Chris Christie: The Voice of a Progressive Tyrant

Chris Christie: Rand Paul ‘dangerous’

New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie is ripping libertarians — including Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) — for challenging government surveillance programs and failing to understand the dangers of terrorism.

Apparently, Christie deserves neither liberty nor security:

They who can give up essential liberty to obtain a little temporary safety, deserve neither liberty nor safety.
–Benjamin Franklin

What we really have here is another manifestation of the Progressive notion of “The moral equivalent to war.”  In their early days, Progressives noticed the People will “sacrifice” to support and win a war.  This sacrifice included not only material necessities and comfort, but also their rights and liberties.  Getting the people to willingly surrender control to the government is a Progressives utopian dream, but the Progressives also claimed they didn’t want the horrors of war.  This public opposition to war left them looking for something that would have the moral equivalent to war: a cause for which the People would sacrifice without the supposed horrors of actual war.

There have been many examples since this idea first gestated in the Progressive mind.  The “War on Poverty” is one example.  In fact, if you listen, you will notice the Left is always declaring some sort of “War on this” or “War on that.”  This is where that language comes from, but it is also the driving force behind “Global Warming.”  You see, whereas a “War on Poverty” only has national application, a “War on Warming” has global application.  So does the supposed “War on Terror.”  It can be applied globally, and this is why Christie is trying to do: use the fear of terrorism to justify the surrender/seizure of our individual rights and liberty.

Those who know and understand history will realize that Christie is the true terrorist here.  He is committing subversion, violating his oath of office and is treading on borderline treason. This man should never win another election or serve in any public position as long as he lives.
