Mr. Christie, let me talk directly to the widows and orphans ...
Along time ago is a region of the world known as New Jersey, there were a people that understood and believed in a principle called 'An Appeal to Heaven'. This principle changed the course of history, for out of it a peoples declared before the world and God that they were free men and that they were setting up a government that derived its powers from the consent of the governed. Although the principle of 'An Appeal to Heaven" produced the noble results of liberty and freedom, it most assuredly came from a spirit of frustration and aggravation. As it is natural for men to endure much suffering before they react to cast off the chains of oppression, when that day comes, to the powers that are exerting the oppression see those who stand to fight as terrorists.
Let's move forward to a time where the world has seen a great and terrible war, one that covered almost every region of this great expanse. In the aftermath, a once just nation made the decision to change its course, she decided to pursue wars of interest and intrigue, of individual avarice, envy and ambition which assume the colors and usurp the standard of freedom. Instead of being the standard of freedom and the well wisher to independence for all, she instead decided to go abroad in search of monsters to destroy.
Now fast forward a couple decades later to a place know as New York, the frustrations and aggravations of a peoples, who had no means of redress, saw them make a final appeal to heaven. Although their position might have been justified and carried merit, they killed many innocent people as a result of their actions. What befell the world and that once just nation was mighty and terrible. The actions of the few, stirred and inflamed the passions of the beast, even to the point where she set her eyes upon her own people.
What Christie falls to see is our nation is lost, it would serve him well to read Washington's farewell address.
*** If I hadn't been limited to 1500 characters, I would have also pointed him toward John Quincy Adams' speeches, I love his dictress of the world speech. ***
