As you know, the NYS Constitutional Convention is up for a vote this Tuesday, and while it seems like an historic opportunity to effect some positive change, Lord KNOWS how dysfunctional NYS government is -most dysfunctional Legislature in the entire nation according to the Brennan Center for Law & Justice – unfortunately, rational conservative thought is drowned out by predominantly Democrat districts. We’d need to fight hard with loads of money to secure one of the three seats in each Senate District and even then all of the 15 At-Large seats will go to Democrats. And Legislators can take Delegate seats! Nothing like the inmates running the asylum.
Andrew Cuomo and Bill DeBlasio will control the entire show. They raised $30 million in one night alone to promote a Yes vote on the ConCon, and did you see any of the media promotion here in Upstate New York? Of course you didn’t, because your vote doesn’t matter, it’s irrelevant. Despite the 50-50 population in NYC vs Upstate, NYC swamps Upstate at least four or five to one in voting.
It’s all about the money. Pension “Reform” will instead raid the funds to fill their coffers. A ConCon is a quick easy way to push through more restrictive gun laws and full term abortion. And if you think taxing the air we breathe is off-limits for tax-and-spend Democrats, just you wait.
So we will be voting NO and we encourage you to do the same.
Unless our dear friend, true paladin & fellow patriot Carl Paladino, who may be on WBEN 930 tomorrow (Friday) morning with Michael Caputo, changes our mind with a different perspective. Many thanks, David DiPietro
