    Gov. Cuomo: Pro-life people not welcome in New York

    New York Governor Andrew Cuomo believes that pro-life activists along with anti-gay activists, and supporters of the Second Amendment, are not welcome in his state.

    During a radio interview on Friday, Cuomo pointed out that Republicans were in the midst of a schism, where conservatives worked against moderate Republicans.

    "Their problem is not me and the Democrats; their problem is themselves," he said. "Who are they? Are they these extreme conservatives who are right-to-life, pro-assault-weapon, anti-gay? Is that who they are? Because if that’s who they are and they’re the extreme conservatives, they have no place in the state of New York, because that’s not who New Yorkers are."

    I guess we can expect Chic-fil-A to get run out of town soon.

    As much as I am for a woman to have the right to choose abortion and I am for SSM being legal, I find these comments from the governor very idiotic.

    As a governor, you are in a leadership position and not only represent the people that voted for you but also the people of the state of New York. I find these comments are just plain dividing and serve no real purpose. It also shows a lack of leadership.

    and yet the people of new york seem to approve of his job so far.

    With his re-election campaign looming, Gov. Andrew M. Cuomo has enviable approval ratings from New York voters and general support for many of his newest proposals, including legalizing medical marijuana, according to a new poll released on Monday. But his specific plan for the drug — to use an obscure law, and not new action by the State Legislature, to provide it to patients — is much less popular.

    New York does not permit the abrogation of fundamental liberties in order to satisfy some people's religious leanings. Feel free to never obtain an abortion yourself and not to work as an abortion provider. But that is all that liberty entitles you to. You don't get to restrict other people's actions to conform to your religion.

    Works for me! Pro-life people wish to FORCE their agenda on others.

    Pro-choice people wish to allow Americans their free will and personal liberty.

    Is that how you feel about taxes?
    If you expect people to be rational, you aren't being rational.
