I am a registered democrat but not for long, since obama took office I am very ashamed of my party, their ideas and their actions, it is unbelievable how this administration is easing closer and closer to destroying our country and our state. I feel that four more years of this mess and we will be bowing down to the chinese because they are close to owning us. We need change republican style. GOD help us.
YES, we need change republican style - like the Bush years!!! I believe Bush was a good man, but he was not a good president. The Republican years is what caused the U.S. to be on the road to destruction and Obama has tried to help, but the Republicans in Congress have done all they can to destroy him. God ahead and put a billionaire in as president and see where we are in four more years!!!

I grew up bare foot poor in WV -father got hurt and we were on assistance for years. I can't eat oatmeal or block cheese to this day. People who need assistance should get help. six siblings-those 3 that stayed on, at and near the assistance thru their lives are still there hanging on at the subsistence margins, living happily enough-sort of- but with really no dreams and always wondering..scurrying/strugglin g every way they can every day to try to make a buck-her or there.

Nothing wrong with that but it is so tiring to be worrying daily about money...hard to really enjoy life in fuller ways.
the one sibling who stopped assistance and got a little education past hs has her home paid for in NC. no retirement moneys

my other sister and her husband started their own small business with the help of a wealthy investor/govthelp and she and her husband have retirement moneys and shore property etc.dont have to worry about money as they pamper the grand children

My husband and i struggled and worked hard, he at his own utilty business for nealy 2 decades,and me with the federal govt regarding certain areas of law; some loans, lots of education and hard work ,no welfare assistance.
In the lean early yrs my husband hunted meat,all the time, grew veggies,he still does and we canned them. That is basically how we survived those hard times. He still is that way, a real hillbilly.
Now because I stepped away from the subsistence assistance pattern and was not ashamed to let people better off than us help us with advice-we never have to scrape for money, as we after many yrs are pretty comfortable, and can enjoy our children and their children-

So you pick em-you want a welfare state where everyone gets bare necessities to live at a bare level with no dreams and route 92 as the norm. Or, do you want a society where the american dream is still possible-you pick it
.Either way the truly disabled or those in real need will still get their subsistence living charity taken care of by either party

i know i am glad i took the chance to spread my wings and fly-i can only imagine how hard it is to keep asking someone for money.....GodBless America

Of course there are people that were raised on assistance and think that's the only way they can live BUT what about the hard working families that get down and out due to no fault of their own and need a hand up not just a hand out. If Romney gets elected then there will be no help for any one. The middle class hard working families will eventually become poverty stricken because their children will not have the resources to go to college and improve themselves. There will be no government agencies that will help you purchase a home or start a small business etc. The Pentagon spends 460 million dollars every 6 hours,$460,000,000.00 every 6 hours now you do the math. This is because a lying Republican president took us into wars we had no reason to start. Do you think Romney will take away from these billions to lower the deficit? There are too many republicans making millions off these wars. Do some research and see how Cheney and Rowe are still involved and making money off the deaths and destruction.

God has always had a hedge about WV...you better vote to stand for God...this is a serious debate for President...We have always stood for God and always will...God is gonna separate Christians from the world and you better hope you are on the winning side...Obama is not for God...he has made that understood....It's not a matter of Democrat or Republican, but for what is right and for God. Without God on our side we have failed as a nation...I don't know about you, but I'm for the man that believes in morals and the BIBLE...

Then you need to remember Jesus fed the hungry, ministered to the sick, cared for the children Just what do you think Romney is gonna do when he revokes everything pertaining to the needy. Don't think what he plans on doing has any thing to do with God. You can't furnish proof of any kind that Obama is not for God. You get on here claiming to be a christian and your comments alone prove you for what you really are. Jesus drove the money lenders out of the holy temples just what would he do with Romney?

I just want to add that Romney is a MORMON that believes in the Book of Mormons NOT the Christian bible. It is published by the Church of Latter Day Saints. His religion also believes that men should have more than one wife although in the USA they are not allowed to practice this. In countries that allow them to do this you will find men in their 50's and 60's married to 12 and 13 year old girls. Our Christian bible states marriage is between a man and a woman not a man and many children.

