    Bumping this, also just wondering about the member who voted "not exicted" would appriciate your thinking on this.


    President Ronald Reagan stated: “The Conservative Party has established itself as a preeminent force in New York Politics and an important part of our political history.”

    This quote is listed on the HISTORY page of the NY Conservtive Party

    The fusion ballott has help to make the Conservative Party of NY a force that the Republician Party cannot dismiss.

    I'd like to study the issue further. I'm not willing to dismiss or embrace without some careful analysis.

    do you mean 'not a good idea'?

    The Oklahoma Constitution prohibits this bad type of voting. The whole idea behind our pre-final vote process is to get somebody to get elected who can do what the people who elect him want him to do. The two party system is the best in the world leading to the most stable government in the world. It is the developing of the Party platform that causes most candidates to run (even if they loose the presidential bid, a person with a couple hundred votes at the convention is able to put their pet planks on the platform. Multi-party systems make this harder. I am a bit unhappy about the stretching out the Presidential selection process. Four months before November should be plenty.
