Liberal Jay Rockefeller to Finally Retire in 2014, Creating Opening for Conservative Win in West Virginia

West Virginia's a bit odd. They vote Republican in presidential elections but in the last two major statewide races they picked the so-called "conservative Democrat" in both. Like many of the Great Plains states, their conservatism seems to be mostly social -- they seem to like some government intervention in economic affairs -- so any Democrat that calls himself pro-2nd Amendment and pro-life can win.

And then do things like vote for ObamaCare and taxpayer support of abortion and gun control and etc. And like the voters never seem to notice this pattern, but just vote for the next Democrat calling himself pro-2nd Amendment and pro-life.

But hope springs eternal.

5 I worry about just the thing you wrote about. I worry that in the past economic freedom candidates in the US won only because of social issues and potentially even due to some sort of tribalism among the white voters. I hope that is the not the case and but after last election I wonder!

25 WV has a class-warfare mentality. They think that, by virtue of their poverty (or even "exploitation" by mining companys ~100 years ago) that they are deserving of Federal government largesse.

It's not so much that they are dependent on government, but that they like to think they are getting something over on the 1%.

But, in reality, of course, the people who pay for their pork are not as wealthy as the recipients.

Its a place where if they don't know your family, you're not buying any property, FGS. If the GOP can find a truly local, been there for generations kind of guy to run, he or she might do alright.

AS long as they don't recycle perennial loser John Raese they might just have a chance to capture this seat.

because the odds are higher that more shooting sprees will occur than not occur

unfortunately for us and the Second Amendment, it's not a matter of if but when another shooting will occur

167 For WV, it comes down to government pork. It has for generations now.

West Virginians don't like government in their lives EXCEPT for the taste of the sweet, sweet pork on their plates. They like that taste so much they'll overlook how much they don't like the rest of government.

This leads to farcical stuff like the late Robert "Grand Dragon" Byrd forcing the U.S. Coast Guard to put two operations and control centers in deeply landlocked West Virginia.

Such a step is enormously inefficient and clumsy and costly for the USCG. Also, heartily cheered by every West Virginian. Because, pork. That's all you need to know. Because pork.

Don't expect any Rockefeller replacement to be an improvement. The fine folk of WV will simply elect another pork-slinger to man the line at the federal cafeteria.

The one thing TFG did well was in launching the attack early, prior to his second term even beginning.

We Americans tend to be easily bored and distracted by shiny objects. If they wait long enough, some of the pro-2nd amendment crowd will simply forget about the fight and then they'll sneak it in on us. Slowly eroding the rights away.

I still believe that taking guns won't be the method. I believe they will instead seek to make them obsolete by regulating ammo components to such a degree as to make ammo cost-prohibitive to most gun owners.

To be honest, the whole gun issue has surprised me. It was good to see the response of so many Americans suddenly seeing the writing on the wall and inundating the gun market. It had a voice all it's own.

And, yes, if Dear Leader goes as far as he's indicating, then I shall gladly become an outlaw too.

189 177 Soona,

When I was a kid I had a 12ga duster I made that I had engraved.

It was beautiful had "my heaven is a great hell" engraved in the barrels and I had a smile face on the hammerlocks.

I destroyed it on my 17th year's last day because it was illegal without a stamp.

I have NEVER broken a gun law since, but if ALL guns are illegal anyway why not have that m3 grease gun with OSS style integral silencer?

Why not reverse enggineer a deLisle carbine?

Fuck him he wants to make self-defense readiness illegal why honor any of it?

I miss my duster a lot like I miss knowing the government was getting out of the way of the energy sector.

In the end this battle is between those who want to be my life coach down to my toilet paper brand and light bulb versus those who want left the fuck alone.

I'll win eventually.

Tourist town, also very artsy. Lots of non-Tennesseean, non-Southern transplants. You may see some of the local teens rolling through town in jacked-up diesel 4x4 pickups with giant Confederate flags and music blaring from time to time. Overall, not actually "hickish" except for a large portion of the tourist population, who are from other parts of the South.

Since you're going in February, you might be able to get some skiing in at Ober Gatlinburg. Also, if you don't already have accommodations, I highly recommend renting a chalet with a view.

One more thing, I hope you like pancakes. I think there's a zoning ordinance there requiring five pancake restaurants per linear mile of street.

209 Someone here wrote a few days ago: Scratch a Catholic and find a Commie.

So true. The synoptic Gospels reek of socialism. The Evangelist Luke, who wrote the "Acts of the Apostles" just loved that commune in Jerusalem that St. Paul had to keep bailing out.

That's why I love the Gospel according to John. Otherworldly.

btw, want term limits for Congress? Ratify an amendment to "that little book."

216 Like many of the Great Plains states, their conservatism seems to be mostly social -- they seem to like some government intervention in economic affairs ..... And like the voters never seem to notice this pattern, but just vote for the next Democrat calling himself pro-2nd Amendment and pro-life.

220 1. Club For Growth and Jim De Mint don't have a better candidate than Shelley Moore Capito, who has huge name recognition statewide and who would hopefully run against Manchin. What happened to that guy, anyway? He lost, because NO STATE likes carpetbaggers unless they happen to be married to a popular former president.

2. WV has been run by Democrats for years, and they still enjoy a 2-1 registration advantage, as Dems love to point out.

3. It was only in the past decade that WV even turned red in presidential elections. They liked Clinton and Bush and hate Obama. If Hillary were the Dem nominee in 2016, she would probably carry WV.

4. Neither party has ever cut spending. Few people in WV pay taxes. Republicans need to work on messaging, because it's been too long since they've won an election.

5. That has nothing to do with whether mountaineers wear shoes, have teeth, play the banjo or fuck their relatives. So, just pick a nominee that can win and vote them in. If Republicans screw this up, that's three straight election cycles, and they've become as relevant as the LP.

yep, nothing like sanctimonious idiots like Demint going after a candidate that even had a slight chance of winning. Gotta earn those Heritage checks, right Demint?

Seriously, why do repub candidates even bother running anymore, even those who may not conform to strict conservatism like this lady in WV, just run Todd Akin everywhere, or maybe Sharron Angle.

dems in WV don't have to do much, the repubs are eating and ripping apart their own candidates all by themselves.

this seat is staying dem 1000%, Demint will make sure of that.
