Sad WV American

Beaver, WV

#1 Nov 6, 2012
WE all witnessed tonight the beginning of death , of the United States of America.WE have watched our fellow citizens turn blind eyes and deaf ears to a man , who for the past 4 years has taken away American rights and hand them over to illegals,our enemies , and has taken our money and given it to Nations that hate us and seek to destroy us. A man who has turned his back on it's citizens and its allies, and promised our enemies a free pass and and compromise and sold out our sovereignty .
Here in WV , a State whose greatest business was coal and all the businesses that strived within it's frame work.We listened and watched a man promise to bankrupt it and close it down and force it's workers to accept part time and less pay jobs instead.Yet the Citizens of WV still voted for him and worse yet voted for those who upheld him. A Governor, a House member and a Senator all who claims they fought against him, but yet their record shows they praised him.Yes most Voted against the man, but voted for those who lifted him up in this State. So no sense anyone expect the State of WV to ever be any better than it is today.Unemployed, under paid and unhealthy and misguided individuals once again has filled Charleston and Washington DC with the same Politicians who have helped destroy it.The same as this once Great Nation we called America.
When we watched this Nation weep and wail at the choices it's citizens made for her, as she struggled and bent and bowed to her knees in disbelief and cried in agony and in question of why anyone would want to see her die a death at the hand of the ignorant and unAmerican, who by a vote cast away their rights and her life to hand her freedoms to her enemies and her destroyers. As I watched her take her last breaths this night, and I watch the death pains cause her chest to heave in it's last attempts of breath as her citizens cheer and clap at her passing. there are no tears , no cries, no mourning for her in her streets, nothing but cheers and joy at her destruction, and no one cares to see , nor hear , nor understand what they Have done to her.
But across the oceans, her enemies rejoice as well, dancing in the streets and singing songs of triumph at her death.Now finalizing their plots and counting their victory won . Laughing and making mockery at her citizens who from within help destroy her without even one of them firing a shot within her borders.
And I watch her fleeting breaths and her body struggle to survive, I pray my days be over, so I do not have to see that last rise and fall of her last moment.........when she is no more, forever The United States of America.

May she Forgive you all .

Oh chile please...!!! If anybody across any sea is laughing at us it is not because of one dag on man, it is because everybody want to keep on arguing and caring on instead of trying to work together. Blaming and name calling, pointing fingers and hatred!! Worrying about whose pockets are fatter than the others. My goodness. WV aint gonna be no more f'd up than it has always been. Im not all political but i do know a pattern when i see one and thats people have been blaming Obama for everything that has happened and everything that is going to happen. Just mad. Have not given him a chance since his FIRST election- turning down/ against anything he came up with. Instead of working with him, foe the good of the country. Talking shit. Disrespecting him to no end. NO END! He is not a magician nor the messiah. He cannot fix every damn thing just like that. He is human and a politician, expect his ass to tell some lies. Things are learned and solutions are found by trial and error. If this way doesnt work, try something else. DAMN! People complaining..... Any of yall complaining ever wrote to the politicians or whoever you are unhappy with, or set up an appointment to discuss your issues?? I mean Lord have mercy!!! Well, whatever. >:\

Ok..

Look, I do appreciate the empassioned statement. But a couple caveats.

First and foremost, Our economic dependence on coal as a vocation is killing us as a state. It was time for us to start moving away from coal and diversifying about two decades ago.

And as for Romney, look. I do understand and can empathize with how you feel in this moment. Please understand what occurred here was not the country rewarding Obama anywhere near as much as it was about avoiding the clear and present catastrophe that would have been a Romney Ryan administration. A better candidate should have been able to wipe the floor with Obama given his history and track record.

So I am sorry things did not go yours or the conservative way, but even if you loathe Obama, the best thing for America happened and make no mistake that had nothing to do with the actions of Obama.

Like I said, the fifth time Republican, the fifth time we threw our Electoral votes down the drain. I bet Romney's friends on Wall Street are crying the Blues.

It's okay to cry...

Just get it out of your system quickly, the "Fiscal Cliff" is approaching fast, and unless partisan politics can be set aside over the next 6 weeks, we're going over the edge.

If that happens, we'll all need a tissue.

OBAMA WON! Republicans if you want to cry or jump off a bridge feel free to do so. That means more democratic wins in the future. HOORAY! Today is a great day!!!

This is defiantly a sad day for America. Did anyone here about the secret bill Oboma signed into law lately? Their combining DHS with corporations.

In case you haven't noticed, we are exactly where we were the day before the election. Same debt, same problems, same challenges. Speaking of bigots, you seem very bigoted yourself in your remarks about the Bible.

Big boys dont cry, but I wanted to.
Boehner and Obama better get over themselves and have a sit down very quickly. Obama is going to have to accept some cuts, real cuts not future promises and Boehner is going to have to accept some tax increases and you cant just tax the rich enough to get the revenue required. Whether people realize it or not, they voted for tax increases yesterday.

Regardless of who won, Romney or Obama, there were going to be tax increases to get us out of debt. It is a no brainer that this has to happen. I think during this term Obama will work on the deficit and Jobs to secure his legacy as one of the greatest presidents of our time. The deficit is tied to shrinking government and increasing taxes to some degree.

I hope you are right. Obama has not shown himself to be much of a pragmatist up to this point. It seems to me than energy production is the easiest and fastest way to prosperity and he would have to do an about face on that issue. Green energy is a long way from being profitable.

Not a pragmatist? Really? okay what decision did he make that was not one that in reality was needed. Killing the worlds worst terrorist? Bailing out the auto industry saving thousands of jobs? Slowing the recession and improving the economic recovery? Stopping the war in iraq and troop withdrawal in Afghanistan? Keeping Guantanamo Bay open so that enemy combatants don't have access to domestic courts? Ending the discriminatory process of dont ask dont tell? Gays should be able to bleed and die for this country just as red blooded heteros. Sounds pretty pragmatic to me. As far as green energy there has to be a start. This is the line drawn in the sand to tell big coal and oil that they will not monopolize energy anymore and you will see entire new sectors opened up. This will increase jobs in these sectors. I think this next term you will see a lot more compromise. It is going to get better in America. Just wait and see.

Can someone please explain a few things to me, like where have all the decent West Virginians gone? Have they all died off? Why do so many buy into the propaganda, not just buy into it, but live off of it?

If you look at the facts, WV USED to have a good track record. We used to vote mostly democratic, or at least we voted with the winning candidate majority of the time. But then ignorance and bigotry suddenly became a culture or way of life, and now we've become another drone-like red state.
