Posted on 06/22/2012 10:06:14 PM PDT by Sun
Did any of you listen to the debate last Sunday, and forum by NewYorkFamilies.org on Thursday, featuring the three NY U.S. senatorial candidates? After listening I will definitely vote for Wendy Long at the primaries this Tuesday.
Wendy Long is 100% pro-life, belonged to Americans United for life, pro-Constitution, worked for Justice Clarence Thomas, and much more.
While all of the candidates are conservative, Maragos (sadly) has the exceptions on abortion, and according to the NY Post is tight with the NY GOP, which is too "moderate" imo.
Turner is a very fine man, but is too open to the possibility of raising taxes.
Maragos challenged Turner on this, and Turner said we need to raise the debt ceiling for defense, etc..
Maragos said let's cut the Educations Dept., etc., instead.
BOTH Wendy Long and Maragos stated that they want to eliminate the Educations Dept. and both say NO! to a debt ceiling.
Wendy Long has been called a constitutional scholar and promoted the confirmations of Chief Justice John Roberts and Justice Samuel Alito!
What does this mean?
Maragos is pro-life EXCEPT in cases of rape, incest and the life of the mother.
If a baby is a product of rape, it is STILL a life, and will still die by being sucked out, burned to death with saline, or ripped apart, like any other baby who is a victim of abortion.
However, I can understand the life of the mother part, but if a woman, say gets treatments for cancer, and her baby does not live, she is not intentionally killing her child, and these days, there is a stronger possibility of saving BOTH lives.
Many conservatives such as Steve Forbes and Grover Norquist have endorsed Wendy Long.
Two votes for Wendy from us.
“Two votes for Wendy from us.”
Great to hear that!
Thank you. I never heard it expressed that way before, as “has the exceptions on abortion.” I should have been able to figure it out.
Voting for Long on Tuesday.
She was also endorsed by John Bolton, the New York Post, and the Gotham Tea Party.
“Voting for Long on Tuesday.”
Maybe you’ll Email your family and friends about her.
“She was also endorsed by John Bolton, the New York Post, and the Gotham Tea Party.”
Nice to see a Tea Party included!
I looked up the Gotham Tea Party when you told me they endorsed Wendy Long, and here’s an excerpt:
“June 20, 2012
Astute Gotham Tea Party enthusiastically endorses Wendy Long in NY US Senate primary
The following Gothan Tea Party June 20, 2012 press release explains why Long is the best choice.
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Gotham was impressed by Wendy’s grasp of our core ideals of fiscal conservatism, constitutional government and the preservation of free markets. In several meetings we saw that Wendy is far from a one-dimensional conservative. She has proven to be a quick learner and is now fluent on a variety of fiscal issues. Gotham was also particularly impressed with Long’s efforts to recognize the Tea Party as an important constituency among the electorate.”
I had to re-read this 3x; I thought this was a “best hamburger” thread. Need coffee & breakfast. Sorry. LOL.
Being a conservative political activist in New York, I rarely feel optimistic about politics. But this year that has changed. I have gotten to see Wendy Long in action. She is a principled conservative who is a superb campaigner. The Republican establishment is doing what they can to deny her the Party’s nomination but Wendy has been driving the Empire State and winning over Republican primary voters. Be sure to vote on Tuesday. And get your family and friends to vote for Wendy Long.
If these two paragraphs from Maragos’s wiki entry are correct, he’s essentially a Democrat:
“Maragos said he supports raising the debt ceiling in exchange for spending cuts, cutting subsidies for oil companies, and bringing home the troops, which would save $200 billion per year he would reinvest in “rebuilding America.”
As part of his plan to create jobs, Maragos would simplify the tax code, removing tax breaks for special interests. He would replace them with incentives for new manufacturing and green jobs, such as “almost no taxation.””
“And get your family and friends to vote for Wendy Long.”
Let’s all do that. Email them before Tuesday!
Thanx for that website!
Maragos “evolved” about the debt ceiling just in time to run for U.S. Senate. How can we trust him?
Laura Ingraham, via robocall, phoned my home yesterday, and asked me to vote for WENDY Long!
Thought it was interesting when Ingraham added that Wendy Long was a godmother to her children.
C-ya at the polls tomorrow fellow NY conservatives.
Putting Ms. Long out there before redistricting and seeing how the GOP nomination shakes out was an odd way to play the CP hand. I cannot understand politicians who have an ego big enough to be talked into a United States Senate race without ever having won a general election of any kind not even dog catcher.
The best choice on Tuesday, 26Jun is Bob Turner. Turner has a shot in November because he will cut into the support the Rats need in NYC to overcome the more conservative upstaters the ones that gave Paladino a landslide victory in the 2010 primary.
Listen to Ingraham giving some great reasons for supporting Wendy Long, and then listen to Wendy herself:
Bob Turner’s a great candidate, too, but Wendy is a much better opponent against a woman like Gillibrand who will play the fake war against woman card, and she won’t be able to do that with Wendy, NOT ONE BIT!
