New York Gov. Kathy Hochul recently came under fire for telling Republicans to leave her state. With such division, is there any doubt our nation needs God?

From Fox News. Gov. Kathy Hochul, D-N.Y., sparked intense outrage after lambasting New York Republican candidates during a speech last week, telling them to “get out of town” and “head to Florida,” where they belong.

Post a prayer for your state.


The outrage simmered across social media early Monday, with Twitter users slamming the New York governor for her intolerant angle and accusing her of isolating all Republicans living in the Empire State.

“We’re here to say that the era of Trump and Zeldin and Molinaro — just jump on a bus and head down to Florida where you belong. Get out of town,” she said.

“You don’t represent our values,” she added.

Though Hochul later defended her comments and claimed they were meant for gubernatorial challenger Rep. Lee Zeldin, R-N.Y., and his political allies, former President Donald Trump and congressional candidate Marc Molinaro, Republicans across the spectrum took exception. …

Zeldin also fired back at Hochul’s comments on Twitter Friday, writing, “New York has a Governor who believes that if you disagree with her you are no longer a New Yorker and need to leave the state. Just think about how absolutely nuts that is. Kathy Hochul’s Gotta Go!” …

What a shame that she is unwilling to listen to others who disagree with her. Father, bring peace and unity to our nation. May your people humble themselves and pray and worship you. There is no hope for our nation if we don’t bow to you and you bring revival across our country. Bring Governor Hochul to humble herself to acknowledge you as God and no other. Thank you for what you are doing in our country. We may not see all you are doing, but we know you are answering prayer . We praise your name.

Actually she is echoing most democrats in ELECTED offices across our country today! Whatever salary and/or budgets honchul and politicians receive in New York and all over America comes from tax dollars which comes from every New Yorker and American that works or buys anything (sales tax)! It’s a sad day when a person elected to a public office feels like they can represent only those that believe as they do! FATHER GOD please quickly remove this unqualified and ignorant person from public office ASAP! Replace her with YOUR choice for Governor in JESUS NAME! Amen!

I read where so many stockbrokers and partners on Wall Street have put in for transfers to their Florida offices that Goldman Sachs and Chas. Schwab in Florida are no longer hiring from the outside; they have waiting lists of their NYC folks wanting jobs. When the stockbrokers were asked by journalists why they were leaving Wall Street – the pinnacle of success in their field – they all gave the same answer, “crime.”

And just read now where nearly 500,000 tax-paying residents moved out of New York in 2019-2020 alone, to the tune of a 19.5 billion dollar loss for New York.

So looks like New Yorkers are way-y-y-y ahead of their demented Governor.

Have mercy on this soul O Lord for the spirit of antichrist speaks through her; draw her gently into Your presence and speak lovingly to her that she would be won over and despise the day she spoke against You. Let the light shine it has nothing to do with political parties but of righteous vs unrighteous in Jesus’ name amen

No manners, then no principles, no morals, then no values…what system are we using to vote? It’s past time to open our eyes and ears!

She’s right, though. Repubilcans and those that support President Trump DON’T represent her values. We represent love, and believe that everyone is perfect in God’s eyes. God, we ask for prayer for people to realize how hateful and intolerant the left truly is. We also pray that you start melting hearts in those that have been under their influence.

While we would be glad to have people who support Biblical values in Florida, the New York Governor needs true salvation in Jesus. So let’s not stop praying for her!

Sadly, this is exactly how she feels! Republicans are her “basket of deplorable”! It is even sadder that many people will still vote for her and others like her. Such hatred has no place in government. We need politicians who treat all people in the manner that God calls for; “Love your enemies”,
