What a hateful, nasty think to say.

You're no better than a klansman.

You're definitely today's typical Stalinist progressive, that's for sure.

Please don't go all yellow and delete your post. Proudly keep it out there.

My gas price number was the national average, not NJ. And it was in response to another poster blaming Obama for $4 gas.

Like any commodity, it’s supply and demand. Policy can influence it somewhat, such as enforcing high fuel efficiency standards and offering more public transportation options to reduce demand. So do private sector innovations like electric vehicles and even the lithium ion technology that has now made its way to tools like lawn mowers and snow blowers. All contribute to lowering demand and price.

Increased fuel production increases supply, all else equal also lowering price. So policy does matter to an extent on both ends of supply and demand, but it’s not everything either. Just some of many factors.

Got it.

I'm still wrapping my head around someone's gleeful wish for murder. Over politics.

Sick, like the violent, progressive antifa types.

Of course, if a few a them got plugged while assaulting innocent citizens I might .

Just realize how foolish you look.
I lived in South Jersey for over 40 years and my sister still lives there. How long have you lived there? I made up nothing and said nothing that depends on media.

Even Salem County has been kind of swing in Presidential elections. They voted for Clinton in 1996, Gore in 2000, and twice for Obama. Cape May County is the only one that has consistently voted Republican in election after election in recent history. South Jersey is overall Democrat. Now is it as blue by the same margins as North Jersey? No. Are the Democrats as liberal/progressive as those in North Jersey? No. But to say it is majority Republican is flat out wrong.
Overall South Jersey has traditionally been considered Republican. Van Drew flipped a traditionally Republican district. In a thread on the political board a poster who lives in Cape May County also was explaining this to a know-it-all from another state who had decided that this rally means that NJ will go for Trump in November.

That posters post you quoted was in response to a poster who thanked Trump for lowering gas prices after accusing Obama of hiking them.

Thanks.

It was pretty public that the Democrats helped Van Drew flip a traditionally Republican district, even though the districts were redraw after the 2010 census.

What does “traditionally” mean? Over the past 30 years it is shown to be more Democratic, Cape May County and to a lesser extent Salem County notwithstanding.

That’s Presidential politics anyway. Congressional can be different, but gerrymandering is also a factor there. Presidential elections get higher turnout though and are more representative of the overall leanings of a place as a result.

In Ocean City, i belonged to the Ocean City Democrat Club. It was me and half a dozen septuagenarians. I was in my 40’s, and they considered me the representative of the young generation, lol.
