The governor needs to stay the course, be strong and continue to promote and stand by his vision. The rest of the legislators need to serve the taxpaying citizens by carrying out our wants and wishes. The government does NOT exist to promote their own agendas. By the people, for the people! Bruno is NOT the governor and should be serving the will of the people, not his own agenda. If everyone would realize the power of the vote, we could fix this ourselves.

When Gov. Spitzer was elected I held high hopes for some changes in Albany. What I continue to see is same old, same old. Even though the governor has attempted to create some changes, he continues to be stymied by the old school New York State political machine.
Spitzer promised reform. What we got was a re-enforcement of the good old boy cronyism, union-dominated politics that have plagued New York State for half a century. If the Senate flips Democratic, Heaven help us. The only solution is a constitutional convention and a rewrite of state law, upstate to secede from the New York peacefully and form a separate state, or open revolution.
