What is a payday loan?

Payday loans are one of short term loan solutions available for those who need fast loan, i.e. extloans.com, lendup.com.

As a customer, you can take a take a payday loan by going to go to a payday store or you can take it from an online payday loan lenders. Below are some facts about getting a payday loan from a store or getting one online.

Getting a Payday Loan from a Payday Store

You can of course drive to your local paycheck store to see if they offer payday loans. However some of these stores may not be conveniently located close your home or work. Also payday stores, also referred to as paycheck stores, are often busy places because they offer other type check cashing services, money transfer, and other type of small financial services. So be prepared to wait in the line. Also you must have your picture ID and a second form of identification to prove your identity. You must also take in post dated check, which they will keep and will cash on the day your loan is due. In addition, payday stores probably want you to take your previous paystub(s) to prove you are employed, along with some bills that verifies your current address. Some payday stores may require you to take your bank Statement with you to prove that you have an open checking account. This way they can check your balance history ensuring that you make enough money to pay the loan back. In addition to all these, unlike popular belief, payday stores may approve you for a high risk loan right away. They may call your bank, your employer, and may require you to fax in more information. And as we said before, many of these payday stores are also check cashing stores so there may be a line or processing time that you will need to wait.

The Challenge

While the Freedom Party is already a political party by way of self-determination, in order to become "State recognized" the party must run a candidate for Governor who must receive 50,000 votes in the General Election in November. New York City Council Member Charles Barron stepped up to the challenge and is the Freedom Party's candidate for Governor. Eva Doyle for Lieutenant Governor and Ramon Jimenez for Attorney General are also carrying the banner of the Freedom Party across the state. (Click on the "Candidates" tab on the top of this page for more info about the candidates).

In order to get the Freedom Party's slate of candidates on the ballot, the Freedom Party was required to gather 15,000 valid signatures, (with 100 signatures each coming from 15 different congressional districts across New York State) from July 6th 2010 to August 17th, 2010. Gathered by all volunteers, the Freedom Party submitted over 43,000 signatures from all 29 Congressional Districts in New York State!!!

"The Challenges are Great, But Our People Are Greater!"

The History

The idea for an independent Political Party led by Blacks and Latinos traces back to the Mississippi Freedom Democratic Party (MFDP), created in Mississippi in 1964, to challenge the legitimacy of the white-only US Democratic Party. Fannie Lou Hamer served as a co-founder and a lead organizer, and received assistance from the Student Nonviolent Coordinating Committee (SNCC), Council of Federated Organizations (COFO), and many others.

Today, in 2010, most Black and Latino voters are registered democrats. Although representing a substantial number in our population, the Democratic Party has selected an all-white NY slate for state-wide power positions ignoring the equally or more qualified people of color. The Freedom Party will not stand by & allow the Democratic Party or anyone else to continue to take the Black &Latino vote for granted.

We are calling on all people of good will in the state to join the Freedom Party movement and vote for Freedom Party Candidates. It is a vote for dignity, self-respect and self-determination.
