It's interesting that these people are the so called " orthodox leaders " who can " deliver votes". The people in Lakewood with brains who can think for themselves voted for Christie for his first term even though the lakewood vaad said to vote for Corzine. Even though corzine was for gay marriage, the vaad was willing to compromose their morals becaue Corzine was best for more government subsidies and handouts. That's not leadership. While I do think that we should have leaders, I don't think we have a very good process in place for determining who should be or is our leader. It certainly isn't the Lakewood vaad or the self appointed heads of Mosdos. I think people should start thinking for themselves. They may find getting in touch with what they really beleive and their own inner truth interesting.
