  • Space, Phoebus call for New Jersey Voter ID law

    By Matt Rooney | The Save Jersey Blog No argument from me on this one, Save Jerseyans. Voter fraud is a real problem and the means of guarding against it are sooo inoffensive that only perpetrators of fraud could complain!  At least a few Garden State politicians agree with me. One week after the U.S. Supreme […]

  • RNC Claims Success in N.J.

    By Matt Rooney | The Save Jersey Blog The RNC held its annual meeting last week, Save Jerseyans, and among other hot topics on the agenda, attendees heard about GOP successes in… New Jersey. Here’s an excerpt from the welcome letter: We tested our Hispanic engagement strategy in the New Jersey gubernatorial election with positive results–winning one county […]

  • Election Day Voting Hijinks Plague GOP

    By Matt Rooney | The Save Jersey Blog Sometimes the margin makes it inconsequential insofar as the final result is concerned, Save Jerseyans, but sloppy, antiquated or in some cases downright corrupt vote tabulation procedures are costing the GOP in close contests. The 2012 presidential election provided its own examples, but you’ve also been following the drama down […]

  • Now It’s Not Racist to Demand ID?

    Democrats Apply Different Standards to Bullets Than Ballots By Irwin M. Fletcher | The Save Jersey Blog (Author’s note: I believe in asking for ID when someone wants to vote and wants to buy a gun to prove that they are who they say they are, and calling out hypocrites and BSers for what they are.) Remember a few […]

  • Voting for Democracy

    Opinion: U.S. Governments Should Do More to Foster Voter Participation By Scott Alexander | The Save Jersey Blog President Obama last night announced the creation of a non-partisan commission to improve the voting experience in America. He tapped Democrat lawyer Bob Bauer and Republican lawyer Ben Ginsgberg to co-chair the commission. I agree that we need to do […]

  • POLL: Americans Worried About Voter Fraud

    An interesting new Monmouth University Poll suggests a strong majority of Americans consider voter fraud to be a problem. The catch? They’re oblivious to it in their own backyards: Just over a third (36%) of registered voters feel that voter fraud is a major problem in the United States and 33% say it is a […]

  • Another Argument for a New Jersey Voter ID Law

    The Texas staffer featured in the video below was reportedly fired by the Democratic National Committee (DNC) earlier this week. Why? Watch: Paging New Jersey legislators! The evidence of a severe problem continues to pile up. Get off of your rear ends, open your eyes/ears, and provide common sense voter id legislation for Garden State voters in […]

  • #FAIL: Voter ID Law Sidelined by PA Court for Election 2012

    Logic be damned, Save Jerseyans! This is politics, and when judges get political, democracy suffers. Moments ago, we learned that the Pennsylvania voter id law is officially off the table for Election 2012. I suppose that’s why the PA Supreme Court remanded; otherwise, they would have just affirmed the original ruling and been done with […]

  • MSM Reports Voter Fraud Story; Does That Mean It’s Real?

    The Mainstream Media (led by The Associated Press) attack voter id law initiatives by claiming that voter fraud is imaginary (even though President Obama’s website has asked supporters to report it?). Other arguments are even dumber; a recent editorial posited that it’s unlikely to occur because of the lengthy prison terms associated with being caught. […]

  • Poll Shows Nearly 75% of Americans Support Voter ID Laws

    Voter ID is quite the hot button issue this year. Democrats across the country claim that it is some diabolical scheme to ensure Republican victory in the fall. Republicans say that it will cut down on people who are not eligible to vote from going to the polls and canceling out legitimate votes. What has […]

  • Paging Republican Legislators… Why Aren’t You Fighting for Voter ID Bills?

    Are you paying attention, Republican legislators? It’s been reported that Assemblycrats John McKeon (the same guy who blames taxpayers for high taxes) and Mila Jasey (a horrible liberal in her own right) will conduct an Essex County presser later today condemning voter ID laws. I guess it’s starting to hit a little close to home for our homegrown liberals, Save Jerseyans, after […]

  • PA Court Upholds Voter ID Law; Now It’s Your Move, NJ Legislature!

    Good news today from across the Delaware River, Save Jerseyans. Pennsylvania Judge Robert E. Simpson issued a 70-page decision denying an application for an injunction against Pennsylvania’s voter ID law. The key part of his ruling? Judge Simpson declared that the ACLU-led petitioners had failed to establish that “disenfranchisement [of PA voters] was immediate or inevitable.” Duh! […]

  • Democrat Vote Reform: Modern or Mistake?

    The New Jersey Senate is likely to take up a few bills some time soon that would make changes to the way that we can vote here in New Jersey. The changes range from subtle to sweeping, but one concern seems rather pervasive throughout. Would they simply open up our already fragile voting system to […]