Plus, Wendy is so much smarter than Gillibrand, and will whoop her in a debate.
Listen to the link I posted of Laura Ingraham’s conversation with Wendy Long, and you will see how eloquent Wendy is.
Personally, I don’t buy that a candidate has to be a politician to win. Some folks even see that as a negative. Maybe we need some NEW blood.
And wouldn’t it be great to have a Constitutional scholar, Wendy Long, in the U.S. Senate to school her colleagues?
In this only woman-to-woman U.S. Senate race, I think the money WILL come, and from around the country. Even Grover Norquist is helping with fundraising:
“Grover Norquist pens fundraising plea for Wendy Long
Posted by Jon Campbell June 5, 2012 1:38 pm
Grover Norquist the conservative activist who has gained great power through his anti-tax pledge circulated to office holders and candidates has written a fundraising plea for Manhattan attorney Wendy Long in her Senate primary battle.”
U.S. Senate Candidate Wendy Long Stands With Cardinal Dolan and All People of Conscience Opposing Infringement on Religious Freedom
For IMMEDIATE Release: May 22, 2012
Calls on Gillibrand to support rights for all New Yorkers
New York, New York U.S. Senate candidate Wendy Long stands with Cardinal Dolan, Harvard Law Professor Mary Ann Glendon, the University of Notre Dame, and all people of conscience to oppose the Obama administrations attack on religious liberty, calling on Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand to support the rights of all New Yorkers, not just some.
While Sen. Gillibrand is relentless in her efforts to extend benefits to certain select groups, she has turned her back on the fundamental freedom of faith and conscience that is protected by the United States Constitution. In the process, Gillibrand is turning her back on New Yorkers who dont share her and President Obamas cynical political agenda.
Just recently, Sen. Gillibrand described her support for same-sex marriage in moral terms, saying: So I just think its a matter of right versus wrong, its a matter of core values of humanity and fairness and freedom and the ability of life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. At the same time, Gillibrand is willing to compromise the rights and the moral values of Catholics, Jews, Muslims and people of faith from all walks of life.
Wendy Long said, The First Amendment to the U.S. Constitution is what protects all Americans, from all walks of life, to be able to practice their faith, and to keep the government from meddling in their lives and consciences. The willingness of Senator Gillibrand and President Obama to trample that principle for the sake of their own political agenda is dangerous and wrong.
She added, I stand with Cardinal Dolan and all people of faith in opposing the Gillibrand-Obama effort to reduce our freedom of religion to just another activity that can be regulated by the federal government.
I, too, am a no-exceptions pro-lifer; I think that the rapist, not the baby, should be the one subject to the death penalty. (To clarify, I don’t consider a treatment to save the life of the mother that has the unintended consequence of killing the baby in the womb to be an abortion.)
That being said, the most principled pro-lifer to have served as U.S. president since Roe v. Wade was decided was President George W. Bush, and he claimed to support exceptions in cases of rape and incest, so I won’t oppose a candidate just because he or she isn’t 100% pro-life. The abortion battle is being fought on other turfs (such as defunding Planned Parenthood, nominating and confirming judges that would overturn Roe, approving CIANA and other pro-life laws, etc.), and right now the difference between a no-exceptions pro-lifer and a rape-and-incest-exception pro-lifer is more hypothetical than practical.
BTW, I’m not saying that I prefer Maragos to Wendy Long (and, as you know, I support Turner over both), I’m just pointing out that our enemy is not the candidate who is 95% pro-life, but the candidates and elected officials who are not pro-life at all (or who are only nominally pro-life yet vote against the Mexico City policy or for a clone-and-kill bill).
Manhattan attorney Wendy Long has been declared the winner in the GOP race Long ran against Rep. Bob Turner of Queens and Nassau County Comptroller George Maragos. Long has the Conservative Party line on the November ballot, which she says is needed by any Republican who hopes to win.
REPUBLICAN CANDIDATE VOTES PCT.
Wendy E. Long 68,160 50.9%
Bob Turner 47,807 35.7
George Maragos 18,030 13.5
Thanks for the info.!
I’m glad Bob Turner did well, too, as he was my 2nd favorite, and a nice guy.
Now time to beat Kirsten Gillibrand!
“I, too, am a no-exceptions pro-lifer; ..”
Good. We should not punish the child for the sins of his/her father.
I have also voted for people who have exceptions, but when given a choice, I vote for the most pro-life candidate, but I am passionate about many other issues as well.
imo most pro-lifers don’t have a problem with treatments to save a mother’s life, because the intent is certainly not to harm the baby.
It reminds me of a radio announcer, around 5 years ago, who was crying when he told the story of a waitress that works in a nearby city to me, who had cancer, but chose not to have the treatments, and her baby lived, and she died. But this was her decision. What a brave lady, and what love she had for her child.
I heard that these days it is more possible to save them both, but I don’t know that much about it.
