ken. I think Sadam Hussein had a similar policy when he ruled Iraq. It was so popular that he got 100% of the vote.

Actually, his policy was to simply claim that "everyone voted, and they all chose me!"

We have responsibilities that come along with our rights. We as a society have been extremely lax in enforcing the exercise of those responsibilities. I think its time we tightened things up.

Are you suggesting that the government force people to vote?

No, I'm suggesting that society, not government, should set expectations on its members. We should provide both incentives to vote, and disincentives for lack of participation in the political process. There should be consequences for failure to exercise a civic responsibility, just as there are consequences for failure to execute a legal responsibility.
But then, I'm just a right-wing nutjob, so who's going to listen to me?

I agree with Ken, the conservative outlook has the right idea when it comes to responsibility, we should expect more from people, it goes along with their stance on government: THEY WANT IT BIG, it terms of power at least, lefties want it small, restricted, beholden to the people. I believe that is the grossest misconception in polotics today, right = small gov; left = large. That is like measureing cities by their acreage as opposed to population (e.g., new york would be tiny). It should be measured in terms of civil liberties and services provided. Nevertheless, everyone is ultimately responsible for their own behavior, naturally

Good point. It's at least true today.
