Stating that he was “not really interested in the other amendments,” New Jersey Governor Chris Christie announced that his main goal if elected to executive office will be upholding American’s constitutional right to delay laws affecting Congressional salary changes from taking effect until after the next election of representatives.
“The other amendments, I’m not so worried about,” said the Republican Presidential candidate. “I think it’s pretty clear that anything passed prior to the 27th was pretty annoying.”
Reiterating his support for warrantless wiretapping by the NSA and denying citizenship to babies born on American soil, Christie staunchly defended his record on votes concerning the 27th Amendment. “I have been a stalwart in the great state of New Jersey in defending the right of the American people to have their elected representatives wait a little bit before taking a pay increase,” he wrote on his campaign website’s blog. “By ignoring other lesser amendments like the 1st, 4th, and 14th, I was able to become champion of the 27th. And with that have upheld a timeless law that has been part of our national government since 1992.”
Christie defended his Republican credentials to detractors stating that he was economically responsible, in favor of a strong military, and willing to uphold a few parts of the Nation’s Supreme Law but only if they fit into how he wants to do things.
“Like any Republican, I believe in a strict adherence to the original framework of the Constitution,” he continued. “Unless of course violating those inalienable, self-evident rights helps me do what I want to do without all the hassle.”
