Come on seniors, let’s get out and vote

I want to start by saying thanks to Moody Roberts and Karen McClung for their recent write ups. I was so glad to read something that made sense for a change.

As for me, I noticed that every time our representatives from West Virginia come on TV they would talk about how they fought Obama on our coal, took him to court and etc. Tell me why would anyone in West Virginia vote for and follow someone that is out to see coal stopped 100 percent? West Virginia is Coal — The president and Joe Biden have always hated coal. That’s never been a big secret. Why would our people support them to start with?

Also, the president is always saying we should tax the rich more. Excuse me, isn’t all those Hollywood star friends of his rich? And they love him. Just doesn’t add up, does it?

One more thing, seems like everyone is trying to scare us older people with Social Security and Medicare. Well, shame on you. We may be getting older but we haven’t lost our minds and we are still smart enough and tough enough to take a stand for God, our state and our country.

Come on seniors let’s get out and vote and show that we are still out here and we still have a say in what’s going on.
