Calling on all New Yorkers

November is approaching fast. This might be the most crucial election in NY history. Cuomo had signed an agreement with Working Families Party to expand their radical agenda. This means that new social programs will be implemented, middle class will be taxed into extinction and new gun laws will be passed. In other words Cuomo's reelection will destroy what's left of NYS.

So... What have you done to prevent this from happening? I am happy to report that I got 7 people registered to vote and gave Astorino $150 of my hard-earned money. I am also talking to my coworkers, friends and neighbors to make sure they vote for Astorino in November.

Anyone else?

Astorino will be appearing at the Moose Lodge at 631 Pulaski Rd, Greenlawn, NY (Long Island) on Sunday 7/13 at 6:30pm.

This is a great opportunity to not only meet Rob Astorino and get behind him but to also meet the Conservative Society for Action (CSA) TEA Party members who will be present there and join up.

Now is our chance...GET IN THE FIGHT!

Also, don't forget to Vote Against Jack Martins in NYS Senate District 7 - he voted for the SAFE Act and is vunerable.

Thank you very much for supporting Rob. We can really do it - get rid of the tyrant and elect a Constitutionalist for Governorship of NY. We just need to motivate voters and explain who Cuomo is. Please continue to spread the word. Electing Astorino is our only chance. We will need his veto power soon. Without him this state is doomed.

Have you guys thought about doing some more public events to raise awareness? Not sure what your options would be but there are lots of clever folks in the past who have done demonstrations and what not with a good clear message and made it fun and gotten a lot of positive response. Not being a NYer I'm not sure what is 'normal' there or what you can and can't do on the streets.

Good luck.

I would say that I will do what I can to get my coworkers and family to vote against Cuomo, but I am pretty sure they are all going to anyway. I work for a firearms manufacturer, and my dad was a state employee(DOT-Equipment Management) until a year or so ago, so he has plenty of reasons to hate Prince Andy (despite what most people think about state workers, they tend to get screwed over by Albany before the rest of us do, and Andy-boy really put the screws to them, because, hey, they can't strike, so what can they really do about it)

Any of you NY State guys wanna see a nice Astorino billboard put up by the Yates County GOP folks; go to www.gunpoliticsny.com and just scroll down the front page a bit....This pretty much says it all. I recently donated to the Astorino campaign also, the first time in my life I ever made a donation to a candidate. Also recently gave $365. to the Political Action Committee of SCOPE, ( Shooters Committee On Political Education) Scopepac.com so I'm donating a dollar a day for the next year. This is the year Cuomo's gotta go and every gun owner in this state has to vote against these corrupt tyrants who like to call themselves "Public Servants"... "Public Parasites" is much more fitting.

Just because your friends and coworkers say that they will vote for Astorino does not mean they will actually vote. Please call them all before the election and once more on the election day to make sure they've actually cast their vote. No excuses for anyone this time.

Naturally I will vote against Cuomo,and, as the past has taught us, every vote does count.
But I am highly pessimistic about an Astorino upset--we New Yorkers seem to get the government that we deserve.
My good friend just moved to Texas and, one day soon, I will call one of the free states my home.

Have you forgotten about an unknown guy named Pataki that beat Mario Cuomo in a huge upset? History has a tendency to repeat itself. And yes, every vote counts. Andy mush pay for the **** sandwich he fed us.

Astorino is not a career politician. He improved the Westchester County dramatically, cuttingg taxes, consolidating and improving services, fighting the HUD in preventing low income housing quota. The man is a strong believer in the 2nd Amendment, liberty and private property. He also proposed instating term limits on all State elected officials - that will cut down on corruption and allow for fresh blood to enter NY politics on behalf of the People.

Vote against Cuomo, but check out Astorino's views. He will be a great Governor.
