    If there ever was a party in NY by that name it was before we were born. It's the Liberal Party Cuomo is threatening to resurrect as a home for the unions who are currently in WFP, but want to support him because he controls the goody bag.

      •  Funny but sad story (0+ / 0-)

        My parents were registered Liberals. I think they'd made that decision in the late 40’s, when the Liberal Party was the same kind of union-fueled Force To Be Reckoned With that WFP is right now. But by the time I was old enough to have a political mind of my own, it was a sad shadow of its former self.

        When I came of age, I registered as a Democrat, and then began a campaign to get my folks to realize that all their precious registration was doing for them was closing them out of voting in primaries. And as I'm sure you know, most of the action in NYC elections is during the primaries. I think they finally registered as Democrats when they moved to FL. No Liberal Party there.
