Don't let Kochs, Adelson run things

Editor:

This election is not about coal! It's about waking up the morning after the election to find the Koch brothers and Sheldon Adelson in charge. Adelson runs gambling casinos, the only non-union one in Vegas, and poured millions into Newt Gingrich's campaign, then Rick Santorum's, then took Romney off to Israel for a fund-raiser. You want Middle East foreign policy influenced by him?

The Koch brothers are into gas, oil, timber, coal and cattle. Also Teflon, Brawny paper, Dixie Cups, Lycra and StairMaster. Their father helped found the John Birch Society.

Their pet causes: Elimination of government regulations, Social Security plus privatization.

Ryan and friends are not deficit hawks. They voted trillions for wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, the richest in our country got trillions in tax breaks, and they let drug and insurance companies write a prescription drug program that barred the government from negotiating lower drug prices.

Then these phonies used the cost overruns they voted for to justify cutting Social Security, Medicare, Medicaid, education, public TV.

The next Supreme Court appointment will finish their corporate takeover. Stop it! Vote Democratic!

Obama, Rahall have earned re-election

Editor:

Barrack Obama is not my pastor. He is not the spiritual leader representing the United States. Barrack Obama is the president of this country. I greatly admire his courage and honesty when speaking of his personal beliefs. It is no one's business if I agree or disagree. President Obama's employment description is to enforce the laws, regulations, and rules of the constitution as determined by the Supreme Court. He is to ensure that all citizens have equal rights and opportunities. With a multi-national economic depression ongoing, President Obama has struggled relentlessly for an improved economy. He can only suggest solutions; Congress must provide the results. President Obama needs strong support to aid West Virginia citizens.

Congressman Rahall's job is to protect West Virginia interests when casting votes on proposed legislation. He also is responsible for all Americans. Laboring tirelessly on a multifold of committees and knowledgeable regarding D.C.'s political climate, Rahall votes with vision of the "end result." Often the outcome arrives several years into the future. Seldom, if ever, has Nick Rahall voted erroneously. Congressman Rahall has earned the privilege to continue working for us.
