The implication that we're not willing to fight is disconcerting, to say the least.
This isn't a new fight. It's being going on in this state since 1911 with the Sullivan Act.
The state has become more and more extreme left wing, because of the major population centers. Even if all of upstate NY voted "right wing", we'd lose to NY City.
Basically, we who don't believe in these things are overwhelmed by those who do.
This fight has been being fought for over 100 years.
Frankly, as soon as I can get it all together, which might be 6 months or 6 years, I'm gone. Someone else can fight the fight. I'm going somewhere that has rights I can fight to MAINTAIN, not beg an increasingly hostile political machine and clueless urban population to get them back.
Still happily answering to the call-sign Peetza.
The problem, as you so eloquently put it, is choice.
He is no fool who gives what he can not keep to gain what he can not lose.
