    You people who voted for Cuomo and DiBlasio voted to make NYS and NYC unsafe. But the only thing you cared about was the askan gravy train. Shame on you!!!

    Your title is an ignorant slam of people who may have voted Democrat. HOWEVER, Cuomo and DiBlasio were on other party ballots as well. You didn’t slam those who voted Working Families, Independence or Women’s Equality parties line.

    Your bias against Democrats is despicable. Your title should have been about these two men you don’t like.

    BTW>>>>>Many of the CR readers don’t live in NYC and could not have voted for these two men, many don’t live in NYS and could not have voted for Cuomo. The world does not revolve around the 5 Boros.

    “The world does not revolve around the 5 Boros.”

    Stop masking the bigger issues. The socialists will come for CT as well. Make no mistake about it.

    CTL: You just busted my bubble. I thought the world did revolve around the 5 boros. =D

    1: It is not the “askan gravy train”. It is the reality of living in NY where there is token republican opposition to the democrat party candidates. Even if every frum yid voted for the republican candidate it would not out weigh the democrat party voting bloc and whatever leverage we have as a community would be totally diluted.

    People need to understand that they can have opinions without denigrating others. That being said, I always vote for for both socially and fiscally conservative candidates.

    When are you moving to a republican state? Texas is a great state for frum Jews.

    CTlawyer,

    As lawyers are wont to do you’re making a straw man

    1) people who are voting “working party” with deblasio’s name (which happens to be the same guy as the democrat) are voting democrat and they know it they just don’t want to be blamed for voting for a democrat

    2) 1 isn’t referring to those people that live oot obviously

    When you do the same to republicans who voted for trump you’re not blaming the democrats who didn’t vote for Hillary but it’s essentially “their fault” too

    Cuomo received a very small percent of the fum vote in the general election. Check the voting results in majority Orthodox voting districts.

    Sometimes the candidates on the minor party tickets are D or R, sometimes they are not
    I voted for a minor party candidate for Town Council this year

    Here in CT we have the:
    Borough of Naugatick with a brand new Yeshiva
    The Borough of Woodmont (part of the City of Milford) with a shul dating back to the 1920s, formerly a summer shul, now a year round Chabad shul
    Other boroughs include Fenwick in Old Saybrook at the confluence of the CT River and Long Island Sound. Actress Katharine Hepburn lived there on the point. Stonington, Litchfield, Bantam and 3 others. Most are waterfront (lakes or coastal) and may also be consolidated with a town of the same name,

    For our British CR members in Gilbert ans Sullivan’s HMS Pinnafore, Sir Joseph Porter (First Lord of the Admiralty) sings a song which includes the line:
    “I grew so rich that I was sent
    By a pocket borough into Parliament.
    I always voted at my party’s call,
    And I never thought of thinking for myself at all.
    I thought so little, they rewarded me
    By making me the Ruler of the Queen’s Navee!”

    CTLawyer,

    That doesn’t negate what I’m saying

    The minor party candidate is usually a democrat or republican (sometimes not though) so if the minor party candidate is also a major party candidate you’re in essence voting for the major party candidate

    Reb Eliezer, would you vote for a candidate who wants to permit public nudity or incest since you don’t have to engage in such behavior even if it’s legal?

    Public nudity involves me personally seeing it on the street, so does the behavior of incest and the same gender
    leading to Public Display of Affection (PDA). Most people don’t do abortiion only in case of dire circumstances.

    When one votes for a candidate on a minor Party line instead of the D or R lines, than the voter is saying I do not endorse the party or its platform. That is the important difference

    Reb Eliezer, so why are you voting for the candidates who are much bigger supporters of mishkav zochor?

    CTLawyer,

    BS

    The candidate is following his party’s platform and they know it, most of the time it’s just shtick

    Joseph, what about caring for the poor and not throwing them into the water and telling them, sink or swim?

    Reb Eliezer, virtually no candidate supports what you describe. And it is no excuse to vote for a mishkav zochor supporter.

    Are you aware that you don’t have to be a registered member of a party to run on their ticket?

    In our area, this year the Dems ran 2 candidates for Board of Education and 4 for Town Council who are not party members. They all won seats. They may caucus with the Ds but are not beholden to vote the party line.

    Senator Sanders is running for the D nominayion, but is an elected independent, not a Dem.

    CT, Sanders runs as a democrat because no true American would cast a vote for a Communist Party candidate.

    Rebbie Debbie, how do you define a true American?

    @RebbeDebbie
    The Independent Senator Sanders is not a Communist, but you spread lies.
    There is no such thing as a true American. That is white supremacist talk and they hate you (and me).
    It is perfectly legal for a Communist Party candidate to run for office in the USA. This is not the 1950s Joe McCarthy era.
    In the 1970s I hated my local war hawk Congressman and his other major party pro Viet Nam War opponent, so I voted for Joelle Fishman the Communist Party candidate in CT third district. i was anti-war, but a TRUE American

    CTLAWYER, as much as we may disagree with certain qualifications for what makes a true American, I find it odd to say that there is no such thing as one.

    CTlawyer,

    Yet sanders isn’t running as a Republican and the reason being is because he’s more in line with the democrats

    So if someone votes for a democrat under the “working family” ticket he’s still voting democrat

    @RebbYidd23
    I post that there is no such thing as a ‘true American’ because the term is one without an official definition. It changes to suit the speaker.
    Does it mean citizen, native born, patriot, supporter of the current government?
    These days I find it used to accuse non-followers of the political right of being less than ‘American’

    If one googles true American the responses are about a drinking game.

    In the early 1970s when I was protesting the war in Viet Nam I was accused of not being a True American. I took my chances in the draft lottery unlike Private Bone Spurs or GW Bush pretending to fly jets in the Texas Air National Guard while not showing up regularly.

    I am active in politics, have never missed voting since I was able to vote in 1972, pay my taxes and am not afraid to question government officials. Nowhere is it written that an Anerican has to have blind allegiance to any elected official
