The Socialist State of New Jersey is probably the most illogically liberal state in the union. Yes, other states like Cali and Vermont are probably further to the left than NJ, but NJ legislators are biggest bunch of idiots on the planet. The dems are hooked into the largest voting block in the state, the teachers and government worker unions and as long as they protect those unions, they'll never get voted out.
So what rouses my angst, you ask. Well, it seems the auto insurers in the state can't make a profit underwriting urban areas, too many stolen cars, too many soneone hit me and fled cases. So what does the legislature want to do. They want every non-urban policyholder to pay a $20 fee per vehicle to create a fund to offset the cost of urban auto insurance. The remainder of the state already foots the bill for urban schools. We're looking at a 20% property tax increase because the governor refuses to cut spending. (Oh, he's willing to close down the state parks though because only one is in a semi urban area behind the capital building which cost $87 million to build last year. ) Road litter crews which once were staffed by the cons for .35 an hour are now staffed by union employees at $20 and hour plus bennies because the union put up a stink.
If you're thinking about coming east, head for PA, DE or even NY, but stay the heck out of this state. I'm counting the days till I'm outta here.
