Actions speak louder than words and Tuesday's election results says it all. Look at the margin in which Carlucci won over Reda's candidate Castaldi.- Carlucci- 70% vs Castaldi 30%! BTW, Mr. Yularen you sound like a Communist apparatchik who doles out party propaganda and accuses citizens of being crazy because they speak truth to power about changing corrupt political practices.

Mr. Harris: We are Republicans. We believe in the Bill of Rights. Free speech and most especially Free Political Speech has been guaranteed by the blood, life and limbs of every American soldier since 1776 to present day. You may disagree with Mr. Hull but please never, ever suppress by demand, silence of anyone on the grounds you just stated. I disagree with you on this openly, but I will fight to the death for your right to say it, Sir.

Mr. Yularen: I nominated Joe Carvin in the spirit of party unity out in the open for solidarity. Setting aside my personal opinion, because that is what is expected of leaders and party leadership. Whom I vote for or not vote for in the privacy of the voting booth is my personal business and not yours or anyone else's. MY vote must be earned. It is not freely given or blindly entrusted Sir. I hope you respect the sanctity of the vote as much as I do: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Q0uM1B5H98w&feature=relmfu Here I endorse Joe Carvin while I withdraw my candidacy in the interest of the people of the 17th Congressional District. I asked Joe Carvin to adhere to our principles and supported him, until such time, he did not. That was his choice and I made mine. I took the bold act to unify our Party: http://www.youtube.com/watch?NR=1&v=9_vE2h5p1Mg&feature=endscreen

Lester: I can't embarrass the Republican Party - it does that to itself. If it was fighting for principles and not for position no one could 'embarrass' it. A party that makes the arcane argument that Yularen made above, and to which Mele responded, needs to be 'embarrassed' until it starts thinking clearly. I notice a young Democrat by the name of Joesph Coe writes articles on Patch expressing his principles. http://pearlriver.patch.com/blog_posts/election-day-2012-recap-the-good-the-bad-the-illegal While I have pursued him to provide his views on patronage and he has not done so, I admire him for putting his views forward in a forthright manner. Where is the equivalent young Republican writing articles on his/her point of view? Missing in action! See the problem? With the thinking Yularen, Reda and the rest of you are espousing you are killing the Party and destroying a vibrant political process in Rockland County. Things will not improve while Reda is the face of local Republicanism. When Republican people talk about the Republicans of the Clarkstown Board as one being 'compliant' and the other being 'trouble' we have a problem. As to Akin - your reference being I presume that I would say "women who are victims of what Akin called "legitimate rape" rarely get pregnant" shows that you are incapable of rising to the point of foolishness from you present position of imbecility. That is why I can't embarrass you - you do that to yourself!

Mr Harris: <<<As to Hull I still say he is embarrassing us>>> Music to my ears!
