Republican Steve Lonegan is a principle-based conservative who understands and defends the Constitution and basic principles of American liberty. ? ? And for 12 years, he applied those principles to cut borrowing, spending, and taxes –without cutting services –as mayor of Bogota, near Hackensack.
Meanwhile, Lonegan?s Democratic opponent, Cory Booker ran Newark into the ground for 7 years as mayor.?? During that time, he did what most NJ politicians do. ? ?He said and did whatever it took to get elected. ? Then he rewarded himself and the people who got him elected with sweetheart deals, jobs, and contracts at the expense of everyone else.
This election can change the whole country. ? If Lonegan wins here, conservatives can conservative win anywhere in America. ?Liberals will panic. ?Republicans will find their backbones.
But giving just one vote to Lonegan on October 16 is not enough.?? He needs ten.? ??You can deliver at least ten votes without breaking any laws.
In the next nine days?right up until 8PM one week from Wednesday, you can reach at least ten other people and say and do whatever it takes to get them to vote.
I got my 91 year old mom in a nursing home to vote by mail.?? Every day, I go out of my way to start up a conversation with everyone I run into, so I can tell them why it is important to vote for a conservative in the special election one week from Wednesday.
I am talking about this election to my neighbors.??? Even though my kids moved out of New Jersey to get better jobs and avoid high taxes here, I am talking to their friends who stayed in NJ.??? And I am contacting each of my law office clients, even though I never did this before.
And I am posting all this on Facebook, Twitter, a bunch of Patches, and every newspaper letter to the editor and online format I can think of.
This is what the enemies of liberty do to win elections. ? ?And why they win. ? Those of us who love liberty must do the same.
A recent poll said that during the past year, 30% of Americans lost a friendship, a customer, ?or a relationship because of politics.??? I know that this is not easy.?? But our country is worth it.?? I am not asking you to do anything I am not doing.?? Thank you.?? Seth Grossman