Even John McCain in the last election had the honor and decency to tell a matted haired old crazy woman that Obama was not a Muslim but an honest, good christian. Our constitution states that there is a separation of church and state. Religion should not be involved in the running of the government. Romney's religion is based on the teachings of a Prophet very much like the Muslim religion and has several things in common with that religion. More than one wife etc. I think God will judge each and everyone of us when the time comes by how we are as humans and how we treat other people. That includes bad mouthing someone when you know nothing about that person.

to owtf...It is obvious that you know nothing about the mormon church. They do believe in the book of mormon and they also believe in the Holy Bible. As far as the "more than one wife" thing that you believe mormons practice, that is simply not true! Check your facts before you critisize someones religion.I have known several members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints in my lifetime, all of them good, honest, hard working people and oh yeah...none of them had multiple wives (lol)

I made it perfectly clear that they are not allowed to practice this part of their religion in the USA maybe you need to learn to read and understand a comment before you condemn it. I have worked with and also have friends in the mormon faith and at no time was I questioning their hard work ethics or honesty. You can not tell me that out in Utah there aren't households with many women and one man. Just because they aren't legally able to marry more than one woman according to the law doesn't stop them from having their harems. I know this for a fact because I have visited people I have known over the years. There are households out there with 3 and 5 women living with and sharing 1 man and with as many as 20 and more children with this one man their father. They consider themselves married according to their faith. Maybe you are the one that needs to check your facts.

They may read the Bible but When I am out there to visit my old friends ; I go to their religious services and know that they preach from the Book of Mormon not the Christian Bible.

I have read OWTF's comment that you are referring to 3 times and at no time did they come across to me that they were criticizing the mormon faith nor did they speak badly about anyone in that faith. It is obvious to me that OWTF is more acquainted with the mormon religion and the people that practice that faith then you are. Just knowing someone in your lifetime does not make you an authority on their lives or faith. OWTF states that they have spent time both working with and in their homes so just maybe they know more than you do.

honey i KNOW the facts. I too have friends and FAMILY that live in Utah and practice the Mormon faith. They DO NOT SUPPORT THE PRACTICE OF POLYGAMY! There are people who claim to be of "Mormon" faith but are NOT members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. As for your opinion of Mormons in foreign countries, honey there are numerous of foreign countries that have no laws against and practice polygamy, of ALL religious faith (muslim for example). Members of the Mormon faith abide by the laws of the land and the Holy Bible. And yes you are right they do preach out of the Book of Mormon and the Bible.

As I stated in previous comment they do not do it in the USA because it is against the law but do in other countries what is your problem can't you read.??? I know that several families I described still go to a Mormon church for services because that is where they were introduced to me. MY friends family and myself were invited to dine with these families at different times that I have visited out there after church services so I know the circumstances of their home life.

You say you are a Christian? Why haven't ppl. like you been praying for our current President? God called us not to criticize leaders but to pray for them. Just b/c someone has a little blemish on their record doesn't disqualify them from entering the Kingdom of GOd. Have you not heard that Jesus paid it all and He wiped the slate clean for us through His shed blood. Thank God i'm not a judgemental midget like you.
Repent...or something more telling will find you out.
By the way, Mormonism is not compatiable with Christianity. There is no communion between light and dark. Obey God and not man and lean not to your own understanding. Tell your slacker pastor he is not preaching Gods Word correctly.

Wouldn't this be considered religious "socialism."

IF he wins at the end of 4 years there will still be 1% super rich and the rest of us will be their servants. Maids,butlers,cooks, yard workers, car washers, dog walkers etc., because that's just what they think of us to begin with. This man wouldn't piss on any of us if we were on fire. He has never went hungry or worried where the house payment or rent is coming from; had to figure out which bill to pay or how to keep the electric or heat on in the winter. The people that believe this man's flip-flops and lies are sheep and he is the wolf.

Finally someone who can see through what Obama has done to this country, NEVER in history have we had a man put us so in debt and sell us out to another country, We are now owned by CHINA, the debt is in the trillions, the whole country is falling apart while Obama vacations continually on the tax payers money, Obama is determined to eliminate our entire coal industry and backrupt this state, Obama is as much a millionare as Romney and what he doesn't have he takes and uses without a care in the world, A person has to have money in order to run for President, I have not nor will I ever see a poor person running for President,I can only hope and pray that Romney wins this election or this country will surely fall.

This is a direct quote from todays New York Times

Mr Romney has millions invested in a series of Bain funds that have a controlling stake in Sensata Technologies a manufacturer of sensors and controls for vehicles, aircraft and electric motors that employs 4,000 workers in China.
Two years ago, Sensata bought an operation that makes automobile sensors in Freeport, Il.
At the first meeting with the [lants 170 workers, Sensata managers announced that at the end of 2012 all equipment and jobs would be relocated, mostly to Jiangsu Province, China.
Workers have staged demonstrations pleading with Mr. Romney to intervene on their behalf.
Tom Gaulrapp, who has operated machines at the factory for 33 years said he fears he will go bankrupt after he loses his job on Nov. 5.
"This goes to show the hyprocrisy of this man," he said of Mr. Romney."He talks about how we need to get tough on China and stop China from taking our jobs, and then he is making money off shipping our jobs there." End of quote

This started two years ago before Romney was ever running for president and he very well could have stopped this from happening.
