Last I heard we the people vote in politicians... Last I heard politicians can make new laws. Last I heard - outside land owners have been raping West Virginians for generations but the real power is in the peoples hands.

A new world is coming soon. We now know about you.

With the ratifying of the U.S. Constitution, the owner of this Nation became "We the People". The People thru our Federal Government my possess any property in any State by "Emanate Domain". The currency that is used in barter is owned by "The People of the United States. The government only allows individuals to use it's currency for private or public transactions. If you actually inspect U.S. notes or coins, you will not see your name on any bill or coin, but you will see the United States of America, the printer and owner of the notes and coins. The Constitution decreed that the People of the United States is a collective "One of Many", forming the States of the United States of America. Only when the People as a whole recognize that they are part of a collective united by the Constitution will "We the People" form a more perfect Union.

When they stole the land from the native americans they called it manifest destiny.

And in 200 years folks will still be using coal. I used to drive a semi. pulled a 46 ft end dump. I hauled grain from the arkansas delta to facilities in illinois. then went and got a load of coal at a illinois coal mine and hauled it to a electric power plant. at the powerplant I got a load of fly ash and hauled that to a fetrlizer plant in ark or a portland cement plant in missouri. I like coal its black gold to me.

that's true nothing lasts forever but what other choice do we have because the wind mill idea don't work and I don't think anybody want a Nuc plant in there back yard and the waste that comes of that no one has figured out how to dispose of that yet exept bearing it in a mountain in the desart so until some one develops cold fushion power which they have tried then were stuck .dont get me wrong I'm not opposed to a better cleaner energy but the problem is the country has such diverse climates the certain things that work in California like solar and wind mills won't work in West Virginia or other mountain regions or lower land regions so unless we all move to California there's not much of a choice for energy and natural gas won't work because the by product from burning it is carbon monoxide which is extremely dangerous to the environment and people also the energy commission already stated that at the current energy consumption of the u.s power plants that if all were converted to natural gas we would only get 8 to 12 years and then natural gas levels would be so low the power plants would have to convert back to coal at a huge cost to consumers and there was a power plant that converted to straight gas and was unable to build enough btu's to turn the turbines at a sufficient speed to to create the proper amount of electricity to power a small city and had to convert back to coal. So until someone comes up with a cleaner better energy we're stuck ,and our president and representives dems and repub need to quit investing our hard earned tax dollars into energy programs that fail or declare bankruptcy after getting there money from them and invest it in people that will find that cleaner energy

the best solution to this whole entire mess is to split the old USA in two at the Mississippi and all you coal haters, tree lovers, environmentalists gather your socialist president and family, take the entire kit and kaboodle socialist government out of DC and any others, humanists or otherwise, who love socialism, leave, go west of ol' Miss and anyone west of the river who loves the old USA with its Consitutionalism come east of the river with us and you west of the river leave us alone and we dang sure wont bother you with your socalled great and wonderful socialism. San Fran would make you an excellent socialist capital, then you coal haters and tree huggers in WV now wouldnt have to look at all that ol' nasty environment you hate. you tree huggers would have those magnificent giant age old Sequoia trees to wrap your loving arms around and just imagine no coal dust. it would be your heaven on earth for you West Virginian haters of West Virginia. a perfect place for you would be the wonderful desert regions of the west. later, you coal hatin' tree lovin' critters.

lower, at one time Gold and Silver was used as legal tender by the U.S. People's government, where is it now? The People's government can remove al U.S. Notes and Coins at any time and issue you Marbles in it's place for all debts public and private. I can hear you now, crying about the People's government taking your hard earned Marbles for taxes. I'm not a history teacher, I am a student of History. I just hope in the future you don't lose all your Marbles.
