On Trusting Democrats


     New Jersey has a record for having produced the most deceitful and utterly corrupt Democrat politicians in the United States. Phil Murphy, though he’s “the next one in the series,” nevertheless seems determined to lower the bar still closer toward unalloyed evil. If New Jerseyans allow him another term, it will only be a confirmation of Mencken’s aphorism:

     Democracy is the theory that the common people know what they want, and deserve to get it good and hard.

     We shall see.
