Jenkins was a Republican, then switched to Demacrat to get elected. Along comes the money men looking for flip-flopper and who takes the money? Jenkins, now He switches back to Republican and turns his back on the people who elected him. Give the money back you received the last election from Demacrats. Two years ago he supported Rahall, gave speaches supporting Rahall. Also any miner or family member of a coal miner that votes for Capito should have their head examined. Her father went to a federal pen for stealing black lung funds. Did she benefit from any of this money? She will never tell. The apple doesn't fall from the tree.

As much as I have criticized Rahall, I agree with you on Jenkins. I do not trust him.
But you need your head examined if you vote for Tenant. Nothing against her and in another election, I might vote for her. But in this election, a vote for Tenant is a vote for Harry Reid, the vile and corrupt man in US politics. WV has an opportunity to take out Harry Reid, a bitter enemy of the working man and woman in this country.

All Rahall has done for wv is show up to cut ribbons when a new building is constructed . How many times have you seen him stand up against Obama? If any coal miner votes Rahall don't be crying when you lose your job.

Yes, I also agree with you about Jenkins, he is a piece of low life Republican $h!t. I don't agree with you about Shelley Moore, for she is also a low life piece of Republican $h!t. A vote for Shelley is a vote for John Boehner and a vote against the People of the United States.

And a vote for Capito is a vote for Mitch McConell. The man that filibustered his own bill after he saw the Demacrats were going to support his bill. The same guy that said before Obama had spent one day in office, the Republicans main goal was to make Obama a one term President . Not to help the US pull out of the economic trouble we were in, but playing politics with the future of our country. I don't like Reid, but come on Mitch. I don't think so.

Rahall isnt for coal this is true mo denying that. Jenkins is living in the past he uses your fear of losimg your good paying jobs. Neither one of them seems to ne talking about bringing jobs that pay as well. I mean coal is on the way out a lot of people are against it. Do you really care as long as you have a good job to go to in the morning. Im not against coal you can see which way the winds blowing though. I am for WV having good jobs that pay well I don't think any candidate is promising that outside of a coal mine. I love WV I want to see it succeed. I want someone whos here to do more than fill their own pockets.

The perfect storm for me would be if the republicans could win enough seats to take the senate, but McConnell lose in KY. I agree he is not much better, if any than Reid. McConnell would not be against coal like Reid.

Look up democrat on the net and see if the definition given is for a Socialist United States. In a Socialist State the govt. controls everything including the people. The citizens are completely dependent on the govt. for food, medical, housing ect. That is the way the democratic party is taking you. Look at Obamas moves since being elected.
July, look up Conservative/Republican on the net and see if the definition given is for a Fascist United States. In a Fascist State the government controls everything including the People. As per definition, Socialism is defined as a Government by the People, for the People and of the People, as in "We the People of the United States in order to form a more perfect Union". Oh! Yes! The U.S. Constitution is the most Socialist and Liberal document ever written. Live with it or join the Conservative/Republican/Fascis t/Tory Party.

Rahall hasn’t darken the media’s doors for months except for his political ads and all of a sudden he's all over the local news smiling and expressing how much his heart bleeds for WVian's.
What a JOKE
Tell ya who's as big a JOKE as Rehall.

Natalie Tennant

Tennant decided she better put out a political ad promoting coal and how it supports the WV economy while downing Obama .She came to the conclusion after launching a state wide survey a couple months ago to see where WVian's stood as far as who they were voting or leaning towards and where they stood on coal and the economy.
All of a sudden she's cutting off the electricity that coal supplies to the White house and Nation then says she wants to leave Obama in the dark.
"Her Hypocrisy is Obvious"!

Rahall was so scared to talk on the floor in the House of Rep. that he yielded all his speaking time to other Dems fearing his real views and who he's for and against will be exposed to voters. Meanwhile all that time he yielded to his Dem far left libs spoke for itself.
Guess what it wasn't for?“ WVian's”

Heres part of the problem right here. Democrats being called socialists and liberals. Republicans being told how greedy they are and called pretty much everything. When at the end of the day we arent any of those things. Most of us are just regular people who want the same things. They rip us apart when they involve us in their political mudslinging. I dont care who they are democrat or republican if they do wrong we should be there taking them to task together.

I agree, but it's time for the crusty complacent same old bunch to go.
All a person has to do is look around and see that they have failed.
It's a job the people put them in and the people can take them out, so vote.

Honestly I used to think voting was enough myself but it really hasnt been doing to well lately. Ive been thinking of what I myself can do. Any suggestions? I mean its a shame that the people we ask to do this job continually fail us. I think if theu say they are going to do something they need to have an outline of how they're going to do it. If they fail to do so they should also have to explain why they didnt. If its not good enough they should either have to face fines or jail time or both. Im also not talking about facing their buddys in power either I'm talking about real citizens.

Also lets say they did try everything but were blocked at every turn. Well I think those would have to be up for review.

That brings me to my other point of what needs to change with government. Why is it that you can only vote for the incumbents in your party. They're going to have an effect on all of us. I think we all need to be able to vote on both parties or whatever parties. At least when it gets to the big show both of the candidates should be more in line with all of us. It would I believe help do away with the extremists which most of America isnt. We are mostly regular people who compromise (and I dont mean that negatively) daily to complete our tasks. I mean to a certain point you do have to compromise to make things work not grind things to a halt with extremist ideals.

Definition of comprising with Republicans. The Democrats makes a wonderful Stew with the finest ingredients for the People. The Republicans will not let it pass if they can't add to the ingredients. So the Democrats compromise with the Republicans and let them add their ingredients so the Stew can go to the People. The Republicans Defecate and Urinate into the Stew. The Republicans say that the Stew can now go to the People, now that it's Bi-Partisan. You can not compromise with a Party that has nothing but $h!t and Pi$$ to give to We the People.

Honestly I think they both have their faults so to blame one and not the other is not fair. The democrats were for free trade as well and that has kinda screwed our job force.

This brings me back to my point that if we all had a say on the incumbents or do away with the 2 party system altogether. I think we would end up with politicians we might be more happy with as a country.

So you want to get rid of the two party system, that sounds just great, that way we will have a one party system, that is called Communism.

Not really you would have multiple candidates. This way hopefully less chance that lobbyists would be hitting up one or two parties theyd have try to get several. Also just for arguments sake have 5 parties so were not communists not that it was even a thought in my head. I mean look at all th varieties of food and other products we are offered in everyday life. Yet politics its either coke or pepsi I myself like dr pepper. Why is that one of the most important choices we have only comes in 2 flavors.
