Christie: The Flabby Corpse of the GOP

Chris Christie Lays Out Argument For 2016 |

BOSTON — New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie laid out his ideas for saving the Republican Party at a gathering of the Republican National Committee on Thursday, in remarks that offered sharp criticism of rival Republicans and a window into his own potential 2016 platform.

The argument for Christie is the same argument one can make for Democrats: More statism, more nannying, more tyranny. But the Democrats already have those arguments cornered.

So why Christie?

Answer: There is no answer. There is no reason to pick him over a Democrat candidate.  He can’t win. And if the Ruling Party GOP faction manages to get him nominated, he won’t win.

About Bill Quick

I am a small-l libertarian. My primary concern is to increase individual liberty as much as possible in the face of statist efforts to restrict it from both the right and the left. If I had to sum up my beliefs as concisely as possible, I would say, "Stay out of my wallet and my bedroom," "your liberty stops at my nose," and "don't tread on me." I will believe that things are taking a turn for the better in America when married gays are able to, and do, maintain large arsenals of automatic weapons, and tax collectors are, and do, not.
