Assembly already passed it, so is a done deal.
NY GOP just locked itself into a permanent minority status.
Nice move, guys. Makes my decision about the repeated invitations for me to join the local Republican committee a whole lot easier...
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
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.
“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.
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.
