Very true. I moved from New Jersey to Georgia years ago. My brother still lives in South Jersey near Atlantic City. Our homes are similarly valued (although mine is twice as big). He pays 5 times the property tax that I do - and I think my $2,000 a year is pretty high. I don't know how average people can afford $1,000 per month in property tax and raise a family.

Let me say on the record that I don’t really care about New Jersey. I know very little about it. But, I know this much: I don’t want to live there and I don’t want the rest of the United States to resemble New Jersey.

For me New Jersey is the Joe Piscopo character asking anyone and everyone “Are you from Jersey? I’m from Jersey.”

Also, I’ve never seen the TV show “Jersey Shore,” but still I don’t like it. And know that I don’t want the rest of the country to resemble it, either.

It’s the state that elected...
