The Changing Political Landscape in Our State
In recent years, there has been a noticeable shift in voting patterns away from the left in our state, as demonstrated by the results of the 2022 election. Research and numerous articles have pointed to a shift towards Conservative/Republican candidates within the Asian and Hispanic communities. Blocks of Orthodox Jewish voters and Eastern European immigrants have also been incrementally moving away from the Democrats.
This shift can largely be attributed to the failure of the Democratic Party to address issues that are vitally important to most New Yorkers, such as crime, education, and the economy. Recent polls conducted by Siena as well as McLaughlin and Associates confirm that the majority of New Yorkers agree with what the Conservative Party considers simple common sense.
During this year’s state budget process, we asked the legislature to focus on several key issues (Press Release). First, we believe that there should be no new taxes or fees imposed on the hardworking people of our state. Second, we advocate for meaningful bail reform that ensures the safety of our communities while treating all individuals fairly. Third, we support the reform of disclosure laws which are currently handcuffing DA’s.
In addition, we believe in keeping local control of zoning, as well as the continued use of clean natural gas stoves. We also advocate for lifting the cap on charter schools and repealing the Raise the Age laws for murderers and other violent criminals.
Even polling in Assembly Speaker Carl Heastie’s district shows that he is out of touch with his constituents’ views. It is clear that our state is experiencing a political shift, and it is important for our leaders to listen to the concerns of their constituents and address the issues that matter most to them.
GOP HOUSE KEEPING ITS PROMISES
The Conservative Party has every reason to take pride in their role in flipping the House of Representatives Republican. The new House undoubtedly leans right in its philosophy, which is reflected in their “Commitment to America.”
Since January, Speaker McCarthy and his majority have been working hard to keep their commitments. They have created committees to investigate COVID, the events of January 6th, and the weaponization of the federal government. They are meeting, taking testimony, and learning truths that have been kept bottled up by the Democrats and Biden administration.
The House Republicans have passed important legislation, such as the Parental Rights Bill, HR 1 to lower energy costs, the Born Alive Act, the Strategic Production Response Act, and denouncing the horrors of socialism.
They are now negotiating a budget that looks to control spending, respect the debt cap, and avoid new taxes. It is refreshing to see promises made and promises kept.
With their clear focus on core conservative values such as small government, individual rights, and fiscal responsibility, the House Republicans are staying true to their word. This commitment to their principles will help them continue to move the country forward in a positive direction.
