Governor Christie is not interested in shrinking our gargantuan state government. All he wants to do is pay it’s workers less. If he was truly a conservative, he would be eliminating or privatizing all these agencies and commissions. Anything that any of these entities is doing that happens to be productive and necessary can be done by other departments (and in many cases already is), or by charities, or (shriek!) by private enterprise . Maybe I’m mistaken about one or two of them. But do we need all of this? I thought we were bankrupt. This metastatic growth of government is the reason why we reside in a “failed state”. Really, most of these exist to create patronage jobs and to push socialism under one guise or another. Let’s get rid of them.


UPDATE: I just recieved the Sunday paper. “Conservative” Governor Christie has just added another $3.1 million to the $61.5 million budget to provide “treatment” for ex-cons……oops, I mean “former inmates”.
