-- -- -- All right we start tonight with one of our own -- Rivera host of the fox show overall -- at large is when a Republican bid.
You Republican bid for this at a recent New Jersey he is not the first TV host a -- in the political arena of course.
And he's here now to talk but that's about as fiscally conservative -- -- sure rob now that can listen in assures of the apocalypse -- running as a republic.
Well I've been a Republican since I moved to New Jersey in 1989.
It's something natural liberal and -- I am a progressive I am a liberal person but it used to be when I was growing up.
Republicans were all parts of the ideological spectrum they were they conservative they -- the socially conservative they were the moderates but there were people like Nelson Rockefeller the governor here in New York John Lindsay the mayor here Clifford case the senator the last Republican elected in New Jersey for the United States and 197240.
Years ago so anyone who runs under the GOP banner.
In New Jersey had better have a different idea than the Republican.
Platform that doomed Mitt Romney in November I was wanted to take it -- terrible time to be -- Republican I don't know anyone told you -- that that is -- roughly able to -- right.
It's -- -- label because the people the activists who took control of the party were able to.
Put them out -- point in -- denying gay people the right to get married.
Abortion to broke no exemptions from the UB prohibition against abortion even rape and incest -- the life of the mother I mean.
Just wild regressive.
Points of view and not immigration my goodness why would a Latino why would an Asian person.
Vote for the Republican Party when -- language.
The anti immigration languages consult Bob -- -- so.
Unnecessary so while you mentioned fiscal conservatives.
I endorse the Romney Ryan.
Economic platform of -- I thought it was best for America with printing money.
We are -- we are seeding the seeds of this -- question catastrophe down and -- we rein in this spending in these entitlement programs.
But to say that where I while if that's what we care about as Republicans that tradition has been what we care about then why are we the policeman of other people's private.
Let's just -- -- -- -- obvious do you think -- to offer Republicans to vote for -- on it on a social basis in futures well it depends on which Republicans you're talking -- remember Melissa the premise here now -- New Jersey and new York and and if you look at even Scott Brown in Massachusetts these are.
Not the deep south brand of Republicans these are not the people who insist on telling you how you live -- what's right and what's wrong I have no intention of telling people what's right what's wrong I'm telling people a much more of a libertarian borrowing you know bid from above -- -- -- my -- New Jersey and judge Andrew Napolitano people live and let live button but let's not.
Democrats are giving away the store they are allowing municipal unions -- stomp all over them.
They are in negotiating contracts that are on diesel.
The fiscally sound they are and other ways restricting the future and I think that that is the best -- for republic.
Ask you about your financial policies I mean when you Atari fiscal policies when you say that the Fed's prime job is caring for citizens and dire straits that's something that you -- awhile ago.
The Fed's prime job that he did not dollar ahead of the federal government -- and I visited the social safety net is a key job not that fit the Fed's.
The Fed's job is to keep -- relatively insult the federal government that it would not need -- -- uncles are.
But -- see you think their prime jobless caring for so this -- dire -- you don't think it's that just a very basic laws and infrastructure in the country.
Well I don't remember exactly when Yang said that but I I dived stand by -- -- by if by sedated and philosophic they have absolutely no problem with the concept of a compassionate government.
Here's where I differ from Democrats I think the Democrats have destroyed the work ethic.
In a huge segment.
Of our population by social programs that for instance force people not to get married because if they get married than the father is.
Financially responsible for the child it brings -- to the world better not to get married in the -- this is the reaction to Democrats social programs.
Don't get married then you get welfare and all of the other programs that cycle welfare anymore but you know you know -- -- it is.
I would do it the -- I would have social programs that -- designed and it's not social and -- to keep people together I would I would insist.
That there be a father's name on every birth certificate I call -- overall those law that's one of the planks in my platform if.
Melissa and as a long way between now and next November well I decide to do you jumped ahead to my final question that our money meter here on a scale of one to money what do you figure the odds that you're gonna jump -- So will want your money it's our money like I my -- I say -- -- money I think is my at three of the key to solid the rate that.
I think my overall -- -- eating meat -- Cory -- few months well I I will challenge him in every nook and cranny of New Jersey I will not -- -- he -- to -- not -- African American vote not the Latino vote on campaign in Spanish and in English.
-- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- other things -- much for coming on the spot my -- our.
