Republicans and those opposed to a woman's right to choose are against it. Do you support all 10 points of Governor Cuomo's proposed Women's Equality Act?

Nassau County Democratic Chairman Jay Jacobs has called on all politicians of both parties to reject the Independence Party and not accept its endorsement. When endorsed by the Independence Party, the candidate gets a line on the ballot that could be the difference in an election. A minor party receives a ballot line if its gubernatorial candidate garners at least 50,000 votes. Those who support the Independence Party say it has a legal right to be on the ballot if earned through the electoral process. Those against the Independence Party feel it doesn't support any political activity, and a substantial amount of the funds raised are used to enrich party insiders. Should the New York State Independence Party lose its line on the ballot?

Instead, maybe the

Instead, maybe the Independence Party could be developed into a real 3rd party. There are plenty of people who are socially liberal and fiscally conservative, who don't feel well represented by the Dem's or the Rep's. Having a real 3rd party would give voters a real 3rd choice, and might break up the gridlock in government.
