The Village Times



Governor of New Jersey


Chris Christie




Issued: July 2013
Statement: We've had our eye on Governor Christie for awhile now. His regular-guy persona makes him a refreshing change of pace from Republican blue bloods like Mitt Romney. And we especially love what he said recently at a governor's conference in Aspen. Chris cast aspersions at libertarianism and reminded us of the certain doom we face should we relax our national security measures.


“The next attack that comes that kills thousands of Americans as a result, people are going to be looking back on the people having this intellectual debate,” Chris warned.


Indeed, when it comes to national security, there is no room for intellectual debate. We're glad to see the potential Republican candidate for president in 2016 embracing the Village position on this and we feel more confident than ever that he is “one of us.” Welcome to the fold, Chris!
