This is one person without a doubt that NY and America desperately needs

June 11, 2010

Excellent video of Gary Berntsen and supporters at the NY GOP Convention!   (please watch all the wy through, important comments in the latter half)

Mr Berntsen is the Republican nominee, (should be the conservative nominee *), and is supported by several Patriots for America, Conservative Society, and Tea Party groups throughout the state.

* Staunch defender of the Constitution, Limited Government, Free enterprise as a Fiscal conservative, and endorses the teaching of US history and our Founders core values in America’s educational institutions. 

Gary Berntsen believes that our future is bright and that New York and America’s best days are still in front of us. However, the economic and physical threats to our state and nation continue to grow and must be met aggressively by leaders in Washington. Unfortunately, Senator Schumer and his peers in Washington have failed to meet these security threats – leaving our state and nation vulnerable.

Our overwhelming national debt threatens our nation with far greater economic troubles than those we are now experiencing and our own tax and regulatory systems are giving foreign competition a huge advantage. Amazingly, Washington’s only response to these crises seems to be to spend, tax and regulate even more!

Internationally, we are now seeing foreign nations and rogue organizations working harder than ever to attack us here within our shores. As evidenced by the recently foiled attack in Times Square, the threats aimed at our state and nation have not diminished, but instead continue to evolve. Washington’s response? They have given the terrorists greater rights than our own men and women in uniform and cut spending for anti-terror efforts in New York City!

America is the greatest nation on earth, but we have strayed from our core principles to the detriment of our security. Today we are at great risk, personally and collectively, from economic threats and international volatility.

Senator Schumer has ignored these security threats for too long. It is time for him to go.

“I will take the fight to senator Schumer in every city, town and village in this great state. This vote of confidence from my fellow Republicans proves that this Party is not afraid of Chuck Schumer, his bloated $21million war chest, his Washington contacts or his crony special interests.”
