With two large cities on either side of New Jersey ordering drastic vaccine and mask measures, it may be only a matter of time before New Jersey does something as stupid and pointless.

With word coming out Tuesday that Murphy is in talks with the Legislature to extend and/or expand his executive powers we may be facing the same thing here.

On Monday, Philadelphia issued an order that all people dining indoors or attending indoor entertainment events will have to present proof of vaccination. New York state has re-issued a mask mandate for indoor workplaces.

If Murphy's history is any indication of whether or not he will follow their lead, it doesn't look promising, at least for those who value liberty and common sense.

In 2017, Gov. Phil Murphy won the election by 14.1 percentage points, a margin exceeding 303,000. His re-election was much closer, an 84,000-vote, 3.2-point victory. He and others talked about a ‘red wave’ of Republican voters in the electorate, and certified results show which counties turned red most.
