It's not a matter of "brilliance" or of not being the "best" - it's about being evil.
Pretty much by the sound of it, my understanding of NY politics is that the Republican candidate usually gets both the "Conservative" and "Republican" endorsements (conservative is a party in NY). The conservatives have said from the beginning they WILL NOT endorse any Republican that votes for this and they may very well run a third party against any that do. This of course will split the Republican vote down the middle, giving the Republican candidate no chance of winning. But quite frankly, I think its times these RINO's pay with their political careers regardless of the consequences.
What they have done, the GOP in NY, is to completely take any moral issues off of the table, and give very little reason to not simply vote in ones’ own economic interests
Wait till gays enjoy the bliss of divorce court in NYS.
No? Maybe we do but we fail to realize how much power corrupts. History repeats itself...
Kinda gives a new meaning to a “Shotgun Wedding” don’t it?
We lost another fight in NY tonight, just because of a few RINOs, but it will probably hurt the entire Republican Party in NY. Maybe the NY Conservative Party will end up being the 2nd major party instead. I even left the NYS Conservative Party, because they are not as conservative as I am, but they are better than the NY Republican Party.
Yes, what’s the sense of having a Republican win, if he or she acts like a Democrat.
With animals and children on leashes not far behind.
That's exactly the case. Just as with abortion this perversion will cover every state in no time.
Remarkable that few see these two as simply sexual decisions people are making...they are not rights issues as they are deceptively presented as.
They are choices/decisions people make concerning when, and with whom, and how they conduct themselves sexually.....nothing more.
But the homosexuals, and woman who want to be sexually promiscuous, would have us all focus on the "consequences" or 'results' of their choices. Blaming the majority, blaming our laws rather than taking responsibility for their actions and behaviors. Thus the society in general, we the public, becomes their problem rather than they themselves.
“Makes my decision about the repeated invitations for me to join the local Republican committee a whole lot easier...”
I can see why, and tell them that we conservatives just aren’t seeing much difference between the Republican Party, and the Dem Party, in NYS.
Part of the reason we don’t see a difference is because the Republicans just don’t fight hard enough, as well as there are too many RINOs.
Can we try the secession thing again?
It’s worth a try.
With all the problems facing our country, this is the issue that our politicians decide to tackle. Same here in Illinois. Where are the pitchforks?!
Imagine all those old chicken hawks marrying young butt boys to lower their taxes. Watch it happen on the federal level before the election.
The thing is —We the People or the legislature can never deny the inalienable rights of people. It is not possible (if the Constitution stands).
Constitution is based on Natural Law and God’s Law. It makes this unconstitutional on several points....particularly, it denies children the right to be raised by their biological parents—an inalienable right. Of course, we allow government to kill babies, so I guess these marxists don’t give a cr*p about inalienable rights, huh???
JusticeThomas is the only one on the Supreme Court who thoroughly understands how unconstitutional this is on several points of law....this forcing a paradigm that ignores natural law and God’s law....the foundation of our legal system—and since our rights come from God, we have to go by His standards of right and wrong....not the whim and insane feelings of abused people. Arbitrary laws are political laws that pass to give power of some over others (pay offs, bribes or nepotism)—it is not based on reason and logic (natural law) and therefore, are unjust law because they give special rights to some.
We are no longer a nation under the Rule of Just Law.....we are ruled by fascists who are forcing unnatural ideas into the heads of the future generation. It is an abomination to deny God’s design of man and woman....which is understood in our Constitution. Of course, Marxists want to destroy that concept of God, so they can destroy all our rights and order us around like slaves.
There will be such a moral vacum within the next generation in this country that islamists won’t have to fire any shots to take over this country. We are making it so easy for them.
I would not be the least bit surprised if some of those members of the NY GOP have gay kids, are gay themselves or have gay siblings. I find it hard to believe that it would pass otherwise.
This is disappointing, but not surprising. “Gay rights” is a litmus test issue with little or no room in the middle. If you don’t have a clear sense of what is right and wrong, You are usually going to cave in to the most emotional appeal. With an issue like this, when you get down to just few “undecided” legislators, you have already lost. That’s why I’m scared about this issue getting to the US Supreme Court. Anthony Kennedy has about as much of a moral compass as the four RINOS in the New York Senate. If the California case, or a Defense of Marriage Act challenge comes be the USSC, he’ll cave on this and we will have “gay marriage” imposed nationally.
