On the Campaign Trail with Jeff Bell

Voter discontent and anti-incumbency sentiment will be factors in the race between Republican Jeff Bell and Cory Booker (D., N.J.) in November, which is surprisingly tight despite the incumbent Democrat’s national popularity.

Bell has stepped up his campaigning and continued to push his economic agenda, which he believes will restore prosperity to the middle class, revive the economy, help small businesses, and create jobs. He has also addressed the threat of Islamic terrorism on the campaign trail.

Speaking at a GOP meeting in Lakewood days before President Barack Obama’s Oval Office speech on the threat posed by the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL, or ISIS), Bell spoke of President Ronald Reagan and cited the stark difference between Reagan and Obama.

Reagan “believed in our values,” Bell said. “He was loyal to our allies and other countries knew that.”

“The only thing we should be thinking about is how do we kill the killers before they come here,” Bell said. “Christians, Jews and minorities are being eradicated,” he said, and Obama’s administration is “anti-Israel” and has showed “passivity in the Middle East.”

Bell then turned to his economic plan, which calls for a return to a gold-backed dollar. It would be the first time in 43 years the greenback was backed by gold.

  1. Get to know Bell. He is an honorable man and offers a very meaningful alternative to the cynical politics as usual in Washington.

  2. I this time around will be nice the man is still a carpetbagger and i believe the republican party could have done better. Maybe the blog will post this?
