Being involved can really get frustrating. This results from a determination to research the facts and not rely on the media to be honest and forthright with the information they provide as news.
The more involved I have become the more I realize that the media does little research and more or less just prints what they hear, especially when it comes to politics. If you follow them daily, they certainly don't appear to have a conservative side.
West Virginia ranks last or close to last in almost every bad statistic you can measure.
However, if you follow the media coverage of each situation, most simply write down statements provided by those responsible for the failures.
West Virginia has had a mostly Democratic government and unions since the 1930's. McDowell County produced more coal than any county in West Virginia. They now live in poverty and ignorance, as the coal is gone and the state's educational system is the worst in the United States.
Where are the unions and the Democratic government now?
We have three successful businessmen running for three critical positions. These men have proved themselves in the real world.
All have been trashed by the West Virginia media and the Democratic Party machine.
If we keep electing the same career politicians, we will continue to get the same bad results - a fact proved over and over again in West Virginia.
