Bob Henry Baber, Mnt

I was curious what a "Mnt" was. It is the WV Green party. Looks like Bobby Henry Baber is a Commie Pinko.

Hard to believe.

Supposedly the Republican Governors Assoc. pumped $2 million into this race. If I were them, I’d demand an accounting from the WV GOP....it is a place where money vanishes.

The Dem/union machine in WVA is just too strong for Republicans to overcome in a low turnout election.

Near 50% of the vote in and we are down 5% from what I see. Hope we can overcome the deficit, but I doubt it.

What’s up with Logan County?

McCain won this 54-45, and it’s almost 90 percent for the Dim here.

Almost all of the deficit is in Logan.

The dem dominance of this state must be related to the larger cities. When I visit the Berkley Springs, Cacapon, and other small mid state more southern towns, I see salt of the earth hard working folks. WV so very beautiful. Could it be that a few bridges and welfare checks are worth selling one’s soul to the devil?

Earl Ray is the state senator representing Logan County & surrounding. His old man was the Logan County sheriff, also convicted of election fraud & bribery.

What in the hell is the matter with those people?? Truly I don’t get it! At a glance:

*Taxes paid by the coal industry and by utility companies that make electricity using West Virginia coal account for two-thirds, or over 60% of business taxes paid in our state.
*The coal industry pays approximately $70 million in property taxes annually.
*The Coal Severance Tax adds approximately $214 million into West Virginia’s economy.
*Twenty-four million dollars of coal severance taxes collected each year goes directly into the Infrastructure Bond Fund.
*All 55 counties, even the non-coal producing counties receive Coal Severance Tax funds.
*The coal industry payroll is nearly $2 billion per year.
Coal is responsible for more than $3.5 billion annually in the gross state product.

With all the stats floating around why in the hell would the citizens vote in a democrat. Particularly when the marxist in office is shutting down mines?

What is it? ARE THEY STUPID???

MORE STATS AT A GLANCE:

*More than half of the nation’s electricity is generated from coal.
*In West Virginia 99% of the generated electricity comes from coal.
*There are currently 14 coal fired electric generating facilities located in West Virginia.
*Coal provides the majority of electric power in 32 states.

The problem in West Virginia is that the Republican party is not as organized from a grassroots level up as it should be. We need candidates to come from a grassroots level.

The Democrats in WVA are almost all pro-coal of course. They promise to fight the White House on it. Remember Manchin shot a bullet through the Cap and Trade bill in one of his final ads in 2010. People are gullible. Sad but true. The state is moving more and more towards the Republicans - especially in national elections. Unfortunately, people in WVA are used to voting for their favorite Democrat and the Dem/union machine is very, very strong. Very hard to overcome in a low turnout election. I'd love for us to win this one, but I highly doubt it. We had momentum. Given another week I think it could have been a different story.

Yes, but there is a long history to Democrat loyalty in WVA. Unionized mine workers have a long antipathy for mine owners. There is a lot of unrepaired damage from historic mining practices that really does affect people. West Virginia is a very poor state, one that has a significant addiction to pork (via Robert Byrd) and welfare. Mines are highly automated today, meaning that there really aren't as many jobs in the industry as there used to be.

QED

The candidates are not the problem! It’s the citizens! What the hell is the matter with them? Don’t they know how to read? Don’t they have access to news and to the Marxist’s speeches on what he intends (and is) to do with the coal industry?

If they vote a dem in...they deserve everything they get. I hate it because it is part of this country...

If this is a preview of the rest of the country we are finished and it is every man/woman for themselves because we are never going to overcome the ignorance and stupidity and the ‘Obama stash’.

From 1897 to 1933, with the exception of 1917-1921, the governors of WV were ALL Republicans. They were also in bed with the out-of-state mine owners and helped them exploit the miners. Memories are long in the coal fields.

Pro-Coal until after they are elected right? Really, it’s pathetic that after almost 3 years of the Marxist, that they cannot see the destruction he has inflicted and the destruction coming, then, as stated before, the population of WV deserve everything coming.

Unions...they disgust me. They’ve manage to drive out and shut down industry in this country and they apparently are in it to do the same to the Owners of the coal mines.

Why is it that these things are crystal clear to us while others refuse to see at all?

That tells me that the only thing that will snap them out of it is a complete collapse. Unfortunately, that collapse will not be isolated to them, but will be the entire country. And It is coming!
