Post Primary Election Mop-Up (Cleaning Up The Schmutz)

Divrei Torah on Yemei Hateshuvah. Exposing Issac Abrahams real record. How Belz and Agudah fooled us and our Rabbonim regarding Heyer's support of civil unions.

  1. Politicians know what parts of their districts votes and which do not. It is very easy to adopt a protest bloc no vote position which politicians love because the only people they are beholden to are the ones that are in areas that do vote. Not voting gives them a free ride to do as they please with your area such as not providing discretionary funding, supporting needed improvements or upgrades to infrastructure etc. The current street closures for school playtime without permits? GONE The easy support with police and street closures for Hachnasas Torah you now enjoy? GONE I can think of probably a dozen other community sensitive issues which presently enjoy the support of "treifa" elected officials which would also be GONE I remember not too long ago after the 66 police precinct riot when 13th Avenue was actually 100% CLEAR of double parking due to a total crackdown...wasn't alot of shopping going on - GONE- You want to take a protest position? Pick a minority candidate that has no prayer of success and turn it into a close nail biter of a race...that incumbent will not disregard your views again. Idealism works well when you live in B'nai Brak, Kiryas Yoel or New Square and shopping at Moishe's. Unfortunately, democracy is never free and when you don't exercise those freedoms that other generations have paid for in dam to bring us here then we will quickly find that those rights and freedoms are trampled on.
