In an election year such as this, there is a sense in the air that the 2012 elections could be the most important ever. However, it is not for the reasons the Republican and Democratic establishments like to tell us. Whether Obama is reelected or Romney successfully makes him a one term President, whether current majorities in the House and Senate remain, one chamber changes parties, or they reverse, the way of DC will remain the same. Authoritarian, top-down rule will be the name of the game.
So why is this year so important? Why shouldn’t we miss the debates? Because I’m not talking about the Presidential debates, even the third party ones that allow some discussion outside the “acceptable spectrum” as Tom Woods has called it. We also have local debates and elections. County and municipal elections will be occurring throughout New Jersey, and we need a major change, starting as locally as possible.
I personally will be attending the South Plainfield Borough Council debates.Details
